Drinks was good. Great selection of drinks. Services was good.

Always a blast. One minor downside for old timers like me is that the music is typically really loud. But the talent is always top notch, so if you don't mind rocking a pair of custom ear plugs like I do then definitely put Abilene on your to-do list. Great bar selection, great service.

Everything about this gem is perfect. Tucked away in the city is the best music, best atmosphere, and absolutely amazing. When you need a music fix, this is the place to be. It's Rochester's hidden little Rock-a-Billy gem

Must stop for real Americana music. Small stage tight space & bar noise . Early birds get rewarded!

Kevin Harvey

I love this venue, what can we say? It’s the coolest Honkytonk/serious listening room around for hundreds of miles.

For my first show at the Abilene, my wife and I went to see Fred Eaglesmith & Tif Ginn.The Abilene makes every show a house concert. It is a great venue to see a band/artist.
