We had 8 hrs to kill in between flights during our layover in Boston so we ventured downtown to the Quincy Market with our friends who know Boston and had a late lunch here at the Salty Dog. It was very busy for a Friday afternoon and we were fortunate to get an outside table fairly quickly and the line... More

We were doing the "Tourist" thing around Boston, and ended up at the salty dog for lunch. It's full of tourists, (Us included) so they aren't exactly seeking repeat customers. The service was fine, beer was good. We selected a 1/2 sandwich and mug of chowder lunch. Enjoyed the chowder, (A touch on the salty side, but I like that)... More

Sat at the outside patio which was nice. Had an oyster shooter. Can't go wrong there. Also had a baked quahog clam that was delicious. Then came the shoremans scallops broiled. Huge disappointment. No seasoning at all that I could detect. After adding salt on my own they were better. If you like your scallops seared they don't have them.... More

Stopped by for lunch and a beer. Fish nice enough but nothing special. Had to ask for iced water, felt it was a burden for the waitress to bring me glass. Food was delivered fast and the whole experience was a little rushed. More of a pile em in and shove em out place!

We sat down, ordered drinks and only after the drinks arrived did the waitress tell us that they were out of scallops and shrimp. Practically half the menu became unavailable to us instantly!!! It would have been nice if she shared this information with us before we ordered drinks and settled down with 4 children. We asked for some bread... More

When we arrived at Faneuil Hall, there was so much to choose from so we picked was was in front of us, Salty Dog! I'm happy we did. It was super busy. We were hoping to sit outside but the wait was about an hour so we decided to sit inside which was fine. It smelled a little funky but... More

I'm on a restricted diet and the staff here are very good about accommodating that. I've been here twice and have had the grilled scallops both time. I have them grilled plain with a bit of lemon juice and they're the best I've ever had. It was served with sauteed mixed vegetables and a plain baked potato. We sat outside... More

This may be an incomplete review because my husband & I were unable to even eat in this establishment. When we arrived, we both went to the restrooms to wash our hands and realized immediately that BOTH restrooms were unbelievably disgusting.....absolutely too disgusting to describe here! Apparently the wait staff was aware of the situation as they could be heard... More

We wandered into this restaurant one evening after checking out the Market and we were so glad we did. It was easily the best seafood my husband and I have ever had. We had the calamari, the sea scallops and capers, and the Lobsterman's Casserole, and all were fantastic. The portions were huge but we were happy to take our... More

Late lunch. Went after a Freedom Trail walk. (do go to one of those!) Seated downstairs, 3 adults, an 8 yr. old and an infant. No one else in this downstairs area with us. Highchair was available. Server was prompt (of course with just us!) She was pleasant and checked back with us often. We had strip clam dinner, fish... More
