Good Yankee cooking

On a cold snowy day, wanted to see how Durgin Park fared through the years. Corn bread is warm, sweet but good. Enjoyed a starter of tender fried oysters with tartar and cocktail sauce.

The food was very disappointing! I ordered pan seared sea scallops (4) $$ in curry sauce that was unpalatable. Two of the group ordered the lobster roll which was over salted and served in a ☃cold toasted roll. The service was was quite good. The very pleasant waiter promptly took my meal away and offered to get me something else... More

Well the night before my sons wedding took some family members out to eat at Durgin Park, I don't if it was because it was later in the night or we didn't order alcohol ( we've noticed service issues around this before in other places) or our server & the cooks were having a bad day. 1 meal was prime...

A poor experience for dinner. We were very hungry and had visited here many times. Always satisfied with service and cuisine. However on this occasion both the service and meals were very poor. They seem very under staffed and unable to cope with the amount of people dining.

A local recommended this restaurant for Boston home cooking. The food was amazing. The portions were large. But not large enough to skip dessert! I had my first true Boston cream pie here and it was so much better than one you'd get anywhere else in the nation. The fish platter I had was great, the potato and cheese side... More

The comfort food here is amazing and the wait staff have a great personality. Big portion sizes and not one complaint from our party of 8 (which is saying a lot when 4 of them are picky kids).

A Boston landmark since 1827 we decided we have to check it out. We had a party of 8 including 5 children so we had a large table upstairs. The staff was friendly and the food was average. If you like baked beans then you must try theirs. They are known for their beans and they were really good. The... More

My husband enjoys classic, comfort food at times so booked a family dinner on a Saturday night here. It is a good place for kids since it is very noisy and busy, no one will notice if your kids are not "being good". The restaurant has been open for over 100 years and the atmosphere portrays that well. Our waitress... More

If you want a great steak in a restaurant with a good atmosphere this is the place for you. It's pricey but it's a must. I have been twice once in 2014 and again Dec 2015 I loved it both times. The corn bread is yum too! The wait staff are great fun full of character and Boston charm! I'll... More

I grew up in Boston, but moved away long ago. However, whenever we come back to visit family, Durgin Park is one of the places we must visit. The food is traditional New England food, heavy on the seafood. The Boston baked beans are a standard as well. I usually get the Fried Ipswich clams which are as good as... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
