Lincoln Tavern and Restaurant
Built with the intention of being a comfortable meeting spot for locals looking to share stories at the end of their long day, Lincoln draws inspiration from it’s surrounding, hard-working, and uniquely American neighborhood.
Revitalizing a nearly forgotten West Broadway space that at one time housed the area’s only department store, Lincoln feels nostalgic. It’s open-air, tiled-floor cafe, grande bar, and soaring, original tin ceilings remind us of a time when dining halls and supper clubs were a way of life.
Great meal! Waitress was very nice
Everything is great except the acoustics; depending on where you're seated, even a sparsely populated crowd can make it difficult to hear. Again though, great place to grab a bite!
I went to Lincoln Tavern for Saturday Brunch. I loved the atmosphere. The ONLY bad thing is parking. The closest one besides the parking lot directly across from it (which isn't the restaurant's parking it just general parking) is a 15 minute walk away.
I'm really grateful the hostess was nice enough to let my friend and I push our reservation out since my friend was painfully late so we missed our initial reservation! It made our night we were still able to eat there, and at a reasonable hour too!
I like the vibe at Lincoln, but it seems that the food has gone downhill. I had the fattiest steak of my life while eating there on 03/05. I’d say about 60% of the cut was fat that I had to cut off of my $28 steak. Really disappointing. Still good service and a fun vibe, but probably won’t eat there anymore.
Way too noisy
Our go to neighborhood place. Loud, but food is good. Always full. Place is popping.
Great food and atmosphere. Very noisy. Service was pleasant.
Saturday dinner at 7pm: Great food, fun atmosphere, but very very loud and the music kept getting louder even as early as 9pm.
The ambiance was great per usual. Our server was very attentive and quick even though it was busy. Great brunch food!
Was very impressed with the food. It was very noisy but we had a late dinner.
Overall solid meal. Well prepared salmon bowl and hanger steak and the burgers were perfect. Definitely recommend the calamari. We’ll be back the next time we’re in Boston.
The food was delicious and reasonably priced. Service was excellent even though the place was packed. Noise level was very loud, hard to hear ourselves talking but we had a booth near the bar area. I will go back.
Had Brunch at Lincoln on a Monday. I definitely think their weekend brunch is better but regardless enjoyed My meal and the company.
We do brunch here often - amazing drinks and great menu choices! The short rib poutine with a fried egg on top is out of this world!
Lincoln brunch is delicious. A little better and more special that a diner. A Southie got spot for sure
I've been wanting to go to this restaurant for a while and I was not disappointed. Great staff, fun atmosphere and most importantly, the food was delicious. We went on Friday and the offered a Test Kitchen menu and it was great to try different items.
Drinks were garbage unless you get the bubbly bucket. Food was mediocre and ambience was good until the wave of college kids come around 1pm, which make the noise level go way up. Server didn’t seem to care about our table, I wouldn’t want to come back.
Although there was an issue with the heat and the bathrooms were extremely cold, it was an enjoyable experience with very good food and a great atmosphere.
Great service and delicious food. Nice ambiance and nice that they have two bars. Will go back!
We made reservations for dinner at 8:15 pm and found the atmosphere to be an active bar scene with loud music which didn't allow us to talk with our guests. The food was barely passable so maybe we just ordered wrong e.g. soggy pizza, coconut shrimp. So, our lesson learned - don't go on a weekend night if you expect to have an enjoyable dinner with friends. The service was good.
Very loud, very young crowd.
Cool place to eat, despite it being very loud. Service and food were both excellent.
nice setting, reasonable on street parking, organized and professional staff. large restaurant filled with millennials for Saturday brunch. some yelling between tables to friends. the main issue was the LOUD MUSIC NOISE THAT MANAGEMENT THINKS ADDS AMBIANCE. MANAGEMENT IS WRONG. tin roof wood floors and high ceilings don’t need background music that loud. even the millennials were bent at 45 degrees towards the others at their table to converse. Food and staff and service is phenomenal but i will never go back. i recommend noise cancelling two communication setups if you go. the issue is bad management.
Always love to go to Lincoln. Kayla was a GREAT waitress and the food is amazing. Test kitchen forever!!!
I am biased - but I love this place.
Very noisy, and awful service. Took about 20 minutes to get our first drinks and main course came before appetizers. Food was great though
Brunch at the Lincoln Tavern is a must! The food and service is top notch!! Must try, highly recommended! Got the fruity pebbles pancakes and the breakfast pizza. Both delicious!!
Some of the best food in Boston. Had the burger which was amazing
Great brunch option and very nice waitress!
To much noise
We are from Ohio and Chicago. In town for a wedding. Ate here on the suggestion of our Uber driver. Plus they had a lot of TVs for the Rose Bowl. We expected average bar good but instead we got above average to excellent food! Drinks were good. Service was awesome. Friendly waitress and very honest at menu suggestions.
The Lincoln Tavern was a disappointment for dinner. The issue was noise. It was so very loud that I couldn't speak with anyone in the party. I would not recommend the Lincoln Tavern for that reason. Plenty of Southie kiddies drinking and spreading their wings - a rather immature atmosphere best sums it up. Have fun !!
Not a lot of vegetarian options besides pizza. Wish they had a veggie burger!
Great Friday brunch! Highly recommend everything on the menu! Breakfast pizza was delicious!! Great service and atmosphere.
I am in walking distance to this restaurant so it is convenient. They make a great martini.
Neighborhood gem! Awesome food and great service.
Love this spot!
Waitress was mean and acted like she didn’t want us there.
The Food and the wait staff were outstanding, I can't wait till my return visit to see if it happens all the time
Excellent !! Not a bad thing to say. Food was excellent as was service !
