Deliciously off the beaten path. Wonderful food with no pretense.

This is the type of place you hear about by word of mouth. The current owners have been there for 12 years and many local folk are still just discovering it. It has a very relaxed atmosphere and a welcoming warmth I’m sure, even when the circular fireplace in the middle of the dining room is not... read more

We had passed this restaurant a number of times, but never stopped. We should have tried it. Nice ambiance, quiet, pleasant service, and very, very good food. My wife had Chicken Marsala, which was one of the nightly specials. I managed to steal a taste - great Marsala flavor and the chicken done perfectly. With garlic mashed and carrots, perfect... More

Based on excellent reviews I read in trip advisor my wife and I decided to try Abeel's restaurant. We were not disappointed. My wife had a dinner. It was excellent. Large and delicious. Because of good pizza reviews I decided to try the pizza and wing special. Both great. My wife tried my pizza and commented that it might be... More

This is a great place for a pizza, burger or a fancier full dinner meal. Great bar with an awesome bartender Mark! We have a lot of fun and Tony is an awesome Chef! You will enjoy everything about this place! Enjoy!!

Abeel's is like no other in the area. It's hidden away in Ballston Spa but what a find when you do. It's become our "go to" restaurant. Great pizza and wings right up to the best gourmet meal you could ask for with desserts to die for and all made fresh right there. The specials are always different and always... More

I was so surprised to read the "Not for fine dining" review. While I understand everyone is entitled to their opinion, we find the duck delicious. My husband's only difficulty is choosing between it and Tony's newer filet of beef dish. They're both simply wonderful -- and, in our opinion, not at all boring with the varying sauces he keeps...

off the beaten path, but close to where we live so thought we'd check it out. Hubby is an excellent cook so we look for places that offer special tasting food, sauces, herbs and flavors that meld together. We did not find it here. Salmon, boring, Duck, boring. It was all prepared nicely, good presentation, but just didn't impress our... More

This place is off the beaten track, but, given the good internet reviews, we decided to try after visiting Lake Lucerne. We weren't too hungry, so opted to share a pizza, leery, because this didn't seem to be a place that specializes. It took awhile (we had the sense, since we were early, that they were firing up the oven)... More

Spent a few days in the Saratoga area last week. As we have been doing for many years, my husband & I visited Abeel's restaurant. It is truly our favorite place in the entire region. My husband loves onion rings, so we always have an order of thoses. Abeel's has the best onion rings we have ever eaten. The rings... More
