I spent several months in Worcester and this was one of the most reliable places to eat and drink, for those who like beer. They have a rotating list, with several hard-to-come-by local brews, such as Hill Farmstead.

My daughter and I were visiting Massachusetts from the Chicagoland area in preparation for her move here. We had dinner at Armsby Abbey and it was wonderful. Our server was wonderful, the food was delicious and locally grown, and the beer was great.
