**Requests for patio seating are taken into consideration but are not guaranteed.**

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 was our first time and we had a wonderful experience. The wait staff was great, food was delicious and the rib which bun was delectable as were the oysters!
We sat outside and it wasn’t too noisy.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Excellent food. Got an unexpected, free dessert for our anniversary. Noise level / music was pretty loud but expected for the environment. Sat by the window with a lovely breeze. Would go again multiple times!

Steak was well done and too tough to chew, waitress didn’t come by for 30 minutes, never filled my water so I had to get up and get water myself from the bar. Usually it’s great but this time is was a little unenjoyable.

I've never had a meal at Lincoln that was less than excellent. It's generally pretty loud but as long as you're okay with that it's a fun spot. There are a few TVs to watch sports and the service is generally very good considering how busy they get. Highly recommend for American food.

Nice menu and place to catch a meal! I mistakenly ordered too many french fries and I wish the server had let me know that my meal came with fries too, but that's my own mistake and who is really losing with too many french fries!

I had made a reservation for a large (12 person) brunch party two weeks in advance and my friends and I had such an amazing time! Made the reservation through OpenTable, called to modify it since it was large, and kept in contact with admin. The drinks and food were amazing, ambiance was great (not hot in the summer inside too!), and was a lively/loud environment, but still was able to have good conversations. Some members of my party did arrive on time and waited 5 minutes or so. Definitely recommend for the food and accommodations for a huge brunch party, thanks! :)

Great ambiance and decor, food was okay but a little overpriced for its quality. We went there on a holiday and the speed of service was not great. Good for a try-out, would recommend somewhere else if you want better food

The food was very good. The service was dismal. We never received two of the items we ordered and they did not get one of our orders correctly. Our server was hardly seen. The restaurant is incredibly loud. It might help not to have the music so loudly which added to the noise level, especially because you could only hear the pounding bass of the music.

Amazing food! Fresh baked bread, marinara pizza and chicken wings all amazing. Highly recommend the Apple Fugi mixed salad with chicken also- topped off with a glass of wine at very reasonable prices. Our waitress was very attentive despite being busy.

This place was amazing. We are from Florida & I wanted to surprise my husband with his best friend driving in from NH & I picked this place. Mackenzie was our waitress & she was great! The avocado toast & blueberry muffin donuts to start off is A MUST TRY!!!! AMAZING - then from the drinks cocktails & of course to sitting outside in the beautiful patio area they built along with Mackenzie bring us a fried French toast with meat & berries it was delicious...This is a place not to miss.

First time back after covid. Entire place was filled with 18-22 years olds from the burbs.
Waiter was an absolute angel and the ranch for my margarita pizza was better than ever.
