We stopped in a little after noon on a Sunday after vacationing in Asheville. We were told the breakfast bar switched to vegetable and fruit buffet at noon. As a result, we decided to order from the menu. Breakfast (from the menu) is always available and my wife ordered her normal breakfast meal. Food was delivered fast and was well... More

A great family friendly country restaurant with good home cooking. Very affordable for a family of 4. Great selection on the salad bar and vegetable bar. My kids loved the ice cream shop!

We had dined at this restaurant previously when it was at a different location. While dining there then we were told that the restaurant was moving a short distance away into an old steakhouse property. We were afraid that this restaurant would lose its down home appeal in doing so. Boy, were we surprised! Everything is better. The same down... More

Good food but a little expensive for what you get. I eat here once in awhile but better choices in town for the money.

They should offer more than one meat with the soup, fruit, and vegetable bar; but overall the food is very good for the price and the atmosphere is very family friendly.

We really enjoyed Abele's. The menu is very big with something for every taste. I had the chicken stir fry with rice which was very good. My husband tried the hot veggie bar and was pleased. Our kids had the chicken wings, grilled cheese and ribeye steak. All were very good and in large portion sizes. Milkshakes to end the... More

We recently ate at Abele's the first weekend in June 2015. It was Saturday night, we were seated in a booth. Since they have not been moved too long you would think the seats wouldn't sink too bad just yet, but they did. I ordered just the hot bar. The hot bar was half empty. The worst part was the...
