I came with my husbands family for his birthday and we had an amazing meal! We got the mushroom pizza and meatballs as an appetizer and loved the pizza so much we spontaneously asked for another one. Everyone loved their entrees (rigatoni bolognese and eggplant parm were standouts) and the service was excellent. Would recommend to anyone looking for a great celebration spot in Southie! More

I took my boyfriend air as a surprise for a special occasion we were celebrating. He loved it. We went for Sinatra Sunday and got to enjoy the show while we had dinner. The food was delicious. I was even invited on stage to sing a duet with Rick. It really made our night special. The Ron poster band is awesome. More

We had reservations for 10:30am brunch for for 9 people. We arrived a little after 10 not realizing they don’t open until 10:30am. They invited us in to warm up seeing it was January. They could not have been more gracious and accommodating. I highly recommend the Mimosa flight. Our waitress was wonderful making sure we had everything we needed. We have been to brunch here before and have always had a fantastic experience. More

We arrived at 5:30 on a Friday with three teenagers and luggage from the train. At that time restaurant had mainly 30 somethings at the bar. Lots of space in dining area. Very cool, well designed spot. Margaritas were tasty and potent. Dinner was super fast and very very good. Pulled pork sandwich was delish but leave off the jalapeños unless you love spicy. Asian glazed short ribs were outta site. Solid Cesar salad. Tamika was a great and attentive server. Highly recommend. The location is weird and in the middle of industrial area so we Ubered to the Element hotel nearby. More

We had a blast at Amrheins. The manager Mike Sheridan was so hospitable and our waiter was amazing as well! We got there at 8:30pm and didn't end up leaving until way after 10:30pm because we were enjoying ourselves far too much. We will definitely be back! More

Came here with my girls' part of our girls' weekend. They have a 90s hip hop brunch every 1st Sunday of the month and found that to be a bit disappointing as it was just 90s tunes playing with no other themes adding to it (like hiphop themed drinks/food, outfits etc.). If they do ramp that up it would definitely be another star!. Other than that the service was great, albeit our food did take some time to come out, BUT when it did WOW WOW WOW so good! My Good Morning Pizza was so big that I had to take some with me even AFTER I shared with BOTH of my girls (they kindly provided a plastic bag for me to make a portable cooler- to keep it refrigerated until I got to a fridge- with the ice from the ice bucket that held our champagne for our mimosas, which were great too!) . The food I sampled off their plates, the S'mores French Toast and the Chicken and Waffle Sandwich were also heavenly! And the bill was not bad at all for ordering our food plus splitting a table mimosa (which came out to be about 2 mimosas per person for 3 people) - a little less than $30 per person. Overall if you could just be a little patient for the food , it's a great place to come and eat and drink while bopping to some 90s hiphop jams :) More
