Grand Old Beer Joint-Big On Variety

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.

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.

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

It's not fancy but there German food is great. Their sauerbraten with spatzle and red cabbage is a meal for two. Loved it and I make it often at home and know good sauerbraten. They have America food too but their German cuisine is what they are known for. Service was great and friendly. I've been there many times over... More

It was a cute pub stop, but the food wasn't great. Our waiter wasn't well acquainted with what was on tap...odd for working in a pub, and the food was really bland.

This German restaurant has been here a long time and it's an institution. You can get American style food or German. I suggest going at dinner time to get bigger portions because the food is good.

We went to Jacob Wirth restaurant 2x! They have fabulous traditional red cabbage, warm German potato salad & mashed potatoes! Also loved the potato pancakes, wurst's, clam chowder & strudel! Highly recommend for a taste of traditional German food & families!

My family and I visited Jacob Wirth last weekend before attending a show at the theater down the street. I wasn't impressed with any part of this experience. First, the day we were trying to make a reservation, their phones and OpenTable account were down so we couldn't get through. I found a contact email on their site and reached... More
