Meh, but no 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

Chowder was recommended by a tour operator. It was pretty good. The bratwurst was also good. If in this area of Chinatown again, I'd stop here.

My wife lived in southern Germany back in the day, so she knows from German sausage, as we would say in NYC. And she loves the sausage, sauerkraut and red cabbage (and mashed potatoes) from Jacob Wirth, as do I. Whenever we are in Boston, we make a point to stop in for a hearty satisfying German meal at Jacob... More

Upon arrival, looking for a pub for lunch, our concierge recommended Jacob Wirth. Over the weekend, being near our hotel, we liked it so much we dined here twice. We found it to be a non-touristy, unpretentious, great "old school" pub with a nod to German cuisine. The food was very good. The service was great and very friendly. The... More

We had dinner there ýesterday and will never ever go back, the food was disgusting, fat, greasy and the meat was uncooked and from a very old animal. The wine was OK, the Music high - good when you do not have anything to say to your friends. It is probably a Place to drink not eat.
