Always fun to return to this unique restaurant, one of the oldest in Boston. It serves traditional New England Food such as prime rib, Turkey dinners, and corned beef. They also offer salads, soups, and sandwiches and desserts. Diners sometimes sit at long communal tables but there are also smaller tables. A rewarding and enjoyable trip back in time. Our... More

Historic site, menu, and surroundings. As it was later on a week night I was the only customer on the one side. It was charming and comforting. Staff very attentive and friendly. Portions are good sized. Clam chowder was very good. Corn bread was fresh. Also tried the Indian pudding. A coworker insisted the pudding here was the best. Never... More

Very hot- poor ventilation/air. Food was subpar. Service was better than the food. Wouldn't visit again.

Historic Boston establishment over the years. Seating is at long tables a or a few smaller tables. Good seafood, especially the Schroeder broiled. Highlight of the evening was our server, Christiana, who was knowledgeable and funny. Good service was appreciated.

Took the girls for a taste of history! You've never been to Boston until you've been here. We had lobster and salad. Great garlic fries and super scallops wrapped with bacon. Best New England clam chowder and finished the meal with coffee and, of course, Boston Cream pie! Now they can officially say "we've been to Boston!"

After indulging in The Chocolate Bar earlier in the day, and walking around the market we were looking for someplace that wasn't really crowded where we could relax and enjoy a decent meal. We passed Durgin Park, so we went back and decided to eat there. The clam chowder tasted good, it was really close to what mine taste like.... More

We had a layover in Boston and decided at 9 pm to go for a seafood dinner at a moderately priced restaurant. We wanted something authentic Boston and not a chain. We stumbled upon this place, and even though it was near closing time when we arrived, they were so gracious. The waitress treated us as we were the most... More

Visited this Boston classic by recommendation of a good friend. While visiting during a professional conference we had a great meal. Stuck to a classic Yankee Pot Roast and was not disappointed. Waitress had 39 years of experience and was able to describe the history of the restaurant. Be prepared to get a workout lifting up the water pitchers.

Came here on recommendation and I tried not to pay attention to reviews that said this place has gone downhill. I had never been so didn't know what to expect. Servers were not very friendly (except Gina....who was funny!). Table of 7...food all came out at different times. Lots of our sides forgotten. People were finished their meal and I... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
