Great place for a beer in New Orleans, selection is top notch and the food is amazing, especially the "Fries to die for." The place is a little run down but it adds character. I will definitely go here every time Iím in New Orleans.

Visited several times during my few days in New Orleans. Good friendly vibe about the place. The large tap list seem to evolve daily, so everything was always fresh. Pretty good bottle selection too. Only had food there once, but the dishes my wife and I had were very good. My one major complaint is the smoke. Itís hard to escape it. A non-smoking section SOMEWHERE (even if it was just the ground floor patio) would be very much appreciated.

Old, with a lot of character. Indoor seating with high tops and a bar that stretches the full length of the bar from front to rear. A few TVs. Friendly bar staff. An impressive beer list. Unique pub fare. Upstairs with a balcony and a small downstairs, street-side patio. No smoking in the upstairs bar.

We visited a weekday evening. Downstairs is smoking, good to know if you like me hate that. Upstairs and balcony is non-smoking. however. Good draft list, good bottle list, but nothing exceptional. Staff was sort of absent-minded, and some of the beer on their bottle list wasnít available.

So this was an interesting place. Itís in an old traditional NO house with porches all around the upstairs. Looks well broken-in and comfy. Lots of taps downstairs, and a handful of food items. I had the lamb and beef meatball sandwich which was delicious. The beers are varied, with a number of local things, Belgian stuff and others. Downstairs was smoking, though, but ventilation was OK. My first visit was on a Friday night, and the only open barstool was at the second bar in the rear. It took me a while to figure out that you canít order beer or food from that bar, and staff gave me no hints. Upstairs had one firkin and some handpull casks, ranging from Thornbridge Halcyon to Evil Twin Imperial Doughnut. Solid place. Several decent hotels within a couple of blocks, which made the visits much easier.

Like all the classic beer bars Iíve been in, this is a humble, TV-less, poorly lit joint that is comfortable and lacking any pretentions. Notable for a rather outstanding offering of Belgians on tap and in bottles, it also has many local micros. Bar staff was friendly and attentive, but the beer knowledge wasnít really there, such that I politely asked if they minded if I looked at their bottle collection myself. Overall this place is deserving of their highly ranked status, but be warned: you come here for the beer, as there isnít much else to satisfy non-beery folks.

Hopless, hopless, hopless. This place did not have a decent hop laden beer to speak of. That being said, the selection was amazing. I spoke to a woman who said she didnít care for hoppy beers. She said she lived in Rehobeth Delaware for a while and when I mentioned Dogfish Head, she said she didnít care for them, too hoppy. Anyway, this is the place in NOLA for a beer. The service stinks, there is no service, you have to get your own food and drink but the beers are incredible. You have to put up with some shit every now and then. No other place in NOLA comes close.

Kind of a run down looking place (not that itís a bad thing) that is a two-story building. Decent food and brews but parking can be a challenge. I got there at 5:00 and had to park three blocks away.

Zwanze Day 2013 was my first experience at Avenue. Selection on tap and in bottles rivals the best beer bars in the country. Unfortunately, for many of the patrons, this is just another bar on St Charles. Your lambic order is taken alongside the woman who wants a vodka tonic and four shots of Jameson. I must say they handled the crowd rather well for the actual Zwanze tapping, though; the groups system was smooth and painless.

Service wasnít particularly good. Downstairs bartenders werenít exactly friendly, conversational, or even efficient. Some of them donít know (or seem to care much) about the amazing selection of beers available here. My credit card was lost for about 20 minutes while I tried to close my tab. And hey, that happens from time to time, but it reinforced my supposition.

[Edit: My original words here were probably a bit harsh & unfair for not having experienced the issue in question myself, so Iím removing them until I have personal experience to confirm/deny what Iíve heard. That said, the above reviewer spammed my personal social media accounts for simply conveying the experiences my friends had at this bar. Two wrongs donít make a right, buddy.]

Anyway, Avenue is a legit beer destination, but donít expect friendly banter with the bartenders because the guy behind you needs his vodka Red Bull ASAP.
