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.

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.

We had to make it to a concert and told our waiter. He was incredibly responsive and efficient, taking our drink and dinner order, getting everything out quickly, and leaving us the bill when he brought the dinner so there was no wait or down time. We enjoyed our food, good pub fare. And made it to our concert in plenty of time. Nice neighborhood vibe.

Overall, I’d describe Amrheins as “pretty good” all round. They have a nice range of options for both vegetarians and meat eaters, and give free bread which is always nice. Service was good and ambience was nice though pretty quiet for a Saturday evening

It is obviously a popular place but we had to wait 40 minutes (with a reservation) and that makes it a difficult place to recommend. People working there were really nice and professional.

We had a blast at Amrheins. The manager Mike Sheridan was so hospitable and our waiter was amazing as well! We got there at 8:30pm and didn't end up leaving until way after 10:30pm because we were enjoying ourselves far too much. We will definitely be back!

New Year's Eve Dinner was great! This venue was my mother's favorite for decades,
growing up in Dorchester. She passed away in 1993 and always LOVED to dine here.


Great meal served by "Don't Walk Away Renee!"


Happy New Year!

I was really looking forward to having the breakfast buffet - according the website it is still going on, so I met a friend at Amrheins for brunch. Unfortunately there was no breakfast buffet, so we each ordered - my friend ordered and omelette with no toast - hers came with toast plopped on top, and her omlette was so well cooked there was no moisture left. I ordered two eggs sunny side down well done, and received eggs that were barely cooked sunnyside up. I had them redone, and they were just barely cooked on the other side. Everything on my plate was cold, as if it had been sitting room temperature, nothing was hot to eat. I and my friend will not be going back to Amrheins. We were very disappointed.
