Good food and friendly service. The burger was very good. Shrimp and scallops risotto was just OK. Our other person had the prime rib special which was very good. I like the ambiance of this restaurant. It is very pretty and not noisy even though it was full.

The loudest restaurant I have ever been in, could not have a conversation, could not hear server. Signs boast of beers that they do not have. That is one of the reasons I went there, only to learn they are decorative only. Main course was served directly after appetizer, so the dinner got cold as we finished the appetizers. Waitress was the highlight of the night, very nice, attentive, concerned, I would not go back unless I hear from someone that this has changed. Food was good though.

Birthday celebration. Good service. Great caprese salad. Salmon entree had salmon that was on dry side—perhaps frozen? Didn’t taste fresh.

Food was very good, as was our service. The only issue I experienced was that they did not have our reservation from Open Table. I made the reservation, got confirmation, but they did not have it listed until a manager came and found it. He said he would seat us, but not sure what we would have done if the place was busier at the time we arrived.

I cannot properly rate my experience since they screwed up our reservation and we chose to leave after they couldn’t be bothered to accommodate us. They acted like we were a nuance so we left and went to the Windrift.

Two years in a row... decent food, awful service. Our party of eight ordered 6 appetizers and 8 entrees. Unfortunately, all 14 orders arrived at the exact same time - 30 minutes after we placed our order. No remorse. No apologies. No visit from the manager. "This happens all of the time" they said. Unforgivable. And the real shame, I really liked the Mussels/Clams/Chorizo app... but by the time I got to my French Dip, it was ice cold. Also, our sodas were undrinkably flat and the water was room temperature warm with no ice and no refills. This place could be great, but it is poorly managed and staffed with disinterested eastern European wait staff. We will not be back.

Absolutely below mediocre food for the elevated price. The so called “artisan” pizza was straight out of a frozen box. It barely had any flavor or sauce. As for the name “artisan” -there was absolutely nothing in the plain (from a jar) sauce to indicate it special. When I asked where the basil was since the description called for it -they returned with a small bowl of “basil” aka- arugula for me to sprinkle on top. The 2 of the 4 beers I had in their flight option were ok. The other 2 were horrible. The fish in the fish and chips was soggy (frozen fish flashed fried anyone?) . Don’t waste your time and money.

Made our reservation 3 hours ahead but when we arrived they could not find us. Able to seat us in bar area. Enjoyed our food. They were short staffed but still received great service from Carli. She was very thoughtful and considerate for our peanut/ treenut allergy son. Checking with the kitchen about ingredients to make his experience pleasant as well.

Great pub attached to the Icona resort in Avalon. We ate here for most of our meals and had a pleasant dining experience each time. Food was good, service was good, manager was on the floor a few times checking in with the diners. Only real complaint is that it is slightly pricey in relation to other similar places to eat.

Was excited to try a new place! Loved the decor. Comfortable chairs, nice roomy dining area where tables are not sitting on top of each other. Confusing if you come in at 79th St, there is no hostess at that entrance. We stood there for awhile before we realized it was in the other corner/side of the room I guess for the Icona guests. Calamari app, not great but the cheesesteak dumplings yummy! Riesling wine was delicious!!! The scallop risotto dish was a bit over salted but not that I couldn’t eat it and my husband had the roasted chicken garlic mashed potatoes and he thinks they forgot the garlic. Some would consider the entree portions to be too small but I thought they were just right. You are not taking anything home. Dessert we ordered apple crumble cheesecake (the dessert special?) and even though the waitress admitted that what she brought us did not appear to be that, the owner or chef insisted that’s what it was, we took it. It was some kind of chocolate peanut butter pie??? It was ok but not what we ordered or wanted. This was our first visit, excited to have a place close to 83rd that we could walk to that’s not the Concord. Spent $125 for 2 apps, 2 entrees, 1 dessert, one glass of wine, a coke and the tip. We would probably go again.

We got hosed. They double booked the tables and claimed they never got the open table reservation. They blamed Open Table for constantly double booking tables but the reality is that they are making reservations by hand so it’s probably their fault. The restaurant was half empty and they refused to seat us. They were also very rude and unapologetic.

My husband and I had our wedding reception at the Icona Golden Inn on July 14, 2018 - it was absolutely everything we could have asked for. This year, for our anniversary, we made a trip out to Avalon to visit all of our favorite places and of course we had to stop by the Icona! We had lunch in the Avalon Brew Pub, where we had had our tastings with the Icona staff, as well as multiple meals during our wedding stay the year before. The food was delicious, as was the beer my husband got! We had the loaded macaroni and cheese just like we had had at our wedding and it definitely did not disappoint! After our burgers and sandwiches, the server brought us out a special anniversary dessert! We both felt very special and enjoyed our dining experience! My only regret is t hat we didn't have room for more food! I definitely plan on visiting again, and this time for dinner because I got a peak at the dinner menu online and some of the descriptions sound absolutely amazing. Definitely a great experience!

Everything would have been great except the table next to us brought an iPad no headphones for their kid. I don’t want to hear wheels on the bus while dining spending hard earned money. It’s not right and I feel staff should be on top of that. I can’t bring in my radio play Howard Stern...

Beer wasn’t bad, but only had one b/c the waitress only came to the table to take our initial order and didn’t come back until we had to ask for the check.

Apps - Pretzel was good. Cheesesteak dumplings were good as well. Didn’t like the wings. Overall apps overpriced by $4-$5 each

Dinner - Seafood Bouillabaisse, do not recommend. Over priced, the bread bowl that came with it was stale and hard as brick. The seafood had me on the toilet all night. Caesar salads were standard. Chicken sandwich was ok.

Spilled a tray of dirty dishes on my wife and then the waitress disappeared. The manager came over and laughed it off. What an idiot. Proceeded to comp us one beer but no offer to dry clean clothes. Just laughed. Only came over after busboy told him of the mess! Beer is good but the food was cold and tough. Not sure if anyone in charge is actually wAtching anyone. Never again and you should be aware of the unprofessional service and management. One word sums up the entire operation: unbelievable!

Our service was okay. The server wasn't anything to write home about.

Our food was not very good. I got a salad with grilled chicken on it. The chicken was so dry; it was awful. My daughter's food was just okay.

We were staying at Icona Avalon and had no desire to go back to this place, even though it would have been an extremely convenient place to dine.

We were there the week before the Caesar salad & chopped salads were really good. This last time there was hardly any lettuce on the plate & the dressings were just drizzled over what was there. Their was protein salmon & chicken and that was ok. Left hungry though.

We have been to the Avalon Brew Pub many times and have always enjoyed it. However, the service was just not great this time. I think it was a combination of the server and the kitchen, but it was really slow. And the food was just ok. Hopefully it was just an off night.

The Avalon Brew Pub is nice and the food is standard and solid. They do, however, need to start over on their buffalo wing dish. They are really sub-par which is surprising for a brew pub. We had to send them back. Perhaps they were having an off night, but would suggest not risking it or at least inquiring before ordering.

Place is really cool looking. Nice vibe. Service was excellent. I had a chefs special burger and it was pretty bland. For 17 bucks I expected better. The ahí tuna was very good and was presented very nicely. The calamari was also very good with a nice twist of jalapeños and olives. My wife had the prime rib sandwich and it was one of the best we've ever tasted. Overall a nice experience. I'd give it another visit.

Poor service meaning we could not find our server to get the check. Our entrees came out while we were still eating our appetizers. None of us liked our food, my "seared ahi" tuna was similar to what comes out of a can. The beer was ok.
