“Great Burgers, Great Beer.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

We try many places in OC so that we can provide a nice list of options for our rental guests. When we saw Abbey when going to Northside Park we knew that we had to try it as everybody loves a good burger. It is hard to spot from Coastal Highway, but turn on 127th and there it is. As some folks have mentioned the décor is a little bland. Funny thing is that I don’t eat the walls. As long as the place is clean and in good repair I could care less about the color palate of the restaurant. We were promptly seated and a highchair arrived at the same time as we arrived at the table. The server was attentive and explained the menu and the “build your own burger” option. We opted to order three of their sandwiches directly off the menu. Wife ordered the Philly burger, me the lamb burger and our daughter the crab cake sandwich. The two burgers were cooked spot on. Both were generous in size and had great flavor. Our daughter commented that her crab cake was one of the best she has ever had. (She’s 10 so take that how you want it). I found her sandwich to have a decent amount of crab and the flavor was good. Did I mention that they have a great beer menu?

All in all we will definitely recommend Abbey to our guests. The restaurant is family friendly. The service and food were good. The “build your own burger” menu appeals to folks who may be picky eaters. The prices are reasonable. The beer menu appeals to daddies who wish they left their family back home.

“A Great Idea in the Burger World”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Abbey Burger opened in Ocean City this summer. The claim was that they were voted best burger in Maryland at their Baltimore location by the Baltimore Sun. As we are recent full time residents of OC and have always sang the praises of Molly's Shabeen in Manhattan as the world's best burger we were skeptical of the advertising but our visit last week confirmed that while Molly's is still best, Abbey Burger is a worthy contender and our best local Hamburger option. While the menu lists many different combinations of meats such as kangaroo, bison etc , it the "build your own burger" option that really carries the day. Your choice in breads, meats,,toppings and a good and reasonable wine list are just what you ordered and the service is very good also. We will be back frequently.

“Great place to watch the Game! Burgers are Fantastico!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

I have become a local and find this place to be a great place for Craft Brew and Burgers. Haven't had any other food yet, but may try something different soon. Stuck on the Burgers! I would recommend this place to anyone who wishes to relax and enjoy any game on TV. Lots of Screens of course - The Best Burgers around!

“Good Burgers”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

A decent place to get a burger, drink a beer, or watch the game. Not cheap but where else are you going to get a choice of kangaroo, bison, or kobe beef? Staff was pleasant and reasonably efficient. The decor is rather bland, it looks like they hurried their renovations from the previous tenant to get open for the season. Hopefully they will spend the off season giving the place a more thorough redecoration.

“Off the chain bugers !!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

So, your driving down Coastal Highway in Ocean City , Maryland, craving for a burger !!!! VOILA !!! The Abbey Burger Bistro !!! Look for the sign located on the main highway, the restaurant is located next to Holiday Inn. Let me tell you, the BEST BURGER we have ever had. They offer a variety of burgers to choose from, including a build your own. They also offer different exotic meats on the menu. There is a vegetarian burger and also a mushroom burger for those that don't eat meat. Their homemade chips are delish !!!! Beer is very cold. But the burger is off the charts. The burger was moist, juicy, flavorful, melt in your mouth madness ! . The service was very good, and the manager made his rounds to all the tables to make sure that everything was OK. So, when you are in OC. look up Abbey's for a sensational burger experience.
