We have visited the Abbey on date night, with friends in town and even Easter brunch with our family. The food never disappoints and the beer menu is always a plus!

not per se but a lot of it is gluten free and they cook so much to order I am SURE if you told them you would like gluten free they would help you. I was very impressed by food and service attitudes
