Chivonne Hitchens

If you are vegan, let the chef know + he will make you something special. Stellar service. Great food. The Best place to eat in Laurel.

Bill Matt

We went there for dinner on Jan 10, 2018. We always love Abbot's food because they have such a flare for food.

Russell Robinson

Slightly upscale pricing, but food and service were excellent.

Kerriann Beyer

We reserved a room for our family to gather after my grandmother's funeral and I must say this place is very nice. The staff was very friendly and the food was delicious!

Jim Cole

I'm a bit of a Reuben prude... but with the help of the wonderful waitress decided to risk the Turkey Reuben. It is aweome! And the coleslaw side! Not your everyday slaw! This unexpected side-stop to grab a bite is going in the bookmarks!

Paul Morris

The staff, under the guidance of Chef Ryan Cunningham, makes you feel at home while you are dining on great fresh local cuisine. Some of my favorites are the Sunday Night Prime Rib or Crab Cake Special, a three course meal, anything with oysters or clams, or quail. A gem in a small town that is worth the drive from Salisbury.

Cheshire Kat24

Love this place. Great food, a seasonal changing menu that doesn't grow stale, full bar and beautiful views. Waitstaff is friendly and knowledgeable. Great for a date night.


Pricey, but good food. Held a wedding party here and was impressed with the level of service from the staff. Absolutely recommend.

Stevi Saathoff.

Food good, service abysmal.

robert jones

Nice place we go there a good bit , great food

Barbara Lamb

Excellent food, fresh and nicely prepared. The staff was busy but friendly, and the beautiful scenery from the deck helped to make it memorable.

Leah Baltazar

Found this place while on a road trip through Delaware. So happy we stopped here. The service and decode was fabulous. The food was beyond outstanding. We shared the apple butternut squash flat bread. I ordered the bison burger. It was cooked just right, still a little pink and nice and juicy. My friend got the brisket sandwich. It was favorable and tender. If you're looking for a place to stop while traveling through Laurel, I recommend this place for sure.

Carl Peters

Top notch, food and drinks are always great. The bar is nice, somewhat cozy. The deck is great when the weather is right... the only issue I have is the dining room is almost like a cafeteria, no coziness, no sense of privacy, just wide open space. I always preferred Abbott's in Milford for the atmosphere, but, at some point, the food in Laurel became so much better and, now, Milford has closed...

heinz roeder

Very accomodating, food is very good and the service has been excellent each time we come here.

Chuck Cooper

Usually top notch but last time it was very unimpressive. Special were good. Service just okay

Edna Messmer

It's always a good experience at Abbott's Grill. Delicious food and friendly staff ! We had Cajun meatloaf, Salomon, and Not Your Mommas chicken and dumplings. All do good!

Alison Tonge

Our waitress was rushing us from the minute we sat down. Menu says: Vegetarian? Ask your server. -- I asked server and her response "we do not have a vegetarian menu". Ordered a plain salad and it was just mediocre. Server never asked if we were done and just brought check. One of our party wanted dessert to go. Server was visibly irritated. Then told us she was headed out the door because it was "shift change". Probably won't return.

This place used to be so great. Apparently they got a new cook, maybe new kitchen staff too, and I can tell. I’ve given them three chances recently cause I know how good their food CAN and HAS BEEN, but I think I’m done trying. The quality has just consistently gotten worse. Really disappointed :(

Lynne Schwab Schaefer

The setting is very nice on the water, especially at the high tops in bar area. The food was delicious and service was just attentive enough. Very pleasant experience.

Pat Washinowski

We went here for the 1st time. It did not disappoint. The food was amazing. Our server was Lisa. She was funny and engaging. We will definitely go back again. I wish all restaurants were as good as Abbott's on Broad Creek.

Offie Luna

I cannot resist sitting on the deck in the good weather. This is such a lovely restaurant. It is stylish and they have a creative menu and present the food well. I think those things count.

Margaret Van Dyke

Tha atmosphere was very nice and the waiter was wonderful, unfortunately the food was very average. My husband got the lobster and crab imperial and was disappointed, I got the chicken salad and it was good but really just did not seem to be homemade. We were really looking forward to it and will try again.

Brittany Mansfield

Had a nice lunch with my mom. It was very good, peaceful and nice staff.

Dave Schneider

The food was excellent!

Dawn Robinson

Kathy Joseph

Great food?

mandie lembeck

We had a simply terrible experience. This was my first time here and I am quite convinced to never return. I blame it on mismanagement. I have worked in the restraunt business before, so I do understand the stress of everything. However, when you only have 2 chefs and 3 waiters in a FULL house of guests somethings need to be done. For example, call in more staff. I only saw one new cook and one new waiter come in while we waited an hour and a half for our food. The table beside us we assume waited for two hours since they were there before us. We were not attended to well. We had children in our group and not once was an appetizer or even bread on the house was offered to us. The chicken fingers looked nearly burnt, my salmon tacos were...odd. One taco had spice on it. The other had no spice. One taco tasted very burnt. The other there was a lot of salsa (not the sauce) on it. I put my slaw on it to add flavor and bulk to my meal. I had to ask two different waiters 3 times for a cup of water for my child. It was simply a terrible experience. If a restaurant is that busy, then have more staff come in and/or turn guests away! Maybe if you come as a small party of 2 the experience is better, but as a large families group, it is NOT the place to go.

Marc Duncan

My wife and I went to a murder mystery dinner theater here. We had a great time and the food was well prepared and flavourful. I feel they could have used 1 more waiter on the floor for the event. As the night got into full swing, our waitress did a great job, but eventually the service got rather slow. It truly felt like a need for 1 more person. We will definitely be back.

Citizens for Responsible Options

Rocky start. . . :( We went for drinks on a Saturday night (Feb 2014), and the bartender was great. So recommended to family and they went the next day and were treated to inedible, undercooked food. They left, hungry. No one has been back since. Hopefully Abbotts will get their act together. We do miss Georgia House, which was the previous restaurant at that location and was fine. Maybe Gordon Ramsey will come and fix things. . .

Tiffany Benjamin

Specials are always good, great food, service, and lovely atmosphere. I got the Haddock tacos, the breading was on point and it was a perfect proportion. This is such a hidden gem for Laurel!

Bruce Viekman

Enjoyed the Salmon tacos, tasty chicken salad, and Black Bean chili. They were busy, but the service was prompt and attentive. Search BY THE RESTAURANT NAME so you get the right directions!

Jay James

Great food, very well conceived menu

Mary Lynn Huberty

Excellent food. Wonderful staff. Pleasant atmosphere.


Service was slow but steady, although the waiter was rather grumpy and rude towards the end of the evening. Food was good. The banquet room was a bit drafty.

The food was excellent from soup to dessert. Beef and barley soup was quite tasty. Short rib pot roast with brussel sprouts and butternut squash delicious. This was followed by homemade banana walnut cheesecake which was quite unique.

Robert J

I was in last night not knowing what to expect. I have been to this restaurant for their Thanksgiving buffet in their milford location and it was great! But this was my first time ordering from their menu, and let me tell you it was fantastic! Great atmosphere, our waitress Samantha was amazing and the food was remarkable! Samantha went above and beyond to make my date and i happy, she always had a smile on her face, and was extremely polite. My date and i both ordered the fish and chips and it was cooked to perfection! I have nothing but good things to say about our experience and we will definitely be back!

Jal H

Ate there tonight for my Dad's birthday. Everything was sooo good(salmon tacos, crab cake & short rib pot roast). Ryan was amazing & very knowledgeable about the menu and answered all our questions. Would definitely recommend the fried chicken livers

Jason Lee

Always a great meal. We took my grandparents here for mother's day. This was our 8th time to this establishment great everytime.

Robert Riggin

Visually appealing location and views. Aestetically appealing inside and the food was outstanding.

Michele Milway

Loved the food! Prices are a little high but the food us delicious!

Lisa Caudill

Food is great! The cuisine is comprised of different foods that you would not think of putting together! It's just a bit pricey! Don't come for lunch when you only have 45 minutes!

Sammi Jo Davis

It's expensive and not a lot to choose from

Lesley Stayton

Food was good. The band outside was a nice touch

Tom Child

Great food, atmosphere and service.

J Senesi

We had a catered event on site. The room and very view were wonderful. The food was good and the staff attentive.

Barbara Leonard

Great food. Great view. Eat outside if you can.

Caroline Thompson

The food is great here. I love the brisket the best. The deck over the pond is great for kids to feed the geese and fish. My brothers wedding reception was here also and the choices of all the different food was fantastic!

Yo soy Maria Denisse

Super delicious food

Sharon Lane

Angry hostess, poor service. Won't go back.

Michelle Statts

Good food and location

Thomas Goehrig

We stumbled upon Abbott's on Broad Creek on our way home fron the beach! Great food, great atmosphere, and reasonably priced!! It was a great find!! Thanks so much!!

Nicole Cole

We had an amazing meal here. The braised short ribs and euro chicken dishes were delicious, and our old fashioned drinks were very well made.

Bill Ellis

Fine, slightly classy restaurant with offerings that are a mix of standard and off beat. Food is well prepared and served promptly. My pork schnitzel was crispy on the outside and moist inside with a surprising lemony kick. Veggies also are tasty and adventurous. Good selection of craft beers, mostly from nearby breweries.

Jeff White

We love Abbott's Grill because it has the best food and staff of any restaurant on the entire Delmarva peninsula! P.S. we've tried nearly everything... Abbott's Grill is still #1!

Angela McAllister

I am sure that Abbott's is a very nice place. I however was not so impressed with Easter Brunch.

Mike Allabaugh, REALTOR

Great food and atmosphere

Colleen Copeland

What a hidden treasure in Laurel,DE. Beautiful decor. The menu is imaginative and fresh with reasonable prices. Service was excellent .

Derik callaway

The shrimp and grits were amazing.

marge gibson

Great food. Nice view. Good service.

Kaye Norenberg

Wonderful meal on the deck overlooking the creek.

Joshua Howard

I do enjoy coming to this place. Since I live close by, I know the employees. They are very friendly and greet me when I come in every time. The menu isn't too bad, maybe slightly overpriced for what is offered. I am a bit disappointed that they have removed some of their best dishes. Abbott's is still better than the restaurant that used to be there.

Andrea witwer

Excellent crabcakes!

Alisha Carneal

Nice location. Quaint restaurant with good food


Food and service not so good

Douglas Yeich

Good food and service, plus a nice environment.

Karen Scott

First time visiting and I loved it. The service, the food, and the location on the creek all made for a very enjoyable day. I plan to visit there again.

Ron Diamond

Fantastic food always a pleasure to dine there

Stephen Chance

Nice quite environment. They have nicely priced daily specials. Thursday they have trivia and live music on Fridays. Went on the burger night and was surprised at size and taste of the burger. Definitely a favorite new to place to go. Will be back!

Brian Hughes

I've been here a few times while traveling for business. The food is usually good, and the beer selection is pretty great especially considering most places in this area. However, I've had a few minor issues with service, so I'm giving it 4 stars.

Judy Hagemann

Food was decent , service okay but I asked for water without straw but as you can see came with straw. Nice location.

Linda Parrott

Food was great as well as the service

Joyce Nolen

Pricey for what we got. Was craving fried oysters and they were sold out - Bummer! Limited menu, so check it on-line to see what they have as it changes with the season and local availability. Was there on Sunday, early afternoon. There were a couple of tables having lunch, with only 1 server. So things were slow, should have had little more attention. Had to ask for chips & sauce which is a gratuius pacifier while enjoying pre-dinner drinks, by the time they were delivered, our lunch was served. The group of 5 were generally disappointed.

Bruce Yoder

Great selection of high quality and unique food from the Delmarva Peninsula. As someone who grew up in Sussex County, it is definitely one of the best restaurants in the area.

Linda Brangenberg

Delicious, fresh, seasonal items on their imaginative menu. We enjoy stopping for lunch whenever we are in the area, which is not often enough. Hats off to the Chef.

Lori Hitchens

Had Crab cake; fair.

Donna Leto

Food and service was out standing.

Strickly Biz

The buffalo ranch chicken sandwich is great

Ron Dickerson

Good food good service

Bryan Stone

Watching elmo until they bring the food. 1st time. Will be back

Aaron Rapp

Amazing food

Cyber Terrapin

OK need more selection and faster service.

Susann Schemm

Way delicious lunch. Sour cheery Martini was extra nice.

Tom Hennessey

Nothing special food was just ok

Tara Smack

Always my favorite place to eat

Patrick Corcoran

The proprietors care about their patrons.

Billie Jo Warrington

Food was good, portions were generous, and menu was reasonably priced, however, service was horrible. Our server Susan was friendly, however, not at all attentive. After waiting a lengthy time for our salads (and that's after we finally asked for them), she had forgotten one. She still never brought it and we had to "wave down" the bartender who was helping out to get it. Anything we wanted or needed, we had to "wave down" the bartender. We were only checked on once for drinks and most of the other staff served the food. The restaurant wasn't busy and what should have been a 1 hour dining experience turned into 2.

Tanya D.

Paula, the best bartender in Laurel, was very friendly, attentive and her recommendations for food were on point. The ambiance of Abbott's is classy on the low key side of things for a small town. Monday is burger night and their burgers are handmade & delicious. Will go again.

Michael Lewis

The restaurant exceeded my expectations by far! Most diners are all the same in the plain Jane food taste. But the food here has awesome flavor! I actually ate here 2 days in a row and chose a different meal both times because I was curious if it was just a one day one type of food thing or if the food in general was good and to my surprise, it was very good both times! Kudos to Abbott's!

Alon D

Better than expected. Thought it was expensive for pub food. Turned out it was inexpensive for quality locally sourced food

Joann Beard

Excellent Food and Service

Edward Roche

Always good and not over priced. Great staff.

beth Dayton

Good food and service!


Stopped by for lunch on our way back to Jersey when I googled good places to eat near me- What a pleasant surprise. I ordered the heirloom tomato and watermelon Caprese salad and Summer Sangria- perfect choice for a summer afternoon. Hubby ordered a burger with caramelized onions, bacon and cheese with French fries. The burger was juicy and toppings were a nice combination of flavors. French fries are to die for! Service was excellent and new outdoor deck with view of the geese topped off a pleasant experience.

Jessica Hanyok

Delicious food, great atmosphere and helpful staff.

Joseph Schweizer

Had the Taco special. Everything about this establishment is positive. 4 out of 5 because the food was not too hot when served. (By the way, delicious.) That is not enough to keep me away. Going back for the Monday Burger deal real soon.

Cathi Green

It was really nice. Sat on their deck, friendly staff.

Steve Schwinn

Good place for a meal. Not the fastest service.

Richard Bennett

Small out of the way but we'll worth the time. Friendly good food, we had a great time.


Jim Kepka

This place is a Must-Visit if you are in the area! The food is top-notch. ..fine, casual dining

Branden Hudson

Great experience and food

Paul Davis

Stopped for a drink only. Not a great selection of craft beer, maybe 6 or 7. We sat in the bar even though there was a nice deck outside it was 92 degrees. Also, the bars AC wasn't working well, it was a good 10 to 15 degrees warmer than the restaurant. Service was fine.

Wendy prettyman

Food is awesome, service is great and the "chips" are delicious!

B Wasden

Excellent craft beer selection (draft) with monthly tap takeovers. Superb service and food and a view of Broad Creek to match.

dewitt mcintyre

Great band. Stone Jack Ballers. Good music good food good times

Susan Martin

Friendly staff. Nice place.

Jim Lawn

Food was great, svc was excellent

WILL Kernodle

Let's start with the restaurant itself. Very nice location on the creek. Excellent views with a very large deck outdoors. The Food: Flavors are excellent, nice choices but plateing needs work and be refined. Trying to do too much when flavors speak for themselves. The service: very attentive, well majored, very friendly and on time to the table.

connie villegas

We love Abbotts. Weather permitting eating out side is best. The food and appetizers are wonderful.
