Second time at the Lincoln
Second time at the Lincoln Tavern. The first time I had the Tuna entree and the second time I had the salmon. DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Probably the best two meals I have had outside of my home. Don't get rid of the Chef.

When I called to confirm my reservation at Lincoln, I spoke to Lindsay. She was straight to the point, seemed like I was bother her to double check my reservation. When I called a second time to tell her we are going to be a few minutes late, she was again, not very friendly. When we arrived at the restaurant there was a small line outside. I told the guy at the door who was checking ID's that we had a reservation. He told us we don't take reservations here with a nasty tone. I have been to Lincoln several times, and always had a good experience but this past experience was lacking Hospitality from the host stand and from the man checking IDs. I will return again, just hope the staff is a little more hospitable

Great hot spot in Southie
This place is a great addition. This isn't bar food -- much better. Waitstaff are friendly, nice look and great food.

You have to go here!
Absolutely delicious! The Mac and cheese and butternut squash pizza were to die for!

Had a great b-day dinner.
Had a great b-day dinner. Good beer selection, tasty aptz/entrees, a yummy dessert on the house and a b-day card to boot!
Only downside is that it was a bit loud, but that won't deter us from coming back soon.

First time here and was absolutely blown away by the locale. The restaurant itself is really great looking. We went for brunch and had two eggs + brunch taters + bacon, and a burger with rosemary fries. Both dishes were delish, and the service was very attentive.

Quite the buzz!
Noisy but comfortable. My dish was good but not outstanding, but the other three people really enjoyed their dinners. The oven roasted meatballs on polenta are truly fabulous! Their specialty cocktail was outstanding, as was the service.

Our food and service were great but they were very busy and the noise level made it difficult to hear one another at times. Had been here before when not so busy and enjoyed a nice lunch!!will return but not on a busy week end nite :-)

My 2nd Home Boston MA
As a Washingtonian I love the restaurants in the metropolitan area. I also enjoy visiting Boston and enjoying the many options provided, because I travel and work alone, I have to eat alone, this restaurant does not offer a quiet corner if that's what you are looking for. What it does offer is great food and service. My waitress provided a nice white wine based of my preference, I enjoyed this with the Artichoke appetizer it was lite and delicious. I then ordered a nice glass of Malbec, to go along with my Braised Short Ribs cooked to perfection; portion could be shared. I had the Tiramisu for desert it was different and good. I would return alone or with guests. I especially liked how everyone cleared the table if you were finished.

Bustling Brunch !
This is our second time at the Lincoln Tavern... the first a Friday night. The food imaginative & delicious, the service very good (front desk, bar and wait staff) but the atmosphere too TGIF for us. We were pleased despite the noise level and decided to come back from Brunch ... so glad we did.
The bar staff were bubbly and on top of the job. We were seated about 15 minutes later (as promised when we asked to wait for window seat) at a perfect table.
Our waitress was excellent - even handling the delay in getting our entrees. The food very good (our egg choices not as amazing as the fish entrees at dinner. We are likely to become a regulars ... just not on a Friday or Sat night - leave that for young professionals.

very good dining
Meatball pizza was excellent, as was the goat cheese dip with sour dough bread, both were delicious! I plan to come back to try the other pizzas. Everyone finished their dinners and Nutella pizza with banana for dessert was great. Mashed potatoes for my meal was a thin layer on a small part of plate, but asked for a small bowl as a replacement. Will definitely be back!

LOUD!! Great food, caring staff
Actually went here over a month ago and had an interesting experience - first off, the place is LOUD!! Went with my husband and our 24 yr old daughter and her new boyfriend, we were screaming across the table from one another. Very hectic bar scene too. The food was outstanding, don't remember what we all had but universally liked it. The "problem" was they messed up my entree and as a "make good" brought us a complimentary dessert, very thoughtful. It was some sort of chocolate cake. Unfortunately we didn't ask what was in it and the boyfriend has a peanut allergy. They were very helpful, we rushed to the hospital, he was kept overnight. All worked out fine, they comped everything, would absolutely go back!!!

Great Southie spot
I have been here a few times since it opened and this is my favorite spot in the area. Food is consistently good (not always amazing but reliable) and the crowd is fun. Hard to believe this place was an empty store front for years! Best item on the menu is the goat cheese dip!

Great menu, the food and drinks were excellent!! It was a little loud in there for conversations but overall it was a great experience.

Excellent service, excellent food, great decor. More of a younger crowd but all welcomed. Only down sides are parking can be challenging later at night and it is very, very loud. Would recommend.

Very Loud but Good
Been here a few times and it has definitely improved. Emerald was an awesome server. Food was great as were the drinks. Like other reviewers - it is EXtremly loud to the point where it is hard to hear conversation and I felt like I had to shout. Crowd is very young. We left straight after dinner as it was too loud. Parking is tough but if you get a spot pop in.....with your hearing aid.

Food was good, but . . .
Yes, everyone is right. This place is extremely noisy. But the food was very good and very lively. I usually don't like to order hamburgers out but I gave it a try and it was one of the best I've had in a restaurant. Don't know if there is anything they can do about the noise, but I'm sure the young crowd that frequents this restaurant probably don't mind as much as us "older" folks!

A Great Destination
Saw the Lincoln reviewed on Chronicle, some really interesting entrees, decided to give it a try.
Had the wife review the menu beforehand. she has a hard time deciding anything other than salomn.
She said she could pick 6-7 things from this menu. You will have a hard time deciding what to order for an app, the entree and the dessert. fDinner was excellent. Our server was excellent, she offered honest suggestions and was a bit of a charector herself.

Neighborhood hidden gem
The Lincoln Tavern is off the beaten path if you are visiting Boston but well worth the trip. They offer a shuttle service that is so friendly. The food took a while to arrive but it was well worth the wait. Servers were on top of it and very attentive. You won't be disappointed.

Bar first.. Restaurant second
Energetic, bumping atmosphere. Has the feeling of being a bar primarily and a restaurant secondarily. That being said the food was very good though slightly disappointing in portion size compared to the dishes shown on the Phantom Gourmet.

Upscale bar food, great value
Fantastic food at a great price. Short ribs with mac n' cheese, burger, pizza all outstanding. Great beer list and service. Cool, energetic vibe.

New Favorite Spot
My boyfriend and I went here the other night and are still talking about it. Everything was great! We started with the Kobe sliders and the spicy wings- both amazing. He had the burger. It was so big and tasty. I had the scallop dish, which was my favorite scallop dish I've ever had in a restaurant. Everything we ordered was suggested to us by our waitress who was so sweet and knowledgeable. They have a large cocktail menu with a lot of beer, but I ordered a bottle of wine. It was an expensive one, but they sell it cheaper then liquor stores do. It was delicious. I know it's a bit out of the way if you're in downtown Boston but it is totally worth going. It is our new favorite place to go!

Great spot, attentive service, delicious food and drinks, friendly environment, 'nuff said.

We had a wedge salad, which our waitress advised was large enough for two, and she was right. It was very great version of the salad and we really liked it. The pizza was also terrific. Bar excellent and the wait staff very attentive but not intrusive.

Didn't know too much about this place, but took a flyer on it and was not disappointed. My business associates too were impressed. Loved the grilled artichoke with Bearnaise. Could have bathed in it!

Lincoln Tavern A Must For Dinner
We had heard about the Lincoln Tavern and Restaurant on a TV food program and we were not disappointed at all. In fact, it was better than expected. I had the braised short ribs (maybe the best I have ever had), while my wife had the squash pizza--incredible. We also had an outstanding server who also gave us some recommendations. We made reservations which we were glad we did because by the time we left, a line had formed to get in. Only downside was the noise. The restaurant is attached the bar and it was very noisy. There was a college football game on TV which might have added to the noise. Despite the noise, we had a great experience and will definitely go back. It is truly a must for dinner

Been here a few times and
Been here a few times and I'm always generally pleased. Tonight our server was excellent - super friendly and attentive - and she suggested the new flank steak app which was amazing and perfect for three guys. I ordered the pork chop which came with roasted broccolini and "pancetta bread pudding." Normally I have nothing bad to say about the food here but I was a bit disappointed with my meal - the " 14 oz" pork chop was at least 60% fat, and the broccolini was a little overdone. The "bread pudding" was delicious, but I'd call it oversized stuffing rather than pudding. My friends got the burger and fried chicken and both raved about it so overall I'd call it a success - just wouldn't recommend the pork chop.
