Stopped here for lunch and a few beers after a tour. Good clam chowder and fried clams. We like trying a variety of different beers and the waiter brought me a few samples to try before ordering a glass. Waiter was very nice and made the experience fun.

By busy Faneuil Hall, we grabbed a table at Salty Dog hoping for a quick snack - the oysters were delicious and delicate, the crab cakes were also great. Much better than I expected.

Have walked past this place on many previous trips to Boston...now kick ourselves. Oysters were some of the best yet. Fresh scallop dinner was fantastic, as was the Cajun Shrimp Appetizer. Staff were incredible! Attentive, friendly and all patient with our prairie humor :) Will definitey return!

I travel heavily for both business and pleasure and just spent the weekend in Boston. Went to the Salty Dog which I'd enjoyed on past Boston Trips. I'll start with the food was great as usual but the server was either incompetent or just did not want to be there. We listened to the other servers with tables around us... More

Had a great seafood dinner here last night. Fish was fresh and wait staff was helpful and professional. Indoor seating is limited and definitely has a "whole in the wall" feel to it, but food is great. Prices were reasonable and the lobster tip, scallops and seafood pasta all rocked...as did the raw oysters!

The bartender was great in his recommendations and personality - we felt as if we have been going there for years! very personable! We had... More

You never know what you're going to get when you go into an unknown restaurant, especially if it's near a major tourist attraction as the Salty Dog is (right outside Faneuil Hall). But my husband and I were both pleasantly surprised, it turned out to be one of the best places we ate on our recent vacation. Faneuil Hall was... More

My husband and I were in the Boston area for a very quick stay to see our daughter compete in a cross country meet. The hotel she was staying in was very close to Quincy Market, so it made our decision easy to choose the Salty Dog. And what a great pick! The food was fresh and delicious! From appetizers... More
