This place is a pass. Staff is grumpy. Food is meh. Set your bar low. Burgers were decent.
Fish tacos overcooked. Chopped salad was boring with tiny little pieces of bacon.

Too many other places to try.

We love the Avalon Brew Pub! The food offers a variety of options no matter your mood, casual bites or larger entrees. Of course the beer choices and being on the beach is a wonderful experience at the shore - not to mention the décor which makes dining here unique. Great addition to the Avalon dining options.

It’s a tavern like atmosphere amongst a resort hotel. Food was better than expected and even short staffed at 90% filled the food came out quickly. The waitress, Sue I believe was outstanding. While I live down the shore, I’ll only visit in the off season due to the crowds between memorial and Labor Day. Owners and staff should be applauded.

Excellent! Went two nights in a row. BLT mussels and clam chowder are great starters. Fish and chips one night - fish super fresh and crispy exterior. Chef’s burger the next night - so good. Cooked perfectly as ordered. Nice clubby atmosphere. A bit short staffed so be patient - staff that are working are great.

Jordan was an excellent waitress who provided menu guidance, was attentive and did not rush our dining experience. The brew pub IPA on draft is an excellent choice. My son loved the Bavarian pretzel. Family friendly.

Food and service was very good, although we had to ask for silverware and napkins. Decor is cool, but all metal ceilings (beer kegs!!) and hardwood walls made the noise level uncomfortable. This was a Friday afternoon at 12:30 lunch, and it was not at all crowded.

The restaurant was not busy/packed so we came earlier than our reservation time and was seated right away. COVID protocol appeared to be in place with some of the staff but that seems typical for the area at this time. Had the restaurant been at capacity we would’ve been more apprehensive and masked but we felt comfortable. Server, cocktails and the food were great.

Great food. We had braised short ribs and the Crab Louise salad (with added Shrimp). Excellent food and prep. We ate on the patio and were way too close to the party next to us. Looking for good food?…This is your place.

Corn fritters were way too salty, and much smaller than I remember. Mahi mahi tacos were just okay. Burger was not medium rare, as ordered. Server, however, was very nice.

The food was similar to Applebee’s and house beers were very bad. Overall, there are worse places in Avalon, but this restaurant is overpriced and underwhelming.

The apps and salads were good but I was really disappointed in our steak. It was so salty and fatty. Very hard to eat. Overall it was a good place to go for a few appetizers but I wasn’t impressed with a $40 steak I couldn’t eat.

Worst dining experience ever. Server let
Us know they microwave all food.
Every entree came out wrong and inedible.
Waitress kept coming back as she forgot the drink order - there were two of us. Also they didn’t want anyone to eat In the restaurant- they sat us In the lobby of the hotel.

The staff tries really hard. They just are understaffed and under managed. They are friendly but frazzled and the basics are often missed like drink refills, condiments, really cleaning the tables well between guests etc. Food was decent but unremarkable and for likely many of the previous stated reasons. The staff tries though and that’s important. It’s a tough time getting people to want to work and it shows and then throw in the seasonality of things in Avalon. It’s decent just not great.

Very disappointed. I mean, how can you screw up fish & chips? The fish was so over fried it was almost inedible. And then to top it off the french fries were not hot.

I have always had great service at Avalon Pub but today’s experience was terrible. We were seated right away when we got in but it took 15 minutes before anyone came over to serve us. It was not busy but all of the wait staff stood around at the front of the check in desk talking. I had to ask the server if anyone was working before someone came over to our table. There was more wait staff than there were customers.

My husband and I just wanted a small non formal dinner. The Avalon Brew Pub was perfect. Nice selection of beer as well as full bar service. We both had sandwiches that came with fries. I had the pulled pork and my husband had the crab cake. Tasty and good pricing.
