After a long day at the beach and millions of UV rays, the family was very hungry and needed food. Google selected this place for us and we took the 25 minute drive from the beach. Abes has plenty of parking yet look out for...the food truck that is next to the restaurant. You wait to be seated in an open dinning area. The restaurant has a sports theme and is surrounded with large screen TV's. As you would infer, it's a bar food menu. The starving group ate burgers, Philly, chips and salsa, and this lobster man had clam chowder with wings. When I asked for 12 wings I had a dissertation on why I could only have one sauce. When our server explained the options of breading or no breading on the wings and only one sauce I felt I was on the SNL show with John Belushi, burger no burger cheeseburger. I was so tired and burned by the sun I didn't care. Well I felt it and yup as expected low quality food. The clam chowder warm and very think. The wings were warm and the 2 side sauces didn't add much to the taste of warm chicken. The kids were hungry ate up their meals. With the chips and salsa, you could add queso for $1 in a small bowl which was not good. Our server was a nice lady yet wasn't helped by the kitchen. Don't think the Bar Rescue guy would be good to this place. I paid with Discover card and was told we don't do Discover. The bill was $83 plus tip. If you are coming in from out of town, I'd say avoid this place you'll do better at a fast food place.More

This is a lovely sports bar with lots of TVs in it. The food they serve is really good and has reasonable prices. Especially the happy hour offers for cocktails are phenomenal. The staff is also very kind and seems to be always smiling. All...in all a very lovely place.More

Two words: Jalapeño Poppers! Just a great restaurant all around! We stayed at the condo located near/behind Abe’s location on Missouri in Clearwater and ate here (carry out and dine in depending on the evening) at least 5 times during our vacation. They have a...large menu with a list of wing sauces and rubs a mile long! As mentioned, jalapeño poppers are amazing. We also enjoyed wings with the house sauce, blackened chicken bowl, chili, chicken wrap, BLT, and try their coleslaw! They have TVs on the patio for football and a beer stand- for while you wait- for your to go order. They say they have the best wings in the Tampa area, and I don’t disagree! Very affordable and casual dining experience with great service! and choices.More

I decided very last minute to give Abe's Place Tap & Grill a try. I walked in the door at 10 minutes prior to 9 on a Friday evening, not realizing they would close at 9p.m. The parking lot was full and there seemed to...be many diners in the restaurant as well. I asked if they were still serving, and I was advised, "if you can get your order in within the next 10 minutes, yes". The gentleman at the counter did not seem put out, and was polite and smiling when he let me know the terms and I thought I could easily make up my mind in 10 minutes, as I was on a mission for a great burger. I have in the past heard many good things about Abe's and I will say they lived up to the reputation. The service was excellent, from the way I was greeted and sat immediately. To my waitress (Deanna), who approached with big smile, and was amazing in taking my order right away. I don't drink beer, and that would most likely be the reason I probably steered away from Abe's in the past. I ordered their Coyote Burger, a bacon cheese burger with BBQ sauce. Described on the menu with cheddar cheese, bacon, and drenched in BBQ sauce. I personally would ask in the future for extra sauce on the burger. I ordered their onion rings for a side. And tried the house wine, which I was advised by Deanna was on special, and she asked if I would like her to bring both at once as it was a two for one offer. I agreed to this and the wine came out in a reasonable time. Food did not come out rushed. I didn't wait long, however, it wasn't on the table in less than two minutes, making me feel like they needed to get out, either. My personal experience. The burger seems to be fresh. did not have the appearance of a frozen burger, or the texture. The meat was juicy and cooked to perfection. It was not pounded into a rubbery patty. It was a true hamburger that had the taste and texture of a very well made burger. The bun was fresh, and grilled. It was toasted not soggy, and held up well to the burger. They did not skimp on the bacon in any way (which is amazing, with the increased cost of bacon lately). I would say, on a half pound burger, I did not have a bite of burger without bacon involved. The burger was covered with a perfect amount of cheese as well. And in most peoples cases "smothered in BBQ sauce" would have been met, however I love bbq sauce and as I said would ask for more in the future. This burger comes with a side, usually fries it appears and the price point was only $12. It was a half pound burger. I would say the price, quality and service are spot on. I will definitely be visiting again in the near future. In closing, I can not leave out the onion rings. They tasted as if they may have been hand battered at the restaurant. They have a slight sweet taste to the batter, maybe a honey flavor. And they are served with a house horseradish sauce. The sauce was very tasty as well. I have personally tried many places from the beaches to St. Pete and all the way up to Tarpon Springs. So far I would say this was hands down the best burger. If you are in the Clearwater/Largo area and looking, check them out.More

As locals who have lived in Florida our entire life’s we like to support local businesses. Abe's Place has been one of our favorites ever since they took over this restaurant. I have NEVER spent $53.00 on just 3 orders of Boneless wings and fries...TOGO!!!! I about fell over when the girl told me my total tonight. Apparently Abe's decided to raise their prices to a VERY unreasonable price considering it's not a high class restaurant and is a sports bar. We might as well have gone to Fleming's or something for the price we paid tonight. We will not be back until the prices match the food and atmosphere. You can't charge $21 for 1lb fried boneless wings with fries and $12 for 1/2lb Boneless wings with fries. That is INSANE! I know the owners will blame Covid as most people do when they are being greedy… We all know what is available to help business owners so please don't give your loyal customers some BS excuse because it's unreasonable. Food is decent, but not what it should be for $53. Certainly wasn’t worth $53!More

Abe's has sadly gone downhill and hit rock bottom. Quality has diminished. I ordered 1lb of their so called famous boneless wings wit NUCLEAR sauce and the sauce wasn't even mildly spicy. An infant could have eaten them. I emailed them twice to complain and...received no response at all. NO MORE ABE'S EVER AGAIN. AVOID THIS PLACE. Not the same as it once was.More

If you’re looking for a really rude place to grab lunch on a patio you’ll love this place. Server was not friendly at all. Food was mediocre. Place wasn’t very clean either. Ended with a vagabond bumming cigarettes on the patio.

We ordered the wings with garlic Parmesan flavored sauce and they were VERY delicious. This place has a bar like atmosphere so come with that expectation. There are plenty of TVs with various sports events being shown. Prices are reasonable and the portions are healthy.

I have eaten Abe's wings many times and they are always fantastic. Today was no different. Huge tenders wings with great flavor and cooked perfect. They are thee best wings you could ever want. I moved much farther north but was going to Clearwater and...has to stop by. The annoying part was I could not get a pitcher of beer and had to pay $5.50 for 2 small plastic cups. Also the mask restrictions in Pineapple county are totally ridiculous. I will go back again when all of this stupid crap is over. Very good service from our waitress.More

Here's why I love Abe's!! I just came back from working a trade show in Orlando, Florida. After spending all day on my feet, I dealt with 3 hours of Friday night, rush hour traffic coming home to Largo, Florida. Too tired to cook, I...pulled over, and placed an order online with Abe's Place, in Largo, Florida, ordering a 1/2 LB of boneless Buffalo Hot-flavored wings (sloppy), and a side order of curly fries (a must!).  My order was hot, and waiting for me, once I arrived, and when I got home, it was as delicious as I anticipated. Hands down, Abe's serves the best wings in Pinellas County, Florida!!  They have staunch local competition, and their wings are simply better!!  Great kitchen staff, wait staff, who are always friendly, even when it's busy, and bartenders, who are always ready with a smile.  Five out of five stars!! More
