I remembered Durgin Park from my youth and returned thirty years later with my wife to see how it had changed. The service was better--Kim was fantastic. The food was the same--well-sourced, correctly-cooked top quality New England seafood, no frills, no fancy touches. I'd expected it to have degraded into a tourist trap--I was pleasantly surprised at the excellence of our visit.

I took guests there last night, and the place was almost empty. I used to go there years ago when I worked in Government Center, and it was good. Now it's a shame that the quality of the food has deteriorated. One look at the manager and the kitchen reveals the cause. Back then on view were huge spits of rib roasts being cooked. Since the rib roast was $50, no one ordered it. Years ago I used to get a big slab for under $20. A glass of draft beer was $7. The former big bucket of corn bread was reduced to just one very small piece per person. The water in the pitcher tasted bad. I got the turkey dinner which was OK but cold. The medium-rare hamburger was well done, but the bacon was undercooked and slimy. The baby back ribs were the same as one can buy in a market except they were drowning in a chemical-tasting sauce, The worst meal was the shepherd's pie. There was no crust top or bottom and it was in a dish only an inch deep. The baked beans were so overcooked that they had turned to mush. The strawberry shortcake consisted of one strawberry. Avoid this place completely.

I don't understand why this place received bad reviews. We were not disappointed with our food; we ordered clam chowder and calamari. The service was GREAT! Very friendly employees, we even tipped the host and bus boy on our way out because they made our experience so positive. Try to eat outside if you can for the best atmosphere.

I've been to Durgin-Park in Boston a number of times over the years and it's remained consistently excellent. The food is good, traditional old Yankee and the prices, particularly for Boston, are almost cheap. It's located in the Faneuil Hall area which has become a bit of a tourist trap. However that's not their fault since they preceded the "Marketplace" by more than a century. ONE THING, eat on the 2nd floor; it retains the original flavor like everyone eating at benches, wood floors, etc. The first floor is pure tourist.

Its a Great place, a taste of History. Great portions, Great price. Not for the weak minded, the watress tells you to order dessert you order it, or you wear it. For real Bostonians, anyone who gives this place a 1 star should take off the diaper or stay at home.

Durgin-Park seems to have become a museum-piece, that serves food. Sat. 4/11/15 B'd party of 15. Clam chowder(white sauce w/ 2pcs clam) flavorless. Broiled Scrod seemed precooked , dry at the edges, on a bed of reddish-sauce, whose only flavor was sweet. Corned beef sandwich served on a hamburg roll. The cornbread still excellent, as was the Indian pudding. The waitstaff is classic saucy, and fun. And, the prices are certainly contemporary. Gathered from Kentuckey, Maryland, Vermont, & Massechuetts; great party, disappointing location. C.D.Adams, Scottsville, KY First visit to D-P 1952.

Great beer, service and lobster salad is amazing. That's it, I travel a lot and this place it top shelf. Got an outdoor table immediately at 9pm on Saturday night. Hardly a wait for the good. This place is great tonight. Nice, very nice atmosphere.

Fantastic! Great Bostonian atmosphere, amusing and good service and some of the best seafood in Boston. Been going there for over 10 years. Love it.
