Restaurant details
Reviewed 11 July 2012

Initially came here because I bought a Living Social or Groupon deal. Ever since then, I probably go a couple times a month. The staff are awesome, the food is delicious (especially the popular items marked with an asteriks on their menu), lots of beer on tap, and a relaxing place to hang out. Everyday they have different specials e.g. Happy Hour all day Monday, buy one entree and get the second 1/2 off on Tuesdays and I can't seem to remember the others. And, for dinner they have wonderful specials as well.

I really like their wings (get them extra spicy), the west coast burger, and just had the baja turkey burger today which was awesome!!!!

Love the location to, it's right on Main Street in Seal Beach.

Definitely worth trying.

Seal Beach's the Abbey Restaurant is in a modest location 3 blocks from the Pier. Having to compete on Main Street, where it seems like every other building houses a reataurant, this little gem holds its own, and more.

the Abbey has great lunches, very good dinners and a terrific bar. You will find the servers willing to help you with good choices, and, for us, more importantly, had one of their prime salads set up in a vegan format for us.

the Abbey is crowded (rightfully so) at both lunch and dinner. It pays to think about your timing on when you want your meal. (A recommendation is to adjust your schedule and stroll Main Street - shopping is good - if it is crowded when you arrive.)

My lunch meal of choice was the Spinach and Black bean Salad, adjusted to be a Vegan delight. I was pleased that our server was eager to set it up to meet our needs. In talking with him, he indicated that the Abbey was willing to adjust their menus to dietary needs whenever possible.

A suggestion to beat the evening crowds is to head over early and enjoy Happy Hour. Good prices on both food and drinks.

the Abbey is worth a visit, and you won't be alone in deciding it is a place to return to.

Nice atmosphere, good selection. Wish I would ordered salad with chicken on top like my friend. Chicken tacos looked really good too. Kid happy with slider and fries :)

Next time I'll try their wood oven baked pizzas :)
Don't miss it if you are around Seal Beach...

The Abbey is now under new managementment and with their updated menu and lots of new selections, a good stop. One of the best is their hamburgers fire grilled and high enough to come with a steak knife. Pizzas, salads and changing beers on tap add to the ever growing popularity of this renewed restaurant making it a great choice for dining or just dropping in for a beer, glass of wine and local flavor.
