Nice ambience, mediocre cuisineNice seaside patio setting, but the food was mediocre and way overpriced.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding RestaurantMy Girlfriend and I had a fantastic experience at Avalon Grille. The hostesses got me the table I had requested with my reservation, which was right in front with a harbor view. Our wait staff was amazing, from the water and bread server's all the way to our main waitress. The food was outstanding as well! The restaurant was extremely busy, but I would definitely go back and give my recommendation.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best optionWe were visiting Avalon for a few days and ate at this spot twice. Both times the service was great and atmosphere good although pretty quiet both times. I live in Colorado, so when I'm on the ocean, I want fresh seafood. It was strangely absent from most places in town. The Avalon Grill did a great job with the limitations they have of trying to have a high end restaurant with a nice menu in a town driven by seasonal tourism. They are by far the nicest spot compared to the rest of the towns ultra casual restaurants.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMPricey but RecommendedA bit pricey however I enjoyed my filet and my girlfriend found the clam chowder to be delicious. We also shared a delicious cheese cake for dessert.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great night! ThanksWe had a great night! Thanks for making our anniversary special.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe chef uses fresh ingredientsThe chef uses fresh ingredients to create delicious Southern-style food. Martinis were tasty. Service was attentive. I recommend the fried green tomatoes starter. Sand dabs were the special seafood of the day and they were prepared perfectly! Great place to eat a leisurely meal and watch the crowd go by.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMNot your typical tourist trap!Wonderful knowledgeable server. Every single thing we ordered was delicious.

Bless you!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe ordered the fresh fishWe ordered the fresh fish of the day, Mahi Mahi. The fish was well prepared and delicious, but pricey. For an over $30.00 single plate, I felt it was skimpy, and lacking a fresh vegetable. It was served with a few greens on top of the fish.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice place for dining in AvaloBeautiful setting. Good food, not great. Portions of appetizers VERY large, so sharing is recommended. Some moderately priced winesavailable. All in all, very good.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMService and food were outstanding.Service and food were outstanding. Clam chowder is by far the best me and my girlfriend have ever had! Burger was delicious, the Mac n cheese that comes with the Monday pot roast could use a little help and French kiss spirit was a little strong. Other then that... phenomenal!3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFrom the moment I booked myFrom the moment I booked my reservation, the Grille took care of my every need.This was a special occasion and it turned out to be a real fine dining experience.
I usually don't care for calimari but my husband ordered it as an appetizer(fried)and it was the best I ever had! They threw in some shrimp in the mix and it made for a good portion size.
Our server was extremely helpful. I had a long day at work and asked what drink she suggested. I had the "French kiss"- vodka, pineapple&raspberry juice, garnished with blackberries . And that was exactly what I needed!
This time I had the salmon which was amazing but next time im going to have the "half chicken" again. Its a little on the pricey side but you get what you pay for here.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect EveningBlue Cheese steak was best I've had. Steak itself was perfect, as was everything else, including getting the perfect table alone at the back of the restaurant.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great table withWe had a great table with a beautiful view of the bay. Employees were super friendly. Waiter was professional but not stuffy, which we really liked. We were disappointed with the calamari appetizer and drinks (margaritas). My quail entree was delicious. Calamari: I think the cap must have fallen off the salt shaker. Some pieces were bland and others were so salty they were hard to eat. I declared it inedible, but my husband who loves salt ate it but admitted that it was hard to eat. We also thought our margaritas were way too sour (face puckering sour), but we watered them down and drink them. Overall nice though because of the view, ambiance and friendly service.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
