The food overall was wonderful. A few items of note: The onion soup was very flavorful and notably not overly salty, as is often the case. The Caesar salad was not overly dressed, another frequent problem elsewhere. My scallops had perhaps the most beautiful browning I've ever seen and were really delicious. I even enjoyed the accompanying green beans, eagerly consuming them even though they are usually not my favorite vegetable. My only minor disappointment was that the caramelized topping on the creme brûlée was very thick and hard to chew and made it difficult to enjoy alongside the wonderfully creamy consistency of the rest of the desert.

A good neighborhood steakhouse with very reasonable prices. Tough to rate because while there was nothing to complain about, there was nothing to rave about. Shrimp cocktail was okay and shrimp were cooked properly, but at least 1 size smaller than a typical high end steakhouse -- there were 7 however. Opted for filet with oscar topping. Came with salad -- good Caesar -- and a side. But should have skipped the oscar as the crabmeat wasn't lump -- not worth the $9 upcharge. Good dessert, reasonably priced drinks and wine. No sticker shock, but maybe you get what you pay for.

Our Mother's Day meal for 5 was a mixed bag. I really liked our server, but she disappeared for long stretches which meant several issues during our meal were hard to address. The flavors of the food were mostly good, but several execution issues in the kitchen left us disappointed. It started with a bread course that didn't arrive until right before the meal and continued with prep issues in the entrees. These included overcooked shrimp (refired and not a lot better after), slightly overcooked steak (not refired), and tough, inedible brussel sprouts (they offered to replace but we declined).

The location was well appointed and the chairs were very comfortable, but the noise level in the restaurant made conversation extremely difficult. Due to the holiday, it was a packed house and things did reach a more tolerant level as the placed emptied out towards the end of our meal.

High points for me were a very nice Tavern salad that came included with the entree, delicious rolls (when they finally arrived), and a willingness to meet the customization demands of several of our party without skipping a beat. I can see where someone might have a better experience, perhaps on a less busy day, but ours was an experience I wouldn't repeat.

This was our first time at The Avenue for brunch. I ordered the short rib hash and my husband ordered the chicken and gravy over biscuits. Both meals were delicious and the serving size was huge. We would definitely return and order both entrees again!

We decided to go to The Avenue to celebrate Mother’s Day. We noticed our waiter providing better care to those drinking alcohol. Our glasses were continuously empty, were not given rolls, or asked if we wanted pepper on our food. We will most likely not be coming back.

The steak was wayyyyy undercooked. I ordered medium and it was definitely med-rare at MOST. My mashed potatoes were room temperature. The salad was good, we all loved the dressing. We had Old Fashioneds for our cocktail and it was very weak. If you get it "on the rocks" it is regular restaurant ice chips, {no large ice square or ball to prevent the drink from watering down), it started out weak and as ice melted it was even worse. The cheesecake was good and seemed very fresh. We had reservations and were still sat at a small table closest to the kitchen. The atmosphere was no better to us than a chain like Applebees. For the price and food not being hot or cooked to order I would not recommend the Tavern.

Our second visit and the food was excellent as usual for CM restaurants. Our steaks were cooked perfectly and the creamed spinach is amazing. The disappointment was the service this time. We were not seated until 25 minutes past our reservation time. Then our waiter seemed to keep disappearing. While I don't like to be rushed, our dinner was almost 2 hours long. And the bartender made a mistake with my old fashioned....it was way too sweet and not at all like the ones from a previous visit. My fault for not sending it back.

My wife & I dine frequently at the Avenue in Grandview (and Dublin.) She usually gets the
filet and I almost always get the Rib-eye. Always good. Last Wednesday, before going to the
theatre for Hello Dolly, we dined in Grandview and our server was Owen.
Owen has never served us before and was delighted to tell us about the "Chocolate shake" for
new employees. In fact, he said he himself has been honored to tell the story to a newbie.
See again, soon.

Usually I give an A+ to The Avenue. Not tonight. Granted, it was very busy w graduation groups, but still. And thank you for complimentary graduation desserts. It’s little things that irritated me tonight, but they don’t go unnoticed at. CM restaurant.
—No offer of fresh ground pepper at our table,
—Which May have helped pep up the very bland & disappointing crab/avocado salad. Really? A plate full of lettuce with a few radishes????
—asked for a second plate of rolls three times...never materialized.
—Brussels sprouts way over salted
—upon checkout & running my credit card, waiter brought a final receipt, but not the one on which to leave a tip & total out my order. A member of my party had to get up & physically track the waiter down so that I was able to leave a tip...kind of ironic!

The manager, Amanda Hinch and our waiter, Josh provided outstanding service! My husband was very disappointed that I had not checked to make sure the restaurant served "Coke" products. This is a make or break for him. They actually sent someone to the carryout down the street to purchase Diet Coke for my husband. We were so impressed and it certainly saved the entire evening. It was my husband's 69th birthday and I had insisted on taking him somewhere new. The food was delicious and it certainly lived up to my friends excellent reviews. We had the twin lobster tails and prime rib, shrimp cocktail, salads and asparagus. We had the cobbler and the creme brulee for dessert. Even the coffee we ordered with our dessert was outstanding. Very happy customers! This manager and wait staff deserve kudos for outstanding service and truly caring about the customer.

I am a very big Cameron Mitchell fan and eat at one of their restaurants at least twice a week. I brought my son and his wife and a friend from out of town their on Saturday night 8:45 reservation we where seated promptly and the was a fair crowd in the restaurant but you could tell it was winding down. Are server was not good at all. We had to wait long period of time for drinks, asked for him to bring bread 3 times and finally got it when we where done eating only because I got out of my seat tracked down another server to please bring it. The food was below average and very disappointing to say the least. The special was pepper crusted Tuna it came out with absolutely no pepper crust and was overcooked. My Short Rib grilled cheese was full of grease and I could not eat it, The Vegetarian Ravioli was not hot and was not good at all. It was like the server was getting ready to close and was busy back in kitchen. I have eaten here several times before and never had a problem.

I’ve been to the Avenue a couple of times and it has always been consistently good. Tonight though I had an outstanding experience the steak was the best I’ve ever had in my life. Trying to put it to words will be hard but I’ll try. I cut into my steak and was surprised by the perfectly pink presentation which was only out done by it being fresh of the grill and the warm. Then I was hit with a perfect amount of salt that melted away with a sweet taste of butter finished off with a quality taste of the filet. The sides played there part but were not overwhelmingly flavored. Our waiter was very personable and prompt and over heard that we had been to another Cameron Mitchell resultant recently and had gotten a bad table and took our desert off the check since that happened. Do yourself a favor and go there and treat yourself!

Family group loved our dinner here. Service was great. Steaks were cooked perfectly. Light crust, seasoned well, juicy and perfectly cooked throughout. We really enjoyed the charcuterie board appetizer too. Deserts were all made in house and were a real highlight. Chocolate cake was decadent and moist and loved the banana bread pudding. The only thing I’d ask them to improve would be the tavern salad that was a choice with most entrees. This salad just wasn’t on par with the rest of the meal. Needed more tomatoes, veggies—substance in general. But, that was the only hiccup with any of our meals. Highly recommend the restaurant for a great meal for any occasion.
