Wow the new renovations looked great! We got the buffalo chicken dip for an app and it was fabulous. I got the Parmesan haddock and my friend got the Salmon both were delicious. The service was great our server was very friendly and engaging. The manager Colleen checked in on us a few times which really showed they care she also told us a lot of history about the place which was really cool. I highly recommend going to Amrheins. The best part is there is a huge parking lot!

We went to get the filet and they took it off the menu in the past month. We were disappointed! Still a great place but would love for it to get put back on!

It was a great mix of old and new. I got the the steak tips and they were the best I ever had. Our server was very efficient and pleasant. My friend got the Salmon and she said it was delicious. We had a really good time. It was casual but had class. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to have a nice night out with friends for a drink. And the fact that there is parking makes it even better

Amrhein's was a delightful experience. The craft cocktails were well done, the bread is awesome and the dinners were tasty and comforting. The service was outstanding as it was my daughter's 21st birthday and the server and manager made every effort to make it a memorable occasion. My daughter's dinner came out incorrectly and the manager came over to buy the table drinks. A lovely gesture and completely unexpected. The missing dinner came out but my daughter was too full to eat much of it, although she said it was very good. We mentioned that we were all servers/bartenders or had been and had experienced the occasional kitchen mess-up. The manager then decided that he would pick up the entire check. A wonderful and unexpected gesture! We will certainly be back to Amrhein's and have told all our friends about our experience.

Amrheins ha been recently updated and it has a much brighter feel. Same great food and service, just looks a little more chic and updated while keeping its Southie charm. I had a yummy glass of wine and a huge salad for a great value, will be back soon!

Great area staple, good food with a nice cozy vibe. My biggest complaint would have been the service, I am not sure if the restaurant is understaffed or if it was just our waitress but she disappeared for 20 minutes. Our waitress didnt deliver our food, check in on us or refilled our drinks. We asked another waitress if we could order drinks with her but she just said "no" and walked away. She showed up near the end of dinner to ask if we wanted dessert. A bit of a disappointment but the food is great and the cozy vibe is nice.

Asked our hotel for a recommendation for my adult daughters birthday. We are from out of town. They suggested a perfect spot. Portions large enough to share prior to dinner. Excellent beef, cooked perfectly. For only $10.00 extra you had a generous serving of lobster meat topping the filet and steaks. Food was hot, attractively arranged and delicious. The broiled cauliflower was very tasty.
Service was excellent and they even made a fuss for her birthday. Dessert menu made choosing a challenge. The Boston creme pie and sundae were both good.
Caprese salad, shrimp cocktail-enormous-and clam chowder all were shared and beyond expectations. Dipping bread and dinner rolls also great.
Warm atmosphere, charming, clean, bar separate from dining parking on site and free.

We had a big group, that grew larger than expected, with some difficult members but the staff kept its cool and hung in there, keeping us informed of what was happening and working as quickly as possible to satisfy everyone. Great food! I had French onion soup that was just right. The schrod was perfect. Not too seasoned and cooked to perfection. Delicious, roasted butternut squash just mashed enough. Traditional mashed potatoes. Just great! Very comfortable with seasonal decorations that were just enough over the top.

They were slammed so our reservation got pushed back. The manager bought us complimentary drinks. We got seated in the back room away from the bar where it was less noisy. The waitress was extremely friendly. Food came out great, the wine was very good as well. Definitely recommend and going back soon!

Earlier the same day we reserved for group of 5 (4th grade through 50-ish), and after stopping at Logan Airport to pick up our 5th we made the quick trip to South Boston for our first dining experience at Amrheins. We parked in their ultra-convenient lot, and although we checked in about 20 minutes early for our reservation we were pleased to find that Amrheins was able to seat us immediately. We enjoyed a variety of dishes -- shepherd's pie, chicken pot pie, lobster pie, burger, French onion soup, etc -- and were all pleased with the food and service. Will definitely keep this establishment in mind for a return trip!

Came for brunch with a group of eight, some were staying just for a drink and others joined later. Food was delicious and the service was fantastic! Our server was extremely friendly and accommodating our large group with some needing to leave earlier than others. Would highly recommend!

Amrheins is a good, local, comfortable restaurant/bar. The food is excellent and varied so it fits the appetite for most people. It is not fancy and that is what is nice about it. A bit noisy but not over the top as many other restaurants in South Boston. Staff is great although busy. This week we got their pumpkin risotto special and haddock. Both excellent and recommended.

Definitely a fine list of comfort foods– including the BEST mac N cheese I've had in a restaurant. I find that others are usually very dry, but there's is nice and cheesy/saucy. I have yet to have anything bad on their menu.

**Always try to make a reservation or go late. This place has a wait until 9 or 10pm on the weekends.

... but this neighborhood staple fell down on the job. We were a party of six and you'd think we'd have gotten some attention because of that. However, although our waitress seemed friendly and smart, she seemed to have too many tables to pay attention to. Our drinks order was taken promptly, but no one checked on refills for a long time. Although we ordered 4 of the same entree, 2 orders came out and then, 20 minutes later, the other 4 arrived. The servers were not told where to put the plates, and had to ask - but didn't realize that with 4 entrees, the only difference was in the sides, and that confused them. (The food was good, by the way.) We weren't in a rush and actually enjoyed the extra time together, but this service was well below par, and the kitchen needs supervision. They comped us on desserts (also good) and a round of drinks, and we left a normal tip, but they definitely need to improve. For a restaurant that's over 100 years old, that was quite a surprise.

Went on a Saturday so I expect it to be busy, but service was extremely slow and then they rushed cooking the prime rib and it wasn't cooked enough. Appetizer took over 20 min and then another 15 for the meal after that. They also brought the wrong appetizer at first.

I am always impressed with the wait staff and even though it my be busy in the restaurant they always treat you like you are the only one there. Kudos to "A" our waiter (for the 2nd time) who even remembered us even though it had been over a month since we last had dinner there.

We traveled from the Andover, MA area due to a special offer we had purchased. We had not been there before but had heard good things. We enjoyed our dinner and my wife had an excellent Haddock dish while my short ribs were delicious. We also had an appetizer and beverages. Service was very courteous and we were more than satisfied with our trip to South Boston.

To start, the website makes this place look like a fancy fine-dining establishment with photos of white tablecloths and a higher-end menu. It's really just a nice, airy neighborhood bar and restaurant where people of all demographics come together. You don't have to worry about a dress code or anything while eating your filet mignon. Overall, I think Amrheins is having an identity crisis. Does it want to be a neighborhood bar and restaurant or does it want to be a fine dining establishment with cuts of steak, lamb, seafood, etc?

If you are going to serve high-end food, it has to be cooked right and ours was not. I ordered my filet mignon medium and it came out on the well end of med-well and my husband ordered his lamb med-rare and it arrived extra well done (it was gray and nearly inedible). After looking forward to a nice dinner with some higher end food, we left rather disappointed.

Amrheins is still a neighborhood gem 125 years later. I hadn't been since my Aunt & Uncle took me there as a kid back in the 70s. While they have done some needed refinishing they have maintained the charm of its age. The food was great and excellent value particularly compared with neighboring downtown Boston. I won't wait 40+ years to go back!
