We arrived a bit late, by chance, and ate at the downstairs bar. I learned later that the upstairs dining area is the place to be and we are sorry we missed that experience. That being said - our dinners were excellent, Prime Rib and Pot Roast, fairly priced for the location. Service was excellent. A very enjoyable meal.

We have been planning a trip to Boston for some time for our son's "Senior Trip" and have been wanting to try Durgin Park. We were not disappointed. Our waitress was TERRIFIC and we had great service. The drinks and baked beans were very good. My son loved his prime rib and my wife loved her lobster and clams, and... More

I was first introduced to this place in the very early 80's. Great for meat and seafood isn't that bad either. Interesting place and fantastic staff. Nothing too much trouble. Whenever I come Boston I try to make this place part of the itinerary.

If you are looking for simple American fare and a staff that is well mannered and funny, check out this restaurant at Faneuil Hall. The food is simple and filling, the wine list and beer list are small, but samples are good to pair with your meal. If you have questions, the staff is informed, and will offer you their... More

The chowder had no clams viable. . Tasted like Campbells soup. Over priced and very forgettable. My friend had a boring salad.

We visited Durgin Park for dinner on March 16th, after attending the St. Patrick's Day Parade. We enjoyed a great meal in a historic and casual atmosphere. There has been a restaurant in Durgin Park's building since 1742 and this particular restaurant was opened in 1826. In other words, this is technically the oldest restaurant in America. Since it was... More

Looking for a place to grab a bite before we checked into our hotel. We walked down to the Faneuil Hall and checked out a couple restaurants, none of the menus seemed appealing. We came upon Durgin Park that I heard good things about. We decided to eat in the bar area, service was fast and friendly. I had the... More

We were looking forward to our return trip, the checkered tablecloths and the historical feel of the place. A flavor of Boston. We were served promptly, though our food was not great. We both got lunch specials (thanksgiving turkey sandwich and baked fish sandwich) which were disappointing. If it hadn't been for the excellent mashed potatoes the whole lunch would... More
