Great service and the ambiance is the best! I went for a meeting with a group of investors. The waitress was very patient with us and made sure we had everything we needed. I would recommend this place to all my friends and family.

Though a stalwart dinner location they have a very well priced Sunday Brunch with 3$ Mary’s and mimosas. Really good steaks and definitely recommend the crab soup!

Had dinner here with daughter (college age) and her boyfriend. We all had something different, salmon, pesto shrimp pasta and prime rib, we were all very pleased and I was double pleased as it didn't break the bank.

Really enjoyed the atmosphere. Had calamari as an appetizer and prime rib for the main course and both were absolutely perfect.

Yes! We can accommodate almost all allergies, we always ask that you let your server know of your specific allergies so they can communicate to the kitchen and we can ensure every precaution is taken on your meals.

We at Freemason Abbey always recommend reservations, just to be on the safe side! And we are about a 7-10 minute drive from Douglas Wilder Performing Arts center
