Eating there during March Madness may have been a mistake. The restaurant was busy and servers not quite as attentive as they have been in the past. Food was decent, however, I wasn't wow'd by the experience. I would recommend going on a non-peak night,...More

Lamb burger, bison burger, and burgers. Good appetizers and local beer options. There is roof top seating, but it wasn't open when we visited. There are enough options for a second and third visit. The surrounding neighborhood is great to stroll though and very safe.

We were here when the Cubs won the National League Pennant. The beer was cold and the fans were cheering. Lots of fun.

Decent burgers. Cavernous place that feels a bit institutional. But big complaints relate to beer:1) the breadth of the beer list is not what one would expect from the place's name and 2) other than their crap beer specials (buckets of Buds) there's no pricing...More

The best thing about Avenue Ale House is the consistency of its food, drinks, and service. I go there frequently (I meet with a group about twice a month at this location), and I'm always satisfied with everything. My favorite entree is the Teriyaki Salmon...More

The best proof of excellence in a restaurant is longevity, and Avenue Ale House has been around a while. There are several reasons why this is probably so. First, it is possible to eat dinner here on a budget, and it's also possible to treat...More

Ale house is a nice south oak park place. Food is good and the bar selection is good as well. The outdoor upstairs patio is a great place to sit when the weather is nice. They will also open the windows for an al fresco...More

I came here at a time when the restaurant was not busy. We had to continuously grab the attention of our waitress. Also, I ordered the coconut shrimp. Not only was the meal not warm, the rice smelled like it had gone bad.

I'm nearby, and it is convenient. Eat here often and both food and service are uneven. Sometimes really good, sometimes poor. Sometimes right in the middle. Today service was good, thanks to the attitude of the server. My hamburger was good; wife's fish and chips...More
