The beer selection here is amazing. Some staples that are there every time, some that come and go and give you a chance to taste something new. Great burgers. My wife is vegetarian and unlike most burger and beer places, Back Abbey has a really good veggie burger that she loves. Only problem is that it is so popular you... More

Great french fries too. It's a lively place and the service is good. This restaurant does a good business and sometimes I've thought it would take forever to get in and get the food but I've never had to wait more that 10 minutes or so.

Casual dining with an excellent beer selection. We sat at the bar for lunch. The food was very good and the service was very attentive and answered all of our questions concerning the menu. We will be returning

The Back Abbey is a must whenever your in Claremont. The burgers a unique and delicious. The fries are made in duck fat and taste like no fries you've ever had. Also the beer. So many great beers from all over the world. This is setup like a pub so it can be loud and crowded.

We were up in the Claremont area looking at colleges so stopped in for a bite to eat. It's a funky little restaurant in downtown Claremont. My son and I both had the man salad and we both really enjoyed it. The problem is, as a growing boy, it wasn't enough food for him, so we had to order him... More

Don't get me wrong, the good is perfectly delightful. The problem is, it's too trendy so you end up waiting for quite a while and it's not so good that the wait is justified. If you are into a super hipster scene though and don't mind a wait (w/ no waiting area) then knock yourself out!

This is a fun place for a great sandwich, with craft beers aplenty. Lively, upbeat, noisy ambience, always crowded, even with outside seating.
