Ava's is great in the Spring, Winter and Fall outside but is also great indoors. There is a great beer selection and the food is outstanding. They are known for their pizzas but their main dishes deserve recognition as well. There are no reservations and weekends can get hectic but the wait is worth it.

We visited a couple of spots on Talbot St while in town ... this was our favorite. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. Pretty cool, eclectic-ish place with friendly service. We split a salad, Moma's meatballs and and Margherita pizza. And check out this cool Christmas tree

My wife and I were in St Michaels and wanted a bite to eat for lunch. We knew they had a wedge salad from their online menu and that is what we were looking for. We decided to also have their homemade chips with blue cheese and split a white pizza. Chips were delicious, very thin and crisp. The pizza... More

Not much else to say other than the pizza was AWESOME and the beignets were excellent! Right in the middle of St. Michael's close to all the shops.

A small place which serves phenomenal gourmet pizza as well as other Italian favorites. Definitely worth waiting for - sometimes line goes outside, it's so good!

It took awhile for service when we first got there but it was worth the wait. Chicken parmigiana sandwich was amazing. Great pizza and fries. Nice wine selection and casual atmosphere.

We had lunch on the back porch with my friends' dog, who ordered up some doggy beef stew which was "woofed" up promptly. We were in front of the fire and the wine-bottle Christmas tree and had a great time. We enjoyed some wine and appetizers and enjoyed our lunch. It's always a pleasure to return to Ava's on a...

We were in St. Michaels for 3 days over Thanksgiving. After to heavy dinners, we chose Ava's on the last day. It was the day after Thanksgiving and the restaurant was packed. We were in the mood for pizza and their brick oven pizza did not disappoint. We had a couple beers from a local brewery which complemented the pizza.... More
