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.

Food was overpriced and very disappointing. Ordered the Mediterranean salad which I’ve had before and loved but this time it was served on a small plate with a glob of hummus and wet lettuce, there was no dressing on the salad and they left off half the ingredients listed on the menu. The crab dip was full of shells we couldn’t even eat it, and the drinks took 20 minutes to get to our table. Our waitress was incredibly rude and was no where to be found during our evening, we had to flag other servers just to get basic service. Very sad because this use to be one of my favorite restaurants…

Birthday Brunch for my best friend. We invited two other guests. We all drank and were very merry lol. We sat close to the DJ he played some lo-fi tunes with a few mixed in island themes. My best friend is vegan so she ordered two entrees, the Mediterranean salad and the mushroom tacos, (no cheese on either). We were pleased with the music, food, and drinks overall! Our server was also excellent.

Perhaps it was because of the holiday and their employees decided to take the day off but the hostess indicated there was only one server working the inside section. Seated at a table by the bar, it took almost 20 minutes for anyone to even glance in our direction to order. Once food was ordered, it took almost an hour for it to come. And all I ordered was a burger! My boy ordered a side of fries with his meal and they were old and luke warm.. And, when my burger did come, after all that time, they got my order wrong and I had to send it back. I ended up not eating because the server basically indicated it would be just as long to get a replacement. A complete waste of time...

We had a work dinner at Avenue Kitchen on a Tuesday. Had a great round table (so all 5 of us could see each other) and very attentive staff. The food came out quickly and everyone enjoyed their meal. It was also great that we could still enjoy happy hour specials until 6pm even though we weren't at the bar. Will definitely be back!

I ate there with my family for Father’s Day and we had a really great time. We made a reservation earlier that day and we were seated immediately. I will be making another reservation for their Brunch soon. The food and music during Brunch is a whole vibe.

I would have provided pictures but that food didn’t really didn’t last long, on our plates.

Took 10 minutes before anyone came to the table after we were seated. Brussels sprouts had good flavor but were a little undercooked. Entrees took an hour to come out after we ordered - 2 burgers and Mediterranean salad with chicken. Burgers came out 5 minutes before the salad. One was overcooked, other was fine. Restaurant was at maybe 50% capacity, can’t help but think the automatic 15% COVID gratuity, which is applied post tax, played some factor in the service.
