Don't think for even a minute this is just another pizza restaurant. Sure they have very good pizza but everything we had from salads to the soup which was tomato bisque to meatballs to main courses - it was all excellent. The service was also great.

We had the opportunity to stop at Ava's for a Friday lunch. The menu has a good selection of items from appetizers to main courses. You can get oysters, shrimp, sandwiches (they make their own bread and it's delicious), brick oven pizza and pasta meals. They have a great bar with a good selection of beers and wines. We have...

This is a fantastic restaurant and bar right in St. Michaels. It is way more than a pizzeria. We stopped in for a quick lunch on a cold February Saturday and the place was very busy. Since it was a wait for a table we opted for the bar. We got the quinoa salad with grilled vegetables and a club... More

We sat on the heated patio and totally enjoyed our meal. Oysters with wedge salad and Sicilian pizza we're both very good. Server was friendly and timely. We wanted to return for the meatballs but didn't get a chance!

Have eaten here several times lately, mostly lunches. We go for the courtyard in the back, any time of year. Fireplace, fountains, ceiling heaters and fans, glass enclosure in winter - what's not to like? Thin crust handmade craft pizzas, awesome burgers, and a great wedge salad, delivered by truly stellar service. Worth a meal or three while you are... More

Ava's is an excellent choice for lunch in St. Michaels. My wife and I each started with a salad, both delicious. The Chicken Paillard is a large and yummy, but will fill you up as a starter. It is more of a main course and you'll need to love goat cheese. We ordered the Chef's Favorite specialty pizza and loved... More

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.

Grear backroom bar that opens in good weather. The Parmesan chips a practically a meal in themselves.
