We had an early dinner after a sailing cruise and Ava's did not disappoint. Our Waiter Rio took good care of us. We had a southwestern pizza and a nice bottle of Stags Leap.

We love Ava's. We make sure that we go every time we're in St. Michaels. Fun little place, allows dogs on the patio and has a covered patio. Busy, but the people there have always been nice.

Beautiful outdoor patio. Dog friendly. Even a dog menu!!! Their appetizer of house made chips is very good. The pizzas and salads are great. Unfortunately, when it is busy, they won't do take out. It's worth the visit; however!! It is right next to Theo's....More
