The sauerkraut balls were great. The only dark beers were Guinness and Jake's Dark. Jake's Dark was good enough. Had the wiener schnitzel with dill spaetzle. The veal was tender but in general all very bland. I'd go back once more to try some different dishes and perhaps change my opinion.

Food's great! Beer's cold! Live music is entertaining! The place to go if you're ever around the Theatre District of good ole' Boston!

Gets packed. Missing additional craft beers but overall good experience.

As a regular at Jacob Wirth I can attest to three things: 1. Their corn bread is amazing, and is served at every table when the menus are brought around. 2. Their German fare is the best you can find in a city like Boston. 3. They have some of the best beers on tap. Sing along nights are common at Jacob Wirth and adds to the ambience of the place, but do remember, this may mean that you may not be able to have a quiet conversation with your partner when the sing along is going on. Another thing to remember is that Jacob Wirth closes very early on certain weekdays and Sundays, so you may need to keep that in mind when visiting from out of town.

Great food, good staff. The burgers and sausages are hearty and delicious. Their house dark beer is really dark and yet light.

Food is good, service is horrible. I was finished with my food and the girl came back and asked if I got it yet. Waiting for the check was a 20 min. Wait. All I see is a bunch of girls sitting chatting. My waitress walks by me numerous times, doesn't even seem like I'm here. The other hand she may be new, but hello common sense to take care of your customer. Wanted another beer, but she just gave me the check, so I'm out to another place.

Very very nice waiter but overall the service was slow. The staff all congregate together, or completely disappear all together. The wait for food and to pay was long... They are lacking leadership to say the least. The food was great, large portions too.
