Totally average. Conveniently located at the Quincy Market, but we wish we went elsewhere. With so many restaurants to choose from, read the reviews. This was a rare occasion where I didn't read up.

Durgin Park is one of the oldest restaurants in Boston (and certainly in Fanueil Hall/Quincy Market's North Market building). The bar is on the street level, with the restaurant upstairs. It offers quirky old-school style and an Old New England menu, including lots of seafood and hearty meat dishes. Classics include Boston baked beans, clam chowdah, Yankee pot roast and... More

Having many great restaurant meals on our repertoire, this one was just average. We expected more from a Boston icon that felt like a place coasting on its history. Service was good enough, but the food was just OK and not a great value given the price.

I first went to Durgin-Park in the late 1970s and have been back several times over the years with business groups, friends and my wife. I had never been disappointed here and can't imagine visiting Boston without a meal here. If you want a nice quiet place that's fancy and posh, don't bother. This is family style and very old...

I don't know if it was just our server but it was a odd experience. No drinks, no variety of breads.

We had lunch there and their clam chowder was very good. The scrod was fresh but a bit on the bland side for us. The service was good by Carlos and everything was fresh.

A local spot amid the touristy Faneuil Hall area. Duck in to find a family restaurant with local tastes. Excellent chowder and I enjoyed the Sam Adams red ale. The Boston Cream Pie is big enough for two people. Good staff and prices.

We went to Durgin Park for dinner on a Saturday night. The service was quite acceptable. Sadly, the food was only fair to good. The fish chowder was way too bland. The bacon wrapped scallops (a) were way too small, (b) contained, at best, "a hint" of bacon, and (c) tasted terrible. The prime rib, for which we were told... 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.
