We had a very long evening ahead of us. My son's band just finished playing at the Palladium and they wanted to watch more bands. I wanted to take the teens both in the band and and those who came with us to watch the band, out to dinner. We walked to this restaurant. No reservation (though please make them)... More

This place is a real Worcester Gem. I live in town and love to entertain my guests. I own an international business located here. Deb and I love this place. Even the dishwasher, Mike, is one of the most helpful employees they have. Food is great, service wonderful and the atmosphere is pure New England. Can'y go wrong.

Prob one of the better bars or one of the best ones in the Worcester area that's been there for a while and has been consistently good. Very nice ambiance inside with comfy couches by the window. It looked bigger inside that what I'd imagined or compared to my first experience. There's plenty of tables for groups. In the summer,... More

This places lives up to its reviews! My family decided to come check it out for their beer selection. There was a great variety of beer! They made it easy to customize flights to try a bunch. The food was great too - highly recommend the Short Rib Hash.

Had a gift certificate for this wonderful place - always wanted to try it. After a 15 minute wait was seated at a table with comfy window seat surrounded by pillows. Ordered a quiche made with fried brussels sprouts, roasted potatoes, apples, Vermont cheddar cheese, eggs w/ a side of dressed greens - SESATIONAL! Hubby had Cornmeal Pancakes with warm... More

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!
