We were never asked if we wanted drinks, so we decided "Fine, water will do". I had the buffet lunch, it was horrendous! The meatballs were less than room temperature, the roasted chicken was only room temperature, the fried foods were dark and horrible. My...More

Abigail's was recommended to us and the food was generally good. However, my wife's salad had way too much iceberg lettuce hearts and "white" chunks to be enjoyable. Her haddock, on the other hand, was excellent. The homemade soup we both had with the meal...More

The map from Google shows Abigail's north of US 20 on NY 414. This is mistaken. Abigail's is adjacent to the Microtel on US 20. Additionally, either both are in Waterloo or both are in Seneca Falls but it is hard for the more easterly...More

Abigail's is a long-time staple in this beautiful town of Seneca Falls. It's well known for his lunch buffet and delicious vast menu choices. The atmosphere is very casual, warm and cozy, with a staff that is always pleasant, with top-notch service.
