Being vegetarian it's sometimes hard for me to find something good to eat. Ava's had so many choices I actually had a hard time deciding. I had the ratatouille pizza which was delicious and my husband had the "Meat, meat, meat" pizza. They are definitely not skimpy on the toppings. Both pizzas were covered !!! Our waitress, Susanna, was so... More

We usually love our visit to Ava's, but this time was tough!!! We had some real challenges with my entree coming out correctly (first with goat cheese instead of feta and then with feta and no olives, as ordered). This wasn't the servers fault, but he didn't handle it very well. He said the error would be corrected in 2... More

Very good lunch here today. Nice choice of about ten draft beers and an excellent Margherita pizza cooked in their 800 degree oven. Nice clean atmosphere and good friendly service.

We took our dog to St Michaels for a quick weekend trip. Ava's was highly recommended as the bar area is dog friendly so we could take our entire family with us. :) They even have a dog menu although our dog did not partake as he had already eaten when we went. We called ahead to get our name... More

This is not just about the pizza, which was very good. The pasta, particularly the linguini with fried oysters, was exceptional, as were the salads, which we shared three orders among five people. The service was cheerful and efficient, and we look forward to returning.

Would go back here in a heartbeat. Had a sandwich and pizza and both were full of character and flavor. Beers on tap were unique and excellent, and the service was fine. Room was fun and whimsical, and all in all, this is a place I would recommend 100%. I hope to go back.

Highly recommend the pizza and meatball sandwich. The beignets are to die for - almost as good as those at Cafe du Mond in New Orleans.

While wandering on Talbot Street stopped for a quick bite. Ordered the margarita pizza cooked in an 800 degree oven crisp crust with fresh homemade mozzarella and fres basil. Delish! Service was quick. Back out to walking around.
