This restaurant has delicious food. And the waiting staff couldn't possibly be any nicer or more helpful. It was very busy the day we were there, but we were seated promptly (they also have more tables on the second floor). Their pizza is very different from what we are used to having, but the difference made it very appealing to... More

Great food! We had Oyster Poor Boy and Chicken Parmesan sandwiches My dog even enjoyed her chicken and rice dish. Terrific service by a friendly and efficient wait staff! Wonderful, cozy atmosphere! We will return to Ava's.

We had a great meal Thanksgiving weekend and love the new Hammy the Dog menu for our pup! He got his own organic chicken breast while we savored great soup, salads and pizza...super break from turkey on the new patio

Cold, rainy night in St. Michael's and we needed to warm up. Ava's had some good reviews so we gave it a try. We were seated in the back, it's an open outdoor patio in good weather, covered in bad weather. The area was nice, cool water feature, two fireplaces and several heaters around. We warmed up quickly. We had... More

Damien's wasabi oysters ($12) were good, almost overpowered by coating due to smallish oysters ; Soup of the day ($7)an Italian spinach and orzo- warm, tasty but a bit overloaded with orzo. Angus burger($12) was the best- well prepared on a pizza crust roll with tomato and spinach-old Bay fries were great. st Michael's Amber ale on tap was quite... More

Went with two friends and had their pizza. It's the best. Wood burning pizza oven, Thin crust, wonderful toppings ! My favorite is the carmelized onion! Please-- order the homemade potato chips, served warm with Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top ! Yummy!!! They serve regular entrees also. One of the best places in St. Michaels

There were several tables occupied in the late afternoon. It was a false sense of security thinking that this would be an outstanding meal. I order a chicken parm sandwich with the homemade fries. The fries were fabulous while the sandwich was small and much like a frozen variety you may get at Sam's or costco. My husband order the... More

Fabulous food, great atmosphere and service! We ate here numerous times over a weekend stay after locals recommended. Each meal was fabulous. Would return over and over if I lived there. The boneless short ribs were incredible as well as their gourmet pizzas, oysters, chicken Marsala and even the salads. Don't miss this place! Nice outside patio area out back... More

We love going to Ava's for a casual dinner. The food is always excellent and the staff friendly. It's a popular place and always busy but we don't mind grabbing a glass of wine at the bar while we wait. The extra seating gained by the back expansion will be a welcome addition.
