Bring a baby to a bar? Yes! The Abbey has an upscale pub atmosphere and a is very kid-friendly pub at that, with a perfect balance of just loud enough to drown out most general kiddie noise, but not so noisy that it scares your little ones or inhibits normal conversation. Their creative twists on many comfort food favorites are complimented by a great selection of beers, a decent wine list and pretty hefty scotch selection for grown ups. On nice days, they have 4-ish tables outside in perfect view of the passing Green Line trains for the budding train conductors in your world.
Great. They offer up high chairs and kiddie cups before you even have to ask as this kid-friendly restaurant.
The menu changes seasonally, and there’s usually at least one addition to the menu daily as well as a special flatbread. Favorite menu standards include:
- Bison Bolognese (spicy and delicious)
- Grass Fed Hangar Steak
- Truffle fries
There’s no official kids menu, but they have kid-friendly pub fare like pasta, pizza/flatbreads and burgers and there is often something on the appetizers/starters list suitable for the younger set. Ask your server for a list of what they can and can’t tweak for the kiddos.

Valet is available at the Chinese restaurant next door if you find yourself in a bind. You can also try turning off the main drag to one of the nearby side streets—many don’t have meters, but remember to observe Brookline’s 2 hour parking limits to avoid a ticket.
