Great food,large portions

Ate here this past Sunday for first time in years. This building is over 125 years old and has many original pieces left from when it first opened. We had the German mixed grill which consisted of a bratwurst, knockwurst, German potato salad, saurkraut and red cabbage. The beer menu is very varied... read more

I revisited Jacob Wirth recently after a hiatus of about 25 years. It hasn't changed much and still offers a great selection of beers and a small number of genuine German dishes such as Bratwurst and Wiener Schnitzel. The food was fresh and the servers attentive. Tables are too close together and the place is very noisy. I wouldn't travel... More

Good German food, fun atmosphere and great German beer. Located in the theater district of Boston. Should make reservations otherwise be prepared to wait.

Our first visit. Have walked by numerous times and finally made it in. The building looks like it may fall down anytime, the interior is old, dated and because of that very charming. The menu is full of German dishes with just enough other items to keep everyone happy. Our server was attentive without being in the way (he was... More

we came here with a group of 12 and the place was pretty slow, the beers are great and the food was really done well also, as I noticed a lot of clean plates. Our server has very slow and seemed to want to spend more time talking to his co workers then taking care of us, I don't know... More

Knockworst, Bratwurst, sauerkraut, red cabbage, german potatoe salad. Sliders, schnitzel and pretzels. Had the nibbler combo with knockwurst and bratwurst with mashed potatoes, sauerkraut and pickled red cabbage. Excellent. A few beers and pretzels... More

We had a nice family meal on New Years Eve. The staff was very attentive and right there when you needed them. The food is a step above usual Pub fare. They did run out of the House Signature beer that night (at 6 PM--bad planning on their part) but they do have an excellent House dark selection as well.... More
