“Good service, food just OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

We went for dinner. Tables were a little cramped, wait service was fast, prices were good. Food was just OK. Plenty of pictures on the wall to keep you occupied. There are better choices nearby.

“You better look for a better bargain”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013 via mobile

On a Christmas eve we went in for lunch, but although the place was nearly empty the service was slow.
Food was just ok, the type of an everrage diner. Burgers were dry, chicken tenders were dry as well, french fries were strange in taste but the crab cake sandwich was good (although came completely blank without any vegetables in the ban).

Prices are higher than the average diner (probably because of the touristic location) so in overall that wasn't a good bargain for our money.
You better look for a better one.

“Good stop on a long day...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

We go here often when out and about motorcycle riding; it is always busy but you don't have to wait. Great place for basics like soups and sandwiches. Only negative is that there is only one men's/women's room (one for each) and the doors open right into the restaurant so there isn't really anywhere to wait.

“Nice family diner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

The Avenue is a true American dinner. Basic fair, nice staff, decent food, and a nice price. Many folks may complain or be nervous due to the old decor. However if they walk in and look over the cosmetics of the dinner, I think they would be presently surprised.
