Welcome to The Avenue Restaurant and to Our Family!

“We Are Happy To Be Here, Proud To Serve”

The Avenue “Diner” was established in 1958 by Grover “Doddie” Thompson. Please feel free to take a look at the framed tribute to our Founding Father who now spends his winters in Arizona & summers in Gettysburg. The Original Home was built & occupied by the George Washington Grant Heagey family early in the past century. We enjoy meeting his Family, Grand and Great Grandchildren, Nieces and Nephews and hear the stories they tell of the family & home the restaurant once was. The second story of the building remains intact to this day.

I am Tammy Keplinger Hughes and together with my youngest son Ryan Hughes we became the fourth owners of this fabulous eatery since 1958. Our History with The Avenue Restaurant began in the Spring of 1995 when my oldest son Brad Hughes began working for Frank Herring, the second owner of this great home-style restaurant. Ryan joined his brother working at the Avenue the Summer of 1997. Mark Cropp was the owner during Ryan’s employment; Ryan served Mark with Great dedication during this time. Ryan and I purchased The Avenue Restaurant in May of 2005. With Ryan’s years at The Avenue and knowledge of the property, and my extensive background in Store Management, We looked at ourselves as a matched set.

Our Staff about 35 of us all together bring with them Management, Cooking, Serving and Friendly Customer Service Skills that match our desire for fresh, quality foods as well as great leadership skills and a willingness to develop our staff and so begins a new generation.

My oldest son Brad joined the Military in 1998 and is currently still serving Our Country. Brad would say to me "Mom, We Are Happy To Be Here, Proud To Serve!" which became our Motto. We at The Avenue Look forward to Serving You! We are so very proud of our friendly, hard working staff, some family, some friends all “great” people with the desire to prepare the best quality food for you and to serve you with our friendly hometown kindness.
