I ate here on a recommendation from my father-in-law, it is apparently a must-do in Boston. We both ordered the steaks as recommended by the server. The atmosphere is quite homely and the servers are friendly enough (although I hear they have a reputation for being a little sassy!). The steak was fantastic, less flame grilled steak and more roasted... More

Used to go here a lot in the 1980's. Such a busy, raucus place then. Still kind of is that way. Food was good but not that exciting. Frank was the waiter and was very good. Stuffed shrimp was just ok and fish and chips was good.

I have eaten at Durgin-Park many times over the course of the past 50 years. It is an American icon, certainly one of the oldest continually operating restaurants in America. The rather plain interior, with its long wooden tables and checkered table clothes, has not changed much in probably a century or more. I took my family here for dinner... More

We had Lucas as our server. He was funny and very well informed when we asked him Questions about the menu. The food was good, nothing bad or horrible.

On the top of my list whenever I visit a city for the first, second or third time is to eat real local food, not fast food junk. Well, after eating at another great restaurant right down the street (Union Oyster House), I asked where Durgin Park is, due to no phone service for some crazy reason in Boston. Well,... More

Our group of 7 people were quickly seated...only to wait, a woman (hostess?) quickly dropping napkins in front of us and explaining that we were there at change of shift so we would have to wait (it was 430p). 6 settings were dropped off and a pitcher of water while we waited. 2 employees sat in the same room, one...

My wife and I were in Boston for a few days to enjoy the Christmas season. When it came time for dinner, I was craving clam chowder and since our hotel was right next to Qunicy Market, we headed to Durgin Park. We've had some very enjoyable dinners there in the past especially when our children were younger. When we... More

The Durgin Park is a laid back checker-ed table cloth place but don't let the table cloths fool you, the food is great and so is the service. Our waitress was Lizzy. Great Homemade Beans oysters, Martinis & Corn biscuits ( If you ask nicely you can get more as they are amazing) They are located in Faneuil Hall Shopping... More

Visited here in SEP with business group and had a wonderful evening - service and support to 20+ person group was great. The fresh raw seafood tower was amazing; unfortunately the main course of crab cakes was not. Perhaps the tower set too high an expectation. Jump forward to DEC when I visited just with family on cold Saturday afternoon.... More

We visited as a family (2 adults and 2 boys age 9 and 11). Service was friendly and prompt. Obvious that this is a bit of tourist trap but hey, you are in Faneuil Hall. Food was excellent - good comfort food. Lobster mac/cheese was excellent. Good kids menu and good value for money. Overall an enjoyable, relaxed evening with... 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.
