Jacob Wirth

We are the 2nd oldest restaurant in Boston and the longest consecutively running tradition in the city. The original round mahogany tables and bar have welcomed one and all both young and old for over 142 years. Share a meal and moment in history where the people who built Boston did. Where Larry Bird came after walking off the court his last night of being a Boston Celtic. Most recently where Hollywood has found inspiration featuring Jacob Wirth in "Knight and Day" and "The Company Man." Where Boston"s Big Dig was drawn on napkin... Hey when you're 130 years old see if you get everything right!
We strive for great service here but sometimes things do not always go as planned. Both good and bad we would like to hear your experience and feedback. These comments can be sent to mfitzgerald@jacobwirth.com Thank you in advance!

"I expected a good experience on my first visit and was far from disappointed. The ONLY thing that would keep me from being a regular patron is the parking situation. I'm a suburbanite and hence, if parking isn't a breeze, I'm not going to visit frequently, but I will be back. The waiter was a really nice guy, the food was terrific and though a bit pricey (in Boston, it's expected) it was worth it."

"We came here after a theater matinee, we didn't know what to expect, but we did not expect what we felt was a seedy bar. Had a couple of appies and cold beers and headed elsewhere. Probably would have felt different if we hadn't just been to the theater and we were for the bar scene."

"This is a great spot in Boston for authentic German food and beer. Having spent time in Germany, and having enjoyed the food and drink, it's nice to have a place to go that's relatively local that serves some German tradition!"

"Jacob Wirth is not a place for a private dinner or date - rather, it's a place to go with a group of friends (the more, the better!). The scenery and fare are a mix of American and Bavarian, and the beer selection (they serve liters!) ranges from local (e.g. Harpoon) to authentic German (Aventinus, Franziskaner).
On weekends, they have a piano sing-a-along that every table can't help but join in on. Nobody's forced, but you'll find yourself singing along anyways. Anyone can make requests, and the pianists are your best friend as soon as you get your lungs working."

"We read reviews of other restaurants in the Boston theater district and ultimately decided on Jacob Wirth. We love German food and thought the price per plate looked reasonable (unlike many other Boston eateries that were outrageously overpriced). We made a reservation on Open Table to be sure we would eat when we wanted to. We had no trouble finding the restaurant and were seated right away. Service was quick, drinks were refilled promptly and food was delicious. The only downside was there were no 'German' choices on the children's menu. The most you could get on the children's menu was German potato salad. Other than that we would absolutely return and suggest it to friends."

"The waitress was very nice and helpful... party of 9 fit nicely at the table by the window. However, there was no wine to choose from - all out/not available . The food was not that good
1 - reuben tasted odd... was the corned beef old or just really odd seasonings?
2 - Schnitzel was really tough and over cooked
3 - spaetzle had odd flavor - is the all spice?
Great ambiance - close to theater - but not the best dining experience.

"Excellent German and other beers on tap. The German-American food is not fancy. Somewhere above ballpark and beer hall, but below delicatessen. Ambiance is comfortable, 1800s."

"I was really excited to take my boyfriend here for date night but the experience let much to be desired. The food was okay and I would describe as more American-German than German food. The service was fine. The pricing was reasonable. The beer selection is pretty good and I would send someone here for that component. Also they do have a sing along which I am personally not a fan of but I could see it being something someone who enjoys karoake enjoying. Overall a decent establishment but non-memorable."

"If you're in Boston and you like German food and beer served in an old world atmosphere, this is the place to go. It's very lively, particularly on Friday and Saturday nights when there's piano sing-a-longs after 8pm. Excellent beer selection, and the food is excellent. If you haven't been, you're missing out."

"Kitchen is poor. Ambiance is loud. The only good thing about this place is a wide beer selection. I'm not going to come back. Not recommend."
