The beer and food was excellent but the interior was old and dated. The tone I had was excellent along with the Yankee pot roast and the crab cakes were among the best we had.

Unfriendly staff and it was too crowded. The food was overpriced. I know Durgin has a reputation for its rudeness all in fun. But this was over the top.

We went on a Saturday night and had their trademark Prime Rib which was cooked perfectly. while on the pricy side, this place is alwasy a hoot to visit. Dinner for 3 came to $105.00 without the tip, not extremely bad for Boston. service was excellent.

Food was good but nothing special as was the service. Absolutly nothing wrong with this place but nothing that stood out either. We had one person in our party that was having a birthday and when we told our waitress, she got a group together and came over and sang happy birthday with a sundae(and the charged us for the...

I have been eating at this place since 1948 and not much has changed. There are still the huge servings of roast beef, and the invariable dessert is their Indian Pudding, not to be equaled anywhere. The place is now in the middle of shops and other restaurants, not like the 1950s when it was all butcher shops and decrepit... More

We LOVED Gina.....a great asset to this establishment!! Being a southern gal, I am not in love with sweet corn bread and to be very honest no one finished their Boston baked beans....too sweet. We like our tea sweet and our beans tangy?

I Make sure Even If I only make It here for desert, To always go to Durgin Park for something. I had their Strawberry Shortcake , my Husband had clam chowder. AS always so good. If visiting the Freedom Trail Area It is worth going. go Upstairs for full effect.

We went here based on the reviews and we were disappointed. The food was just ok and the waitress was not friendly. I would not waste a trip to this restaurant when there were better food choices. Sadly disappointed.

I was a little hesitant about the restaurant, but boy was I wrong. The food was served quickly and the waiters were all more than helpful. The food was comfort food with a twist. It was nothing like I had tasted before. The corn bread was so good with butter I had to ask for a box to go. The... More

We had no idea as to the size, or the level of great food served here ! It looks like a small hole in the wall. There are a couple floors, along with a bar and outdoor area here.Our service was excellent, and the food.... very, very good. We both had prime rib, which is their specialty. My husband had... More
