Jacob Wirth Restaurant Review

: This cavernous German bierhaus has been a staple in Boston since 1868. Try the German tasting menu with its potato pancakes, wiener schnitzel and bratwurst, or order off the main menu, which features favorites like knockwurst, schnitzel and sauerkraut. You’ll also find traditional pub fare given a modern twist, such as beer-battered mozzarella stix; a bucket of soft baked pretzels; and sliders with Swiss cheese, sauerkraut and red cabbage. The restaurant is a local legend less for its serviceable culinary repertoire and more for its Friday night piano sing-alongs, fueled by brews both commercial and craft, poured by the relatively well-priced pint, pitcher or bottle at the original mahogany bar.
