We had a great time at Durgin Park celebrating my birthday. The food was great and the atmosphere was festive at Christmas time. Our waitress, Laura, took great care of us. She was attentive, happy, and very entertaining. Laura made our night a memorable one! Will definitely go back and would recommend it to anyone -- ask for Laura!
We waited about 20 minutes for a server to come take our drink order. Then we put in an appetizer order and told the server we wanted to wait to put in our entree order. We felt like we were being rushed through our meal so that he could make more tips. We spoke at the beginning of the order about kids meals being free but we’re charged for them when the bill came. The food was good but not as good as you would expect for the high price point.
Our waitress has worked there for over 30 years and was a delight, despite she was running her butt off! Great meal, good service, customer friendly
The turkey dinner was outstanding. Lots of mashed potatoes and stuffing and squash with delicious gravy and a Hugh portion of turkey meat.
I hadn't eaten at Durgin Park for many years, and my wife had never done so. It was quite a bit like my first experience there some 40 years ago, although the menu seems a bit more interesting than I remember from before. We had a good meal for a fair price, with a little nostalgia on the side. Better than any casual-style chain restaurant I know.
This has to have been the worst restaurant I have ever visited in the states. It says they have the best prime rib ever. One of our party had it and said it was the toughest prime rib he had ever tasted .
First time at Durgin Park - have always wanted to go there. Was not disappointed. Classic American-style seafood and comfort food very nicely done. Friendly family-style Boston atmosphere. There were 9 of us for a Sunday lunch. Service was great, good beer. We loved it. Definitely worthwhile visiting this historic Boston restaurant.
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving meal with fresh seafood ( as we are not turkey fans!). The restaurant was nice and quiet.
What a great experience! Food atmosphere and service excellent! We will be back!
Durgin-Park is a genuinely old restaurant, not a restaurant constructed to look old (It looks just like it did fifty years ago when I first went there.) The food is traditional, heavy and plentiful. I go there when I want to be reminded of old Boston and home cooking. There are some menu items that I don't usually find in other restaurants, like fish cakes, Yankee pot roast, baked beans, corn bread and Indian pudding. Their clam chowder is excellent, so is their strawberry shortcake. The Durgin cut prime rib (32 oz.) is served on the bone. It will make you feel like Fred Flintstone.
It was the first Thanksgiving we've ever eaten out, and we had a large group. All but one got the turkey dinner, and the portions were bountiful! I also had butternut squash soup and it was delicious. Our server was wonderful, but it was a bit slow due to the business of the hour we ate. Understandable.
Durgin Park was great. I would go again. I would not, however, park in the garage connected to Faneuil Hall. We were there for less than two hours and had to pay $38 for parking! The waitress at Durgin was great and the food was wonderful.
We had the lamb shank ,prime rib and indian pudding for dessert. Everything was excellent. Great prices for a home cooked meal. Have always gone to Durgin Park and it is never a disappointment. Will return soon!
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.
Excellent home cooking type comfort food - perfect prime rib served in red checked tablecloths overlooking Faneuil Hall pedestrian walkway. Great beer selection. Perfect service.
A continual favorite when traveling to Boston. The Lobster Roll and the fried clams are terrific!
We had a fabulous meal. Prime rib was great. Super tender, cooked perfectly and very juicy. Cocktails were yummy as well and loved the corn bread when we sat down.
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.
Visited while in Boston for the day. Great food and lots of things to do in the surrounding area. I would visit again.
Delicious food at a great value just like I remember from years ago although with friendly service. Will definitely return.
