Definitely worth a visit, even if you're only having a pint of beer. Yes the list of draft beers is impressive, and so is the list of bottled. High on the wall on the right as you enter, there's an impressive array of beer pump handles showing the beers they have. Today I sat alone at the bar and opted... More

One of the oldest restaurants in the US, still going strong with authentic German dishes, generous portions, served with style by the professional and efficient serving staff. This place is not fancy but it has a great, slightly rowdy, beer-garden atmosphere. Customers are a mix of finely-dressed sophisticates on the way to the nearby theater district and working-class stiffs soaking... More

This pub was amazing! I'd asked the concierge at my hotel for a good, local historic place to eat within walking distance and he directed me to this place, though he'd mistakenly stated it was an Irish pub. I enjoy both types of fare and rarely get a chance for German, so I was thrilled to find out it was... More

If you're looking for an easy-going meal whilst you're in Boston, then Jacob Wirth is worth a visit! Good variety of food, good atmosphere and large selection of ales and beer.

We were in Boston to see the Lion king with my 12 year old, we were looking for a place all could enjoy and find something to eat. I had been told of many high end places to try, but went with Jacob Wirth as to not waste money on my 12 year olds young taste buds. The service was... More

While visiting Boston, a local recommended to us this place for a happy hour spot, saying they had an amazing selection of beer. He wasn't kidding! I didn't know more than 6 or 7 of them (east coast beer selection is so different from west coast's anyways), but they had what must have been hundreds! The bartender was very knowledgable... More

This German restaurant/bar was suggested by the concierge at the hotel as a place that is truly Boston but I found it lackluster. My husband had the Mixed Grill which consisted of a couple of different sausages, potato salad, and red cabbage which I tasted and found flavorless. I had fish and chips, maybe not a German staple, but I... More

Discovered this on streetview when looking for somewhere near our hotel for dinner on our first night, and it proved to be a good choice. A fantyastic range of beers on offer, and - unusually - a great selection of wursts for those who like a German sausage. It's been in Boston since 1868 so they know what they are... More

We dropped in for a bite on the way to the Boston common. Pleasantly surprised with the food and service plus the history of the restaurant.
