Food took an hour and a half to come out. Burger lacked any flavor and pizza was not cooked enough. Service was exceptional!

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.

Even though we had a reservation we were not sat in the restaurant, rather placed in some kind of overflow area (there were tables available). They did not serve eveyrthing with the meal listed on the menu

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.

Crab cake sandwich was very disappointing. Definitely not lump crab. Tasted more like claw meat. Otherwise great place. Next time I’ll order a burger. Calamari was excellent.

Food and beer were tasty. Took a very long time to get two wraps and a burger — about an hour. Then one of the wraps was given to a takeout order by mistake. The staff was very nice and comped the wrap.
The place has potential but seems like the kitchen was struggling, despite not being very crowded for lunch.
