It was my wife and my 45th birthday celebration. Food was fantastic as usual! The one thing different this year was that desert was not compensated as it has been since we have been coming every year since it opened. In the current financial environment I sort of understand however it was kind of disappointing. We will still come for special occasions but disappointing that there is not the same vib for the special occasions.

We have eaten at The Avenue several times. It is always good, but this was the best. We have always liked the ambiance, but the combination of an experienced wait staff and nice table added greatly to the experience. My wife had the crab cakes and I had the roasted chicken. Both were excellent. Usually I have a steak, but I thought I would try something different. It was just as good. Since it was my birthday I was treated to a creme brulee with a candle. The Avenue really is a place you can celebrate a special occasion or just come in for a drink an a hamburger.

We decided to eat here for our anniversary, since this was the place we had our first date. The service was pretty good, but the waitress was really focused on upselling. Having worked in retail and commission jobs, I’m familiar with the tactics. My girlfriend asked for a wine recommendation, and the waitress happily recommended one but didn’t mention the price or show us on the menu. When I got the bill it was $20 per glass, which came to be $40 for just the two glasses she had. We were asked if we wanted any sauce on our steaks after ordering the $48 filet, and we thought it was just something that came on it or was optional. That was another $8 for a little scoop of sauce. Earlier in the meal, I was told they got 6 new bourbons, so I tried the only one I hadn’t had before which was $11 per round. On the bill it came up an extra $2.50 per. So there was an additional $5 in over charges. 2 drinks each, and 2 main courses, no appetizers, no extras, came to be over $185 BEFORE tip. The food wasn’t $200 good, and neither was the service, which I felt like had taken advantage of us for at least $60. It sucks to have had a bad experience because that was our special place we met and our anniversary date. It was also the start of our trip, and we had stayed in town a little later just to eat here. I didn’t want to make a scene in the restaurant on my date about the bill, because I didn’t want to ruin the mood and vibe that was already starting to suffer.

Overall enjoyable evening. Service a bit slow - but fine. Mostly I was surprised with how full and busy the restaurant was. If I was not fully COVID vaccinated- I would have been uncomfortable with the amount of people in the restaurant. Luckily we were in a booth with plexiglass. The staff all were masked and were great at cleaning things down.

I had scallops that came with green beans. Usually the veggies at the Avenue are a highlight of the meal but the green beans had no flavor at all. My husband said his NY strip was suberb.

The kids steak was ridiculously small but the rest of our food was amazing. We love the value of the steaks because they come with side dishes were most restaurants don’t. They are always cooked perfectly.

Well, we’re in a pandemic so we realize nothing is as awesome as it could be. That being said, we were celebrating a birthday on a Monday night, and had a lovely evening. The wine deal was great, the anchovies added to the Caesar were outstanding, the complimentary birthday cheesecake delicious, and we all enjoyed our meals. We’ll definitely be back. Thank you.

We have been to the avenue before, I was underwhelmed on this visit. The steak served was not a good piece, they did make it right, but even the second steak was under seasoned. We probably wouldn't return anytime soon.

We haven't been dining in for months now and we were so glad we finally made the decision to go out. Everything was perfectly prepared, the wait staff knowledgeable and friendly and wearing masks. Tables were spread out and plexi-glass installed. Can't wait to go back.

Wildly overpriced. Steak was ordered medium. Steak was well done. Steak was totally charred on outside. Sides were OK, but nothing special. After ordering a steak I was told a soup was included. They charged me extra for the soup.
This place is no better than a blue collar steak house such as Texas Roadhouse or Outback. We spent $148. and could have gotten the same thing at Texas Roadhouse for less than $60.

We were settled next to the bar so it was a little noisy. I would love to see another soup option, but the food was great and cooked to perfection. Drinks were done well. Overall a great night out to catch a nice casual dinner.
