This is a true hidden gem!!!! The food was flavorful and plentiful. The drinks were out of this world. I had the shrimp risotto, which melted in my mouth. My girlfriend had the pasta Julian 😋. The restaurant was nicely decorated and the staff was super attentive and entertaining!!

The Single worst dining experience in 40 years!
We were one of two occupied tables at 7:30 on a Saturday. (I should have heeded the danger signal)
Despite being the only occupied table when our food was delivered, every dish was room temperature. EVERY dish. Baked potato, mashed potato, asparagus.
Our shrimp cocktail had the consistency of oatmeal. One bite, I was done.
Our $120.00 Porter house was served luke warm. The plate had cooled. The residue around the edge of the plate was crusted on. I believe that this steak was cooked earlier in the day and microwaved before being brought to our table. You know how you get a gray liguid in microwaved steak, our entire T-bone had it. And it was still not hot!

First time dining experience here and it was awesome! Friendly service, great food prepared in a innovative way and a starting plate of cheese and olives with our bread basket was a welcome surprise. The appetizers and entrees were sensational and the price tag very reasonable!

Great food, amazing ambiance. The staff was friendly and came to refill our beverages. Asked if we wanted more bread. Couldn’t have asked for a better evening.

We've eaten in many steakhouses, and most of them tend to have a "stuffy" atmosphere. Abba's has a relaxed, bistro-like feel about it that we found refreshing. The food was excellent. Every item has Abba's own spin, and everything worked. We had the very large porterhouse. It rivaled any steakhouse and surpassed some in its seasoning and presentation. The wedge had an unusually tasty dressing that made it distinctive and delicious. The french onion soup had a depth of flavor we hadn't experienced before. The creamed spinach was a new kind of enjoyable, and the hash browns were perfectly prepared. Our server, Stacy, was a joy to work with and made our Valentine's evening out a night to remember. Highly recommended!

The food was excellent, the only issue I had was when my husband ordered the marinated skirt steak the waitress did not tell us that it came with mashed potatoes, so he ordered the steak house hash browns (they are excellent) and I ordered sweet potato fries with my filet so we had 3 servings of potatoes- he would have said no mashed potatoes. I feel the waitress should have let us know
