At Main + Abbey, we have the style and warmth that make for a perfect evening with friends, or an intimate dinner for two. When our guests walk through our doors, they may notice the old world brick, the vibrant colors or the center bar and know that we've left the stuffiness and unpronounceable menu out. Our polished casual and bright setting helps guests unwind and enjoy themselves.

We really enjoy Main and Abbey. The food is always great as it was again. We had the Rib eye with the crab enhancement. Excellent! Our Waitress on the other hand not the best. She was very sweet just no knive for steak, wrong drink etc. Otherwise great time.

Staff was super friendly. The place is cool, calming and relaxing. Was hoping the food would hold up to the same standards but it wasn’t close. The spinach and artichoke fondue was the best thing we had. I got the scallops, cooked and overcooked on the one side and a plateFULL of raw vegetables. The purée underneath looked like puke thrown on a plate. My date had the carbonara, the sauce was about the only thing in the bowl with a few peas and raw pancetta. I also tried the French onion soup. The baguette inside was stale. Like 3 weeks ago. . And the soup itself tasted like saltwater with a hint of onion. Being only half capacity and only half full at that time. Should’ve gotten better food for spending 200$ on dinner for two people. Understanding it’s a scratch kitchen but for 30$ per plate the food should be almost perfect. Not fast food. I would’ve rather waited 5 more minutes for great food than being hurried for crappy ramen noodles. First time going and probably the last. Rather eat at Kahills for half the price and know what im going to get. I’m not the best cook by any means but god forbid you try to put fourth effort on every plate when charging people that much for food...@ a casino.... the hard rock was not rockin. Even tho the staff was friendly the food was damn near garbage. Not at all trying to be rude. Just an honest customer looking for decent food in sewer city.

Great atmosphere inside, but we ate outside and it was very nice. Appreciated that wait staff were all wearing masks. Food and service was OUTSTANDING! The Salted Caramel White Russian is like drinking dessert...and that's a good thing :)

We had ceasar salad with our dinner but my first bite tasted fishy. It had a an anchovy on it or some kind of fish. That I was not prepared for. Not something I’d recommend serving on a salad. Everything else was excellent.

The shrimp scampi is to die for. It’s not like normal shrimp scampi but it’s amazing. Get it and don’t look back.

Everyone's food was excellent and we had a great birthday gathering. One glaring issue: the menu had no vegan options for one person in our party. Lots of people avoid avoid animal products these days for health and ethical reasons. Our server and the chef handled this as best they could in the moment and they were very kind, but the restaurant probably needs to address this. They have creative chefs who could easily make unique vegan options so everyone can choose at least one thing from each section of the menu.

Great food and our server Sami is the best. We ask to be seated in her area every time we go if she is working. She does an awesome job of checking on you and making sure your drinks are filled. Great dinner! My husband and I shared the tomahawk it was so much we still had food to take home.

Valentines dinner...didn’t stay to eat as they only served a few items because of the holiday and didn’t serve anything that was on there normal menu which is what we go there for. Very disappointed...would have been nice to know ahead of time that they weren’t going to serve there normal menu.

I made a reservation for 645pm. I arrived on time and my husband and I ordered our entrees by 655pm. By 740pm we still did not have our food. We asked several times how much longer it would be. We kept being told it would be only 5-6 minutes more. We finally decided to just leave without eating. The menu was very limited for VDay. So we were hesitant to stay but the waitress said that was to make sure that food came out faster since they were so busy. Probably will not dine again.

Went on Valentines night expecting a great meal.. unfortunately that was not what we got.. While our server.. Sami Jo.. did all she could do the meal was so sub standard there was saving it.. we spent in excess of $200 and left disappointed we did not make a scene as not wanting to ruin other diners experience but never got a response from a phone and direct message.. we've dined here before with great pleasure and hope this is an isolated incident

Waitress took too long to greet and ask for drinks. We reviewed entire menu and decided what to eat BEFORE she even acknowledged us and asked to take drink orders. Needless to say we skipped the appetizer because of this issue.

I ordered the ribeye. I like my steaks rare but usually get medium rare to not gross my wife out. This stake was charred perfectly on the outside and on the edges, but was cold...fridge cold in the middle. This means they put a partially thawed steak on the flame. Baked potato was perfect and what you would expect.

Wife got the juicy loosey. Great at first. Then once my wife got almost to the end the meat looked cooked but was raw. Once again a frozen patty was put on the grill.

The final bill was cheap. Didn’t make a fuss because we both had our fill but while the stay at the hard rock was good, and we will be back, I think we will skip eating here again.

Forget the hype about Main & Abbey’s “new” menu. There are a few different things but nothing that jumps out at the eye. The most extensive change is they have now taken away a choice of two sides when you order an entree, you now only get one side and may pay $6 for your second. Of course the price has stayed the same for less choices. Once again I ordered my steak medium as I alway do, it was well done no red and barely any pink in the center and was charred on the outside. I am fed up with this place and will not return until they hopefully realign themselves someday with new management. Below I have included what Main & Abbey calls an 8oz steak cooked medium.

We had a reservation on New Year’s Eve. When we showed up they said they were 15 minutes behind on reservations, which was totally fine. They said they would text us when our table was ready. We never got a text and when we went to ask about it they said there was nothing they could do as they were full. We were obviously upset as it was 9:00 at this point and hungry.

The food was so delicious! We all tried something new and enjoyed "sampling" each other's food!
My only negative was that I made reservations for 7:00 p.m. and we finally got seated at a table at 7:30 p.m. Server was very friendly. It was an enjoyable evening, celebrating the New Year!
