I felt like we were back in Berlin! The bar is very German in appearance and even the draught beer set-up is Euro inspired. I was really excited to see the draught beer list which, though not exclusively German, did have many true German options. They even had a wonderful, sweetish dunkle which delighted all of us. The menu is... More

I've been here at least 10 times in the past 5 years. Probably more then that. It's a classic German restaurant dating back to 1868, and it's a great place for people who love beer or traditional German food. Recently I took two my friends here and they were amazed by the beer selection. They have just about every British,... More

Largely unchanged since opening in 1868, Jacob Wirth has an amazing atmosphere, beer - 40+ selections -, and respectable German food selection. Ate @ the bar with super service, award winning Victory Dirt Wolf IPA, Beer Advocate 95+! and Wiener Schnitzel, tender, flavorful, juicy. Unhurried, amazing atmosphere. Could have served more veggies as they were excellent summer selection. Check out... More

I came here with my 19 year old son, who goes to college in the area. We loved our meal and the atmosphere. The prices were reasonable, and the portions generous. We will definitely go back!

This place has a large menu which consists of German dishes such as Snitzels and Wursts as well as regular meals like burgers and and wings. Plenty of big screens around the walls, coupled with pitchers of beer, which make it a great location for sporting events. There is a fantastic sing along on Friday nights with a live pianist....

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!
