Amrheins has been a Boston tradition since 1890. For over a century, diners throughout the city of Boston have been welcomed into Amrheins to enjoy quality meals amongst friends and neighbors. Today that tradition continues in our updated facility. Despite the renovations in 2005, Amrheins is still full of history. Amrheins is the proud home of the oldest hand carved bar in America and still has the first Draft Beer pump in Boston on display. But what really makes Amrheins special is its dedication to quality cuisine and superior service. We hope that you join us again soon.

Unattractive with unhappy overworked staff. Shrimp overcooked. Room we requested not open. Big disappointment.

Very Bostonian atmosphere at this historic restaurant. Excellent staff. Food was okay, not bad, not amazing. Prices were good, great kid's menu.

The cowboy rib eye was excellent. My wife has to eat gluten free and they had choices for her. She had the turkey tips which were also excellent. Our waiter was very attentive. We were able to have a nice dinner and enjoy the atmosphere. The historic bar was a interesting piece of intricate woodwork. We will be coming back.

Sunday brunch is the best deal around. The prices are incredibly reasonable until 2pm. The service is wonderful and our wait person let the 4 of us talk and talk. The food was delicious.

Very dependable. Our waiter seem to have a lot of problems understanding our orders for food and drinks which was a bit frustrating.. it's great having a parking lot right next to the restaurant. Parking in southie can be very challenging. The menu is extensive and the prices are reasonable.

It's always a pleasure to eat at Amrhein's in South Boston. It has been the go to place for many years when meeting up with family and friends. The bonus is the parking lot which is rare in this part of the city. The food is delicious and the waitstaff extremely efficient and pleasant.

Good food was excellent. Service very good. Have a noisy star because we sat outside and during rush hour. I know inside isn't noisy. We went on a Tuesday and it was not busy. I think a lot of people think Amrheins has closed because of some press several months ago about the building being sold. IT IS OPEN!

We made reservations very easily for 5. Service and food were great. You can’t beat the price for the quality of the food. Noise level was high so it was hard to hear a conversation at the table. But it wouldn’t stop me from going back!!

First impressions are lasting and this one was spot on.
Classic old school Boston with enough Southie to keep it real.

Definitely worthy of multiple future visits.

I would recommend for only social interactions and casual lunch engagements. I found the place to be too open and loud for a business lunch. We were straining to hear each other and the back section (which would have been much better for what we needed) was closed off. Otherwise, the food was pretty good and they had their own off-street parking which is huge in the area. Waitstaff was prompt and courteous, too.

Great pub in South Boston. Has bar side and quieter dining room.
Great atmosphere with lots of warm wood and a unique bar ornately carved.
Menu has a good variety that includes small plates, entrees, sandwiches and pizza. Also a specials menu. Lots of choices for beer, wine and specialty cocktails. Great for after work dining.

Food was outstanding, and came out quickly (before we even finished apps). Sit in the "Curley Room", which is away from a busy bar crowd.

Loved the size of the menu. Even with the noise level being a 3/4 (appropriate for a tavern-ish restaurant), it was more intimate then was expected! Loved the atmosphere, perfect for a casual date.

We took out of town guests and they loved it! One was gluten free and the other had the lobster mac and cheese. The guy raved about how good the lobster mac and cheese was and he is very picky about his mac and cheese. Our boiled dinners were outstanding! Parking was easy and our reservation was ready when we got there a little early! Everything was outstanding!!

Even though we had a reservation, they did not have room for us so we were put at a table in the bar near the door. It was EXTREMELY loud and very cold. The waitress was friendly (not her fault). We were very disappointed.
