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.
This place BUMPS at 11am on a Sunday - reservations are a must. Food took a little longer than expected to come out but we enjoyed sitting by the open front window people watching and service was fine otherwise. Meals were good - crispy hash browns and biscuits were standouts.
The Lincoln Tavern never disappoints! The menu always has something to offer for every type of diner and every item on the menu tastes GREAT. We started with the evening's special appetizer--a tasty tuna delight! The Chorizo Mussels were absolutely delicious and were served with large pieces of bread to dip into the amazing broth!
Lincoln Tavern never disappoints! Fun, vibrant atmosphere and never a bad meal!! Highly recommended for brunch (any day of the week!), great cocktails and fun atmosphere!
Really yummy brunch. They do test kitchen on Fridays where they sample new items on their menu and it was delicious
Great drinks and food portions
Food was good overall, but the mushroom pizza was a little greasy. I would opt for the sausage pizza next time. We also had brussels sprouts for an appetizer which were great. Drinks were also good, not too strong with good flavor.
Love this place. But waited 30 minutes to be seated even WITH a reservation
Fabulous meal - loves every moment of it
A southie staple. Got drinks and food here with a friend and his gf. Would always recommend this place, but you should have a reservation if it's a weekend!
Family in town and had to take them to Lincoln!
A little loud - hard to hear your friends. Best ceaser salad in Boston!!!
Crowded and noisy, but to be expected on a Friday night. Drinks were almost too strong and took quite awhile to arrive, but food was delicious!
Brunch test kitchen had a fun and refreshing menu with great original dishes
Tacos were flat and the steak avocado salad was bland. Goat cheese dip was great! Service was okay could have been more attentive.
Brunch is amazing! The food is incredible and the wait staff are awesome!
They went above and beyond for us! So generous and so unbelievably kind!
Everyone here always takes such great care of my family and me. We’ve never had a bad experience and we’ve been coming since they opened. It’s one of our favorite places to go in all of Boston. Chelsea, Bridget, Alexis, Lexie, Kayla, Pat, Cara, Reilly, Shandon and so many more are like family to us.
The brunch test kitchen was amazing.. very creative meals that may sound weird but are in fact delicious. The drinks are amazing as well. Casual vibe with big windows, great on a beautiful day.
We tried multiple dishes and all were great. Avocado toast is a must.
AMAZING. Greatest restaurant in south Boston
Great service, fast food, tasty food, and reasonable prices. It does get busy quickly though so reservations are a must.
Great food, awesome drinks. Slightly loud atmosphere
Loud loud loud
Food very good
Lincoln consistently delivers amazing food and service!
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.
Easter branch, very nice waitress
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
