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

This is the type of restaurant that you go back to if you've been to Boston before just because you have fond memories of the place. It is located right in Faneuil Hall so it is quite convenient. If you've never been there before, you go because it is a landmark. The food is good, bordering on very good but... More

Restaurant is located next to Quincy Market. We ate about 4:00, so we were lucky to be in between lunch and dinner rush, as they get pretty busy. I ordered Yankee potroast , my son ordered lobster, and my wife had a turkey plate, all were very, very good. I especially enjoyed the butternut squash and made from scratch baked... More

Grabbed a small table outside for a Friday night dinner with the family. Cool, cafe type of vibe, watching the goings on at Quincy Market/Faneuil Hall. Service was average overall. Decent selection of beer on tap. Really good lobster rolls and salmon entree. Maybe a little bit on the pricey side, but it is right in the "thick of things,'... More

What a wonderful memory I have of Durgin Park. It was wonderful compared to other places years ago. No longer does it have the wonderful, bossy, waitresses. The hustle, bustle, excitement is gone. Now just another restaurant in a tourist market of chain and franchise shops. The food is still good, but for the prices I would like better service,... More

Pros: Friendly service, attentive waitstaff. Cons: Luke warm food, clam chowder seems to be missing clams..... It's not a terrible place, it's just kinda "ho hum."

Oldest restaurant in America. Food was very good - not cheap, but good atmosphere and decent portion sizes. We almost didn't go because reviews said service was horrible. We had the opposite experience. Our waitress, "Mary Poppins" was fantastic and super helpful.

My father has always told my brother and I that we have to eat at Durgin Park if we ever go to Boston. We went to eat there on our visit in June. it lived up to his raves. My Yankee pot roast was one of the best meals I've eaten in a restaurant.
