About Durgin Park
For well over a century, Durgin-Park has catered to the hearty appetites of straw-hatted, white-aproned market men and local characters. Today it hosts visiting celebrities, business men and women, students, and tourists from every part of the globe. While the origin of Durgin-Park goes back to Revolutionary days, the era of fame for its chowders, Indian puddings, apple pan dowdy, johnny cake, and New England boiled dinners started some 130 years ago when John Durgin, in partnership with Eldridge Park, a livery man, and John G. Chandler, a dry goods merchant, took over. The theme followed to this day was decided upon then by these old Yankees, that the best advertising is plenty of food on the table.

Durgin Park Ratings and Reviews
Been going here since ... forever. Most recent visit very disappointing. Same friendly service, same “old” restaurant feel - but food has definitely deteriorated. “Fresh” seafood not so fresh anymore, salads a bit tired, steaks came off an assembly line. Maybe it was inevitable, being in the midst of Boston’s tourist hot spot, but more and more feels like just another tourist attraction, one among many many others in the Faneuil Hall vicinity.
Wasn't quite sure about the place but there was a deal for $30 restaurant gift certificate and 2 tickets to the comedy club below (call the Hideout) for $20. The Hideout cost $5/person so it was like getting $40 dollars worth of stuff for $20. The tables at Durgin are long wooden and covered by red/white picnic type table covers. The staff is very sweet and attentive but not the best in helping you make food choices if you are indecisive. They give you corn bread automatically but it was very dry! For appetizer, I went with the crab cake and initially was concerned that the bottom was burnt but it was excellent burst of flavors and crab meat when combined with the slaw beneath it. I was not a fan of the clam chowder, felt a bit watered down, by my date loved how creamy it was. For entrees, I ate the seafood pasta and my data had the prime rib with butternut squash and mashed potatoes as the side. I do wish the squash was not pureed (felt like baby food) but it had good flavors. The seafood pasta was made in a sauce that was so creamy and did not feel like you were eating butter, which can happen in white pasta sauces sometimes. The prime rib was quite large so glad we did not get the 32 oz and definitely cooked to perfection. No dessert for us but the server recommended "Wick’d Good Martini Malibu Coconut Rum, Hpnotiq Liqueur, Pineapple Juice" and it was good. Walked around the neighborhood after dinner then went to the comedy show which had its good and bad moments. All in all, would go again.
My husband is the fifth generation to have dinner at Durgin Park. The atmosphe is very casual with long communal tables and red checkered table clothes. The food was really tasty. I had the Yankee Pot Roast and my husband had the BBQ Short Ribs. Both dishes were very good. There are several more items on the menu that I would like to try in the future. Our server was friendly and very efficient in getting our meal to us quickly. Its not a fancy place and it would be great for families. We will definitely be back on our next visit to Boston. Hopefully our daughter and son will visit in the future and be the sixth generation to dine at Durgin Park!
We had a reservation for upstairs of Durgin Park, but got side tracked to their basement bar - THE HIDEOUT. Great detour; food was very good - same menu as upstairs- but was able to listen to a great group called Copilot - Ry and Maggie were incredible - what a find! I'd recommend the HIDEOUT to anyone who wants a different experience and is not looking for the usual (but good) restaurant experience of Durgin Park upstairs. Probably caters to a younger crowd, but as middle-agers, we had no problem blending in and enjoying. Lily the bartender and our server was very nice.
We each had the Boston Cut Prime Rib, the house specialty. I had the house made baked beans and the butternut squash as sides and my girlfriend had the butternut squash and a baked potato as sides. I had the Boston Cream Pie for desert. Everything was great! Kim, our server, was professional, helpful and efficient. She did everything right. The Ambiance is that of a traditional steakhouse and seafood restaurant. Next time in Boston I will definately return.
Huge disappointment. Always visited Durgin while in Boston and looked forward to the experience. Now..absolutely not. From the outset...room is shabby....waiter is uniformed...corn bread was thin, dry and bland....chicked liver appetizer was badly overcooked to the point of being tough and almost burned.....vegetables with entree were cold and without flavour...prime rib was tasty but terribly overpriced. Would not recommend this restaurant to anyone and will never return. Too bad.
A childhood memory of prime rib at Durgin Park had me bring my wife on a short excursion to Boston. It was a bit disappointing. Dining room was quite cold, heavy work outside the back window noisy, and prime rib not available for lunch (saw that nowhere on the website). Service was ok but a bit slow despite the near empty dining room. The food we ordered - mediocre. Boston Beans were disappointingly bland. Cold beer was good, though they were out of their Durgin Park Ale. All in all a disappointing experience...!
The food quality was ok, but overpriced. You are paying for their location and history and not for the food quality nor originality. The ambiance was fine, but the legendary Durgin Park attitude was missing. You would be better suited to dine elsewhere...or at least, lower your expecations.
With 12 people to organize, I was apprehensive about finding a place in Boston on a Friday night. I hit the jackpot with Durgin Park. Traditional Boston menu and used to handling large groups. Mary, our waitress, was wise, witty, and attentive. She even worked out for separate checks and made sure one diner with a serious seafood allergy was able to order without worry. We Kentuckian could not have enjoyed our Boston experience more.
I was delighted to have old friend Jennie, as our server! I had done illustrations for DP, years ago, my prints are hanging in the dining room to the left. To be greeted so warmly, meant the world to me.
I met up with visiting friends from the IK and NZ! It was the perfect venue to show of our Yankee food.
Waitress was awesome. Food was mediocre. Crab cakes were hard to find any crab within. Oysters on the half shell were fantastic. Clam chowder and oyster stew were great. I stopped at a different restaurant and picked up a meal to go. Wicked martini was great. Can't really recommend this restaurant just because it is the second oldest restaurant in Boston, there are SO many other ones that are worth a visit!
I took a friend here at her request for her 82nd birthday. Festive atmosphere, terrific food, but the waitstaff nearly spoiled the evening. It wasn't their famous "sassy" factor that disappointed, it was their lack of assistance/information when ordering, lack of availability throughout the meal and unresponsiveness to requests.
I was recommended by a friend whose father came here before ww2 and brought his family regularly. They were a Boston family. I had the cam chowder and shod, two older classics. All very good quality and perfect portion. The hostess heard the story and gave me a menu and other information. I enjoyed the experience very much.
We first dined at durgin park in1966.we have been back many times in 1966 and 1967 and The 1970s and once or twice in the 2000s. The dinner on sept 24th of2017 was horrible,from Luke warm prime rib to poor service. Unless you remember your glorious past the durgin park of old will self destruct. The latter comes from patrons who use to love your restaurant and who are sorry to see it in its present condition.
It's a historical restaurant, large servings but nothing spectacular. One eats there bkz It's been in Boston forever. High prices, average service (not bad, just average). Hostess Gina is the best part of the place. It's very casual and located in Faneuil Hall area.
My first experience dining at Durgin Park was over 45 years ago. Lots has changed in the area but Durgin Park is still recognizable. Went with the very first meal I ever had there, clam chowder, grilled pork chops, and Indian pudding. Everything was delicious and did not disappoint. My husband had the scrod which was great as well. The clam chowder was fantastic and definitely one of the best we had during our weeklong stay in Boston. And of course the Indian Pudding can't be beat. I have a 50-year-old copy of the recipe that they use and mine never turns out as well as their's. But as my husband pointed out, they have been making it for 100 years longer than I have. The photo below is a little misleading as to what the Indian Pudding looks like because my husband had already eaten one of the ice cream scoops on the top before I could even get my camera out. It was fabulous and fantastic way to end a meal.
It was an OK experience. The service was not great, even though the restaurant was slow, only a few tables were occupied. We waited for an appetizer that never came, and had to send a plate back because it was not cooked right. The server never apologized for the inconvenience.
