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.

So many things are so wonderful about Lincoln... the food, the drinks, the environment, the adorable Christmas decorations. But I have never had good service here. Whether the restaurant is crowded or dead, our server is nowhere to be found. On one occasion when the restaurant was empty, all of the waitresses were sitting at the bar gossiping. On tonight's occasion, it was relatively busy but we saw our server only to order drinks, order food, and drop off the bill. We were parched without water for 35 minutes. Our waitress acted like it was a chore when we ordered food. We were planning on ordering a second round of drinks (at least an extra $50 to our bill), but since she was nowhere to be found, we decided to take our nightcap elsewhere. It's truly a shame since Lincoln has all of the difficult aspects of an all-star restaurant, but their waitresses are always terrible.

My wife and I went to Lincoln with our adult children today, and we really enjoyed the salad and pizza. We had a pepperoni, white, and squash pizza and all were great. Our only complaint was a not so good Bloody Mary and soda water side drink that had a funny taste. Great service and terrific experience overall.

Lincoln never disappoints. The menu is nothing out of the norm but all the dishes leave you full and satisfied. The ambiance is a perfect 5/5, sometimes the volume is a little higher than moderate. The wings for an appetizer are always outstanding with plenty of mesquite flavor.

The food was good as always but the pizza was just slightly undercooked. The chicken sandwich I had was good but the meat was a bit fatty with gristle and there was not that much to it. Additionally the bun was burnt so all I could taste was blackened char. The other two guests had salads and they were presented nicely and were well received. The coffee was not refilled and the waitress seemed a bit absent from checking on us due to volume of tables she had. Early side of lunch rush mid week so a bit unexpected.

Lincoln is one of my favorite places. I always take friends there when they come to visit whether it be for lunch, weekend brunch, or drinks at night.

The waitress we had was great! Super attentive and brought over a bucket of bubbles that I requested for my friend’s birthday via open table, right away. The food was great, as usual
