Though France gifted the Statue of Liberty and Russia gave its Mikhail Gorbachev mannequin, America is still longing to have the mighty pillars of bratwurst of Germany’s Brandenburg Gate. Get a rare taste of Germany’s most delicious landmark with today’s Groupon to Jacob Wirth, located on Stuart Street just south of the Common. Choose between the following options:

  • For $7, you get $15 worth of German lunch fare.
  • For $17, you get a four-course German tasting menu (a $34.95 value).

Since 1868, Jacob Wirth has offered the tastes of Germany in downtown Boston, blending authentic German eats with traditional American entrees in a festive European atmosphere. Peruse the lunch menu to find German favorites such as wiener schnitzel—breaded veal cutlet served over spätzle with a light butter sauce ($12.95)—or sauerbraten––sweet 'n' sour braised beef over dill spätzle with gingersnap gravy and red cabbage ($12.95). Diners looking to improve their American accents can order pub grub such as beer battered fish 'n' chips ($13.95) or barbecue steak tips ($13.95). Lunchtime lasts from 11:30 a.m. until 4 p.m., and features hearty specials such as Lionel's famous fishcakes with mac 'n' cheese, and topped with bittersweet red beer sauce ($7.25) to assuage any mid-day cravings or stave off the night hungries.

Jake's offers a four-course German tasting menu ($34.95), with an engaging smorgasbord of Deutschland’s finest fare and sips. Courses include potato pancakes with cinnamon sour cream, breaded veal cutlet wiener schnitzels, choice wursts, and chocolate cheesecake. The tasting menu is available during all hours, perfect for mid-day decadence or drawing out evening anecdotes into four distinct culinary chapters.

On Fridays from 8 p.m. until midnight, Jacob Wirth hosts pianist Mel Stiller, a Boston mainstay whose sing-a-long show has attendees humming and shouting along to hits such as “Build Me Up Buttercup” and “Folsom Prison Blues.” And Jacob Wirth’s location within the theater district makes it a premiere spot for a preshow dinner before heading off to watch Mamma Mia! or Mary Poppins 2: Spoonful of Revenge.


Zagat reviewers give the food at Jacob Wirth a rating of "good to very good" and nearly 260 Yelpers give it a 3.5-star average. TripAdvisors give it an average of four owl-eyes.

  • Solid German and comfort food fare in a very authentic setting. It is a must try establishment for any visitor to Boston, and for local regulars it's a bit like home. – BostonsCookin101, Zagat

Jacob Wirth

A medley of traditional American cuisine and German tastes has brightened Jacob Wirth, the second oldest restaurant in Boston, since 1868. The kitchen prepares a smattering of traditional offerings, such as paper-thin-sliced pastrami piled high between slabs of sourdough bread, and five types of wursts crowned with red cabbage or sauerkraut. Surrounded by traditional steins and thirsty gnomes, barkeeps pour an extensive selection of imported and domestic beer from tap and bottles.

On Friday evenings, Jacob Wirth hosts pianist Mel Stiller, a Boston mainstay whose sing-along show has attendees humming and shouting along to hits such as “Build Me Up Buttercup” and “Folsom Prison Blues.” Jacob Wirth’s location within the Theater District makes it a premier spot for a preshow dinner before heading off to watch Mary Poppins 2: Spoonful of Revenge.
