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.

Perfect for going with friends, a date, by yourself, it's a solid place to just chill out. Food has always been fantastic.

Bouncer id us but only question one if us and made her show 2 credit cards, asked her all these questions on her id and had one of us call her cell phone to make sure it was her. We are all way over age so it was just mind blowing and it was her bachelorette party that we were trying to have a good time while in covid-19 times. Was just shocking that it happens even though we’ve been there multiple times and this has never happened.

Unfortunately, this is the second time I have a bad experience at Lincoln. I always order a Tito’s Lemon Drop martini, never consistent. Either too sweet or too strong. Always have to ask for a remake.

The truffle fries were soggy... so looking forward to these 😔

We had two pizzas, the sausage and the the buffalo chicken. These were delicious. Additionally, we also had the coconut shrimp salad. This one wasn’t bad. However, too much cooked coconut sprinkled on top which made the salad a tad bit dry. Once you move things around it tasted better.

The chicken sandwich dinner... well the chicken was dry almost looked dehydrated.... regular fries were super oily and soggy. My guest did not eat it her plate.

Service, was mediocre. After the drink was remade, the server did not wait to verify the drink was made properly. He walked away. We were never asked if the food came out as expected or if it was good.

Not what we expected from Lincoln.

Service was great as usual, despite all the COVID-related hoops restaurant owners and workers are required to jump through just to make a living. I ordered the special - filet mignon, tiny blooming onions, and a cauliflower au gratin that was very different. Everything was cooked perfectly and quite delicious. There is always a lot of creativity in the “normal” food served here.

Great brunch with amazing food and top notch service. They really went above and beyond to make sure all our needs were met and that we had an amazing meal. The area in front where they set up tables for outdoor dining was designed very well and created a memorable experience. Highly recommend!

My only issue was that I requested to sit by the window and they sat other people there knowing a request was coming and they put people there ahead of my party. Ended up sitting inside as it started to rain.

I had dinner at Lincoln and just wanted to say THANK YOU x10000! I had mentioned in my reservation that it was a special occasion, and the host congratulated my friend on graduating from the fire academy and brought us two glasses of champagne to celebrate! It was so kind and really made our night. Thanks so so much again, can’t wait to come back!
