A ""great place"" --- if you have low expectations 9/4/2008

Bartenders were inattentive. Not like it was a busy night. Place seemed cool enough till I ordered a whiskey sour. Call me a purist if you want, but unless your mixed drink has soda in it it shouldn't be made w/ the soda-gun. No whiskey to speak of, all sour. Which is fine as far as I'm concerned. But when you obviously haven't touched your drink in a half-hour and have pushed it most of the way back to the bar lip, you would expect a bartender to at least ask how things are. Worse than that when I press the issue that the drink tastes foul, he acts offended and wont remove the horrible drink from the tab. Pros: good location good music Cons: horrible service, inattentive staff more

Good Times 8/23/2007

Love the place. Have a great time every time. The bartender Craig is a hottie (OUCH). The staff is cool, the food is great, and the place is clean. I hate a dirty bar. Never had a bad time their, only the next morning after the great martinis(Maybe a few to many, but worth $5). more

great place 7/5/2007

I would definitely recommend this place. My overall impression is very positive with great service, quality bar food in big Chicago-size portions (dieters, sorry!) and a great selection of beers. The TV's are everywhere and it has a great outside sidewalk table seating. We waited a bit to be seated outside, but once we got out there, we didn't give up our table... great people watching. Pros: nice people from every walk of life: diversity Cons: need more beer variety more

fun crowd, fun staff, fun place....get it? it's pretty fun! 12/13/2006

We liked Avenue and the crowd. It truly was a diverse crowd and that made for great people watching. I can get a drink anywhere so I like to go to places that keep my interest. Pros: friendly, diverse crowd in a very nice atmosphere more

WHAT A NICE DIFFERENCE! 4/30/2006

It's SO nice to see a place where EVERYNE of all walks of life can hang out and enjoy a martini or beer or food. The food is better than the usual and the peoplke working there were a lot of fun. Pros: food, watching sports, people watching more

In Love with Avenue 5/18/2005

I have to say that I'm usually compelled to write reviews whenever I'm impressed with a bar. I discovered Avenue Tavern when my matey moved to that neighborhood. My mate and I broke up, but I am still going to the Avenue!!! Great munchie food and very cool people working there!!! Pros: staff, atmosphere, outdoor cafe more

Something for everyone 9/2/2004

Like the editor's review says, this place offers something for everyone. For me, it's been the scene of many dates which went nowhere. But that's not this bar's fault. This bar has a great location (close to me). I agree with that the service is friendly and prompt. I've had the food and it's also good. Pros: Friendly staff, Clean and comfortable more

CLO 8/1/2003

Ive been to AveTav several times with friends. For drinks after work, a casual dinner or a great Fri/Sat night out, AveTav is one of our favorites for casual socializing! The nice and plentiful staff keeps waits for food and beverage very short. Its a great neighborhood bar with a cool mix of patrons. Pros: Good atmosphere, Fun staff, Reasonably priced foo Cons: Windows open = warm more

Great Cocktails 6/24/2003

This is my favorite bar for cocktails. Exposed brick and other interior details make this place look sophisticated. But this place is very casual. Weekdays are not crowded; weekends not bad at all. Their cocktail ""avenue"" is so good and refreshing! Pros: good service, great cocktails Cons: too many TVs more

You'll love it 6/1/2003

Great mix of people. I can't wait untill the patio opens up. Pros: Good mix of people, clean, good food Cons: parking more

Refreshing 2/18/2003

The new bar/lounge is a welcome addition to our neighborhood. The scene is inviting and has more to offer than the jock type sportsbars in neighboring Lincoln Park. The staff is very nice, and the owner and managers are very friendly. The friendly doorstaff look like they are there to check i.d.'s and welcome people, not waiting to kick people out. They always greet you when you come in and say goodnight when you leave. Great place, will return and I encourage others to do the same. more
