My wife and I had traveled to Germany...so we have a good barometer of authentic German food. We both had the Wiener Schnitzel which was very tasty. The sides included dill Spaetzle with a lemon butter sauce and sautéed veggies. The Spaetzle was the highlight of the sides... Hands down. Washed it down with some authentic German beer by Spaten....

we are no friends of the Jacob Wirth's since they refused our 19 year old handicapped German friend to stay in the restaurant during the world champion ship. He was told by the manager to wait outside in the sun and join the cue after having us told few days before specifically when we should arrive to avoid any problem.... More

Went in here after seeing the cool front of the building with old rustic look. Walked in was not greeted but looked at by the seating hostess that was oddly situated in the center of the restaurant and nowhere near the front door. So at this time we decided to just sit at the bar which conveniently was to our... More

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....
