I've enjoyed eating Lobster Rolls @ quite a few places in the Northeast. Today I had the best Lobster Roll ever @ The Barking Claw. I asked for an extra dose of hot butter & celery salt. Every bite was sweet & succulent. I really...More

Total tourist trap. The service was good but the food was almost not edible. The outdoor seating was nice but nothing on the menu that we ordered were done well.

The owner has done a great job of serving an old fashioned lobster roll. Filled with chunks of lobster meat and drizzled with butter. So many places shred the meat and add tons of mayonnaise so you can't taste the lobster. But the barking claw...More
