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.

Went there for dinner on a Friday night and it was definitely a family restaurant feel. A lot of kids running around and the food was moderate. Cocktail menu was over the top with many items having a truly can sticking out of them. For 5 friends in their 30s, this place wasn't for us.

eh food is reasonably priced and acceptable......mashed potatoes were cold and my parmesan haddock was slightly overcooked. I had a gift card so it was all fine but that's my last visit - was pretty empty at 7p on a Saturday. sad.

Planning from the staff could have been helpful....I reserved a table for my wife's birthday....but I guess staff was not aware of my reservation as the table was not ready when I arrived...I had to sit near a bar, not exactly I had planned for my wife's birthday celebration....secondly, in the reservation as a special request I mentioned abut my wife's birthday but it was not cared by anyone.....I would not recommend this restaurant or bar to people with the plan of any kind of celebration...but food was good and staff were polite and friendly

Great food and service - the manager was very friendly to our party. Beer was fresh and the chicken parm could compete with North End.

Good old fashioned bait and switch. We looked up the menu prior to picking this restaurant and found all seafood items from the menu removed when we got there.

Overall pretty good. I wasn't greeted when I walked in, how was I suppose to know to sit anywhere that's available? Food came out fast; once seated, service was good. Overall, I would recommend.

We visited for an early dinner with a friend. The food was delicious, especially the corned beef hash. The server was nice but was overloaded so didn't check on us enough and made several errors. Normally the service is great.

The reviews for this place indicated that the food quality was superb and the service was on point. When we arrived, the outdoor seating we had requested was actually just a fenced off are of the parking lot. You will really just be seated on the asphalt spaces. The ambiance included parked cars, and busy traffic and a view of a gas station across the atr

Visiting Boston, I always make this place a must. It was wicked bonus to have be in town when the Pumpkin Risotto was still available. This is what deliciousness looks and tastes like. The staff were so professional and kind. Will always keep Place near and dear to my heart no matter where I live.

Had a great dinner at Amrheins Restaurant!!! The service was excellent from the moment we arrived and Meaghan is a wonderful waitress! Great ambiance and seasonal decor inside.

The drinks were really good and I enjoyed the pink mule (pretty sweet). The green tea shots were the best I’ve ever had! I got the chicken parm as an entree which I would highly recommend!! It was a hearty serving and delicious!

The only critique I have is we called prior about the drink menu and did not have a pleasant phone call experience. The person who answered the phone was not super willing to help and hung up on my friend.

Despite this I would still recommend Amrheins!

We came for the pumpkin risotto, it was meh. not the same recipe that A used to have. Turn the music down a little and get the old chef back! I love Amhreins, we’ve been coming for years but it’s lost the edge from the kitchen.

Six of us and some of our items a little off while others right on. But staff worked diligently to fix things brought to their attention,!such as pancakes that were not hot when another order of pancakes was. I picked the egg in the hole sandwich, which is supposed to be a BLT with an over easy egg inside a hole in the toast. The bacon was negligible and the egg overcooked so I paid $10 for toast with an overcooked egg and a tiny bit of bacon. An American breakfast was less and is 2 eggs with home fries so my meal was not worth it.?I was told by server that it was one of the best items on menu.!

One in our party have long and specific instructions as to what he meant by medium on his burger. Pink, pink, pink he said over and over. Came nearly brown, hardly any pick. That was hard to believe.

So a bit of a hit or miss. Brought us a Guineas we didn’t order but we didn’t have the heart to send it back! We still had a good time and the Guineas was perfect. Win some, lose some. Still love the place and it won’t be around much longer.

There are fewer and fewer family run restaurants that have been in the same spot for many gererations. In a neighborhood rapidly changing, it is great to go to a restaurant that wecomes me with same good food and friendly service that my grandfather probably got before I was born.

Love this restaurant. So sad it will eventually be torn down. I guess the land is more valuable than the restaurant. But always good food good service and great atmosphere.
