This place is just bad. I ordered the shepards pie...it just wasn't appetizing, but not unpalatable. My husbands chicken was over cooked and he said he could tell the chicken wasn't fresh. His vegetables were mushy and the capers were burnt. The beer tasted like the taps haven't been cleaned in a while. We cook better food at home so why pay to eat bad food? Nothing on the menu really looked good...it all just seemed blah. The waitress was really nice and comped my meal because i said it was alright. My husband was nice and said the food was good but it definitely was not good. I'm really not sure how this place has gotten good reviews...we will not be returning. Ever.
Pumpkin Risotto – My friends and I went to dinner and a few drinks last night the place was great. I had the pumpkin risotto what a great treat. I couldn't get enough of it. Waitress was wonderful, chef came out to visit to see how our meal was, and cocktails were superb. Try this place it is great.
highly recomended – My friends and I had a wonderful experience at Amrheins the other night. Our server was friendly and very helpful. The pan seared scallops were the best I've ever had. The atmosphere was fun and the deserts were to die for. We'll be back for sure!
Chef should be ashamed of himself! – my wife and I met up with some friends last sunday, and we were greeted with a very attentive and friendly waitress. my friends order was a little tricky, however, the waitress took everything down, and went over it again. When our food was delivered, it was practically the opposite of how she had asked for it. Our waitress appologized, and then chef came out, and walked away from us, when we told him how unhappy we were with the meal. When the bill came, they had not even taken one drink off, after we had clearly stated how unhappy we were with the meal. When asked to speak with the chef again, he blew up in our faces, told us that "sorry mistakes happen" then walked away from us. the poor waitress' looked horrified, and kept apologizing for him. This sad pathetic little man should not even work at burger king. UNBELIEVABLE!
Why I love Amrhein's.... – I go to Amrhein's 3 times a week because the service and delicious food keep me coming back for more. With delicious appetizers, entrees and desserts to choose from at reasonable prices, you can't beat it. The friendly atmosphere with big screen TVs, great service,awesome music,a full bar, and their great martini list are always a treat for me during the week and on the weekends. If you are looking for a good restaurant to feel comfortable at and enjoy yourself, I highly reccomend Amrhein's in South Boston.
Brunch is amazing – I am in Amrheins it least three times a week. Take the family to Brunch almost every sunday and never disappointed. It is well worth the money! It is a great place to take the wife out to eat and with friends for drinks. Service was top of the line. Can't wait till the patio opens up again!
Surprised they didn't try the magic check game – Stickly a neighborhood joint from asking around. Beware if they think you are a tourist. Ordered a rum and pineapple, got water downed pineapple juice that tasted like butterscotch. Entree was lobster pie that sounded good but turned out to be small pieces of lobster sitting ontop of some kind of gluey uncooked dough in the bottom of the dish. The dish arrived at the table unfinished.
Asked for the manager. The server returned from the kitchen and produced his card and told us we would have to call him???
Amazing in every way!!! – I go to Amrheins at least 2-3 times a week. The Sunday Brunch is out of this world! There are so many different options to choose from. The service is always top notch! I've been in the industry for many years now - so I am very picky. I absolutely LOVE the chicken bella bocca (on the dinner menu) and all the salads and sandwiches served at lunch are sooo gooood! I've also been to Amrheins for a few different private events and they always do an outstanding job with everything.
I would definitely recomment Amrheins to anyone - for any occassion!
head up to east broadway....this is not worth stopping for – Stopped in on Thursday night (10/9/08) at 6.30pm to meet my wife for dinner after work.
Knew it was a mistake as soon as I walked in, table was dirty and overall it looked like an cheap bar-room
I decided to have the meat loaf special ($18.00) not cheap but price is never a consideration, if the food is good, wife opted for risotto.
Onion rings as a starter was not too bad..7 out of 10.
Main course of risotto was appetising and was served hot....6 out of 10
Meat loaf was a disaster and served luke warm with cold french fries and green substance described as peppers? One bite was enough.....1 out of 10.
Waitress returned after my wife finished her risotto to inquire how the food was..we expressed our disappointment and after informing the "chef", we were told he was busy but the next time we were in, we could have a complimentary dessert........I don't think so!!!!
Impressed – I went to Amrheins for the first time on saturday afternoon with a larger group of people that have been before. The food was excellent!! I had the lobster pie and the rasberry goat cheese salad. We all enjoyed our food very much. I was also very impressed with the service we recieved. Server Melissa did a great job and should be praised for service to us. I am new to the area and will be coming back for dinner soon!
