GraduationWe celebrated my son's graduation with lunch. The service and food was great! We all rolled
away from the table very happy!!!! Thank you for a wonderful time!
PS, my husband and I came back later that night for dinner. It was a wild bar scene compared
to lunch time, but we had fun!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFriday night SingalongMel Stiller's singalong is the reason to go to JW.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGracious HostsJacob Wirth is a long standing restaurant in Boston from the 1890's with the classic features of a German Beer Hall. There is an excellent selection of beer - less so with the wine- and the food is wonderful. The small plates are really enough for dinner. It is German food so it is a bit heavy but it was really very tasty particularly the wienerschnitzel. The wait staff was really very accomodating to us as we were stuck in heavy traffic and after several phone calls letting them know how we were progressing, we finally made it. While we had given up our table due to being so late, they still found us a table and were able to quickly serve us to still make our 7:30pm show time. We are planning to return to enjoy a more leasurely meal!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went before seeing a showWe went before seeing a show at the Wang. Had a great time!

Superb wurstsCool ambience. Superb wursts served with sauce to die for. Fabulous beet selection. Quick and caring service.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMJacob Wirth ExperienceJacob Wirth is very convenient to the theater district of Boston and has an interesting atmosphere. It keeps the look of a turn of a century pub. Good place to go after a performance at the Wilbur or the Citi Performance Center. Seems to have a lively bar business. Restaurant area is not disturbed by the bar crowd. Food is average or a little better than average. Good selection for family...we had 4 adults, a 12 yr. old and an 8 yr. old in our party. There were plenty of food selections for everyone's taste. We have eaten there many times after performances.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe meal was very good butThe meal was very good but the two scotches we ordered were more ice than scotch. The rocks glass was about a third filled mostly ice. I have been coming to JW for 40 years but will never waste my money on a drink from the bar again. I 'll order a beer or wine .4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is an authentic GermanThis is an authentic German meal that simply can't be matched anywhere I know of. Everything from the beer menu to the food and atmosphere reeks of authenticity. I look forward to visiting Boston so I can go to Wirths4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMMy girlfriend and I had aMy girlfriend and I had a very nice time. We enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant. The restaurant has been a family favorite for years, however, this was our first time. Overall, our experience was very pleasant. The staff was polite and our service was quick. The decor of the restaurant was very authentic and we enjoyed ourselves very much. We will most certainly be back.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThey were playing some guessingThey were playing some guessing game which made it very noisy and we were unable to converse at our table4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat German food.

I'm half German, make sauerbraten at home, so am particular. Jacob Wirth's sauerbraten met the challenge; meat fork tender, red cabbage perfectly seasoned with , spaetzle. Next time, and there will be a next time, I'll order the potato pancakes as a side (will have to skip the yummy German Chocolate Whoopie Pie to make room). Our friend had the wiener snitzle which also got high praise.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had an excellent meal andWe had an excellent meal and an enjoyable experience.

Regardless we had a great time; it is reminiscent of a beer hall, and the food was really tasty! If you want a taste of Oktoberfest JW is a great local choice!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMHistoric and friendly settingHistoric and friendly setting and great service. Comfort food!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistent food, drink, serviceI rated ambiance as good since it was a bit noisy (as it always is...nothing different) and because our table was next to the server station, which is always busy. Food was very good, as was the selection, options for different courses, beers and other libations. We were pleased to be able to use a Groupon during our visit....I liked that some of the entrees were available as apps, so you can try before you buy. Overall very good, and we'd return. Service was excellent.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was wonderfulThe service was wonderful and so was the food. We saw a lot of families and have decided that this will be a place to bring our daughters next time we are in Boston. They love German food, I grew up on it living in Germany for eight years, and my children and husband have learned to love it too! I highly recommend Jacob Wirth for anyone that wants a place they can take their family! This is also a great place for couples and anyone that just wants to go out for a drink and be around cool people.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe ambiance was informal,The ambiance was informal, friendly, with great food and great service.
