I've had many meals at The Barking Dog over the past 6 years. I was there recently and tried a sandwich from the new menu. It's a warm & casual place, family friendly with a lively, welcoming vibe. After the dinner hour the bar crowd builds up and its a Good place to settle in & watch a Sox game.... More

Love this restaraunt's big sister down the street? Course ya do, it's excellent. Well Barking Dog is Ale House's darker little sister; so if you like that amazing food, but want a more pub/bar-like atmosphere where maybe you can sit at the bar and catch the game, this is the place for you. Me? I love both. I come for... More

Great neighborhood spot - great burgers and fries. "Cheers" kind of place: friendly and cozy. Good service at a fair price.

The dog is where to go when you want a "good meal" for a fair price. Always consistent with food, beer and service. From great burgers to sandwiches to steaks and pasta. We always feel like it's good home cooking.

We arrived in Amesbury after a transatlantic flight and were looking for something light to eat. This place hit the spot, the portions were generous and very good. Our server Lesli was what made it memorable, she was great, efficient knowledgeable and very helpful. She made two weary travellers thoroughly enjoy our first evening in New England. If we are...

Every town should have a a restaurant/bar like 'The Dog'. All the staff are welcoming and friendly and they try to make everyone, local or otherwise feel at home. This time I strayed from my normal burger which is definitively the best in town to a BLT which is delivered in a Pita and is stuffed full of food. My... More

We were in Seabrook, NH on vacation and I read reviews that this was a good place to eat. It was just ok. I did go out of my way to go here because the name was cool my kids said. Its a dark pub as far as lighting, the bartender was the waiter, He wasn't overly friendly or helpful.... More

The chicken salad pita is out of this world!! Big portions, made to order. Barking Dog is a great spot for pub food with some creative options. The food is reasonably priced and the value is great- big portions.

We had a late Father's Day lunch here, spur of the moment, and really enjoyed it. The atmosphere was cute, though small if going during a more crowded time period. My husband LOVED the artichoke chicken pita, and my mac and cheese was tasty.
