We enjoyed going here for lunch, the wait staff was attentive and friendly. The food was fresh and warming, a great bowl of clam chowder on a cold day. We will definitely return.

Started the night at the Durgin Park bar. Asked to order beer and the waiter flipped out on us. Started a tirade about how he was waiting tons of tables. Then we went upstairs for dinner. Service was slow. Took 15 minutes to order drinks. Someone in my party ordered Shepard's Pie and the beef was pink. Sent it back... More

We went on a recent Saturday night and scored a window table. Laura was our waitress and she did an exceptional job all around. Started with the corn bread that just kept coming. Had a bowl of clam chowder that was good. Meals included the fried whole belly clams, nicely done and not greasy. Also had the ribs and good... More

The menu is very broad but all the food I had was delicious. I had the fish chowder and fish and chips, my husband... More

DUrgin Park was recommended by a friend from Maine who accompanied us and we had an enjoyable meal although the interior was a little dark on a beautiful day and there were no outside tables. Steak was good as was the fish. If in doubt where to eat around Faneuil Hall don't be afraid to try DP

This place has been in business since 1827! Their specialty is the prime rib. I got their "scrod" which is a white fish that was out of this world. It is served with mashed potatoes, spinach and a peice of corn bread. A tradition of this place is the sassiness of the waitresses! Adds spice to the food! If in... More

There are probably already bazillion reviews of DP, so I will just tell you why I liked it. It had been maybe 10 years since my last visit, so it was off my radar when eight of us went looking for an early dinner. We had already walked out of several restaurants in the North End (way too crowded), and... More

Plenty of staff,no customers,can't understand why everything was ice cold.Waitress knew her stuff,beyond that hard to recommend anything ,but second floor & bar downstairs.No atmosphere upstairs unless you get window seat.Food is good but overpriced.A Boston Landmark slowly becoming Tourist destination only.

A little expensive but so is everything else in Boston. The cornbread that comes with the meal is great. My Yankee pot roast was good.
