“No Thanks to Seafood in Abilene”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2013

The atmosphere was gloomy, the food was frozen I ordered a steak medium and it was well, but you can tell it was frozen when they cooked it. The bread was burnt, the only decent thing was the lobster bisque.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2013

This place was such a nice surprise! The lunches are excellent and we liked the dinner too. The food tastes good and is well prepared. I love the look of the restaurant, very cozy and tavern looking. The menu has a wide selection of seafood and drink options and the prices are good. Our servers seemed a little overworked but I know a lot of places are short handed. I am so happy to have another quality seafood place in Abilene.

“Wish We Had This Restaurant in Our Town!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2013 via mobile

Yes, this place is dated. I felt like I stepped back into a Steak and Ale from 1985! BUT- the food was really good! The spouse and I both had the specials- he the tilapia special and I the steak special. Everything was really tasty, including the incredible chocolate cake! But the best thing- that still makes our mouth water- was the lobster bisque! It was a big bowl of creamy happiness! We could eat this every day! The lobster flavor is intense, yet you won't find any chunks of lobster in the soup, which is the only missing element to the perfect soup.
We passed through Abilene going to and from Midland and stopped at Abilene Seafood Tavern each time- we ate there two days in a row! Wish we were closer to Abilene!

“Excellent Lunch!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2012

We have eaten at the Seafood Tavern for lunch several times over the last couple of months. The service is always impeccable and the food is above our expectations. The lunch specials are Tuesday - Sunday, closed for lunch on Monday. For 6.95 there are some great options available, this price also includes their delicious pumpernickel bread and iced tea. Our favorite is the fish and chips in a beer batter. Even my teenage boys and husband leave this lunch full, which isn't always the case. The portions are generous and taste is wonderful. Highly recommend!!
