Restaurant details
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Do not hesitate one moment to have one of the best meals of your life here. Seriously. I grew up in the restaurant business and my family still owns establishments. We are not easily pleased. Also, being a local we know what's worth it and what is not. The service is fantastic!! Chef Padilla knows how to create and prepare amazing meals. Tom, the owner is 100% hands on and makes everyone feel welcome. Try the field greens salad with salmon or chicken. Delicious. The flank steak skewers.....Yum! I could go on and on. Go on a Wednesday for Wine Wednesday. All glasses of wine $5. Great opportunity to experience wines you might not splurge on otherwise. Run Baby Run....to the Abbey.

The atmosphere reveals a friendly local meeting place with a wide assortment of beer and wine selections. The food is creatively prepared along with a reasonable price, making the Abbey one of our weekly outings.

We've been to the Abbey two times and both times have had an excellent meal, great service,in a fun atmosphere. The wonton nachos are to die for! We had the pesto pizza so yummy! A great selection of beer and wine. The hamburgers and chicken sandwiches accompanied by crisp thin french fries were delicious!

Stopped here the night before our cruise to Hawaii. What a great place to eat. Excellent food and beer selection. After our 15 day cruise we thought the food here was just as good if not better than most meals on the ship. Next time we are in town this will be a must visit.
