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.
i wont be returning anytime soon...

Pros: good location good music

Cons: horrible service, inattentive staff

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).

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

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: food, watching sports, people watching

This casual bar in Lakeview is always great for a casual night out in Lakeview. Never a crowded bar scene or loud music that makes you shout to hear anything. It's just good drinks, good bar food (huge portions) and the outdoor seating makes for a relaxed night out.

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

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.

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.

Cons: Windows open = warm

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 mix of people, clean, good food

Cons: parking

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.

Blond-stone walls, a dozen 32-inch TVs and plenty of windows (including a retractable garage-door of paned glass) brighten the two-room space, even late. Staffers efficiently wind their way through high tables and…
