Lincoln Tavern and Restaurant
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.

This place is garbage! the nashville hot sandwich was awful and dry and the fries it came with with burnt to a crisp... the biscuit with the egg and bacon was soooooooo dry i almost choked on it & the cheese dip as a starter had so much potential but was served with bread that was as tough as a flip-flop. complete waste of cash.
Had the oysters and the Lincoln burger. Told the waitress the burger was the best I’ve had in my entire life (50 years old).
I can’t think of anything I’d want to improve. Iced coffee was delicious, staff were attentive and friendly, burgers were thick but somehow cooked perfectly, atmosphere was relaxing, 90+ degrees outside, refreshingly cool inside. Prices were very reasonable and would absolutely go again. The only problem is they have a lot to live up to at the second visit!
We sat outside. Well constructed booths with umbrellas to shade from the sun or rain. Wait staff were terrific. Good was creative and good.
We really enjoyed our food and drinks, but service was really poor.
Fun atmosphere. Great to see the restaurant at full capacity. Going to order truffle fries next time.
Bianca our server was amazing! My fiancé and I had a late brunch, she was awesome.
Fun as always and service was great but was way too loud.
The food was pretty good but this placed seemed like somewhere to go more for drinking.
They just do it right
Best staff, amazing food and always a great time!!!
Avocado toast and fruit bowl sooo refreshing and the drinks are bomb, Bianca was such a great server!! Will def be back
Brunch is always a success at Lincoln. Food was delicious, service was great, a little loud at times but that’s just the vibe at Lincoln!
Their beef dumplings really surprised me at their deliciousness... move on to the fried chicken. Knocked my sox off. So happy that they included my favorite street corn from Loco... I've been asking for it for years!!!!!
Service was impactable. From start to finish. Was going to be 15 minutes late - so I called ahead of time to let them know - no problem. Sat immediately upon arrival. Waitstaff was phenomenal. Quick and friendly.
Only recommendation I would make would be to keep the corn off the mashed potato... I just like my food separated but #1. I'm weird about that. #2. It certainly isn't going to cause me not to order it again.
Food was amazing. Waitress was very attentive. Great music.
Our server Cassie was amazing.
Incredible food and awesome service! Very accommodating, we had a great time eating here.
The food isn’t anything to brag about, the drinks have very have cute names but they’re not very tasty, I give this place a huge thumbs down!!!!
Good service and food/bev
Food and drinks were great, service was great. The price is outstanding for the quality of the food.
Our waitress was awesome, very attentive but let us take our time while ordering. Always checked in when our drinks were almost empty to see if we’d like another.
Food was good and our server was great! Would definitely recommend
Excellent variety on the menu. Plates are delicious and extremely generous. Bloody Mary’s are delightful as well!
We stopped in as we arrived to Boston. Nice place and service was great. Food was not as good as we expected. The burger was a little undercooked for our liking and the chicken sandwich was dry. Everything else was good though.
I am a huge fan of Lincoln, but did not have a great experience due to poor service this night. It took a very long time to get any drinks or food.
Sean & I's typical sunday date night is cooking a hearty meal together and talking about all that we want to accomplish throughout the week. While we both usually look forward to this quality time, the season of chaos we've recently been in with new jobs and a fast approaching cross country move had us craving something different. An early dinner date @lincolnsouthbos was just what we needed to break up the monotony and we did not hold back on enjoying this time to our hearts content. We started the meal off with oysters (always a fun experience) and bevs. I had the "it be the booty for me", a delicious tequila cocktail with passionfruit and grapefruit soda. We followed up with the Waygu Dumplings- the broth had the perfect amount of spice & umami from the spicy shitakis. This dish was so good we slurpled the bowl clean! The scallops were some of the best we've had and pairing it with fried green beans, jalapeno whipped potatoes & creamed corn made the meal hearty and indulgent. The strip steak, while good, left a lot to be desired. After dinner, we somehow still had room for dessert and split the banana chocolate chip donuts. A really good call on our part! They were served warm, almost like a cider donut. They were incredibly moist and I had to refrain from drinking the malted butterscotch it was served with! All in all, an incredible night & we can't wait to come back.
Food and service were excellent, drinks were weak and full of ice. Give me a decent drink if I’m spending $300.
Best Bloodies for a Sunday morning. Add the Lincoln Sliders and you are good for the day!
Fantastic as always!
I really don't have any complaints. I appreciate the good food and good service. The sausage pizza isn't as good as I remember but was still decent.
We sat at the bar. Service was excellent - very attentive even when really busy. Great food too.
Our service mentioned that we were over our 90 minutes when we got the check but then asked if we wanted to get 1 more round, and we did want to but then after we just got out drink, someone else came over to the table about how they have a 90 minute limit and we were well over. We would not have gotten the other drink when closing our tab if we were going to get yelled at to leave right after.
The waitstaff was very friendly. We split the Buffalo chicken pizza and it was one of the best I’ve had in the city. The lemon drop martinis too!
Great Food. Excellent cocktails and service
Yes yes yes once again. Always killer. Make your resi now it’ll be the best decision you’ve ever made
Service was kind of spotty, but food and atmosphere were great!
Fantastic birthday brunch!!
Love this place! Food is always great, service is amazing and we always have a wonderful time at Lincoln.
Love the vibe, food, energy and service! Great Sunday brunch!
