After being disappointed at another place at Quincy Market, we stepped across the way to this oldie but goodie. the Yankee pot roast was perfectly cooked, and more than I could eat. It came with 2 sides-mashed potatoes and gravy, and mashed sweet potatoes. Big basket of tasty corn bread. I ordered a crock of baked beans, and even,though 4... More

My second visit in a couple of years confirmed the worst. This place is past it's prime, and a tourist trap. Run down, looks dirty, prices that allude to quality but do not deliver. And a very slow kitchen. Used to be fun sassy service with quality New England standards. Now poor food, poor value. Our food: Calamari. 50% batter,... More

As seen on TV, had to make a pilgrimage (well not really cause it is right in or near Quincy Market) solely to try to original Boston Baked Beans. Not disappointed. Very good. A little on the sweet side compared to what one might be used to, but original, classic, and historic. I highly recommend getting a crock and splitting... More

We were staying one night in Boston after a trip to cape cod and before flying out to the UK. We went to Quincy Market first and then came upon Durgin Park when we was searching for fresh classic lobster. We were not disappointed as the food was perfect. Service was great making the whole evening a delight.

Right in center of historic Boston area. Chicken pot pie is great. Can't really go wrong with anything you chose. Staff are super friendly. Very old building and historical restaurant.

The waitress was friendly and made helpful suggestions. She was also attentive throughout our meal. The food was good, but not amazing. However, it was decent value for the price.

My aim in Boston was to try Boston baked beans and lobster rolls. I turned up at Durgin Park and was seated upstairs, in a lovely old building. It looks like a real institution of a place, and the decor screams old school. First thing after taking my drink order was the waiter bringing some corn bread as an appetizer.... More

This was my grandfather's favorite restaurant when he lived in Boston in the 1920's. He especially loved the prime rib and strawberry shortcake. A great place when visiting Boston!

We called in here during our day visit to Boston. It was very hot we were told to sit were we liked and were then served ice cold water. I ordered a Sam Adams Brick Red, which was very smooth, I wish I could get it back in the UK. My wife enjoyed a Haymaker cocktail and as we weren't... More

Started out with delicious clam chowder and a huckleberry lemonade. Enjoyed both very much. Then had a lobster roll that was also tasty. My husband and daughter had the fish fry which they said was just ok. My son had chicken fingers which he liked. Sat outside and enjoyed watching all that was happening in Faneuil Hall. Waitress was very... 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.
