Good solid foodWhile visiting Boston, went to Durgin Park because of a visit at least 50 years ago. Same building and wonderful servers. It was a very slow evening. The food was very good, not too much fancy stuff but just good food. Very reasonable prices.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Prime Rib - WOWWe arrived in Boston for a 4 generation baseball trip, heard about Durgin-Park and gave it a try. The food was great and the servings were generous. We were seated quickly and the waiting staff was helpful and prompt. We had a great meal and would come back again if in Boston.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMHistoric AmbianceWhen I say "historic", I don't mean the Revolutionary War historic, but the tradition of serving comfort food, in the old warehouse building, without alot of ceremony or fussiness from the waitstaff. They ask what you want, answer your questions (often with lots of personality that is often mistaken for rudeness), bring your food, and do all that is required and expected from the service side. The kitchen always does a great job at preparing the best: Clam chowder, best strawberry shortcake, the best shepard's pie, the best fish sandwiches and everything else.
We alwasy make at least one stop at Durgin Park when we are in town.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent serviceMade reservations for 6:30 on a Friday night, arrived just after 6:00 and we were seated right away. Waiter was outstanding, very personable and attentive. We were expecting the less-than-friendly persona of days gone by. None of that today. Food was very good, reasonably priced for dinner at a classic Boston original.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMStill the bestDurgin Park is, well, Durgin Park. I ate here before I lived in Boston, when I lived in Biston and after I left Boston. The prime rib is probably the best in the world and still a deal whichever cut you choose. Even though it's on every tourist list of where to eat in Boston, no matter. It's still the place for plain New England cooking at its best.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful service, super-friendlyWonderful service, super-friendly waitstaff, delicious food, a nice introduction to Boston and its "Yankee cuisine."3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMA unique experience.

Thank You!!3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMBoston icon at Faneuil HallHadn't been to Durgin Park for many years but remembered it as a fun place. We were four adults and four children and they easily accommodated us. We had a 5:30 reservation on Saturday night to avoid the crowd. We were surprised when we left at 7:30 that the restaurant wasn't full. Our waiter was great especially with the kids. He wasn't as sassy as the waitresses are known for but he was fun and efficient. We all had a great dinner. My son-in-law had the Durgin Park cut prime rib which was huge and managed to finish it. We ordered three beers, three appetizers, dinners, and all had dessert. Bill was $330 including tip. Would definitely recommend Durgin Park for a good meal.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service and amazing food!My family loved Durgin Park!I was a little skeptical because Quincy market is so touristy. The staff was so friendly and accommodating. I had the scrod and it was so good. My 8 year old had the fish and chips. She won't eat fish anyplace else now. My husband had the yankee pot roast. It was amazing. I sampled everyones food. I will definitely be back for more. When we were leaving our waitress packed us up a container of corn bread for the road. She was the sweetest woman.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMHistoric old place deliversHistoric old place delivers outstanding pot roast and coffee jelly.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMDurgin Park has to be oneDurgin Park has to be one of the best places in Boston to visit and eat
