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 are frequent quests at Main & Abbey. This was truly our first rather bad experience. The filet I ordered came out and was the size of a quarter dollar. My son had the same filet and his was large and looked like it should. How the cook could even send two of the same meals out that didn’t look alike at all is beyond me. The waitress was great but the kitchen was definitely lacking tonight. I think we will give Main & Abbey a rest for awhile.

I was a bit disappointed in the quality of the food compared to the price of the food. I don't have a problem paying a good price for a good meal but the portions were small and the chicken over cooked. The service was good which was what kept us from pointing this out that evening!

I thought the food was just ok. The steak didnt have much flavor. The appetizers were ok but nothing special. We got carrot cake for dessert. It was HUGE, but that was the only thing wow about it. The frosting didnt hve much flavor. This is my 4th time there and I have never been blown away.

We were seated right away! Wonderful! Waitress got our drinks and my husband ordered a Captain Morgan sprite. The first drink was clear and no taste of booze. Brought a different one, same. So, if your standard rocks glass holds more than 8 oz, please consider either putting more booze in or making your rocks glasses smaller. A real drink really does have a little bit more than an oz, so quit being cheap with your booze. (not blaming bartender or waitstaff). We will know to stick with the beer there. We had a group of 6, two of them ordered a mushroom Swiss burger. Neither one came with mushrooms. At all. I was also a little irritated to see that you add mandatory gratuity for a table of 6. SIX. Large groups, yes, I can see that. But a table of 6 was ridiculous and I added a generous tip on top of the "mandatory" gratuity, but I guarantee you the other two couples did not. Am I normally this picky at a restaurant? Only when I am paying over $50 an entree and also ordered a bottle of wine off the menu. We could have stuck to Outback, had better service and spent half as much.

This is the best place for steak, however this time our orders were wrong and wasn't made right. Manager asked our opinion and did nothing when we told him our orders were wrong.

This was our second time dining there, the couple with us, it was their first. We were there for Aaron Lewis concert ( which was awesome) went to dinner before the show. Our waitress Sammy Jo was very kind, I believe she just was overwhelmed with the amount of tables she had, and I have been a waitress so I understand. The manager was so polite to us, he noticed our ticket had been sitting awhile.. our food was very good, just on the cold side.. he made it worth our while to come see them again, we weren’t expecting that, but thanked him for his prompt attention and professionalism.. we like coming to Hard Rock, and like this restaurant, will defiantly be back.. carrot cake was amazing.

I had the Scallop dish - they were too salty. The Bleu Cheese dressing on the wedge salad was mediocre.

So was the Lobster bisque. My husband had the Bass - now that was very good.

Quite disappointed. Looking forward to the new menu coming out.

All the food was amazing. The service however was very poor. I do understand that where was a party there but it took 40+ minutes to get out drink. All I had ordered was a beer that came in a can.

It was a great evening celebrating our 35th anniversary. The food was perfect and good wine. When you go there, ask for Maria for your server. She is absolutely wonderful. Thanks to Maria and Jeff for a great evening.

It has bad acoustics so was very noisey and could not carry on a conversation, and ordered a medium rare steak that was almost well done. Not very happy with the entire night.

The food was absolutely wonderful. Love the changes made to the menu. Our waiter on the other hand was nice but he needs to slow down and pay attention to his tables. He was talking to you and walking away all at the same time.

The atmosphere is almost always great at Main & Abbey. The service during this visit was not good and they were out of bread according to our server. Our server did not inform us they were out of bread beforehand but somehow the table next to ours got some. It took our sever a very long time to get us drinks, refills and just pay attention to us in general. When he did bring our food, drinks etc it was almost as if he was throwing the items on the table. They were pretty busy but being in the line of work he is in his attitude was unwarranted.

The sea bass was excellent. The steak sandwich was good but “nothing to write home about”. The service was good but I would rate it slow. Prices are higher for Sioux City. Overall I would recommend this restaurant.

Food is excellent,service is slow. Place was about 1/4 to 1/3 full and we waited almost 15 minutes after being seated before waiter asked for drinks and then another 5-7 to get the drinks.During that time staff was chatting amongst themselves. No sense of urgency.

Worst service ever. Ordered coconut shrimp and onion rings for appetizers and never did receive them. Drinks ordered on ice, came with no ice. Our order was finally taken after sitting for over 20 minutes. The filet I ordered was great. Friend ordered salmon and got Sea Bass instead. Other two friends orders were okay. Waitress was snippy at first, then apologetic when she screwed up on the appetizers and drinks and also one of our orders.

Waitress was hustling, but just had too many tables. She was a bit too busy for what’s expected at a higher end restaurant. She did take care of all of our needs, we just needed to be a bit patient.
Food was excellent as usual.
We will be back again!

I loved that I could make a reservation for this restaurant. We were going to a concert nearby and knew that everywhere would be busy. We were also running a bit late so I called and told them and they were super nice and assured us they would hold our place. We both ordered appetizers. I would definitely recommend the chicken and pepper jack cheese egg rolls. Yum!

We chose the Main and Abbey for our anniversary dinner with friends. While our server was friendly enough, our waiting on our waiter changed our experience from excellent to mediocre. We were in the restaurant for 2 hours, and not by our choice. It was a Wednesday night, and not busy enough to warrant the long wait. I will return to give them another chance, but hope to be served and waited on in a much more timely manner!
