I love their filet but it's not on the menu anymore.
I ordered a salad with dressing on the side, topped with chicken breast and had to send it back as it was dressed and wilted. The new salad came with tasteless chicken and brown edged lettuce. A real disappointment.

Food was quite good. Tops was the calamari appetizer (good for 4). The calamari was tender and lightly breaded and included hot peppers and olives along with a tasty sauce. The entrees were all delicious. Prices were resort prices.

The CHEERS of Avalon. A terrific place for a family meal, a good adult beverage, and no pretense.

Service was excellent. We had a large group and everyone had a good time. Kid friendly. Would book again when at the beach.

Food was okay. Portions on prix fixe menu were small. Pasta primavera was disappointing. Menu on OpenTable is not accurate, especially regarding vegetarian options. Restaurant website is correct.

Don't get the scallops! They are heavy on seasoning and the taste lasts in your mouth. Our server was so nice. The food came pretty quickly. I think the quality of the food didn't quite match the prices.

Very small portions + entrees priced $10 higher than they should be. Brett is an excellent waiter.

Good deal Tuesday nights for $17.99 and kids $5. Like that it's on Open Table.

Not crowded, off night. Drinks very expensive, but food was good and service generally good. Will likely go back.

Decent food. A little high priced for what you get. A bit better than average pizza. Mussels Fra Diavolo was a ba bit bland, although mussels were fresh and cooked well. Calamari was solid and included fired peppers and fried olives (nice touch). Decent beer selection and good bar. Service was good. All in all, a positive experience and a bit better than average.

The dining room has plenty of space so they do not crowd you in. Staff was great and the food was very good. Will be coming back. Great big bar..

A staple of the Avalon restaurant scene, run by a fabulous family and always a good experience in our years going there. Can't go wrong with the Rock N Chair!

Sat in booth upstairs. Great food had the flat steak special. Perfectly done! Wasn't super crowded, they let us sit and talk. Great service.
Casual, live music later in evening. Nice bar crowd.

We were there for New Years Eve using regular menu. We very much enjoyed meal and ability to talk with the other couples without having to shout at each other

Dined in the off season with limited options. The shrimp scampi was very good. My spouse had a BLT which was fine. We had an outdoor table.
