Stick to beer

I was kind of disappointed with this place. Its fine is you just want to get some drinks, but stay away from the food. I came with a large group after a work event, and we get some sampler plates with sausages and other stuff... it was pretty bad. We also tried buffalo wings, nachos, and mozzarella... read more

The food was not great. We have eaten a lot of German food and this was just not good. The restaurant looks the part but doesn't taste like it.

All the build up and years of wanting to eat here as an old Boston institution caused such a disappointment. First to ask for a credit card up front to make a reservation is arrogant and a security risk. Who knows how and if -in today's age- they can protect data. Secondly, the food is bland and mediocre at best.... More

Lots of history with a open style seating arrangement which was neat. The beer selection on tap was nothing special. Everyone in our party had traditional German meals which was average at best. The waitress was not on top of things and couldn't pronounce properly some of the meals we ordered. Probably would not go back.

JW has the feel of a traditional German beer hall. There's ton of beer memorabilia, banners, posters etc. Plus as you walk in you can see Europe beers/lagers on tap. Exactly what we were looking for. However when we ordered drinks we were disappointed to learn none of them were available. Just the usual Boston/US ales (Sam Adams, Bud Light,... More

The food is not that great and they had been out of ¾ of their beer menu. Cool little place, but not worth a second try. Many other great places to eat nearby, go there.

If you love beer, and old world charm, go check out Jacob Wirth. They have a super assortment of brew on tap and in bottles. Good grub (Pub grub) too. It's a fun, festive atmosphere.

We were staying close by on Tremont Street and stopped by for drinks and appetizers. There were no seats at the bar so we were told to sit at a bar table. We received service after 20 minutes when the bartender finally noticed us. I like quaint, historic spots with character but this place was also just plain dirty and... More

So we stopped in before a show at the opera house and thought it would be quick the tables around us had all finished up and were leaving. Sadly our food seem to take a bit too long our waitress ended up with a large table so when our food did come to the window she was busy. We finally... More

About forty-five years ago, I had dinner at Jacob Wirth's in Boston with a college classmate and a college professor doing graduate work at Boston College at the time. I can remember what I ordered - corn beef and cabbage. So in Boston again this July for a conference, I saw Jacob Wirth's near my hotel. I checked out the... More
