Freemason Abbey Restaurant Review

: The stone exterior and vaulted ceilings of this century-old former church provide a unique atmosphere in which to enjoy some satisfying American favorites, such as whole Atlantic lobsters, prime rib, roasted baby-back ribs, fan tailed shrimp and crab cakes. 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 and vegetarian menus are available, too, and check out specials such as grilled mahi. But heaven forbid you skip dessert with the likes of homemade apricot brandy bread pudding tempting you. Cheerful and efficient staff make it a fine place for business luncheons and other group gatherings as well as a regular stop on tours in and around the historic Freemason District.
