We travel from SC to Denver every 6 months or so and like the slightly longer trip through Wichita due to the less crowded roads, but also due to the Drury on the river and the co-located AVI restaurant. It was a Monday night, uncrowded, and all we wanted was a good drink, quality meal with decent wine and a chance to replay the visit to our grandkids while we shook the dust off. AVI is one of the best venues we’ve found for this purpose, anywhere. We had a crab cake and salads (Grilled Caesar and AVI BLT); fresh, tasty and reasonably priced. Our most pleasant surprise on this trip was our waitress / mixologist, Shannon, who was outgoing, unobtrusively attentive, full of local history when we engaged her, and skilled at the bar. She even ran downstairs to the kitchen to get blue cheese with which to stuff my martini olives. She made our evening the best possible. Thanks Shannon!

This restaurant is connected to the Drury Hotel, so it is perfect. The super friendly staff made sure that everything was great. We even got a brief history of the area and some suggestions of places to visit since we were from out of town. The food was delicious and the drinks were amazing!

What a pleasant find in Downtown Wichita, Kansas! This restaurant has a train theme because of it's location at the spot where there used to be a train station for the Arkansas Valley Interurban Railroad (hence the name AVI). Great menu with lots of tasty items to choose from! Everything came out from the kitchen fresh, hot, and delicious! Staff were all great and very accommodating and helpful! All in all a great meal in a really nice atmosphere!

I ordered the caeser salad and salmon and regretted both choices. The salad was black on the end and tasted terrible and the salmon 8oz was the smallest 8oz I have ever seen. I am so glad that I wasn't paying because I would have complained until Christmas. This was supposed to be a nice restaurant and their prices screamed expensive but they did not deliver at all.

My husband asked for the salmon to be medium rare and not over-cooked and it was splendid! Perfectly seasoned and so fresh, and the texture and temperature were perfect. I ordered the fish tacos, grilled magi & halibut were huge stuffed full of the chunks of meat on top of a bed of yummy coleslaw and a drizzle of avocado cream. Delicious!!
