They have the best pizza at Ava's! The sauce is really great and not at all like the pizza chains. Their meatball sliders were also tasty.

This was our 2nd visit to Ava's, and this time we ate outside on the patio. That in itself is a real treat; it has a water fountain made of various beer taps attached to a stainless steel panel. Our lovely waitress brought a plate of what looked like huge golden potato chips to the adjacent table, and we asked... More

Great patio and even better food. Pizzas and salads that were shared were fantastic. Highly recommend this to anyone in need of a relaxing and casual dining experience on St. Michaels.

The pizza here is excellent. There is also a very good selection of wine. It does get very crowded, though. We called ahead for a table (I highly recommend you do this if you go on a busy night as they do not take reservations). After calling ahead, they sent me a text and we were able to track our...

Great food, good service, fun atmosphere. The thin crust pizza is very good, with some unique selections to choose from.

When the local restaurant was closing early they suggested Ava's. It was just what we were looking for on a mid-week late September night. It is a small place but it also have great outside dining area. It was a casual place with a nice sized bar room. I suspect it was large than what I saw but we'll be... More

Stopped in for lunch after biking from Oxford, MD to St. Michaels (great bike trip - take the ferry!). Ava's is upscale in its offerings - great pizza selections along with innovative salads. We split a very fresh arugula and shaved fennel salad followed by one of the best Margherita pizzas I've had - thin crust (but not soggy) with... More

We have enjoyed Ava's for a number of years and particularly enjoy dining on the patio. The food is casual but very good. The pizza and their arugula salad are items that we particularly enjoy.

This was the only restaurant that had great service in st. Michaels. My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and our waitress made sure to make a big deal over us. Really made us feel special. The food is amazing here, we had the Buffalo chicken salad which was perfect! This is a must when visiting the area.

This was our first visit to St. Michaels and Ava's came highly recommended. We tried it and were not disappointed. Had a margarita pizza with mushrooms and the boneless short rib dinner-- both were outstanding. The pizza had a thin crust, brick oven baked and slightly charred (to perfection) with tomato sauce, mozzarella, and basil that tasted so fresh. The... More
