I have eaten here for over 40 years. Yes it is loud and not intimate but it is fun. The waitress made fun of some of the customers making us laugh. It is all part of the show you get when you come here. The food has always been good. Don't forget to order Indian pudding for dessert. If you... More

We visited Durgin Park Restaurant October 10th. We had a wonderful lunch. The lunch consisted of Clam Chowder (really great), Corn Beef and a Knockwurst sandwich sides included Garlic Fries and fried Sea Scallops. Washed this all down with Blue Moon and Guinness. The dessert was a Strawberry Short cake which was a disappointing. Hard strawberries, too much whip cream... More

This is a tourist trap in the Fanniuell District. Food is mediocre, service lack luster and very noisy. If you are looking for pub fare take a trip away from the shopping area to one of the other local pubs.

I had heard so much about Durgin Park and it seemed the only restaurant not having a long wait on a busy holiday, but I was very disappointed. I ordered broiled soil and it was basically a white piece of fish with no taste or garnish. The rice accompanying it was not even cooked. My companion had a Thanksgiving dinner... More

Took our grandsons to this place which had been a regular got me when on business in Boston. Waitress "Christiana" made it all the more pleasant. Kids dove into the good. Prices are up and mid size prime rib seems to have shrunk s tad. Remains as unique as it is old.

This was just what we wanted - a relaxed supper after a days' sightseeing: Speedy + pleasant service with a buzzy atmosphere - sat downstairs in a booth near the bar. Basic menu/food but fresh food and tasty too! Cold beer on tap. Reasonable price. Central location. Spot on!

One of Boston's most iconic restaurants. We had family visiting from Washington state, and had to take them here. A big shout out to GINA for making our visit memorable...from the time she introduced herself...through taking and delivering our orders...and insisting on hugs before we left. Definitely worth the time to go here...and if you do, ask for Gina so... More

Went here on a Sunday for lunch around 2pm and it was super busy. It was a party of 5 and we were told we'd have to wait about 10 minutes. We wanted to sit outside and there was seating outside through the bar but we thought we had to wait for that. It wasn't very clear until the hostess... More
