Not a first choice

Overrated. Food is average and overpriced. However it is a favorite of some local. I suspect it is out of habit.

Stopped in for dinner while visiting the area. Lovely diner right on the main street. Waitress was very friendly and attentive. Food came out quickly and was delicious! Huge sandwiches we could barely finish. Would definitely go back!

We travel to Gettysburg many time through out the year and we always start our day out at the Avenue Restaurant, They make a great breakfast with lots of food to get you started on your Battlefield travels ahead. The wait staff have always been very nice and fast. My favorite is their Pancakes with the homemade sausage gravy on... More

This is a lovely diner with super friendly staff and really nice food. The diner really needs an update but I'm guessing they just stay way too busy for that. Everything is generally clean. Good prices. Even just getting a grilled bacon and cheese sandwich is good. Nice soups; especially in the fall. My daughter loves getting the chocolate pudding.... More

We enjoyed two meals at the Avenue Restaurant. There was a very good kids menu. The menu featured typical meals you would find in a classic diner. For dinner I had a cheese steak sub with sweet potato fries. Both were very good. For breakfast the kids had pancakes and I had a chili omelet with home fries. The omelet... More

We were extremely disappointed with the lunch we had. This was definitely not worth the price for what you got. The burger was overdone and dry not to mention definitely not worth the $12.99 price! As for the Broasted chicken, I would have been better off going to KFC for their chicken and coleslaw which would have cost me less... More

My son wanted to eat here for his 12th birthday. Food was ok...overpriced. Milkshakes ok but nothing spectacular to be $6.00 each. Waitress asked us if we were members of their frequent buyer club. Since we have been there before I told her I didn't have a member number but do remember signing up for it. She claims she tried... More

A unique diner atmosphere. We only eat breakfast here. Prices are high for breakfast, however, you do get a large portion. This trip I had a party of 12. We got say but were crowded. Server was pleasant. We thought maybe they had to squeeze the chickens for the eggs we ordered. It took awhile to get our food and... More
