Abe Erb is my new favourite restaurant but after tonight I’m not sure. Burnt fries. Don’t order a salad. Mediocre. McDonalds have more flavour and their salad is cheaper. After having such great experiences so far, tonight was so disappointing. I hope this is an...More

Enjoyed the burger. I’m not a beer person so if you are there is a variety to try. They did have more cider to choose from which was nice. I like how they try to keep things local 👍🏻

The food is good and the price is reasonable. Same with the beer. I found the spicy soup too spicy for my taste though.

Nice atmosphere. Egregiously overpriced for quantity and quality of food. Be careful: they will overcharge at happy hour edges. Service was mediocre at beat.

This place is terrific but the service can be a bit scattered depending on who is working. Came after work one day in late afternoon when place was dead and waited for about 5 mins without getting a drink. Decided to head up to counter...More
