I had a great burger, excellent fries and a very good tap beer. The place has lots of parking but the outside dining did not work well on a cooler day. There was no crowd on a Friday lunch at 1.

Love this place because of the fabulous food and friendly staff. Our only disappointment is the scarcity of outdoor seating. We made a reservation and requested an outdoor table but had to sit inside due to lack of availability outside. Other people appeared to be in the same situation. Hope they can fix this because it’s otherwise a great place!

I describe Proper as an upscale brew pub, with both better food and better beer than most others. The superb service is what made this three-hour lunch with a friend from out of town so great, plus I'd forgotten how good Proper beers are! I was a little surprised that the Spicy Chicken Sandwich was some kind of ground chicken rather than a chicken breast, but the taste was very good anyway. My wife's BLT was good too. We sat outside for three hours on a beautiful afternoon and had just the right amount of attention; the water was refilled frequently, and our server was nearby often enough for us to order additional food items and another beer.

Great, casual atmosphere, very friendly staff-- our party size kept changing, and didn't want the high-top seating they had reserved for us. They quickly and pleasantly accommodated us by switching to lower tables and chairs. Food choices were unique, well prepared and hot! Will definitely return!

Waited very long time to be greeted once seated (excess of 15 minutes). Waiter was very cordial but speed of service only improved marginally. Thankfully the food was delicious and well-priced. Perhaps a subsequent visit would be better.

One of the best veggie burgers I've ever had -- it held together throughout, which is not typical. And it was tasty. The fries were great and my husband's cold cantaloupe soup was quite tasty and perfect for the hot day. He wasn't enthralled with the kale chicken salad because it was, as its name implies, kale and chicken, and not much else, but it was our waitress's favorite so if you like kale I'm sure you'd like it. But if you want a multi-ingredient salad, not so much.

The food was amazing and the primary reason I'll be back. The service was awful. Twice I had to ask for a drink multiple times before it was brought out despite the rest of my group (8 others) getting their drinks right away.

We have visited this, one of my favorite restaurants, on both Mother’s Day and Father’s Day this year. Somehow they seemed completely overwhelmed on both of these days. We had a 10:15 reservation and the manager/hostess was still printing menus. The hostess then scolded the waiting customers for “lining up” incorrectly. We were pointed to our table, not sat. The food also took 45 minutes to arrive after ordering.

Our server was awesome. The food was good as always but again at one point the same manager came and literally grabbed the water bottles off of our table without saying anything. No offense but I feel like she must have experience managing a village inn, not a place like this. Her job is to make customers feel comfortable and both times she’s done the exact opposite. She acted like we and the other customers celebrating Father’s Day, were bugging her.

Great place, apparently not for days like those. We won’t be back.

Great Brunch Menu with choices available to satisfy our non meat eaters as well as carnivores too- savory and sweet inventive options. Good value for the price which was under $15 per person. Service Could have been better, as we had to ask for our coffee 3 times before it was brought. Will go back

I love the whole feel here! The ambiance was perfect, the service was great! My daughter and I went there for an early dinner. We sat outside and it was so nice!!!! It was quiet and peaceful! The service here has always been spot on every time I have been! Even the host is very warm and friendly! The frites here are the best ever! We ordered these as an appetizer!! I don’t eat fries very often, I will only eat them when they are perfect! These are the best!!! So for me this is the perfect place to go early, around 5ish when it’s not that busy yet, sit outside and just enjoy your company, the outside beauty and of course some drinks! Oh and I tried two samples of their sour beers! They were so good!! Perfect for being outside in great weather!!

We like the menu at Avenue's Proper, but have yet to have a good experience with the service. The host behaved like a petulant super model. She did not smile or greet us, and when we gave our name for our reservation she got into a debate with a coworker about which table we were to have. This went on for at least two minutes, with the two of standing and listening to this table debate wondering the host even remembered we were there.
We have had this type of thing happen many times at Proper. Good food, good beer, terrible service.

Overall I would say that we enjoyed our meal at Avenues Proper. A couple of people ordered the steak and it was about on par with its price point. ($25) The cauliflower tacos and beet salad were highlights along with the burger. Get the seasonal pickles as well, really good.

Multiple excellent food options (vegetarian, sandwiches, salmon, steak) for essentially any/ every palate, prepared creatively and served efficiently. Locally brewed beer adds to the fun. Prices are very reasonable.

Food was great as always, unfortunately our waiter seemed to forget about us entirely. Had to ask for water three times and finally got water after about 30 minutes. He also dropped the bill before we were even done ordering another drink. I told him I’d be happy to pay the bill, but would like more drinks. I paid the bill and tipped him 20%, so to be completely ignored after that is kind of a slap in the face. It’s never fun going out and feeling like your server ignores you.

Best place for lunch!! I made a reservation last minute, hoping that we could get in. We were going to an early lunch, and what a great place Avenues Proper was!!! In entering you have a wonderful ambiance with the design of the restaurant and the charming employees!! Everyone was so pleasant and happy, which always makes my experience better! The food was so delicious!! I was with my very picky teenage son, who was not happy to be going to a new restaurant, and he was sooo impressed with his food that he didn’t even want to share it with me!! He had the ham and cheese sandwich with fries, and he wouldn’t allow me to taste his sandwich, but I did try some fries and WOW!!! I will be back this weekend for the fish and chips to have more of those fries and their sauce!! I had the cauliflower tacos, as I was trying to eat healthy, and I was amazed at how great they were!!! They had a wonderful flavor!!! I’m excited to take my vegetarian friends there to try them!! All in all, I love it and will be back often!!

As always, food and service were top notch. Beer is outstanding, usually get the Proper, but also a big fan of the Irish Red Stout "nitro". Set reservation and made a note that we needed a wheelchair accessible table. The hostess saw is coming up to the door, came out to meet us and already had an easily accessible table ready and waiting. At times, some restaurants treat the disabled as if they are a chore. We felt welcomed and eager to earn our repeat dollars. Highly recommend this place!
