4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

when we were little kids, my dad took my brother and I here on Saturdays as a treat (YES, A TREAT)....I always got the beans and franks... and, I got them again... alice got oysters on the half shell...enjoyed, although, I know the price we paid was no where near what dad paid back in the 50's :)

Old Boston Eatery that oozes history all over its halls, and located in the heart of Quincy Market. Featuring old England classic foods, including a great seafood menu as one would expect in downtown Boston. Huge portions and delicious food! Great family or large group destination, but plan ahead as it is well known and a visitor hot spot.

I had the schrod and my friend had the pot roast and they were both excellently prepared and quite tasty. Honestly, I wasn't expecting much as we were pressed for time during a tour, but they were quick and efficient with service and the food was very good.

Not only is the service prompt and friendly, the food is out of this world. Whether it's prime rib, which I had, or lobster, which my wife had, they are not fooling around. The sides are beyond peer, as are their desserts.

This is a long time restaurant, and the beans were good, super sweet, but worth the taste. The service is less than stellar though and the rest of the food was cooked to death. There are so many other choices around the area.

Been here lots of times and its always the same...GREAT !! Not fancy, but lots of good home-cooked choices and VERY reasonable prices for a tourist attraction in Boston. Definitely a top pick for family dining.

Yes, it's a little pricey, but the food was excellent. Turkey plate was more than I could eat, my wife's Shepard's pie was outstanding, and 2 (adult) kids, split a French Dip sandwich. Surprisingly not too busy given how full all the other restaurants were at lunch time.

Durgin Park is a Boston classic, including all those wholesome and belly warming New England foods, like lobster, pot roast, clams, and fish, along with sides like Boston baked beans, butternut squash, and mashed potatoes. The food is always good, and the location can't be beat, but the prices continue to rise to level of a fine dining establishment, of... More

Do try the prime rib which comes in different wrights and guys trying to impress will order the largest - the waitresses will tell them "honey, you wont finish that" and they rarely ever do! but try to save room for bread pudding or cobbler

I hadn't eaten here for many, many years so it was fun to re-visit the historic restaurant. My lunch was very good and plentiful - a Thanksgiving Turkey wrap. The wait staff were attentive and cordial. I'd recommend Durgin Park to anyone who wants to experience a bit of restaurant history while exploring the Faneuil Hall area.

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.
