The restaurant closed up. I heard the catering is still open. I wouldn't recommend it. You don't get what you pay for. They add on fees after you reserve and think prices are worked out.

We used Off the Avenue to cater a get together of about 40 friends and family, and were very disappointed in the communication, staff, and facility. Upon arrival, beverages were extremely difficult to obtain as the ONE staff person assigned to the event was slow and unfriendly. The food was average, but fortunately easily self serviced.

It is super cozy, nice relaxing breakfast place. Lunch dinner is highly average. They should just open for breaks and focus on catering the rest of the time!

The food was excellent. I will be going back again. All that and you get United Airlines miles too. I am a vegetarian and they had very good choices.

The food is terrible and really small portions. Heard the chef quit and the owner that doesn't know how to cook and the dishwasher are cooking. Don't waste your money there.

This is a great little neighborhood BYO tucked away on a side street in beautiful West Lawn, PA. It can be a bit pricy, and the service can be oh so slow at times, but you'll have a hard time finding too much to complain about.

Very unique restaurant. Menu is sometime a bit limited, but food and service are always very good. If you want something just a little out of the ordinary, this is a good choice.

I can't think of a worse dining experience in recent years, and it wasn't because of the food. The food was pretty tasty. My husband and I came in near the end of their lunch time - with perhaps 40 minutes to go. I had called in advance to make sure of the hours. Except for one other table of... More
