American
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.

    I am sure it is a great bar. It is not a restaurant, at least not at 7 o’clock on a Saturday night. The bar crowd overwhelmed the few tables, the noise was deafening inside and out. Again a great sight. I’m sure for hanging out and watching the game, but that’s not what it appeared to be on the website or when we made the reservation. We were just looking for dinner.

    We went for brunch - outstanding. Bloody Mary nice and spicy. I ordered eggs, they had perfectly cooked mushrooms, green onions and cheese. Side of bacon came with 6 thick slices, evenly cooked and crispy. Highly recommend, worth an Uber!

    I was disappointed as my salad had no dressing or flavor. The loaded potato was just okay and the wings were decent. The shrimp cocktail had really small shrimp that wasn't great either. I have been dying to try but was disappointed and won't go back.

    I’m a server at a sister restaurant & was very surprised the policy for having hair down was so relaxed. We constantly had to ask, find or wait for our server. She wasn’t taught to constant show her presence. My guest & I are older so I shocked when the led us to stainless steel stool, great for the young crowd but not with our backs!

    We ordered the mudslides for drink. They were very good. The mac and cheese was delicious. I order the Cuban sandwich and it was very tasty. My husband order the ribeye and it was over cooked and very chewy. He said it was the worse meat he ever had. My meal was good, stay away from the ribeye. It took about 30-35 minutes to get our food and they were not very busy when we got there.

    Came to Boston for pleasure and Lincoln Tavern came through! The food was delicious - we came for brunch and got the chronic bacon, BLTC, and bagel sandwich. Highly recommend this place for the food and chill ambiance (I’m sure the place can get crazy at night if a game is on or something). Wasn’t too packed when we got there (a Friday around 10am, and by 11am they were getting full with a few tables still open. Thanks to Adrian for taking great care of us!
