I was looking for a good bit casual place to eat in the off season (a Tuesday in Jan) and found it at the Avalon Brew Pub.

The crab cake sandwich was awful. The crab was clearly from a can. The server was understanding and removed from our bill.

The pretzel is great though.

Perfect mix of casual with a little upscale. Open all year so we enjoy visiting in the off-season, as well as summer. Went for NYE dinner with the kids and my husband was able to watch football while we enjoyed the beers they have on tap. cool vibe, with the kegs on the ceiling. They have a good variety of entrees and pub fare, picky about rolls & burger buns here are very good, and the fries are my favorite on the island. This visit I had the short rib entree and they were some of the best I've had. Better than expected and would definitely get them again. Our server was very sweet and attentive, never had an empty glass.

It was our first time at the Avalon Brew Pub! We are staying at Avalon Hotel so the convenience of walking downstairs was nice. The food was delicious - especially the Buffalo wings and Buffalo rock shrimp! Our waitress Sue - was so accommodating, friendly, and did an exceptional job! Ask for her if you can! If you like cocktails, I recommend the Tito’s Oasis of Peace and if you like beer get their stout under other! We can’t recall the name it was like beyond a reasonable stout or something along those lines! Definitely recommend this place!

We went back for the second time for the fish and chips. We were told that the fish was frozen and it would take too long to thaw, so we would need to make a second choice. The second choice was good, but not what we went for. Will probably call first next time to make sure we can get the fish.

I have been there many times across all of the seasons; never before has it been so eat-splitting noisy. The small bar area was jammed with animated, loud people. There was nothing management could do about that but it made conversation for the dining guests almost impossible.

Our server, Kaitlyn, was the only server on the floor, but there were also two runners/hostesses that assisted, all working together as a team. She did a great job meeting our needs and was very pleasant and friendly. Not a lot of variety of beers on tap this time of year but we made do with wine and cocktails! We started with the corn fritters, which were fine. The fish tacos and the crabcake sandwich were both good and the fries were very good. The cheesecake for dessert was good too, topped with raspberries and sauce and Kaitlyn added a scoop of ice cream too! Good place for a nice, casual meal with good beer and open year round.

Very disappointing experience. All 4 of us had different items off the menu and it was substandard for a good motel. The taco had very little fish in it and my friend got a dish with chicken and there was very little chicken. Second time I was there in 2 years and both times it wasn’t good at all. Too bad because I remember the days when the old Golden Inn had very good food.

The wings were great as was the salad. Drinks were good too. Our waitress did a great job considering she was the only waitress working.
The only negative was the hostess. She was rude and did not smile at all. She acted as if we were bothering when we walked in and said we had a reservation. Quit if you hate your job that bad. Just plan rude.

The food is very good at this Icona Avalon location. Great clam chowder and sandwiches for lunch. It is small inside so I like to have a reservation. Unfortunately, there is no outside views but the Pub/Brewery atmosphere is nice.

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.

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.
