“If you haven't been here you gotta try it”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

If you want to get away from the chain restaurants at Inner Harbor the Abbey is a short walk located in Federal Hill. Service was great. It was 85 degrees that day and before I could even sit down they gave us glasses of ice water. I had their black and blue burger which was very good. I would recommend the home made chips that come with the burgers rather than spend the extra $2 for fries. They have build your own burgers where you can get bison, kangaroo, smoke black angus, chicken and the day I was there they had duck too. We ate up stairs which has a small bar and four flat screens.

“First impression, not a lasting one”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

Greeted by a less than enthusiast young women who was perched in front of the door. Greeted by two less than friendly or attentive bartenders; one of whom filled water cups, but failed to fill the order for beers we requested. Another bartender filled the beer and subsequent food order. The crab tots were amazing! We were pleasantly surprised at the amount of real crab meat and cheese topping that adequately covered the plate of tots; enough to sharing. The atmosphere was rather bland and not really friendly. The menu items looked really good and that would probably be the only reason we'd return. For us, it wasn't the type of place we'd want to hang out at; it's a grab a beer and bite and go.

“Friendly Bar with Great Burgers”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

We stopped here with friends and had a great time. The owner and bartenders were very friendly and helpful. The burgers were great. Sampled their strawberry beer and apple cider beer, both were unbelievably good. A definite spot to return to although you have to know where it is to find it.
