The Place

Originally built as a local convenience and grocery store called the 'Jolly Giant', the building was converted to the Avenue Bistro restaurant in 2007. Avenue is family owned and offers an 'upscale casual' dining experience.  The service is warm and engaging - casual but correct. Variety of seating choices available including a seasonal patio, comfortable booths, and popular lounge area to enjoy a beverage or watch the game.
