This is a large, standard looking place in a quiet stretch of Oak Park, a short stroll from the more popular areas. Layout is a large bar with seating on all sides, and booths around the side walls, a large (very large) screen in the...More

Excellent food New waitress not familiar with menu, still did a good job Bar service s great great disappointment, person making the drinks needed a bar book to instruct on how to make drinks. Service was very slow for the number of people we saw.

Service was slow to nonexistent and we had to go back to the hostess to ask if we had been assigned a waitress. Not sure why as it was not busy. Burger was good and fries too. We're not likely to return.

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.

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
