Stopped in with a co-worker while on a business trip. We only had a few hours and had already eaten some lobster rolls elsewhere. Happened to walk by and I had heard of this place. We sat at the bar and had a couple beers. Chatted with some friendly locals and the bar staff was very friendly too. I would... More

I've been going to Durgin Park since graduate school (1977) and visit the restaurant when I back in Boston, which is usually every few months. I have not been there over the last twelve months and a recent visit eliminated this restaurant from my recommended list. I have had business associates from all over the world meet me at Durgin...

This was recommended as the place to go for real Boston food. The atmosphere was great - plenty of noise from happy eaters! We tried the chowder, Boston beans, corn beef and cabbage and the Indian Pudding - I would recommend it all!

Our recent visit was just as great as the former one in 2011! The fried haddock was fresh and accompanied by crispy, homemade slaw, piping hot fries, and homemade cornbread. Friendly service abounds at Durgin Park and the relaxed atmosphere is welcoming. A sure bet in an area with a lot of dining choices!

Went for lunch on a holiday, not very busy. Six of us, ordered everything from lobster rolls, fish and chips, salmon wraps, salads... fish and chips were barely room temperature on arrival, salmon wrap was cold and very dry, chowder was good, salad good, penne pesto was cold and bland... overall not very impressed.

I remember when Durgin Park was about the only establishment in the now tourist-laden Faneuil Market. I had not been there for many years when, during a conference in Boston, my husband and I decided to re-live our first date...at Durgin Park. We were shocked to find we were the only ones in the dining room on a Thursday before... More

We were lucky that the pub had some seating at 2pm on a Saturday and, of course, the dining room was totally booked. The menu is the same whether you are seated in the pub or the dining room. We had never been here before despite the fact that we are from New England so it was a treat to... More

For the fifty years we went there, it was great. It changed owners a few years ago and all that's left are the facility shell, wall hanging memories of the past, and the furnishings. We went for an early (4:30-ish) dinner. The place was mostly empty. The prices seemed higher, but what isn't? I guess they were fair. Service began... More

Ate here the weekend before Christmas and the place was bustling. Glad I made a reservation in advance. First time visiting and was pleasantly surprised after the first impression walking in. If you're looking for a fancy, trendy place, this one is not for you. It's old school, classic fare, with quite an established history. More charm than trend. Menu... More
