    Memories of a life time!! We had our wedding and ceremony at the Abbey Grill this past year and want to thank Andrew and the staff for a beautiful day and an amazing event.
    The food was delicious and served as a buffet so we could go up for extra helpings, the food was really out of this world. The ceremony was beautiful under a stained glass - it was amazing! The staff did a wonderful job and the bartenders handled both families who definitely could drink with ease. The venue is outstanding. The whole experience was easy and very smooth dealing with Andrew and the Chef to customize our menu. We have referred The Abbey to a bunch of our friends who are engaged!
