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

We had our 2 year old and 2 month old with us and the staff were great, patient and quick service. My husband and I both had amazing meals. Get the fish and chips, it’s worth it! I had the scallops they were also great,...but the fish and chips is where it’s at! We sat outside, it was comfortable and our little man was able to play a little on the patio. Nothing better than to have staff that are understanding, patient and quick when you have two Little’s with you!More

We had both burgers on the menu, both very good. Wedge salad not good, lettuce very bitter and fresh onion soup decent. Waitress was polite.

I had the fish and chips and they were excellent, very filling and the fish was fantastic. My boyfriend had the juicy Lucy and was very juicy but frivolous! He had the Mac and Cheese as his side and it was creamy and very filling....We loved it and would come back for more!More

Tonight was a huge disappointment. Actually the last 3 times we have been have not been up to par!! The ticket time was over an hour and a half. Our reservation was at 7:00pm. We ordered drinks and appetizers, drinks came out fast, apps were...about 25 min later. Out entrees 40 minutes after. We walked out of the restaurant at 8:55. We didn’t even take our leftover. And there were a lot! Usually a server should notice these things and let management know. I would say, 3 strikes! I don’t feel the need to go back!More

Main and Abbey is usually our first choice when eating out that’s why giving the restaurant an average rating is tough. Tonight would have been eating there three weeks in a row. With it being Valentines Day we made a reservation a week ago for...8:30 thinking we could come in early and if there is a spot at the bar (which we prefer) we would cancel the reservation and enjoy a good meal at the bar. When we arrived there was only two people sitting at the bar (15-20 empty sets) so we said good and proceeded sit down and then we are informed by the hostess the bar was for people that had reservations at the tables for that time??? They have some great personable staff but management wow bad decision. Remember, patrons, regulars, word of mouth quality of food how important they are. The 3 years of patronage was reduced to nothing in one night. When you go to fill out this review it tells you this is 1 of 164 restaurants in the Sioux City area... why should I choose this one when we are treated like this.More

I like the Hard Rock, but for the food you could do better elsewhere. Nice atmosphere and goes a bit towards offsetting the cost.

I booked the private room in the Main +Abbey in the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino for our company Holiday Party. I can't say enough about the level of service and the EXCELLENT food that was provided. We had two servers, Paige and Sami Jo...and they took such good care of us. We enjoyed everything and I highly recommend this establishment. Appetizers, drinks, entrees and dessert were by far the best in Sioux City. Thank you so much Main + Abbey and Paige and Sami Jo...we will definitely be back.More
