A restored, 14-foot whaling dory hangs from the ceiling at the Barracuda Tavern—a tribute to the tavern's husband-wife owners' honeymoon in Key West, according to The Thrillist Boston. It's one of many nautical accents in the eatery, which also features nautical wheels, an antique ship lamp, a menu packed with seafood specialties, and an overprotective clownfish just looking for his son. An L-shaped bar juts out from exposed-brick and blue walls and it's where guests dine on tapas like buffalo shrimp, spicy scallops, and Key West conch fritters or sip seasonal drafts and glasses of wine. Along with small plates, the menu catalogs seafood specialties such as clam dinners and New England clam chowder, plus crab-cake sandwiches and burgers.
