This place is amazing! I went here for the first time and was blown away by their food and drink choices - farm fresh quality in an unexpectedly nice atmosphere. Don't wait, just go.

Stopped here for brunch. The food is all locally sourced so their menu changes weekly. Try the mac and cheese. it is amazing! Also had the challah french toast which was so good. The drinks are great as well. They have an awesome draft list with Hill Farmstead beer. A great perk.

The beer list is as good as it gets. The atmosphere is fun and comfortable. The food menu is interesting. My most recent meal was a bit overspiced, next time I'll stick with the basics. Like some of the critical reviews state, the servers could be more attentive.

Always love going to the Abbey. I get to Worcester a handful of times a year and it's a treat to go to Armsby. Fabulous beer selection, always love their cheese plates. A favorite spot!

Prob one of the better bars or one of the best ones in the Worcester area that's been there for a while and has been consistently good. Very nice ambiance inside with comfy couches by the window. It looked bigger inside that what I'd imagined or compared to my first experience. There's plenty of tables for groups. In the summer,... More

We had a very long evening ahead of us. My son's band just finished playing at the Palladium and they wanted to watch more bands. I wanted to take the teens both in the band and and those who came with us to watch the band, out to dinner. We walked to this restaurant. No reservation (though please make them)... More

This place is a real Worcester Gem. I live in town and love to entertain my guests. I own an international business located here. Deb and I love this place. Even the dishwasher, Mike, is one of the most helpful employees they have. Food is great, service wonderful and the atmosphere is pure New England. Can'y go wrong.
