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.

    Fabulous brunch at Lincoln Kitchen and Tavern. Lots of great choices, large portions and the food was amazing, from the blueberry bread to the omlets and hashbrowns. Cool vibe and nice service. Definitely recommend!

    Came here for my birthday for the dollar oysters with my family; we also ordered a pizza and a slice of their lemon cheesecake, and I gotta say: everything was delicious!! The mushroom pizza had an excellent crust, I’m the type to usually skip the crust, but it was good enough to finish every bite! The oysters tasted fresh and the red wine (?) sauce was DELICIOUS, and the cheesecake had a nice silky consistency! It was a little on the loud side inside, but otherwise I couldn’t ask for a better birthday meal: I can’t wait to come back!!

    Their brunch is honestly one of the best I've ever had. You can't go wrong with any choice - sweet or savory but the French Toast they offer is so darn good. We'll definitely be back for more

    This is probably one of the worst place I’ve ever been to. The food and drinks were awful!!! We ordered the truffle fries and asked for mayo with and never got it.The Brussels were undercooked and flavorless, the scallops were bland so was the short rib & Mac. Who thought it was a good idea to add peas to truffle Mac and cheese? The drinks were watered down and barely had any alcohol. After returning my first drink, I didn’t want to burden the server as it was a busy night but if that wasn’t the case I would’ve returned my second drink as well. Mediocre food and terrible drinks. Lastly, this place is filled with drunk idiots. People are screaming at the top of their lungs and acting a fool. I understand it’s a tavern but this was over the top. Someone threw a lemon at my table, which ended up hitting me on my shoulder. My friend was a little late but they had her sit in line for 40+ minutes even though we had a table already so we had to wait until she got in to order. $156 down the drain for an awful experience. Never again!

    Waitress did not come check on our table but made many visits to the table of men next to us. She was extremely rude and rolled her eyes when we asked for dessert to go and our check. Salty food and watered down expensive drinks.

    Decided to brunch here with a friend on a quiet Monday afternoon and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The food was delicious and the service was fast but the staff was hard to reach at times. Nonetheless, I highly recommend this place I will be back.

    I saw this place on instagram & the food looked so good, I just had to take my bf here for his bday (he loves breakfast). The amount of food that we got for the amount paid was totally worth it. The flavors were DIVINE. We ordered the loaded hashbrowns, thickly cut french toast, and the huevos rancheros. BEST BREAKFAST I'VE HAD IN A LONG TIME and I come from a hispanic family. I'm literally craving to go there again as I am writing this. Lincoln Tavern, ur doing the Lord's work by serving heavenly food lol. Sidenote: sometimes parking can be a hassle, nothing to really worry about, it's Boston, what do you expect loll

    They tried to steal my wallet. I called and asked if they found a wallet, they said no. I went back and asked ti hostess if they found a wallet, she rummaged around the drawers and said now. I went to look around the table we were sitting at and when I couldn’t find it, on my way back past the front desk I saw my wallet sitting right in top in the drawer tue hostess had just looked in and told me there was no wallet in there. TWO people lied to me about not finding the wallet. There was a significant amount of cash in there, I supposed that was what they were after….

    We arrived at 8:50pm our food arrived at 10pm. This is unacceptable. Table next to us who arrived after us got their food before us. And even we asked our waitress about this, she gave us the regular “ we are busy” answer however if so busy why the two tables next to us who ordered pizza like is got served before us? I am sorry but we will never visit you again and We will put our review on google.

    The meal itself was good. We were not real hungry so decided to share. We had the Fried Chicken Dinner and asked if we could do 2 side Caesar salads. Waitress said for a burger but not a meal... made no sense so we ordered a full Caesar salad(excellent) to share first. We asked if Chicken was boneless and waitress said yes but when it came it wasn’t. I asked a few mins after ordering to get the salad first and she said no, we didn’t specify that when ordering and it was said with a definite attitude. A good waitress would have asked. Been on a road trip for 15 days and this was the worst waitress we’ve had in a long time. Too bad because it was a nice place and good food.

    I was visiting Boston for a conference and this was an easy walk from the convention center. It did not disappoint. The hostess was nice and offered me my choice of not just inside or outside but near the open garage door or not. I was wearing a mask so she suggested since I didn’t want to sit outside to be near the open garage door for a little bit of a breeze and fresh air while still being inside. It was a little loud but it was a nice loud with good music that I wished I could’ve just chilled there all night and just let the energy of the place sink in. My server was also great and checked in on me as I got my drink and food but not so much that it became annoying. I got the wings which were great and crispy. Only thing I didn’t like is that it’s only one flavor of wings - spicy. If you don’t like any kind of spicy-ness so not get these. Maybe next time I can ask for light spice? Cause I still felt the burn on my lips for a while after even when I had the leftovers! I also got margarita pizza and it was the perfect size for just me so that I could have a few slices now and a few later. I will definitely be back no matter where we are in Boston!
