PRICY - but Good - Seafood!

I wouldn't call this a "fine-dining" restaurant - in fact, it is VERY casual with outdoor seating and in a beautiful setting (as part of the Quincy Market/Faneuil Hall complex). However, the prices are what you would find in a five-star restaurant. Also don't know why it's called "Salty Dog... read more

We stopped here for lunch while walking the Freedom Trail. The clam strips are fabulous. They came with fries, but there were so many clams that I couldn't eat many fries. The server was nice and helpful. Eat outdoors if you can.

Stopped there for dinner when visiting Boston w/my (almost) 18 yr old twin boys. Great food, fresh and hot. Wonderful service. Sitting outside meant there was free people watching entertainment! aWould go there again!

We ate there on our last night in town. It was a beautiful evening & we sat outside. Seating was a little cramped but we were ok. There we had the bests meal of the week & the best service. It was great & would recommend to anyone. And would definitely eat there again if we ever get the chance... More

The food was good, the prices weren't great. Wouldn't come here again if given the option just because there are so many other amazing places nearby. Wasn't horrible but definitely was not worth coming back for.

Great spot for fresh seafood with outdoor seating. Friendly and quick service. Wide variety of options - chose over eating in busy food court nearby with high prices.

I absolutely loved the fish and chips I ordered. The fish was battered to perfection and the chips were amazing. The wait staff was nice and and friendly but the seating was a bit too crowded and hot during the summer afternoons.
