Unexpected good time

Made a stop to kill the time and they feature a trivia act: Morgan White Jr. It was a good time and the beer was good. The service was good and the food was good. The act was fun and interesting.

Imagine for a moment, a German restaurant that has been around since the 1860's that is situated in Chinatown. Jacob Wirth is worth a visit while in Boston. Much of the décor looks like it is from the turn into the 1900s which adds to its charm. The menu is varied and has several German staples which include schnitzel, sauerbraten... More

happy to have stumbled by this resturant. Busy yet great service. Good beer selection with micro brews on tap. We got the small plates and were completely satisfied. There are several TV's up on the walls to watch sports.

This restaurant describes itself as "German" but it seems more like an American place that serves brats and beer. We ordered pretzels, which were basically Superpretzels that you can buy in a grocery store. Their beer selection was good, so it may be better to drink here than to eat.

Our waitress had never heard of a "Litre of beer," which I later found they do not offer in the entire place, so I'm not sure what makes this a German restaurant. The food was pretty good, but the service was terrible, as in slow, rude, lacking of any personality whatsoever, and my wife and I definitely felt rushed out... More

Great food! We made a reservation for 5pm as it was the only time available on opentable.com. Tables were available as soon as we walked in the door. It was very conveniently located to the theaters if you're seeing a show like we were (at the Wang). The server let us try several beers before we made our decision. I... More

This is a very old restaurant so they must be doing something right but we were disappointed. The service was excellent but we were eating on a week night when place was not packed. We shared the grilled brat and weisswurst with German potato salad (which was more like mashed potatoes with flavoring - not at all like real German... More

Everything is made onsite as it has been for years! A Great Ruben Sandwich, and with homemade russian dressing on the side. Very thoughtful. Their Cole Slaw is just like my old grandmother's, including the pineapple bits! The Old Boston Atmosphere can't be beaten!

The restaurant brands itself as a "German Restaurant". It is in fact an American restaurant with a German veneer. More than half the food and drink offerings are not German. Furthermore don't expect service or quality - service took forever and the $7 beer arrived in plastic "glasses". We didn't wait to find out if the food would be served... More

This place was close to our hotel and rated highly so our group of six tried it out. The food was okay and the service was lousy! First the food: The hubby & ordered wiener schnitzel. In my experience wiener schnitzel NEVER has a sauce on it -- that is something you get with Jaeger schnitzel or the like. This... More
