Walked to Durgin Park at Faneuil Hall from the Museum of Science with my grandsons (ages 3, and 5) and their parents. We arrived around 2pm on a Friday and were seated immediately upstairs in the dining area which has red and white checkered tablecloths. The waiter was friendly and knew how smart it is to get the children something... More

It's one of the oldest restaurants in the country so I decided to give it a try. The clam chowder was very good, but the lobster roll was mediocre. Service was a bit spotty. Another waiter had to flag down my server. It's probably ok as a 1 time thing, but I wouldn't make an annual pilgrimage there.

We were taken there as a group of 10 to taste the traditional food in the area. The Waiter was rude. He ignored our request for desserts. The food was cold. It was so noisy that we could not talk easily. We refused to leave a tip and the waiter ignored this and added onto our bill. We deleted it... More

Not worth your time nor money. Waiter was clueless and didn't know how food was prepared. Got our order wrong as well. It was extremely noisy in the kitchen and you can hear it all. Taste was so-so.

Today there was a 20 min. wait, gave our name, went to the Pub, ordered a drink and became friends with several people at the... More

With so many restaurants to choose from around the Market area, we finally decided we needed some American dining. My wife ate the pot roast whilst I enjoyed the scallops as we sat outside. Nice and quiet to watch the people go by. Lizzy, the waitress, did the minimum required - "How are things for you? - but when the... More

Growing up, a trip to Boston wasn't complete without a stop at Durgan Park. It was always the highlight of my trips. Yes, they seat you with other people, yes it's loud and often packed. My in-laws hate it because they think the wait staff is rude. I really don't know where they get that from. Let's put it this... More

Nice location in the outdoor area watching the world go by. The service was friendly and efficient. I wanted baked beans and this was substituted for the usual side. My companion had the seared scallops which were good and served with excellent spinach and mashed potato.

Thank sarah s

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
