Went for an early Saturday’s dinner and ordered from the fixed price menu. The food was excellent: Salad, chicken marsala with fresh vegetables and mashed potatoes in a lovely sauce and Keylime pie. Despite it being fairly crowded, our server was highly attentive and we really never felt like we were waiting too long for any part of our meal. Love eating outside and beautiful fall weather. Definitely a bargain without stinking on portions or quality. Also, the bartender makes a wonderful martini. 😎👍

Surprisingly solid bar food with excellent pizzas, a burger and cocktails. Lots of outdoor seating and friendly service.

We always try to stop by when in town and although the noise level at the bar was a bit loud due to quizzo, we had a delightful meal. Our waitress Abby? Was very attentive and the food was yummy. I had the prime rib special which was very tasty and my mate had a gourmet burger which he enjoyed. Did not disappoint.

We had a 7:15 reservation and waited about 20 mins to be seated. The issue was a lack of staff…only four servers for a busy Saturday night. The servers, food runners, and hostess were all great. They worked very hard to make our meal and experience a good one.

With the exception of the lobster bisque which was excellent, the meal was 2 stars. Grouper tacos that the fish was so over fried, it was like eating pretzels. I guess we got the wrong thing or caught it on a bad Saturday, but we were really depressed to end our vacation with such a poor meal. Nothing ventured nothing gained, or in this case, lost.

Should have requested to sit outside on the patio. Indoors is quite dated. Food on the floor needed to swept up, air conditioner dripping onto the floor, and ceiling tiles that looked dirty and disgusting.

We really enjoyed our meal there. The service was excellent and the staff was very friendly. Exactly what you want for a dining experience at the beach. One of our meals was he baby back ribs. Excellent. We finished every last bit 😀

We had a reservation but had to wait because they were short staffed, which is understandable. Even with that, once we were seated, we were served right away and the food is always good, just a bit pricey.

Has a relatively early reservation for dinner for a Saturday evening after Labor Day. Still took a long time to be seated. Service, food, and general ambience were disappointing. Would not recommend.

Food was not good. Grouper was severely undercooked, vegies were cold and the salad was not in a salad bowl. Scallops ok but only 6 were included which is not OK for the price. Minimal wine in the glass - maybe 3 sips. Server was clearly over worked so we did not hold that against her. Will not visit again as it is well below other restaurants in Avalon.

The food preparation was not good. We were 4 and all of us found the food to be not very good. Not worth what they charge to eat there.

Great food and nice employees. Bar area was a bit loud but it didn’t bother us because we were seated on the other end of the restaurant. Great food and service. Would definitely go back when in Avalon again!

Excellent experience as usual. We deducted one star because the flatbread was bland, but the burger was great, the service was very good and the ambiance on the side deck was wonderful.

We made our reservation more than a day ahead on Open Table. We were given a choice of seating indoors or outdoors and chose outdoors. When we arrived it was 90+' so we asked to be seated under their large awning (which was still outdoors and only about a third full). The hostess gave us a hard time about not reserving with a preference for under the awning (which we explained we couldn't online; but she didn't seem to care), so she seated the six of us under a meager umbrella in the direct sunshine. It was much too uncomfortable to eat, but the hostess wouldn't budge, so we left.

Awful. Food was over cooked and the lobster ravioli was made with Ragu. Waiter was abhorrently bad. Barely saw him.

We have been Had our home in stone harbor for over 30 years and don't venture for dinner to often in to Avalon but Rock N' Chair was a nice change of scenery. The food was reasonably priced and was good not great but good. We enjoyed good drinks and good entertainment and would definitely visit again to try out different menu options they have a good varity and a large menu with something for everyone. They brought out my nephews food quick and were very friendly.

The food was excellent and we were seated promptly. Our food was served in a timely manner. Some plates could have been removed from the table such as soup bowl and salad plates, but this may have been the busboy responsibility but the waitress should have taken care of it. I would recommend this restaurant.

Scallops were very good, some of the other dishes were average. As most restaurants right now they were a bit understaffed, but they did a good job keeping things moving.

I ordered the char-grilled salmon. It was covered with big chunks of crab and a light sauce. Cooked beautifully.

As usual, the restaurant was very full, but somehow they managed to wait on our table of 4 with excellent service!

Not as expected. Stuffed shrimp $32.00. There were 3 small shrimp. Mostly veggies. Lobster Ravioli with Blush sauce was basically some lobster meet over some cheese ravioli with basic red sauce - $32.00. Arugula salad for 17.00. Really this wasn’t worth the price. Bourbon on ice seemed completely watered down by the time we got it.
