Have dined at the Avenue several times. 99% of the time no complaints on service or food. Needs to be updated badly. But always busy because of the food and location.

In our experience, this place has gone downhill in recent years. It is way overpriced. Average food is served with prices that rival rip-off prices at a major tourist area. Restaurant is dirty and generally staff seems bothered by the job of waiting on you. Too much good food in the area to eat here again!

The food was average but totally overpriced. The chili, disgusting. It tasted like the ey used last night's left over spaghetti sauce as the base. Not impressed and will not come again.

I only gave this 2 because of the great service. I ordered corned beef hash and toast.The toast was barely cooked , almost white and covered with margarine (I hate margerine). The hash was the greasest dish that was ever served to me. I sent it back and in the end was not charged for it. I would not return... More

This is my favorite place in Gettysburg for breakfast - the omelettes are great! They also have free parking in back of the restaurant.

We stopped for coffee, it was rainy, and cold and the coffee was wonderful, the wait staff was very very friendly, and we ended up with several cups of coffee and a piece of pie! I will go again and again when I'm up that way!

Beyond average place. Food arrived cold. would have sent it back, but I did not think heat would have helped it. The dinner salad could not have been more bland,,,iceberg lettuce with about three shreds of carrots AND served in a SMALL soup bowl (about one cup). Maybe it was better back in 1958, when it opened. But there are... More

Good menu with all meals covered including dessert. A little something for everyone from a restaurant that dates back to when Eisenhower was President.
