Nothing special

The food was good but nothing special. I had the baked beans since it's the thing to do and they were good but again nothing special. Overall it's more of a tourist stop than anything a place to check the box.

We arrived for a late lunch and were expecting the same atmosphere as our visit 30 years ago. Although the place has not changed decor, the atmosphere is that of a regular diner. Food was good, nothing special, the broiled seafood platter was a bit pricy but cooked well, albeit on the cool side temperature wise as was our carrots.... More

This was ranked in the top 10 by The Travel Channel show "The Best Steaks in the US," but for the most part a disappointment. My boneless cowboy ribeye with melted blue cheese was good, but my business colleague's prime rib, which Durgin Park is known for, was marginal at best. The clams chowder and cornbread was very good, I... More

In the historic Faneuil Hall district, this restaurant is a classic foundation. Eat upstairs and be seated family style, with new friends you can meet. Famous for their prime rib and baked beans, you won't go away hungry. Very good chowder and a full menu with lots of choices.It's not fancy, but very satisfying. Our group ate here on a... More

This place is huge - and not surprisingly, the noise and atmosphere is loud. There was wide selection and the food was just OK. Service a little below average and price OK considering the very central location.

Had the Prime rib which is listed as a specialty of the house. My wife had the Cowboy ribeye. Both were cooked perfectly medium rare as ordered. Since the steaks and rib roast are dry-aged and are at a premium price, I thought they would be more tender than they were. Not that they were tough (that is too strong... More

My wife & I have been coming here for over 50 years, and love it! Some times one needs to keep in touch with Tradition, and Durgin Park restaurant continues to do so. Rustic Old Boston eatery that traces it's roots back to 1742 is a must experience for history buffs. For the tradition searching people and those that like... More

There have been changes to Durgin Park over the years, but on our recent visit I was happy that the clam chowder is still the best I've ever had. It's so creamy and chock full of clams! We also enjoyed little neck clams, raw. These were disappointing in that they were really small and not well cleaned. They were nice... More

Was in Boston yesterday with a friend at lunch time We both have had lobster and clam chowder there over the years. We sat outside since it was a beautiful day. I ordered the lobster salad. Lobster portion was very small for 22.99. Greens were boring and occasionally wilted, very cold. Choice of dressings was uninspiring. I know that restaurant... More

Went with a group of 6 of us. I had heard that this restaurant had gone downhill recently, but boy, was that person wrong. I have been in the mood for Turkey, and was very much not disappointed. Durgin Park is in the North shops of Faneuil Hall. If your back is to Faneuil Hall, turn Left. If your back... More
