Jacob Wirth

We will be at the Sheraton in October and would like to go to Jacob Wirth restaurant.

I have read that the sing a long is fun.

Do I need a reservation for three people and how far is it from the Sheraton. Can we walk or what is the best way to get there.

It would be a pretty long walk, but it's doable. Your looking at 30 minutes or so?

You can also hop on the T at Prudential and take it inbound to Boylston. Then walk a block down Tremont, take a left of Stuart and Jacob Wirth will be down on the left. That should take you all of 15 minutes.

Go for the drinks, but I'd eat somewhere else first.

Just looked this up on WalkBoston to give you accurate times.

The walk from the Sheraton to Jacob Wirth is 1.2 miles and takes the average person 26 minutes. Nice, easy walk by taking Huntington Ave to Stuart and straight all the way.

Taking the T is 12 minutes - 4 minutes walk to the Pru T station, 4 minutes on the T to Boylston station, and 4 minutes walk from there to Jacob Wirth. $2 per person, each way.

Taking a cab will cost you around $12 each way with tip.

Finally, beb, you know that the sing-a-long is Friday nights only from 8-12? Just making sure. And reservations are only accepted for parties of 6 or more.

The draft German beers are great at Jakey's, but the food is dreadful. I had the greasiest, soggiest wiener schnitzel EVAH last time I was there.

It's an easy walk down Boylston Street from the Sheraton, about 30 minutes as others have said, and you get to window shop in all the stores and shops along the way. Take a cab only if you really don't enjoy walking, or the weather stinks.

I love the sauerbraten at Jacob Wirth. Never had anything I didn't like there.

Is it possible to hail a cab right outside Jacob Wirth?

If you have no luck outside the restaurant, just walk over to the new W Hotel (the glass building on the corner).

The food at Jacob Wirth is typical German - American food. It's good enough for my German husband.
