Its been awhile since we visited The Abbey, but just being there is a pleasure.. We found the food to be excellent, the waitress was nice, but not over-bearing...she checked on us a couple of times and refreshed our drinks. We both had steaks, cooked just right! A little noisy, but that's to be expected when you have a full... More

In town on business this was recommended to me. Very glad I went, nice quaint inside, some good size tv'is around bar, and quiet tables for families or couples. I had chicken Madeira which was large fresh and tasty. I also had side of asparagus. I skipped salad and had French onion soup. Nice large crock but a little lacking... More

My husband and I went with my in laws the night after Christmas for dinner. As we expected, the place was packed! But we only waited about 20 mins for a table and enjoyed drinks at the bar while we waited. We got an awesome seat in a booth in the back which was quieter so we could talk easily.... More

My brother and I went here for Thanksgiving dinner and so glad we did! The Abbey was described to me as a college hangout. I don't quite see it. It's near Quincy Univ but it's definitely not a college dive. The restaurant provided all who ordered a PLATEFUL of food! A large quantity of turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, dressing, green... More

Awesome service. Neat pub atmosphere. Interesting menu. Very good food. We will be back. This restaurant is behind Walgreens just off Broadway. Never noticed it before. The owners also own Kelly's in Quincy. Another good restaurant.

The chicken nachos are great! This place is a Quincy staple and a must for any visitor. I would also recommend the hot lips, and the horseshoe.
