I always visit the Barnacle with my aunt when in town and it is such a treat! A favorite spot for hot dogs and french fries as kids, I cannot get enough steamers as an adult. Portions are plentiful! And appetizer is good for two as a meal! Usually have the lobster roll or tuna but had to try the lobster bisque this past visit. Very good, not too heavy or creamy. French fries and hot dog still the same classic and thoroughly enjoyed by my toddler niece who is always well received by the staff. A "sippie cup" is always promptly provided! Complaints of size and not enough room to seat are worth noting but this is a typical NE local spot, waterfront, and that is just part of the experience. Also get used to cross room conversations as this is a very friendly local hangout, which is just more of a testament to the great food and service at the Barnacle! Can't wait for the next time!
