So, my five year old loves crab-- picking through legs and claws for the meat (a Bay-area Dungeness excursion last year started this). We've gotten a few at Summer Shack, but is there a better place to go in Boston/Cambridge? I'm definitely not looking for an "all you can eat" type set-up-- I'd rather get fewer, better ones. Casual rather than fancy. Thanks for your ideas!

  1. People are going to crucify me on here for saying this...but the Barking Crab has a 4 pound crab bowl that I think is terrific. Also, great place for kids. I'm a HUGE crab fan and look forward to more people posting here as I hope there are more options in the area that I don't know about!
