So, this is not gourmet - and intact it is a throwback to the days of old - so the food is not amazing but authentic - Good chowder, lobster roll and corn bread. Baked beans are the real deal, but may be a surprise for those who eat them out of a can...

I was looking for a place within walking distance of my hotel. The restaurant had to serve both Boston cream pie and Baked Beans and have good reviews. Durgin Park did not disappoint. Both the beans and the pie were excellent. My husband said the clam chowder was some of the best he has ever had. The service was great... More

We went during lunch on a perfect spring day. They had the doors open to the shopping side so it was fun to see all the shoppers out and about while we ate. The service wasn't great and it seemed like we were there longer than we could have been. The atmosphere was dark and I was a bit thrown... More

I was disappointed, I heard about this place a lot good. The restaurant's decor is neat, the tables are stale. Ribs which I ate tasteless. It is worth here only for an older waitress Gina, helpful and professional

Christiana was our waitress and was wonderful. She was super attentive and friendly. The prime rib was exceptional (as always). Our favorite restaurant in Boston!

I ate here 25 years ago. It is as good as I remember. The waitress is way too nice to work here. We really enjoyed it. We had the lobster roll, clam chowder and Boston Cream Pie. Other family had the surf and turf. I think the rating of 3 is too low.

Friends picked me up at the pier and suggested I try the historic restaurant. Because we had a stroller and one lady had knee issues, we had to sit downstairs in the Bar area because they don't have an elevator. It was stiffling hot inside but because we were hungry and it was lightly raining outside, we just shed enough... More

After hearing some mixed reviews from friends we headed to Durkin Park for a late lunch and walked away so stuffed we had to pass on dinner. It wasn't Thanksgiving but the Thanksgiving wrap was fantastic. The staff was helpful with the menu; the free cornbread was delicious; and my ice tea glass was always kept full. There are plenty...

It used to be that the wait staff (all women) were surly and that was part of Durgin Park's charm. And while it was always fun, the quality of the food was not a particular high point of a visit, unless one ordered scrod. Now however, the food has improved noticeably, although hardly gourmet fare, but the most striking change... More

The strawberry shortcake and clam chowda are out of this world!!! Tucked in the Faneuil marketplace area, worth the stop!

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.
