“Beer & Burgers”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

I have been going here for years. Great burgers especially Abby burger and the fries! They hundreds of beers to choose from and the small selection of wines by the glass that is pretty descent. You can not make reservations and you have just find seating on your own. It is usually very crowded and noisy, but fun if you are up for that atmosphere . There service can sometimes be described as a little nonchalant, but the place is constantly busy. Interesting mix of college type and locals. Skip there veggie burger (just a mushroom with a heavy vinaigrette dressing) and the salmon salad. The bistro salad is great along with the man salad.

“Pub with the best burgers anywhere”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

Busy, loud, fun, full of energy, huge beer selection, and the best burgers! If you want a quiet evening, don't come to the Back Abbey. If you want a great burger and fries and beer, this is the place.

“Back alley beer hall with great burgers”
Reviewed 22 September 2013 via mobile

Fun place -- terrific burgers and fries, using top quality and organic ingredients, and a large selection of beers. Inside is very much the beer hall scene, small, crowded, friendly and noisy. We sat outside and enjoyed the night air and watched people go by. Fills up quick; be ready for a wait to be seated.

Great selection of imported beers mostly European. Food is different but fairly good. Soft pretzel wasn't too great but abbey burger was tasty.

“Beer!!”
Reviewed 12 September 2013

Went to the Back Abbey with friends during my recent trip to CA. Hadn't been there before, but the friend we were visiting had and recommended it because of the excellent beer selection. I love a good beer selection and so I was totally game to try this place. The choice did not disappoint. Each of us had a great beer. We also had some mussels, crab cakes and the veggie burger. Everything was delicious.
