Home to the oldest hand-carved bar in all of America (the building was established in 1890), Amrheins also had the first draft beer pump (trendsetters!). You can still stop by to watch a game with your friends, enjoy the historic surroundings, and order some comfort food (lobster mac and cheese) and a beer.
Southie has undergone some seriously massive changes over the past few decades (we’re looking at you, Seaport), but one venue in particular has remained largely frozen in time. Located on West Broadway, local favorite Amrheins made its grand debut in 1890, serving up classic favorites like Parmesan Haddock, Corned Beef Hash, and, of course, New England Clam Chowder. Dinnertime visitors should be sure to grab a seat at the bar—Boston’s oldest hand-carved bar, to be precise—for some local craft beer, while early risers can head in for some decadent breakfast fare, with Peanut Butter-Stuffed French Toast, pillowy Buttermilk Pancakes, and savory Eggs Benedict all gracing the menu.
