    An acceptable lunch experience but it would have been nice if the server had checked back to see if our food was okay. We made one request which was not honored and the server was no where to be found to tell her. Ruined the meal for that person. Otherwise it was a pleasant meal.

    We chose the Avalon Country Club for a 75th Birthday dinner. From start to finish, it was first class. Our server was excellent -very attentive to our table, offered suggestions, and explained the specials. The meal was outstanding, delicious and expertly presented. The home made cheesecake for dessert was perfect. All in all, a great experience.

    This was our second visit to the restaurant. We made a reservation for four people through Open Table. We arrived on time and the restaurant was about 3/4 full. When we arrived, we requested a booth and were told that there were none available although there were two clean, unoccupied booths. We were taken to the table directly outside the kitchen where there was a lot of hustle and bustle. At one point, a waiter banged into my chair, startling me. As our meal progressed, we were very disappointed to observe that 2-3 booths remained unoccupied the entire time we were there. Don't understand why our request was refused, but that along with the unpleasant place we were seated put a damper on the evening.

    Avalon Links Restaurant is a can't miss choice for either lunch or dinner. There were three of us tonight who each enjoyed a different entrée. All were above average. The clams casino soup is different and delicious! I chose a side of baby spinach leaves with warm bacon dressing -- outstanding. Service was top notch and the entertainment added to great evening out.

    The restaurant itself was very dated. The entertainment was loud but he was entertaining. Our waitress was very nice and very good. It was the food that was just not very good. There were 7 of us and none of us liked our meals. I don't understand all the other rave reviews about the food. It wasn't fresh, it was all just kind of blah. Service was great, I think the place needs a remodel and something needs to be worked on in the kitchen.

    Food was great - scallops "house special" was excellent - everyone enjoyed their dinner. Waiter was somewhat confused by our drink orders and entrees and never refilled water etc. - perhaps he was new or in charge of too many tables. Atmosphere is a bit dated - even for a golf course. Needs a facelift - but I'd return for the food. Thanks.

    Once every few months we get together as a group for dinner. We try different places to spice it up. Each place we have tried, we were satisfied. But I cannot begin to tell you how many of us in our group were passing comments on how happy we were. The atmosphere was perfect. Warm & cozy feeling. Service was great. Music was terrific, with a variety to accommodate the taste of many. The food melted in your mouth. I recommend the bananasplitini drink. Overall we had a wonderful experience and enjoyed ourselves immensely. We can't wait to go back.

    We were seated on the porch and really enjoyed the quiet atmosphere there. Our party of 4 enjoyed our dinners (each had something different). I personally had the flounder special and it was excellent. Avalon Links is local for us and we frequent it often. However, do not like the bar area when the DJ is there. It is way toooooooo loud.

    Dined on 1/18/2014
    Service was good but food was at best very average. Stuffed shrimp was so salty my wife had to send it back (to their credit they had no problem offering a substitute). My salmon was satisfactory, but nothing special. Small details were lacking...for instance a snow shovel was left laying on the ground nearly blocking the front door when we arrived (no snow to be found). Also a large chunk of the wall was missing where the dining table we sat at meets the wall (something you would expect to see at a diner). If we are down this way again we may give the place another shot to see if they just had an off night, but I would not guarantee it given the abundance of choices in Cape May.

    The restaurant was a good, all around experience. The food was very tasty, and the menu offered nice selections, mostly a seafood restaurant with good specials. The waitress made an error in my meal selection and they offered me what was cooked instead of what I offered but when I insisted on my original selection they removed the meal from my bill for my inconvenience. When it arrived it was very good and the way the waitress and management handled the problem was appreciated and appropriate. The upper level of the restaurant was really charming with a piano bar and friendly bar scene. The lower level had a view of the water. I would enjoy dining here again.

    We went for dinner Sat night.Our hostess gave us an early bird menu each.My husband ordered from the menu.We were charged full price for his entree and charged for the dessert.Our waitress explained we ordered too late.We were given these menus and ordered wine ,our waitress brought the wrong wine.So this extended the wait time past the early bird cut off.So it was not honoured. If it was my table I would have made sure my customer recieved this.. Really bad business to give people a menu and not honour it.

    We usually cook at home on Thanksgiving but we were told the Thanksgiving Buffet at the Links was great so we thought we would give it a try. We were all pleased that the quality and choices of the food offered were so great. Nothing was dry or overcooked and there was plenty of food for all and we had chosen the last seating of the day. The variety allowed everyone to get exactly what they wanted. We will definitely be back. This was not our first visit but we are continually pleased with their food and the friendliness of all the staff.

So glad I saw the restaurant on Open Table and had high ratings. I see why, we had a wonderful time, great food, and great service from Candice. The piano player in the bar was very good!
