I used to come here many years ago. My husband brought me to Boston for the weekend and I was anxious to show him all my old favorite places, including Durgin park. I was looking forward to fried whole belly clams. We met my friend school and her significant other for dinner. We were never given any corn bread. The... More

We visited Durgin Park on a recent trip to Boston. The wait staff, although usually known for their snarky fun loving rudeness, actually seemed tame! On our last visit many years ago, I was yelled at for coming up the stairs before I was told to... This time a sign that actually said to come on up! For a late... More

We stopped here for lunch and had a lot of food for a reasonable price. The pot roast with baked beans were great, and the Mac Cheese was huge. Our server was attentive, chatty and engaged. The restaurant decor is old fashioned, as are the servers outfits, but that's part of the charm of this tourist centric place. If I... More

The food was also not very great. The service was slow and not accurate. We ordered orange juice and got something else instead, and the waiter was arguing with us that it was orange juice. And as I mentioned, one TV set on football during World Cup??? Ok for kids.

We were looking for a late lunch after our walking tour along the Freedom Trail. My husband remembered Durbin Park from a trip to Boston many years before. He ordered the corned beef & cabbage which he loved. I ordered the crab cakes which were very good. The only disappointment was the bacon-wrapped scallops. If you're going to go way... More

Durgin Park was recommended by a business associate familiar with Boston. A must visit he said. As a one time experience, Durgin Park was interesting and the food very good. A bit noisy and communal in nature, it wasn't the ideal place for a business dinner. However the service was great. Food good and good value. The mussels, clams and... More

The service was poor and the food was not much better than that. It took over a half hour for our food to come out and the server never checked back with us to see if we needed more soda or water. Server was border line rude for some reason. The restaurant atmosphere is below average. You can find a... More

We stopped in to Durgin Park in the Faneuil Hall market for lunch. The bartender was super friendly and quick. My wife and I had bowls of chowder and ice cold beers with a dozen oysters. It was a great break to get off of our feet. The chowder was delicious and the oysters were ice cold, shucked well (no... More
