The food is pricey, but for good reason. The salmon was some of the best I’ve had and the Philly Egg Rolls were a great starter. My partner enjoyed her steak as well. Our server did a good job of taking care of us and...the atmosphere will bring me back soon.More

Service was exceptional. Soup was delicious and served at the perfect temperature. Those of us that enjoyed steaks were very pleased. Although the grilled chicken, in the other meals was not prepared properly - overcooked and could not chew, so it was pushed to the...side of plates.More

I got there around 4:00. Only one couple at the bar. Another couple came in shortly after I did and sat at the bar. Bartender took care of drinks and orders. I ordered the Crab Cake sandwich to go, bun on the side and extra...aioli. Got my food home and it was not good. The cook put the cake on top of the tomatoes and lettuce so they all were wilted and I couldn't eat them. There was no avacodo and the Crab Cake was smashed to the thickness of a pancake. If I would have put it on the bun it would have hung over the bun in a 2 inch circumferance. Very disappointed.More

This is our second visit to Main + Abbey. Made an early reservation on a Saturday night, party of 8, celebrating an anniversary. We got a great table in a private back room. Entrance smelled a little smoky from the casino, but back room was...fine. Ordered a chocolate martini which was delicious. Wedge salad with ranch dressing simple but great taste. The breads were served and were also great. Had scallops which were cooked perfectly, a little too salty. Husband had pasta with shrimp, one member of our party had a delicious juicy burger. Another had the salmon and they ate every bit of it. We will definitely be back because this was excellent food and great service. A little expensive, but worth it for a special occasion.More

We popped in Friday night after we had enough of the slots and everything was really really good. The atmosphere was nice and our service was good. We started with the Philly steak eggs rolls- they were amazing! My husband had the filet and said...it was great. I had the lobster and shrimp roll- SO GOOD! We left completely stuffed and completely satisfied.More

No decaf coffee available was the least of the problems. Food was slow in being prepared even though the restaurant was not that busy. Ordered two pork chop dinners and had to send them both back because they were way undercooked showing lots of pink...inside. Mac & cheese had so much garlic that it was hard to eat. Table next to us sent their food back because it was not properly cooked. Waiter apologized several times for the way our food came out. Have eaten in many Hard Rock restaurants in both the US and Europe and never had a bad experience. Hopefully this location gets a new chef that knows how to properly cook food.More

My wife and I had dinner here last night. Here’s what we experienced. She had a ceasar salad and the fish and chips. She reported the salad dressing tasted like the whole tube of anchovy paste was on the salad. Not edible. The fish and...chips was very good. I had a wedge salad, a New York strip, and a baked potato. The wedge salad was just a slice of a head of lettuce. About half a half in thick. Weird. The steak was outstanding. Cooked perfect and well seasoned. The baked potato was not freshly baked. Maybe cooked the day before and warmed up. Our waitress was attentive and friendly.More
