American
Located in the heart of South Boston, Lincoln is a classic American tavern that offers guests a welcoming combination of home-spun, American fare alongside a wide variety of rustic, wood-fire-grilled specialties.

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 food, waiter was an adorable irish man who gave good recommendations, wonderful experience, host/hostess need more control over the people coming up to them on the street trying to come up without a reservation, probably need security or something.

Been there a number of times, just catching up with my son who lives nearby. Good food, service, and location - lucked out with a parking spot a block away too. All good

Needed a dose of normalcy during the virus. Went for the excellent $1 oysters and Proclamation Tendril IPAs. Enjoyed some shrimp cocktail and spicy chicken wings as well. The service was great and the room was comfortable. Enjoyed watching the crew shuck the oysters. Parking in the area can be a challenge but it's well worth it. Can't wait to go back again.

Very pleased with our first visit to Lincoln Tavern. Servers were very friendly and accommodating. Food was good; especially the wings & pizza. Blueberry doughnuts are outstanding! Save room for dessert.

In the past I have LOVED Lincoln. And, I've been back since the reopening, and had a great time overall. This past time seemed a bit off, not sure why. The sliders are usually amazing, and this time they were just "good". The same with the bar steak ribeye. I've been raving about it to my bf, and I finally got him there, and this time it just was not as amazing as I'd remembered it being, even from just a few weeks ago. Our waitress towards the end of the meal was also very impersonal. But she may have just been having a bad night. No worries, we tipped well because we get it. :). Hoping food is back up to its normally amazing standards next time.

Only have been to Lincoln Tavern as a night time spot to drink, now I know to come for the food as well! Had an amazing brunch with some of the most amazing options in the area. The Burrata Pizza was by far the favorite. The pulled pork sandwich was a tad dry but a little extra BBQ sauce could’ve taken it to a whole new level. The blended drinks are good but don’t have much of a punch. All in all I would come back for a nice boozy brunch with friends!

Pleasant outdoor dining experience, easy to use QR codes to access menu and payment to practice social distancing with the staff.
Comfortable outdoor space, and the extra flowers and decor added to the ambiance, even though we were sitting on a busy city sidewalk!

Be careful with what you order. Some items on their new menu is VERY BLAND. I ordered the fried chicken plate and everything on it was under seasoned with no flavor. Our waiter was quite accommodating and let us switch out. I got a steak and cheese and truffle fries and it was amazinggggg. The appetizers were ehhhh. The drinks are STRONGGG. Overall you should have a good time if you choose your meal wisely
