Prime rib!

Very good . . . I know why it's a house specialty! Server went the extra mile to find out exactly how I wanted it cooked.

None of the food stood out as great (even the baked beans), and the service was not really friendly. I can't recommend it.

Durgin Park is located in the North Building in Quincy Market. It has a nice terrace at street level and a large seating area upstairs. We sat upstairs. Their menu is filled with local specialties such as Clam "Chowdah", lobster rolls, and so on. Their atmosphere is historic / vintage and well earned since they've been around for a while.... More

We decided to stop at Durgin Park to try the Boston Baked Beans after seeing it on Travel Channel. While they weren't bad, they made me realize that I prefer the ketchup and brown sugar beans rather than the Boston molasses variety. We also tried the clam chowder which was decent but nothing special. It is an interesting place, but... More

We came here for dinner before an event at the TD Garden just to check out an "old timey" Boston tourist trap we'd walked by 100 times before but never went to. It was a solid decision. We set upstairs by the windows. Limited 'ambiance' sitting at a long table, close to other groups at the same table down the... More

I was last at Durgin park in the early 1990s. Couldn't wait to go back for some classic New England Seafood. I was not disappointed. SO GOOD!

We had a reservation for 2pm and were surprised that they could take us right away. Business was slow considering it was St. Patrick's Day weekend but the weather was rainy so that's probably why. By the time we left the joint was jumping. Food came quick, was hot and everyone enjoyed what they had. They let my daughter and... More

My wife and I came here as part of a culinary tour of Boston. This was OK. but certainly not the highlight of the day. The chicken tortilla wrap was decent, but uninspired. The Boston baked beans tasted mostly of molasses. It is a very historic venue, so worth a visit for that reason. Certainly not an epicurean delight

I was with visitors who had never had the opportunity of visiting Boston so I booked this restaurant as it has reasonable reviews and is located in the famous Quincy Market. We had a table by the window which isolated us from most of the noise, our server however was able to find us and he certainly made sure we... More

Look, I know this place is known as touristy, but I still believe it's a place you must visit on a trip to Boston. I got the chowder and prime rib (of course). It was great. Oh, and the strawberry shortcake is worth trying. All in all, a nice experience and really good food. Don't write it off because it's... More
