Lincoln Tavern and Restaurant
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.

I went to Lincoln Tavern with a friend for brunch, and while the atmosphere and actual space was great, we didn't love the food. We'd heard great things about their brunch options and while they had a variety of different breakfast and lunch options, we weren't that impressed by what we ordered. However, we'll definitely come back at night because it seems like a great bar with a large selection of drinks. All in all, we wouldn't necessarily recommend Lincoln for brunch but if I'm sure it's great for dinner and drinks after.
Got dripped on by the air conditioning throughout dinner
It was real good. I got the jambalaya. And we had a donut. Good mixed drink options. The lighting was good and there was enough space for people.
They could not find my open table reservation. I had to show my email confirmation
Lincoln hands down has a best food in Southie.
Got the scallops- they were awesome!!! Food is great. Later on Thursday evening it gets a little loud/more of a bar scene. We were seated in the front so it was a little hard to hear our friends during dinner. Sitting in the back by the booths would have been better!
Too loud for us!!!
They need some sound baffling
When the person next to has to lean over and then scream while your having a dinner conversation I have to say that there is a problem.
The avocado tartare and the bar steak with street corn are amazing additions to the menu.
Food was good but portions small. Very loud. Young bar crowd.
My family and I had an enjoyable dining experience here and will definitely return.
Food was good and service was very good.
Service was excellent. Waitress went out of her way to make it a nice dinner for us. Scallop dish was delicious and hamburger was also very good. Good, but not wonderful we’re the special .... fish tacos. People said the hake and relish were tasty, but a little disappointed that it was fried.... maybe a little too much batter. We were there around 6. Lucky to find parking across the street. Being early on a Saturday evening, it was not too crowded. Would definitely recommend.
The food suggested by the waitress had runny egg so she probably should’ve included this info in her recommendation because I wouldn’t have gotten it otherwise
The food was fantastic. We tried both the Scallops and the Short Ribs and they were both fabulous.
Our party has the coconut shrimp salad. The shrimp were tiny, but the salad had nice flavors. Another person got the pork chop which was phenominal and the third person in our party ordered the meatball pizza and was very pleased.
Great brunch! Totally unique food! And great spot with lots of cool spaces and a beautiful outdoor view!
AMAZING food. I preferred their dinner to their Brunch, but all of their food is great. I’ve had hit or miss experiences with the service, but the food makes it worth it. I don’t recommend coming too late for dinner unless you are planning to stay out drinking after. The noise is so crazy you can’t hear anyone.
Food was delicious and although it took us a while to be seated, the service once we were was great. Table by the open window is the best
The food was incredible but the service was only okay
I’m not from Boston, but I go to Lincoln for dinner every time I come to Boston bc the food is amazing and fresh. It’s all delicious! I highly recommend this American Food. The owners also own a couple other restaurants in the area that I cannot wait to try when I go back.
Lincoln is my favorite spot to bring visitors from out of town any time of day! stopped by twice this weekend and both times everyone was impressed!
Get the Burger!!
Good food, very loud. It’s a fun environment, but the food isn’t amazing like it was when it first opened.
First time having brunch there (always eat dinner) and brought friends from out of town. Everyone loved!
Good food. Service was a little slow. Loud, but a fun bar scene in Southie.
Had a wonderful brunch and would highly recommend the breakfast pizza.
Good food, drinks were great, service was quick and friendly. Would go again!!!
It was our first night in Boston. We were out wandering wanting to find something away from the convention centre. When locals are waiting for a table that's where I want to be. Found Lincoln Tavern on a Google map. Drinks were excellent, the food was great, though the Jerk Chicken could use a little more work, and dessert was brilliant.
Very spacious, The lincoln burger is The best burger I ever had in Boston and believe me I don’t give positive reviews so easily! I had burgers from the best and most expensive restaurants in the city but lincoln burger is the best so far.
You should definitely order the starter goat cheese with fig marmalade. Yummy.
Not very excited with the cocktails but the service was excellent and helpful.
I will definitely go back again
It was a special occasion for a graduation and it was specified on the reservation but our server did not mention it. Other places offer a dessert as a complimentary item for the special occasion.
Good food but expect slow service.
Great food and atmosphere. The Friday test kitchen brunch had lots of interesting dishes, which all sounded delicious. One of our favorite stops on our trip to Boston
Came to Lincoln Tavern for my friend's 21st and we could not have picked a better spot! Great food, great drink menu, and completely worth the 45 minute uber ride over. We will definitely be coming back!
Food was great.
Very noisy place...more a bar then a restaurant.
Parking is a challenge; be prepared to wait even with a reservation. Reasonably priced good food. Best suited for millennials who enjoy the bar scene.
Excellent service and the food was delicious. Highly recommend the Brussels sprouts and shrimp taco apps and the hangar steak. Brownie sundae topped off the meal.
Lincoln as always is packed with early twenty somethings looking to booze it up after work. Wiener Wednesday special was the ranchero dog which was awesome. The food at lincoln is consistently late. Draw back is the crowd and sub par service.
While the noise level kept us from always hearing each other, the food, service, overall happiness of the crowd and the fact that it was the night post Boston Marathon - LTandR hit the spot! Great entrees, reasonably priced, awesome 6 person booth with enough room for all 6 of us. We enjoyed the evening very much. A bar is gonna be loud, so we adjusted! Thank you!
