Do not hesitate one moment to have one of the best meals of your life here. Seriously. I grew up in the restaurant business and my family still owns establishments. We are not easily pleased. Also, being a local we know what's worth it and what is not. The service is fantastic!! Chef Padilla knows how to create and prepare... More

The atmosphere reveals a friendly local meeting place with a wide assortment of beer and wine selections. The food is creatively prepared along with a reasonable price, making the Abbey one of our weekly outings.

We've been to the Abbey two times and both times have had an excellent meal, great service,in a fun atmosphere. The wonton nachos are to die for! We had the pesto pizza so yummy! A great selection of beer and wine. The hamburgers and chicken sandwiches accompanied by crisp thin french fries were delicious!

Stopped here the night before our cruise to Hawaii. What a great place to eat. Excellent food and beer selection. After our 15 day cruise we thought the food here was just as good if not better than most meals on the ship. Next time we are in town this will be a must visit.

Been coming here on and off for about 10 years. Located on Main St near PCH in cozy seal beach. Nice TV's to watch the game but it doesn't have a loud sports bar feeling. Some regulars but anybody can come and feel welcome. New bartender is great and really knows his beer. Pizza is made in a wood fired... More

My girlfriend and I meet twice a year to celebrate each other's birthdays. We often meet in Seal Beach. I wanted to try a new restaurant and used Trip Advisors for help in deciding where to go. The reviews for Abbey sold me and what a fabulous experience we had. We were greeted by Biz, our waitress. I joked with... More

Initially came here because I bought a Living Social or Groupon deal. Ever since then, I probably go a couple times a month. The staff are awesome, the food is delicious (especially the popular items marked with an asteriks on their menu), lots of beer on tap, and a relaxing place to hang out. Everyday they have different specials e.g.... More

Seal Beach's the Abbey Restaurant is in a modest location 3 blocks from the Pier. Having to compete on Main Street, where it seems like every other building houses a reataurant, this little gem holds its own, and more. the Abbey has great lunches, very good dinners and a terrific bar. You will find the servers willing to help you... More
