The Avenue Bar & Grille

Welcome to The Avenue

Featuring mouth watering burgers and 30 constantly rotating craft beer taps, The Avenue is a great neighborhood spot for everyone.

The Avenue loves our regulars!! Stick around long enough and you’re family- you might even have a drink named after you. 😝 Come down to the Ave this Wednesday for the launch of our new summer cocktail and menu and ask about “One for the Sidewalk”, a shot of Jager paired with a Miller High Life named after our beloved Richie.
