Great food and drink

My wife and I went on a recommendation of a friend. If you are looking for a comfy intimate dinner place, this isn't it. The food however, was exceptional. The baby back ribs and their Boston baked beans are easy to recommend. They also offer a Massachusetts only, on tap only, great beer. Sam Adams... read more

We were in town for just 2 days, mostly to go to Fenway, but our big meal splurge was this experience. Shared tables, great service, excellent food at not too bad of a price. We loved it. Would definitely go back because we heard the beef is great.

We sat outside people-watching on a lovely evening. I ate the Boston Schrod - a local specialty - and, as is so often the case in coastal cities, the fish was amazing. My friend's chicken looked, and apparently tasted, delicious too. We didn't book, mid-week.

We were looking for a place to grab a quick lunch before heading to the airport and read about this place in Lonely Planet. I was excited to try the clam chowder but was soon to be disappointed as there were little or no clams or any other type of seafood in the bowl. It was more like salty potato... More

I have enjoyed Durgin Park for many years. The food is basic New England comfort food. The chowder, the beans and the meats are all served In abundance and the ambience is homey, considering the size of the place. Gone is the caustic charm of the waitresses in the pre PC era, but the staff is friendly and efficient. Enjoy... More

We stopped in on a Sunday afternoon and had a cold beer in the very accommodating barroom and loved it. Promised ourselves to come back later in the week for dinner after seeing how good the scallop appetizers and prime rib looked. My wife had the pan seared halibut, which was pretty well burned on one side but perfect on... More

We decided to drop in to have a drink or two on the way through Quincey Market. The atmosphere is very English Pub, which we adore, and the bartender was crazy knowledgeable about their extensive selection. A round or two later, we decided to nibble a bit (being that it was happy hour and all...wink) and were pleasantly surprised by... More

We had a great time at Durgin Park. But it was because of the company and not because of the food. The food was fine, but I'd hoped for a lot better than fine. The calamari was so-so and the sirloin strip steak was good, but not great. My wife's "medium" prime rib came back very rare. The service was... More
