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.

"I have been there before and never had trouble. However, this time my friend ordered her prime rib- medium well it came out medium rare! So she sent it back and it came back out charred and tough- I could smell the char from across the table! Ordered a sirloin came out properly- got a 25$ gift certificate but really our meal should have been comped! Server was great and obliviously flustered felt bad for him not his fault about the kitchen."

"Pricey but worth it! I had the kona steak, omg heaven! I am not ashamed that I took the bone home so I could get more meat off in the privacy of my own home!"
