Thank you Diana for taking the time to write a review for the Abbey. These reviews really help us get the traffic off the interstate and downtown to our beautiful town of London. We work hard to keep the service and food excellent. Come back soon.

“A must!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Passing through the town of London on our way home and decided to stop by the abbey for dinner. BEST DECISION OF THE TRIP! Great service, and best steaks we've had in a while. Two of us got the steak tips with broccoli and two got the ribeye with the abbey chips. EVERYTHING was delicious! The steaks were tender and cooked to perfection. Add in the cute 'family environment' and reasonable prices you have a MUST GO to restaurant. Enjoy a nice steak and beer while relaxing!!

“A good, new, local place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

I went in here quickly for lunch recently, having never had it before. I ordered the potato soup, which was very good, and the shrimp po' boy, which was excellent. I was in and out of the place in probably 40 minutes or less, and including tip, my bill was under $15. Service was very good, the price was low, the food was great, and I got enough of it, and I look forward to going back for lunch/dinner again in the future. Glad to have something new in London, esp downtown, we need more local places here.

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

We read good reviews here and decided to try it. We ordered 2 appetizers. Potato skins that wew barely average and chicken strips that were very good. 3 of us ordered burgers. They was absolutely nothing special about them. A little salt would have really helped. The service was excellent. The booths are hideous. They are so wide that you must lean forward on the table. If you try to lean back you are a mile from the table. I can't even begin to imagine what they were thinking when they chose them. Will we go back? No. Even if they learned to salt their food, the booths are way too uncomfortable. It wasn't bad food, it just wasn't great either.

Thank you for your review....I'm sorry we didn't meet your expectations. I assure we not only salt our food...but our seasoning consists of 8 different ingredients including salt and season salt. Most people like our booths because they are large but we do have tables available for your confort. Im pleased that our service impressed you and hope you do come back.
