    Great craft beer selection, with sought after Hill Farmstead on tap. It's not on the menu, but get a flight. The blue cheese is amazing. Thai wings FTW and habanero pork tacos were on fire. Go here.

    The mac n cheese is always yummy because they use different beers all the time in it! Get a cheese slate for an app (9$ for 1 cheese, 15$ for 2, 20$ for 3). It comes with bread, honey, and jam!

    Everything is amazing. All food is made from scratch, beer selection is the best in the area and if you know beer prices are worth it and cocktails and desserts are amazing. This place is unique. GO!

    Lots of amazing craft beers! Also, I usually hate Mac N Cheese but it's pretty much life changing if you get it from here (also an entree that's easy on the wallet so why the hell not?)

    Food blogger Cara of Cara's Cravings recommends Armsby Abbey. "Diners can count on quiches prepared with farm-fresh eggs, stuffed French toast made with bread baked on-site, and breakfast pizzas."

    Great spot for hard to find / local / small batch beer. Bartender was extremely knowledgeable - seemed unapproachable at first, but warmed up to us. Highly recommended.
  • Gwenevere C.
    We had the cheese board, it was awesome...followed by the grilled cheese sandwich, which was to die for. I definitely will go back again, when I'm in town.

    Great list of beers on tap. Also if you need to clear your sinuses get the pulled pork sandwich with the fiery jerk sauce, it is insanely hot.

    Go for brunch; if you don't want a Bloody Mary, try the MakGriddle cocktail: a delicious blend of bacon-flavored bourbon, maple syrup, egg, and milk.

    The Abbey would still be a destination if it were only one of a top notch beer bar, cocktail bar, or farm to table restaurant. However, it happens to be all three.

    Of course, the beer selection is amazing, but if you're in the mood for something a bit different, you must try the beehive!

    Try the Rillons - Pork belly cooked in duck fat on celery and onion purée. Caramelized onion, radishes, and baby arugula. Food coma!

    When they warn you about the jerk chicken heat level, believe it. Good stuff but it will melt your tongue if you are not prepared.
