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.

The days of Durgin-Park are long gone. The long wait on the front stairs, locals would go to the back bar and sneak up the back way. The rough waitresses who would tell you where you could or couldn't sit. The open kitchen where everything could be seen cooking. Now it is just a tourist trap. Does anyone remember this place way back when? It was great back then and such a fun spot to go and eat.

I would give the food 2 stars (Burger KIng fries) and other hit and miss food. The rest of my large group seemed to enjoy their food though, mine was passable overall. I did get groped by an old waitress though... since I enjoy a good groping I give it 3 stars.

I went to the hideout this weekend after seeing a band I have seen and liked before was playing a gig. This lower level bar is a welcome relief from all the tourists traps nearby. It is definitely more a dive bar, with a hometown feel. Good deals on beers and they offer free popcorn. We opted to leave to go to some more lively spots but I would go back here for a casual night out.

A "Must" dining experience when you're in Boston. It's been around forever, because it's dependable, every time. Generous helpings of American food, especially seafood and also meat dishes. You better be really hungry if you order the large Prime Rib. In the distant past the waitresses were noted for being 'surly' (it was an act). Thankfully, that schtick has passed and now the staff is friendly and personable. If you're there for lunch ask for Laura. Among a group of truly first class waiters and waitresses, she's the best.

I don't normally go out of my way to review a mediocre restaurant but this one has to be said. I've lived in Boston for 7 years and found myself eating in this tourist trap one day with out of town guests. We received our food, ate a few fries, and noticed the sandwiches weren't right. Just to make sure, my boyfriend and I opened them up and looked inside. Nope, not the right sandwich. We sent them back. I then watched the waitress take our plates, walk over to her computer to check the order, and then IMMEDIATELY deliver them to a poor unsuspecting old couple across the room. She gave them our returned food! We had touched it! I ate fries off that plate and manhandled all the sandwich parts. I almost went over and told them but I didn't want to cause a scene. Never again will I return.

Absolutely terrible service and mediocre food. Ultra aggressive wait staff, and poor management results in a very poor customer experience. I will never return.

Seen Fanuel Hall? Paul Revere's house? Freedom Trail? Now, where to eat? Durgin Park! Scarf down a bit of history. Once ships hauled molasses from the Carribean to Beantown. Colonials made rum, sent to England, and factory goods came back. Molasses, the black gold of the Triangular Trade, still infuses Durgin Park's Boston Baked Beans and Indian Pudding. Expect to be given cornbread as a reminder the Wompanoags gave us corn. And for a slice of really ancient history, order the Flintstone-sized prime rib.
