The meatloaf that will change you mind about meatloaf... Coffee rubbed & bacon wrapped thick slide of awesomeness. Must also have their chowder! The best in Boston and the world. Full of a flavor.

Went to a Sunday matinee at the Opera House, and wanted to get a light bite. Everyone got sandwiches, and they were tasty. Of course the beer is great. Large screen tvs throughout for great sports viewing. The decor is shabby but give it a chance - good and drinks are good and reasonable.

Typical German Keller with massive choice of beer. Food is great. Typically German fare and with a Piano player playing Abba to accompany your meal. Gotta be experienced.

I knew we were in trouble when I walked in and saw people eating chicken wings, burgers, and big salads. I knew we were in more trouble when they brought corn bread to the table (and it wasn't anything special). The menu is somewhat German - several kinds of schnitzels and some wurst. But there are also lots of burgers,... More

This is an historic restaurant. Great beers and food, especially the German dishes, but all items are excellent. Convenient to theaters or just a great pub atmosphere to hang out.

Had not been to Jake Wirth's in a few years, so we decided to have dinner there after an afternoon in Boston. Sorry to say, it was just okay, and certainly not as good as it used to be, from the service to the food. We arrived at 5:15pm on a weeknight. The bar had activity yet the dining room... More

Four seems too high, but 3 too low. I enjoyed the Sauerbraten. Often when eating a German restaurant I will opt for Jägerschnitzel but this was a nice change. What was a let down was the setting. As the second oldest eatery in Boston Jocob Wirth is a big disappointment. With its formica tables tables it feels soulless. What a... More

I want to thank you for your visit to Jacob Wirth. I also appreciate your kind words on our Sauerbraten. It is one of my favorites. I am perplexed by your comment on the tables and ambiance. Our tables are all wood and many have been in service for 100 years. The general feel is a Beer Hall just as... More

We'd just flown in from UK & my wife had already chosen this place for our post-travel dinner as it was only a couple of blocks from our hotel. We were very excited to be back in the States & this experience ticked every box for us.....the German Mixed Grill was huge (Smoked Bratwurst, Weisswurst, potato salad, red cabbage &... More

My kids are older and picked this place in part because of the extensive beer list and the German food. We had a great seat with no wait. We all tried different things starting with a wedge salad. Two of us had the specialty pretzel sandwiches which were really good. They come with a choice of fries, mashed potatoes, red... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
