Breaking Southie Restaurant News: Amrheins Sale Under Agreement

We knew it was coming.  Back in August we reported that the legendary landmark restaurant Amrheins was on the market.  Well, it appears it is under agreement for $18 million.

According to the website The Real Reporter, the half-acre site at 80 West Broadway is under agreement with City Point Capital.

CPC, the Fort Point real estate group is no stranger to Southie having constructed lots of new projects including: 232 Old Colony Ave – a five-story condo building plus ground floor restaurant, a 14-story, 159-room boutique hotel at 6 West Broadway across from Broadway Station and 14 West Broadway, the 10-story building featuring 49 residential condominiums and 6,000 sf of commercial space.

So it seems it’s the end of era for the the oldest bar and restaurant in South Boston.   Hurry up and get your lobster pie in before Amrheins officially closes!

  1. Progress!!!! No hate towards Amrheins and it’s history, but everything eventually needs to change. This parcel being one that was well overdue. It’s a great day for South Bostonians, the owners of Amrheins & CPC.

  2. I wish the family that is selling the very best.
    Ironically enough, I was up from Florida with my wife for Christmas and I was showing her the monumental changes that have taken place in the Sacred neighborhood we met in 18 yrs ago. As we were cruising around after our L st dinah’s Turkey tips, she said “Well at least we still have the diner and Ahmreins!”
    Selfishly I hate to see such an iconic place be sold, but I am so happy for the sellers. They are a wonderful family that deserve the best!

    • Amrhein’s has been trash since their old chef left and they decided to buy lower quality food. Was one of my favorite spots when I moved to Southie 12 years ago, but it’s steadily gone downhill.

  3. SO SAD TO SEE IT GO.GREAT FOOD AND GOOD TIMES WE HAD THERE..SEEING THE OLD POLITICIANS AND TV NEWS GUYS THERE ALSO.LOBSTER PIE AND TURKEY DINNERS WERE THE BEST EVER.SOMEONE PLEASE GET THEIR RECIPE FOR THE LOBSTER PIE,IT WAS TO DIE FOR. .

  4. Fond memories there. Remember sitting in front of the massive tv on the back wall watching Obama speak after the marathon bombings.

  5. You can’t sell your house on Marine Road for $2 million and bitch about Amhrines closing. Southie people priced their own kids out of the neighborhood. I don’t blame them for grabbing the cash but you can’t say sad after YOU did it.

  6. Sad! A restaurant with parking…and character! Yummy comfort food and a burger a couldn’t resist when pregnant with twins.

  7. It is so sad to see it go. It is a landmark. It well be Torn down and up another LEGO land will. Take it place. Why Southie they are driving the natives out . And there some pretty houses here but they really don’t care it’s the money. They can make . Can’t they stop?. They are ruining South Boston . George Washington saved this town by driving the British out. Beacon Hill isn’t touched why us.

  8. I hope they keep the facade. They can preserve the old and modernize especially when the old is well worth preserving.
