We have date night on Wednesday's and my spouse and I take turns picking a place for our dinner. I picked Abigail's even though my husband wasn't thrilled with on line menu selection. He was worried I would have trouble finding something I would like. Although crowded we were sat timely and our service was quick and efficient. From the... More

Seven of us went to Abilgail's to celebrate a birthday. The restaurant was crowded and noisy for a week night. Food was good but not great ... Polish food was definitely not their specialty. Pierogi were bland as were the stuffed cabbage. I would go back another time to try some Porteguese food. One thing that was upsetting is that... More

I wasn't impressed. Food is okay, but average. Service was slow. I won't bother going back,even with a coupon. Decor is dated.

Been here twice and both times had Abigail's plate. Both times it was excellent. Home made polish food at its finest. Wife had the filet and lobster tail which was also very good. Calamari appetizer was fresh and tender.....so good. Can't go wrong with the sangria either.

The food here is unique for the most part but they have options for the picky too! I enjoy the plate of pierogi's and my husband always tries something new. If it's nice then the outside patio is nice, although the view is the street right there. Still with it.

Probably the worst parking situation of any restaurant ever, even in the city. That aside, good mix of food, Polish, Portuguese, and they make good sangria. Worth the stop.

Abigail's has Eastern European food you can't find everywhere that is very tasty at a decent price. We're going again tonight, bringing friends & we'll try the desserts this time
