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.

The entire restaurant is a long bar. Even in the corner the noise level is so loud you can’t hear yourself talk. Seems like a place to go socialize with a large group of people or a place to go meet people. Food was really good. They have some booths lining one side of the restaurant but said they only give them to larger parties, even though we went at 7:30 on a Sunday night and many of those booths sat empty. With us having only two they seated us right in the thick of the bar area. So if you plan to go on a date, don’t go here if you want to actually communicate with each other. Maybe order take-out to get the good food.
I cannot imagine how anyone thinks this is a great place. The food is OK but nothing special, service is good and friendly, BUT the place is uncomfortably loud -not energetic as specified in the review categories. We had to leave. Lots of young people meeting other young people in good spirits but the noise in this very live space is extremely uncomfortable.
food amazing everything was great the only part id say was our server was taking a little long we went for brunch we sat at 2:30 and when we were ready to order it was 3:06 and we couldnt order brunch any vause it ends at 3pm , But she got us the last french toasts (my favoriteeeeeee especially there maple peacan syrup) so it worked out well ! i always recommended for brunch ! if you want a quieter spot deff as for something near the windows
My friends and I are avid brunch goers. Last Saturday was our first Lincoln tavern visit. It’s crowded and noisy, which is not ideal for Saturday family brunch with kids, but it’s great for a group of friends.
The short rib poutine is delicious. It says that it’s an appetizer on the menu, but rest assured it can be eaten as a main course as it is a decent portion of goodness.
Delicious food, great cocktails, wonderful service, and amazing ambiance!
Had a great breakfast with my daughter. Service was great, food was excellent. We will return.
Wonderful experience from the food and waitress super accommodating I wanted to taste everything
LOVE this spot. Excellent for brunch and sporting events!
Great experience! We had Brittany as our waitress and it couldn't have been any better.
Had pizzas salads and drinks. All very good, pizzas quite flavorful. Excellent service. We sat in back room which was quieter.
Waitress was attentive however food took a very long time.
Made reservations for a Saturday night. Arrived on time and was promptly seated. We had a fabulous waitress I wish I got her name. She was attentive and pleasant. Got appetizers of Brussel Sprouts, Wings and Dumplings. Good portion sizes. The main courses we chose were Scallops, Hanger Steak, and Pork Chops. No one was disappointed. The drinks all had a good pour. Nothing skimpy. We all thought it was a fantastic value. Make reservations or you will be in for a long wait just to get in the door.
Food was great but it was so loud we could barely hear each other
Food was great, but it is very noisy if you are trying to talk with your party.
Our server was the greatest! Incredibly personable. The food was top notch.
Atmosphere was fun. I would suggest you request a table away from the door on colder days. I had eggs benedict and they cooled quickly because of the cold air coming across the table each time the door was opened. I would definitely come back, I would just ask for a different table.
We enjoyed our stay thank you!
Great meal! Waitress was very nice
Everything is great except the acoustics; depending on where you're seated, even a sparsely populated crowd can make it difficult to hear. Again though, great place to grab a bite!
I went to Lincoln Tavern for Saturday Brunch. I loved the atmosphere. The ONLY bad thing is parking. The closest one besides the parking lot directly across from it (which isn't the restaurant's parking it just general parking) is a 15 minute walk away.
I'm really grateful the hostess was nice enough to let my friend and I push our reservation out since my friend was painfully late so we missed our initial reservation! It made our night we were still able to eat there, and at a reasonable hour too!
I like the vibe at Lincoln, but it seems that the food has gone downhill. I had the fattiest steak of my life while eating there on 03/05. I’d say about 60% of the cut was fat that I had to cut off of my $28 steak. Really disappointing. Still good service and a fun vibe, but probably won’t eat there anymore.
Way too noisy
Our go to neighborhood place. Loud, but food is good. Always full. Place is popping.
Great food and atmosphere. Very noisy. Service was pleasant.
Saturday dinner at 7pm: Great food, fun atmosphere, but very very loud and the music kept getting louder even as early as 9pm.
The ambiance was great per usual. Our server was very attentive and quick even though it was busy. Great brunch food!
Was very impressed with the food. It was very noisy but we had a late dinner.
Overall solid meal. Well prepared salmon bowl and hanger steak and the burgers were perfect. Definitely recommend the calamari. We’ll be back the next time we’re in Boston.
The food was delicious and reasonably priced. Service was excellent even though the place was packed. Noise level was very loud, hard to hear ourselves talking but we had a booth near the bar area. I will go back.
Had Brunch at Lincoln on a Monday. I definitely think their weekend brunch is better but regardless enjoyed My meal and the company.
We do brunch here often - amazing drinks and great menu choices! The short rib poutine with a fried egg on top is out of this world!
Lincoln brunch is delicious. A little better and more special that a diner. A Southie got spot for sure
I've been wanting to go to this restaurant for a while and I was not disappointed. Great staff, fun atmosphere and most importantly, the food was delicious. We went on Friday and the offered a Test Kitchen menu and it was great to try different items.
Drinks were garbage unless you get the bubbly bucket. Food was mediocre and ambience was good until the wave of college kids come around 1pm, which make the noise level go way up. Server didn’t seem to care about our table, I wouldn’t want to come back.
Although there was an issue with the heat and the bathrooms were extremely cold, it was an enjoyable experience with very good food and a great atmosphere.
Great service and delicious food. Nice ambiance and nice that they have two bars. Will go back!
We made reservations for dinner at 8:15 pm and found the atmosphere to be an active bar scene with loud music which didn't allow us to talk with our guests. The food was barely passable so maybe we just ordered wrong e.g. soggy pizza, coconut shrimp. So, our lesson learned - don't go on a weekend night if you expect to have an enjoyable dinner with friends. The service was good.
Very loud, very young crowd.
Cool place to eat, despite it being very loud. Service and food were both excellent.
