    This place is the best in the area!!! Nice selection of beer, wines & liquors. They'll special order stuff if you want it. The store is family owned (they are all very nice) and they are "dog friendly." The guys will carry your stuff out to the car if you need it and they have a lottery machine, too.

    Stop by and tell them I sent you!!!

    Ok ... so here it is almost 3 years later and I still think this is the best store around. The people are SO friendly and helpful, no matter what your are looking for. The prices are the best in the area!

    Stop by and tell them I sent you!!! They always love hearing that .

    Great costumer service

    This place has an excellent variety of alcohol - specifically their craft beer is both diverse and abundant in selection. But it's not the well stocked shelves that made my store experience exceptionally amazing; it was the cashier, Amanda who delivered the wow factor with her "above and beyond" service by delivering quick, efficient, and impressive customer orientated assistance.  There were several employees that were working the floor on that particular day but this young lady stood out amongst the rest with a delightful smile, a positive demeanor, and an outgoing attitude to match.  She went out of her way to make sure that I was satisfied with every aspect of my transaction before I left that store.  Not only was Amanda knowledgeable in the brews and spirits sold at the this establishment, but I'd venture to say, she is probably the most friendliest customer service representative I have ever come across in a retail establishment.  Go see Amanda at Avenue Wine and Spirits if you need help picking out the perfect party drink. I was in the market for a birthday gift for an acquaintance of mine and she gave me her professional opinion as well as several other helpful recommendations which led me to a bottle of blush wine that ended up being the hit of the party and the birthday girl's new favorite brand of wine.  Avenue Wine and Spirits was a random liquor store I chose to stop in the other day but thanks to Amanda I will be a happy frequent flyer and an enthusiastic return customer.  Keep up the great work!

  • *****

    My favorite "neighborhood" liquor store. Friendly staff and good selection.

  • *****

    Great selection in a small, friendly neighborhood shop.

  • *****

    My favorite place to buy my beer and spirits. They do right by their customers by keeping their prices competitive and close to MSRP. (Unlike Franks down the road).

  • *****

    Great selection! The staff is always super helpful

  • *****

    Whole staff is courteous! Limited selection, but always has what you are looking for. Easy in, easy out. Exactly what a neighborhood store is supposed to be.

    I ordered a very special, hard to obtain German Wine from Avenue Wines by Robert Panzer thru his online offerings at downtoearthwines.net to be sent to me here in Arizona. I was nervous at first as I had never heard of Ave. Wines and other than Facebook, they don't have a website. But I was pleasantly surprised. Robert was exceptionally professional and helpful. GREAT customer service and I my wine arrived to me 3 days later in perfect condition. Thank you Robert and thank you Avenue Wines!

    They're friendly, they feed my dog, and they'll order things you're interested in if they don't already carry it.

  • *****

    Extensive wine selection for such a small shop.

  • *****

    Friendly family owned business

  • *****

    My ultimate favorite honey hole. Always a great selection of craft beers whose list grows and grows as new things become available in Delaware. In addition to beer, a very competitive selection of fine spirits. Wine selection is pretty good as well.

    But let me explain why I continuously spend my money here. I love the Mom and Pop feel of this business. I come in and chat with the staff and have a great relationship with them. All the staff are always friendly.

    The prices here are the best in the area. They NEVER take of advantage their customers with over inflated prices (unlike FranksWine down the block -- i will never spend a dime there ever again). This is why I will always be a loyal customer to Avenue W&S.

    Trust me, spend your money here and you won't regret it.

    Avenue Wines is a neighborhood store with an excellent selection of scotches, a knowledgeable staff, nice little dog mascot, and knows the history of the 40 acres community.

  • *****

    So this place is awesome they are very helpful people. Huge variety of wine for my price range which is not much lol. So I was glad I can get some fancy wine without breaking the bank. I also played my very first lottery card not too long ago and they nicely explained how all the cards worked and everything. I appreciated that. It's the kind of place you can ask for help or advice and get all the answers you need.

    As a Philadelphian, this place was guaranteed 3 stars just based on the fact that I can buy wine, liquor, AND beer all at the same location. Yes, I understand that's sort of unfair, but PA laws drive me nuts. Anyways...

    I really do prefer this liquor store over others. Why? Well, their selection of beer is pretty darn good. You can find your normal Bud Lights, Blue Moons, etc happily coexisting with Blue Point Toasted Lager and Dogfish Head Punkin Ale.

    As a random side note, I am a pumpkin enthusiast. When the first case of Punkin Ale is spotted, I am more excited than on my birthday. After mentioning my affinity for this beer to the staff, they told me they'd save me a case if I needed one later that month. Seriously awesome.

    What really sets this place apart though is the staff itself. I'm pretty sure it's family owned (?) Despite their love of the Yankees (there is a dog in the store all the time named Jeter, sigh) I always feel at home when I come in. They are more than willing to look in the back for something or to give a suggestion. Also, someone almost always opens the door for me as I lug out my purchases. It's so refreshing to have such a pleasant and helpful group of people at this store.

    BEST PRICES in the area (yes, I've compared the prices with ALL of the stores with a 5 mile radius)!!!
    - Price Example: Brancott Estate Sauvignon Blanc
    - - Avenue = $10.99
    - - Franks Union Wine Mart = $12.99
    - - Gilpin Liquors = $11.99
    - - Inner Spirits = $11.99
    - - Moore Brothers = unavailable b/c they don't carry "cheap wine"
    I have done similar price comparisons with beer and Avenue is ALWAYS cheaper. Unless you are looking for some $85.00 bottle of Bordeaux, go to Avenue. Employees and owners are always friendly and helpful as well. Even better- If they don't have something you like, they will order it for you!!

    Go here pretty much just for Scotch. Their prices are typically $10-15 dollars cheaper for most of the single malts I want. Last time I went there I got a Glenfiddich 12 for $35 and an Oban 14 for $50 (both 750ml). The selection isn't huge, but the prices are right.
