    The food was well prepared, as neither the oysters nor shrimp were overcooked. My blackened catfish was light flaky and delicious. Even the okra was acceptable, as it was on the dry side absent the objectionable mucous. Our waitress Ashley, was very attentive and even got my husband’s jokes. The new owners have created a comfortable place to dine and to have drinks in small and large groups. They’ve managed to fill a cavernous building so that it feels cozy.

    Park Avenue has to be one of the most sought after reservations in Aiken. Lunch there last week, and dinner tonight were both fantastic ! The appetizers, she crab soup (served extra hot ) and entres were over the top ! Somebody must be doing something right at Park Avenue because there’s nothing like it around!

    This was our 5th visit to this restaurant and once again we were not disappointed. The food was outstanding in flavor and quality. Always served hot and in the right proportions. The raw oysters were very good and worth the price if you enjoy them. The service was excellent and timely.

    I highly recommend Park Avenue Oyster Bar & Grill for their excellent food, service and atmosphere. They have quickly made a great impression in Aiken within just the short amount of time they have been open. I have gone in for just a cocktail, dined for lunch and dinner and attended a private party held upstairs in a spacious/elegant large room complete with a full bar. It is in this area where they also have live entertainment on the weekend. As someone who grew up in Aiken, I am very glad this establishment decided to settle in downtown Aiken! Robert

    It was all very good. The only sticking point was that their website says that Happy Hour is from 4-6, and they show their Happy Hour menu. We thought the full Happy Hour menu would be available during those hours. I checked later and the site states that the “Handhelds” are available until 5pm (but it isn’t obviously stated). I think it’s confusing, and from the conversations around me at other tables I think other people find it confusing too. If you state that that something is part of the Happy Hour menu, but then casually place a caveat that something isn’t after a certain point isn’t right. Still, my Shrimp and Grits were really good.

    Our server was outstanding! She was knowledgeable abt the specials, preferred choices, cocktail choices, and she kept up a wonderful edgy banter with us! Would definitely come back just to see her! The only negative - from my own perspective - is that the portion size of my dinner was fairly small in comparison to the price. I understand that many costs are going up in the hospitality industry, but if I had to choose an issue that would be it!

    Being that it was cold out, we had to wear coats to the restaurant. We did not have any place to hang our coats and we were seated in only a 2 person booth. We asked to be switched to another table with more room, but were told those were for or more people. Shortly after that conversation, a couple was placed in a 3 person booth.

    Pros: Restaurant is beautifully located in the heart of downtown Aiken. The ambiance upscale coastal. Bar is beautiful with wide variety of spirits. Oysters were delicious as was the key lime pie. Cons: Hostess seemed less than pleased to be at work, waitress seemed mentally occupied and did not know what oysters were available or if the catfish was wild caught or farm raised. Recommend and will be back again.
