Great food with an impressive beer menu.

Got here just before the kitchen closed, but no worries they were happy to see us and proceeded to serve us some good food with a big smile. Easy to find and good parking all around. The bottled beer list is great and they also have about 15 international tap beers so you really can't go wrong. The... read more

The Abbey has a pub atmosphere. It features a large range of beers on tap, a satisfying array of pub-appropriate foods, and many TVs with sports events arrayed for easy viewing from almost any seat. Seating is either at the bar or at tables arranged along a banquette that extends the length of the place; the tables can be separated... More

This is your usual kind of Pub place which is more for the younger crowd. Only had an appetizer and drink. Was very loud with a lot of townies. Nice atmosphere but not for me.

The food at the Abbey is amazing! Our group had everything from ahi poke, beef, fish to pizza; every single dish was fabulous! There is something for every palette or dietary need and we understand they will accommodate this, if necessary. The staff was very courteous & professional from the phone call to make reservations and every contact forward from... More

The Abbey is a regular stop for us as we live near the Abbey. The staff is great and when I take people that are new to The Abbey, I tell them that there are no bad items on the menu. Favorites are the French Dip, Asian Nachos, anything from the pizza oven, Black and Blue Salmon burger. Making myself... More

Ok, let's face it: In-n-Out has the best fast food burger in CA; but for Seal Beach and surrounding cities it's The Abbey. Juicy, cooked to perfection, plus the bun is not hard or chewy. Excellent proprietary bbq sauce and shoestring fries that were excellent. Also, this place has one of the largest selections of Belgian beers you'll every find... More

Great beer selection, excellent burgers and French Dip sandwiches, what's not to like? Anywhere that is obviously patronised by locals has a lot going for it and the Abbey was no exception. We stopped in Seal Beach by chance on the way back from Palm Springs and came here on a recommendation. Nice old fashioned bar (but in a good... More

Lovely lunch with great beer and wine choices. Had an excellent burger, washed down with a couple of glasses of Napa Pinot Grigio. Very food service and a nice cool relaxing interior only a few minutes walk from the beach and pier. This is a good place to relax for an hour or two. Would definitely go back and highly... More

Great selection of micro-brews, if a little on the pricey side ($7.25 for the one I selected, though prices varied). Sit at the bar and watch the cook in his open kitchen. Friendly staff. Great thin crust, wood fired pizzas. Lots of other options. Hi-end casual.
