Old-time beer hall & local institution for German food & vast beer selection since 1868.- Google
"Wide selection of beer and also turns into a piano bar some nights."
"For $40 you get: Disappointingly average lukewarm knockwurst and bratwurst."

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.

For $40 you get: Disappointingly average lukewarm knockwurst and bratwurst. Watery sauerkraut, ambiguous potatoes, and your choice of exactly one cheap american mustard in a grimy bottle. Good beer selection. Good cornbread. Decent apple strudel. Dilapidated decor. Over priced. Nothing German left of this place. Needs overhaul.

Piano bar? The sound system they use for that poor guy (excellent musician and entertainer) was the same one they use to say "So-and-so part of whatever, your table is ready." Which sounds awful. And is not nearly loud enough. Seriously, upgrade the sound. You can't really call it a music place if you have one microphone to share.

Omg the pretzels are something I could buy at a grocery store and make myself and I got a simple burger and fries the fries were just awful it was like they were baked and left out for an hr and then reheated the burger wasn't bad but it wasn't worth 12$

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.

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.

Good food! I went for the 25 cent wing night and ate a bunch of delicious wings and had a root beer float! I would absolutely return!

Such a fun spot! Hidden right off Washington, near Chinatown is a killer German restaurant and beer hall... who knew! The spaetzle was incredible and you could spend all night trying some of the really great beers they have on tap.
