Horrible

They must be going downhill. Horrible food- disgusting and they would not exchange it! Overcharged, dated decor and just bad customer service! We will never go back~ too bad a better restaurant couldn't take over the cool building!

Great service, extremely reasonable prices—I was very surprised. I cannot recommend Sunday brunch here strongly enough. Please do give it a try at least once!

We also recommend the homemade artichoke dip and crab dip. Of course, others are religious when it comes to the she crab soup. Gluten-free...

The Freemason Abbey Restaurant might be the most fun you've ever had in church.

The Scene:
Freemason Abbey is housed in a neo-Victorian church at the edge of downtown. Tables one flight up in the alcove overlook the main dining area for a great view without a...

My first 'church-restaurant

You are going for the location and neighborhood. We had lunch. She had the lobster special with the 'she-crab' soup. I had the shrimp on orzo rice. The were both good but not the best we have had. The building is a trip. An old church complete with a choir loft and arched windows. They have an interesting beer selection...
