The Salty Dog at Faneuil Hall in Boston

Boston Massachusetts: Faneuil Hall

I love historic Boston. The Salty Dog Seafood Grille & Bar at 206 Faneuil Hall Marketplace in Boston feels old.

If you eat outside at the tables on the cobblestone sidewalk, or sit at the bar, you can watch the Faneuil Hall tourists. It is a great people watching venue. Inside there are two bars and a small dining room. Dark wood and brick walls enhance the relaxed atmosphere.

When we arrived at the Salty Dog, we initially sat outside. Since it was cool, we descended the old stone steps into the bar. As we waited, hoping to get a seat, I was impressed that the bartender acknowledged us promptly, because he was busy preparing drinks and serving food. He got us three seats at the bar.

We enjoyed New England clam chowder. It was creamy with diced potatoes. The best part of out meal was the raw oysters with lemon, horseradish and cocktail sauce. They were fresh and salty. We also had fried oysters served with tarter sauce. They were fair.

My sister ordered fish and chips with no-mayonnaise coleslaw. The slaw was crisp and slightly sweet. We loved that it was flavorful and didn’t have mayonnaise.

I had a Bloody Mary with a cooked shrimp (that was still in the shell) and a large celery stalk. You could taste horseradish in the drink. It was average at best.

I would visit again because of the friendly atmosphere and congenial bartender. I would order raw oysters and a beer.
