“Great restaurant in the Claremont Village”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

This is a fun place for a great sandwich, with craft beers aplenty. Lively, upbeat, noisy ambience, always crowded, even with outside seating.

“Unique Experience”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Old ice house turned into a wonderful experience restaurant.French fries cooked in duck fat make for the best in the area french fries. A beer or glass of wine always is better sitting outside on the patio.

“What's not to like about their fries?”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Whenever I come to the Back Abbey I first order something to drink and an order of their French fries -- the best ever because they are cooked in duck fat and served with three dipping sauces. The Backyard Burger never disappoints and neither do the salads. They are a little heavy on the dressing for my taste, but my husband says that lettuce is just a vehicle for dressing, so he is thrilled to come here. I would pass on dessert (or order another round of fries!).

“Good burgers”
Reviewed November 21, 2013 via mobile

I was told this place had good burgers and it's definitely worth it. The Back Abbey was a good burger and worth the lunch trip. Ask for tomatoes on it if you like it

“Pictures do it justice”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

The burger pictures and fries really look and taste as good as that. I can only speak to the food though the beer selection is large. Fries cooked in duck fat make for crisper outside and softer inside. Burgers with super fresh ingredients make these the best burgers in the village bar none. They have other stuff too. It's all excellent, but you pay for that.
