Recently visited Faneuil Hall and Quincy Marketplace on a warm, sunny spring day prompting us to choose the Salty Dog for lunch so we could sit outside and enjoy the weather after a long, brutal winter.

Excellent seafood and generous servings. Neat unique atmosphere. Only downside - the bathroom is right next to the kitchen and could use an update.

After a long and snowy winter Boston finally got a break the weekend of April 10th. It was a warm, sunny day and Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market was filled with people. I was warmly greeted and I asked if I could be seated at the best table for people watching while I eat. The hostess did not disappoint me.... More

My sister and I thought the food was great! It's a quaint place....you practically have to walk through the kitchen to get from the bar to the dining area. But the staff were very friendly and the seafood was fresh. I highly recommend the patriots pasta! Delicious!!!

Loved the location of this outdoor bar at the Quincy Market. Friendly bar staff, fresh oysters and amazing clam chowder added to the experience. This is the place to go for a quick bite and pick me up after touring all day. Did not want to leave!

After flying in from Texas we were starving and the youngest daughter wanted lobster for supper. While walking the Faneuil Hall area we spotted the sign & steps leading down....and found a quaint and charming restaurant. The lobster sandwich was just what the dear daughter wanted. I had the scollops where were great. Our server was courteous and the food... More

This is another hole in the wall restaurant, with a tiny bar inside that's situated next to the kitchen. However, in the summertime they have a larger bar/restaurant that they set up outside that runs until the end of October. It's in Faneuil Hall next to the stairs going into the main food court building. If you love fried fish,... More

The chowder here is quite delicious. The employees were extremely courteous as well. It has a fun cute feel to the downstairs restaurant that can only be accessed outside on the sides of the Main building in the marketplace.

They say you pay for what you get and it is probably a fair statement for the Salty Dog. The food is of a decent standard but the presentation is generally lacking. In context, you will be paying less that Legals or McCormick and Schmick, so you should expect a slightly lower standard. The food isn't too bad and it... More
