“Tasty, creative and served with a smile!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2013

Met some old pals here for dinner, and had a great time! I went with two appetizers - the beet salad (delicious and interesting to the palate - never thought of cardamom with beets, but it was delish!) and the "black and blue" (hanger steak with crispy shallots, figs and blue cheese -perfect balance of sweet, salty, pungent, and the steak was super tender!). My friends tried the lamb cigar, trout, brie and apple sandwich, lentils, bitter greens salad and the pork chop, which looked like the big rib thing that the Flintstones tied on the roof of their car (it was gigantic!) - everyone seemed quite happy, and we were all too full for dessert (too bad, the things the guys at the next table got looked yummy!)! The waitstaff were very attentive too. We all agreed that Abigail's was a good choice!

“Close to the hotel.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

5 of us ended up here after drinking at Mead Hall. Made a reservation just an hour ahead of time and couldn't get it for the exact time we wanted. When we got there the outside seating was full but inside the restaurant there where only 3 tables seated. One of our party eats gluten free and there where a couple of choices on the menu. Does not have sea food on the menu.

“Burger heaven!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

I would walk 5 miles for a good burger. In the case of Abigail's we drove 30+ miles for a great burger. The beef had just the right texture and the combination of the cheese, lettuce, onion and special sauce on a potato bun was wonderful. Fries were crispy and well flavored also. Actually liked this burger better than the nearby restaurant, Catalyst. Service was also very attentive!

“Fine and Consistent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

Cambridge has become a foodie haven, which is great. Abigail's is a consistent performer in the galaxy of great foodie haunts. In summer they have outdoo space. Good beer list, a creative menu and a good service staff make this one of my favorite lunch or dinner haunts. their lunch menuy is not extensive but they do it well. The specials are first rate. Lunched there twice in June alone and I neither work nor live in 02139.

it was crispy and yum. You get an option of salad/ potato fingers on the side. I had lemonade with this and overall the patio sitting and the meal were just perfect on a sunny boston afternoon
