Most every review of this place was spot-on. If you're a beer and cheese and comfort food lover, you simply CANNOT visit Worcester without swinging into the Abbey. The mac & cheese was simply one of the most unique and flavorful I've had in my life. The specialty chicken soup with its incredible and complex bold flavor was simply one... More

I was in town on business , asked some friends if they had found any great restaurants and Armsby was mentioned. Walked there and though it looked quiet from the outside I found it to be a friendly warm environment . Fantastic micro beer offerings , not the usual that you see and surprised to find several from Hill Farmstead.... More

Went to this pub and the food is decent. The service was slow and since the pub is a bar, the wine list was marginal but ok.

I love Armsby Abbey for brunch. Actually, I love it all the time, but my favorite is brunch. They make the best Bloody Mary's and the food is all local and delicious. The beer selection is great too!

The beer selection here beats anywhere. There is always something I want to try (I like lighter stouts, porters, the occasional sour), and always something I enjoy a lot. The mac-n-cheese is nicknamed "crack-n-cheese" for a reason. They do it up homestyle, with large chunks of toasted fresh bread on top covered in cheese. They make it with beer in... More

Brunch food is outstanding, we enjoy coming here a few times a month. Good selection of beers and the Bloody Mary selection is outstanding! Bartenders are generally friendly and service is good considering how busy it can get!

A group of friends had a wonderful brunch here prior to a game at the DCU - great menu featuring local foods / we ordered many things and all were wonderful. Great selection of beers to accompany the food.

We stumbled on this place and are glad we did. We wanted sandwiches; the beer selections were a bonus. I tried Medusa Antioch, which I might not have appreciated on its own, but with a sandwich, it was great. Also had good tomato soup. Beers are not inexpensive; many bottles cost $10-12. Mine was draft, and was $6; worth it.... More

I had brunch on Saturday. Didn't realize anyone actually offered that. Started with a bloody mary. Sooo good. You get to pick the spicyness of the drink plus 3 garnishes. I chose bacon, olive and pickled cauliflower. It was delicious. I ordered the Tortilla de Verduras Otoños, which is sort of like a quiche and cost $12. It was spicy... More

This is my Sunday brunch place! The Bloody's of course are amazing, but the bartenders are the people to thank! They always take care of us, and just make it look so smooth behind all the chaos! Let's not forget the cheese plates and how fresh everything is! Thanks Armsby for always a delish Sunday!
