It seems my family has a penchant for vacation travel during the World Cup. This go around finds us seeking out the best place in Boston for a pint & a view of the televised pitch. We settled on Jacob Wirth as we'd strolled by it several times over the last couple of days. It's close to our lodging, as... More

Went to dinner last night at the Jacob Wirth Restaurant with family before the seeing Al Pacino @the Wang. We had all eaten there before and were looking forward to some good, German food. We were sadly disappointed. Three of us had a wurst sandwich with sauerkraut and pretzel roll which consisted of the worlds smallest sausage(tasteless) cut lengthwise, a... More

We went specifically for the wiener schnitzel and German sausages. It was very good, we were not disappointed!

Great food and generous portions. The atmosphere is really fun I enjoyed the trivia. It can get very busy though. I will go back!

We were there with a group and had reserved the back room for the gathering. Appetizers were ordered in advance and were ready when we arrived. We had a few assigned waitresses to handle our group for drinks and dinner orders, they were efficient and food and drink arrived in a timely fashion. I enjoyed the German potato salad, Cobb... More

One of the oldest restaurants in Boston-definitely worth stopping by. Fun atmosphere...great food, service and location. Large portions and great variety if authentic German food and beers. We will go back the next time we are in Boston.

We were there Friday, May 9th. Meet up with friends. Not far from South Station or Residence Inn on Congress St. Great fun place to meet friends. German hamburger and onion rings were great. German beer top notch. Gotta have there on tap German beer or a Sam Adams Boston Lager. I had the raspberry salad. Yum. There was a... More

We really enjoyed the atmosphere. We went to this place on Xmas eve and it was somewhat empty. They were bar games being played by the local college kids, but they kept it clean for the few families there. If you are there in the winter, do the chili, it's very good. Fun atmosphere and a great time.

Don't go crazy to get in here, but if you want a good bratwurst or wiener schnitzel, this is the place to find it in Boston. The food is good all around -- brats, schnitzels, chicken were all yummy. Mashed potatoes and sweet potato fries were fine. Stick to the German/Irish classics here. Warn corn bread was excellent. The beer... More
