If you like Pizza, then you will enjoy getting a pie at Ava's. I was pleasantly surprised, as I don't expect much when ordering pizza outside of New York!. But this is the exception.......Delicious, think crust and loaded with flavor. Priced right too!!! Would definitely recommend a visit.

Stopped here for pizza and wine in mid-afternoon on a Thursday. Food and service were great. Bartender and waitress were very friendly. Outdoor deck is beautiful and relaxing.

Kudos all around for this place. A fan-cooled covered patio in the rear which accommodates Fido. Its own parking lot, a very valuable feature in St. MIchaels. Friendly, attentive staff. And incredible food. During a recent visit, we went with the boardwalk fries and mussels for appetizers. Can't go wrong with either of these. The margherita pizza is one of... More

We ate here for lunch on a recommendation. We sat in the covered patio behind the main building and it was very nice. The pizza was excellent (we had the Mediterranean: 5/5) and the scallops were very, very tasty. The Sangria was overpriced ($9) for what you get and we would not order it again. Our waiter was very attentive.... More

We tried the chef's favorite pizza and the cannelloni of the day. WHAT GREAT FOOD! And they have a big wine and beer selection if you are in the mood for that, too.

..and by far my favourite meal I had whilst staying in the US! Through recommendation, we decided to grab a bite to eat at Ava's. I ordered a Turkey Sonoma Club as I was lured by the avocado and garlic aioli, and my, I did not my regret choice. After taking my first bite, I instantly fell in love with... More

Great food,great drinks and a good & fair priced wine list. This is a 'most" stop for both locales & week-enders. Something for all-kids and your four legged friend out side on the patio. Also check out the daily specials.

This is an pleasant restaurant with a friendly waitstaff and tasty food. However, the five star rating comes from the fried oysters with wasabi sauce starter. Although I haven't eaten meat for years, I'm rather a hypocrite and I have eaten hundreds of oysters. Excellent breading, spicy sauce, and extra tender oysters. Well done - best I ever had and...
