  • schubert_d reviewI went to J.W. for enjoying good German food in an atmosphere you will find in lots of little restaurants in Germany. Unfortunately there was no nice atmosphere. It feels more like in a food court - it was loud - it has just one big room which was arranged without love. Most dissappointing was the food. German dishes were rare on the menu and Sauerbraten was out this day. Instead I had a plate with German sausages and german potato salad. I got sausages and potato salad I never ate in Germany before. This had nothing to do with original German food. My wife had a Schnitzel which was cold and was rewarmed for her when we complained. For a German restauarant you would also expect German beer on the menu. They have very few german beers. Most of the beers are local. If you want to enjoy German food definetely choose another place.

  • Alexandros PlexidasGood selection of beers and nice place to watch a game with friends and grab a bite. However very poor in healthy options.

    55555 by Alexandros Plexidas

    55555 by Rob J

  • Qiyou eThe best schnitzels in Boston. Try the German mixed grill and sausage & sauerkraut balls with hundreds of German beers too.

    55555 by Qiyou e

    55555 by Greg E

  • PatriciaTHE most pathetic excuse for a pretzel. Skip this spot and head to Harpoon Brewery for beer & a pretzel instead.

  • Niels B.Don't go here for the food - it is as far from German food as Your local Chinese take-out is original Chinese cuisine. Tried the jäger schnitzel and the sauerbraten - both mediocre.

    55555 by Niels B.

  • KinaLove the fried chicken blt. The warm chipotle turkey sandwich is amazing too. For beer get the speak easy baby daddy session IPA or the Jake's house Lager.

  • UntappdThe best place to spend a night around Christmas time drinking beer and singing Christmas carols. During the non-holiday season, the German beer selection is best in Boston. Pair it with a braut.

    55555 by Untappd
