The TA reviews here glow about the food, but my experience was ordinary, sad to say. A simple chicken ceasar salad that was virtually delivered straight from the fridge.

This was an unexpectedly good lunch in the middle of a residential neighborhood. The brisket burger was giant and the chicken burger was tasty. The burger was preformed but decent and the bowl of chips we got to share hit the spot. It’s a good...little stop for lunch when driving through town.More

For tired weary people traveling the road (or anyone) a great place to rest and dine. Food is gourmet and served with style. Staff are friendly and helpful.

Left Penola late Sunday morning, heading back to Adelaide, had partied well Saturday night- needed something to eat- you get the picture and as was settling in my head for something from a chain, and thought 'Oh...., if only a pub was still cooking breakfast....Bingo, Google well and truly over delivered with the promise of 'all day breakfast' at the Avenue Inn. I was a bit perplexed when the SatNav took us into the beautifully gardened residential streets of Naracoorte, however as we pulled up, all looked good- a modernised welcoming motel was before us. All three of us enjoyed one of the nicest cooked breakfast we have ever had. Full Board, Vegan and a simple Scrambled eggs and toast. All superbly cooked and tasted great. Good coffee, superb leaf tea and a delightful outdoor decking setting. Friendly and welcoming service and great prices. Thank you Avenue Inn. Stayed for well over an hour, nearly two. A wonderful peaceful place to be together, before our drive back to Adelaide.More

Came here for breakfast as we were told by a local it was the best breakfast in town... and we were not disappointed! The simplest meals were found to be gourmet palate pleasers and they also cater for a lot of special dietary requirements. I...can not recommend their Toasted Granola highly enough! It was light but a generous serving and filled with an array of dried and fresh fruits that worked so well together! My husband couldn’t stop commenting on the huge serving of mouthwatering bacon he’d received with his eggs... so much so I had to taste it myself. It was literally one of the best breakfasts we have ever had! Plus their staff were lovely and friendly. What a delightful find!!More

The food at the restaurant is absolutely delicious. I have stayed here many times for work. I’ve never had a bad experience. The staff are wonderful and you know the owners Cameron and Alexandra put in their heart and soul. I give it a 10/10,...next time you’re in Naracoorte, I suggest this is the place to go.More

This place is run by a husband and wife team....along with the Avenue Inn. We had dinner here and it was a wonderful meal. The squid starter was so good we went for extra servings. Scotch Fillet was nicely done...juicy and tender. The salmon fillet...was done just right. Very convenient to dine when you stay there....and even if you are not.More

Pleasantly surprised with such a good quality restaurant, nothing fancy but food and service were well up in standard.

It might be just out of the main shopping strip but it's worth the effort. Luckily I was staying at the Avenue Inn so it was on the premises. I only had breakfast, but it was delicious. I was welcomed warmly and had my order...taken straight away. My mocha coffee was just right, and I decided to go with the waffles with maple syrup and bacon and poached eggs. I'd never had sweet go with savoury before, but it was amazing. I complimented the chef and he said he got the idea from someone from Sydney, and said it was their most popular dish on the breakfast menu, with good reason.More
