Fresh off the plane, we were ready for our first Lobster Roll of our Cape Cod vacation. We were making our way to Falmouth and did a search for the best Lobster rolls near us. We stumbled upon The Barking Claw and sought it out. Not knowing that it was a roadside cart, we drove right past it... but once... More

I saw this and had to stop. glad we did! We ordered a couple of hot dogs, some lobster rolls, and a quahog. The lobster rolls come in three sizes: mini (2oz), regular (4oz), and jumbo (6oz). I'd recommend going for the jumbo which is double the price of the mini but well worth it. It is a simple roll... More

This is a cart that has picnic tables for eating. I enjoyed the lobster roll because it was lobster claw meat without celery or other fillers.

My wife and I found this place back in the summer of 2015 and went there 3 times during that stay. Our sister in law who lives in Falmouth goes back quite often for these rolls. There are 2 size options and the rolls are filled with claw and knuckle meet with no mayo, just some warm butter added. Hot... More

I fell into the trap- tourist trap,, that is. They claim to have the best lobster roll on the Cape. Really???? I think not. $14 dollars for what, the lobster didn't come close to filling the hot dog roll. No mayo only butter which by the way was put on in such a way that it leaked out all over... More

The lobster rolls are very good, great flavor, and very friendly staff. It's just a food cart in the parking lot of Gumpy's pub, but great, and really reasonable for a large portion of lobster. The regular size, they have three sizes, was $19. Grab a lobster roll and stop into grumpy's for a beer. Nice lunch without breaking the... More

Barking Claw was great food- in a not as great atmosphere. The lobster roll was traditional and simple- made with lettuce and fresh, chilled water lobster. The stuffed quahog clams were excellent. Overall, the food was to die for. However, the restaurant itself is actually a roadside stand, which means you have to eat in your car, which can be... 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 has gotten it right! You will get the most original delicious lobster roll in town...

Cart sets up from 11AM to 3PM daily, offering lobster rolls (3 sizes, from 2 oz of meat to 6 oz of meat, from $12 to $26), "snappy" hot dogs, and stuffed quahogs. We had the dogs and the lobster rolls. Meat was all claw and knuckle, seemed to be fresh. No mayo or fillers, just one piece of romaine... More
