I hate to write a review of my favorite local restaurant because it's already too busy to get a table most nights, and they don't take reservations after 6. Please, stay home, and don't visit to have the best burger on the north shore, or the best Asian food in the midwest, or the best fish in Illinois, or the... More

We have been going to Abigail's from the time it opened and unlike most restaurants, the quality never flags. The cuisine is American eclectic with small starters, slightly larger offerings, and full entrees. Open for lunch and dinner, with a small window (5:00 to 6:00) during which a reservation could be made. After 6:00, a waiting list is used. The... More

Be sure to make a reservation in the first hour if you don't want to wait. We arrived early and got the last open table. Service was prompt and friendly. Food is outstanding. Everything is made fresh. Perfect date night.

Have been a number of times for lunch and dinner. Have always enjoyed our meals, especially the salads at lunch and the burgers at night. Good service. Wish we could make dinner reservations.

Our group of 3 ended up eating 5 small plates, 3 entrees, and a dessert. The quality was unbelievable for the price and the service was very good. Yes some would call it loud but I would call it lively. A must return.

This is a neighborhood restaurant that has great food. The service is good, but it's too noisy. I would recommend it for a special lunch

Literally nothing bad to say. From the moment we got there the service was perfect. The Moscow mule (peach) was very tasty and the biscuits that they gave us were good as well. We ordered the brussel sprouts and we were amazed. A little salty but crispy with a delicious flavor. We were mildly concerned with the idea of caramel... More

We have moved out of state and how I have missed this place! We arrived for a weekday lunch WITH a reservation, three girlfriends. We were immediately seated. Reservations are a must at this cutey cute little place. It was a beautiful fall day and we decided to sit inside as it was just a little chilly. We all started... More
