Overall it is a nice place to eat and the food is delicious, though the value is hard to justify. There are other eateries within walking distance that are just as good and can be had for less money. I would say it is a treat, but I also think that for a bit more money other restaurants should be considered. All in all, delicious, but in this middle ground area.

Fabulous service and delicious food! It was a bit chilly inside but it was crowded at the hour we went and I imagine more people would heat the room up.

First time here so we tried a variety of plates. Definite highlight are the brisket and shrimp tacos. Yum! Fun, casual atmosphere and great service. Solid local spot for a night out.

I had made a reservation for 4 people at 5:30. When we arrived we were told that there was no seating inside and that we could eat outside or wait for inside seating to become available. The whole point of having a reservation is so that table is purposefully set aside in anticipation of your arrival. We sat outside, our waitress took our order, then came back 10 minutes later asking to go over our order again. Even though she wrote it down the first time there were several items not written down that we had to tell her a 2nd time. It was over 10 minutes since we placed a simple drink order and she had not even put that order in. Since all we had received in 25 minutes was water our entire party left and went to another establishment.

Food was delicious! We were there on a Wednesday evening just before a comedy set which started at 815. The music was very energetic but pretty loud, we had to yell at each other across the table. A fun vibe, but I do wish we realized the noise level before sitting down.

I thought the caesar salad was outstanding..the tune poke needed wasabi...
I never heard of not having mustard which made the hamburger less appealing

This was the first time I've visited The Avenue Kitchen. I was looking through Open Table as well as they had a good sized group of patrons sitting outside. Our service was great and the Watermelon Slushy had a good amount of liquor in it (plus-plus). My companion had the Burger and I had the Fried Chicken Entre. The chicken was seasoned well. I could most definitely offer a better recipe for the Mac & Cheese.

We enjoyed our visit. Most like will return again soon.

I heard about this place about an hour before I decided to make a reservation! The vibe is everything here! On a Thursday night with a DJ it was the perfect dinner date with my bestie! The food was delish! I had the AKB fried chicken and my friend had the steak special! Presentation was amazing but the taste was ahhh-mazing! Drinks were pretty good too! Definitely will be back!

Great place but understaffed. There was only one server for the entire outdoor patio. Also, the crab cakes had very little lump meat.

Went on a Monday and it was lively and busy throughout the evening. We both enjoyed outstanding cocktails: Thug Passion. The burger, fries, and Caesar salad were all delicious but the roasted mushroom tacos were outstanding! I almost didn't order them as there was no other description, but it was all of the other ingredients that put this dish over the top!

The food was just okay. A bit disappointed because I’ve read great reviews about how the food was so yummy and I didn’t really Think that it was that good however everyone’s taste buds are different so to each their own. It’s a really cute restaurant though love the ambience the drinks were decent. This is not a restaurant I’ll be running back to. However I will definitely keep it on my radar for the near future.

Limited menu which I assume is a covid thing. Service was great. Bartender was very friendly. Portions are huge. Had to box up my entree since the apps and salad were a meal themselves. Ask for the Brussel sprouts. They aren’t on the menu but can be made. Biggest Brussels sprouts I’ve ever seen.

Excellent entrees (rockfish and salmon) and large tasy salads. Great jalepeno corn bread but you have to order it as there is no bread service, and we ordered ours late and it arrived at the end of the meal. Friendly casual diverse place.

I was pretty disappointed with our visit. I had been looking forward to checking out this spot for a while and restaurant week seemed like the perfect time to visit! Even with a reservation we still had to wait for 30 minutes for our table. Cocktails were tasty but a little too sweet. After waiting for our table we were told they were no longer participating in restaurant week because the ticket system messed up the orders coming into the kitchen. Pretty bummed that we couldn't try a variety of things. Food took a long time (but we are understanding that the service/food industry is struggling right now so we expected this). Food was just ok, nothing special. They were out of multiple items, fried green tomatoes and ice cream sandwiches. We ordered 2 ice cream sandwiches only to be told they only had one left. Cookies for the ice cream sandwich were hard and inedible. Our reservations were for 6:30 and we did not pay our check until 9:15. Pretty disappointed and would not come back.

We were seated before our reservation time which started out great.
We ordered our food around 830 and didn't receive it until 9:50pm and not only did they NOT bring everything we ordered but it was because it had been sitting. No water refills and no one really checked on us until we started asking about our food. I always go here for brunch and never had an issue...not sure what happened last night but they dropped the ball

I really loved the atmosphere and the vibe. I was very disappointed by the food though. I ordered the crab cake because they were out of salmon and I didn’t really enjoy it. I rarely ever leave bad reviews but I just want to save someone the time and money because I was a little upset.
