    Pluses, it's electric--DJ playing upbeat music, tons of smiles, heads bobbing--family cookout or sorority day-party vibes. You expect an impromptu line dance at any moment. It's eclectic--backroom speakeasy meets trendy bistro. The wait staff is friendly and engaging, bartenders bounce on beat as they mix cocktails. The menu is chef-inspired American-Latin-Mediterranean fusion but not fussy. A few snags: The restaurant the decor is worn. The back of my daughter's chair was separating, we were indoors but sat at a weathered picnic table (with an umbrella hole). There's a broken panel in the men's room and some repairs around the restaurant were made with duct tape. The menus are faded, flimsy, wrinkled paper copies. It took over an hour to get our food. We were seated at 2:30, ordered and got drinks within 15 minutes but our meal didn't arrive until 3:52. Other guests who arrived after us were served before us. Our server acknowledged the lengthy wait but offered no explanation, accommodation, or apology. The food was lackluster. A $24 omelet should be delectable. Mine was mushy and bland. The fried chicken was well-seasoned but dry. The website touts vegan options but there aren't any on the menu. Overall, it's a fun little restaurant with a fantastic outdoor space. I recommend The Avenue for weekend drinks and pub food, not sit-down brunch or dinner.

    Went for brunch. They were out of coffee at 11:30 am. It took forever to order and over an hour to receive our food. The staff are inattentive and people had to wave them down to get their attention. They were out of items on the menu which they did not note anywhere or mention until we were ordering those items. The ambience is just weeeeird. It feels more like a nightclub than a restaurant/bar. They have a live DJ and blast music so loud you will not be able to have a conversation. I would not revisit.

    Party of three for Sunday brunch. One of us had shrimp & grits, which he enjoyed. Another had a vegetable omelette, and I had an omelette with crab & shrimp. The omelettes were good, with fluffy eggs, and plenty of filling. The potatoes they were served with, though, were not all fully cooked. One of us ordered coffee, and the coffee that was brought out had obviously been sitting in the coffeepot far too long and shouldn't have been served to anyone. So, a few good points, but overall a disappointing experience. I would say that the establishment really didn't seem to be trying very hard. Service and ambiance were not actively offputting, more like indifferent.

    We made reservations. The parking was easy and led us right into the restaurant from the lot. The manager and staff was extremely attentive and got us seated right away. The salmon is delicious with the string beans. The chicken wing appetizer with the different sauces is incredible. The waiter we had was very down to earth and fun to talk to. The only issue was the Old Fashion drink my friend got. They took it right off the bill. The vibe was everything as soon as we stepped in and the music was going. Very lively place. I will be back.

    Service was unhelpful. Could not get simple items like salt and hot sauce. Temperature too cold. Very loud atmosphere music doesn’t help. (Add clothes to ceiling to muffle noise). Food was very good, tasty and interesting. Forced 20% tip is bad policy. Waiter did listen well to our concerns, very useful.

    I cannot say enough about how great the service and staff were at Avenue Kitchen. The food wasn’t bad, but a bit pricey for the quality although our server did tell us they were still working on getting the kinks out. The music and vibe overall was great and we had a lot of fun!

    Sat for 30 minutes with no menus given to us before I had to get the attention of the host/server who sat us. We were ignored and even glanced at for the entire time we sat looking around with no one attending to us. With a reservation in for a date night. Ambience was nice and so was the food but the service and sitting for that long while being ignored and glanced at really made the entire experience poor.

    Chicken and Waffles, GREAT. Most places have dry breast meat or chicken strips. This place had two large, perfectly fried pieces of meat, a leg and a breast. I've had it before and it is still just as great. The staff is friendly and courteous. It's my go to place for an after 11 brunch.

    We arrived for our reservation at 8 and was told there would be a 45 minute wait. I asked to be called when the table was ready they called at 9:35!!!!!! Good thing an amazing restaurant down the street could accommodate us or the night would have been a bust. Don’t take reservations if you can’t seat people. It wasn’t just us there was another couple with a reservation that wasn’t seated as well.

    The food was excellent, but the service left something to be desired. I would go again, but not have high expectations for service level. BTW, gratuity is added into the check automatically, so I’m not sure if that’s why service was lacking.

    Our server had a bad attitude. My salmon fillet was the last to come out, after lamb chops and the NY filet, and was still cold. My side of veggies was piping hot though. Mexican street corn was charred but cold through the middle. The strawberry lemonade was ALL strawberry purée. Someone came to step in for the manager at our request and we were able to settle the check.

    Brought some family from out of town on a Saturday night. Surprised that the place was so empty at 8:30 pm. The music was good, so were the drinks. It seemed like they were short-staffed, we did a lot of waiting for pretty much everything. One of the people in our party ordered the burger. It came out medium rare, when he wanted well done. was completely pink. He sent it back and it took so long but he really enjoyed the finished product. The wings, fries and brisket tacos were good. The fried chicken sandwich was dry. The steak entree was delicious and a great deal with 2 sides and a soup or salad but the Mac and cheese was not good at all. I’ve had better experiences here so I’m willing to keep trying.

    It was difficult to get an immediate reservation at other places in the area. We were pleasantly surprised, as we got an immediate reservation on open table that seated 5. The food was also better than expected. My husband loved the shrimp and grits and portion sizes were just enough. Overall, the experience was excellent.
