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.
Great food and service and locally brewed beer on tap.
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.
Overpriced for the food and portion size
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.
Average at best. Warm draft beer a turn off
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
All very good. Had a great experience!
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.
Always a good but not spectacular meal with good service.
We ordered from the early dinner special menu ($17.99 inclusive).
It was very good. The only negative was the rolls seemed to have been reheated.
Great meal with a great view of Avalon. Restaurant had been recommended by some locals and we were glad we took their advice. Had an appetizer of cape may salts and entries of crab/risotto and excellent swordfish. Menu included a gluten free pizza for our granddaughter. Will certainly come back next time we are in Avalon.
I had very good service. It was my second time with the same waiter. It was very attentive.
The food was very good and the atmosphere was nice but my family asked for the 4 course pre-fix dinners at 17.99. The menu said wine, soda, salad, entrée and dessert. But we were charged for our wine and a soda. I feel like we were overcharged $18.00. I didn't realize it until I got home.
Not happy with the food or the pricing. service was good.
A great atmosphere and very good live music. Outdoor seating is very comfortable and a great view of the town. Food was acceptable for a shore restaurant.
Ordered Caesar salad with chicken. When salad arrived there were 4 small strips of cold chicken, three stale croutons and barely any dressing to know it was a Caesar salad. Personally I would not dine there again.
We had the worst service we have ever had a restaurant. We frequent this restaurant a lot since we spend the summer in Avalon. We were not seen by a waiter for 25 minutes. We asked twice if we could get a waiter to no avail. A waiter finally took our order and explained he would give it to the girl who was supposed to have our table. The girl who was supposedly our waitress never apologized or explained the confusion, never introduced herself, never refilled our drinks or checked on our food. Finally when our waitress brought our check we asked her if she was super busy and she scoffed at us an basically ran away.
We let the manager know but will not be coming back to the Chair.
Made reservations with two teenagers . Of course they were late getting to the rocking chair. The restaurant was very nice and allowed us to sit down 30 minutes later. We
loved the food ,loved the service . The bar was somewhat quiet, no music that night they must start later. We had dinner about 7 PM. Overall nice vibe ! have fun at the shore!
The service was fair and our main course came before the appetizers were finished. Or dinner reservations were at 8:00 but we felt we were rushed because of the music venue starting at 10:00. Food wasn't anything gourmet or over the top.
Year after year I fail to understand the price/quality model of shore dining at its finest. This time: translucent fish dish.
Really good food, nice server. Just felt a little old
We had an outstanding meal and live music that provided an enjoyable atmosphere.
had fun... food was pretty good... wait staff had us settle up check twice as they left which was slightly annoying... but overall it was nice to be at this crazy busy spot during the off season and really enjoy it. Guitar singer, Johnny's cousin Steve was fabulous! loved him.
Seated promptly on the porch as requested. Our server, Marybeth, was very attentive and suggested the scallops which were perfectly cooked and a very large portion. During the summer months parking could be a problem but luckily they are open all year. Great spot for an elegant dinner or apps at the bar!
Six of us ate on Saturday evening at the Rocking Chair. They were extremely friendly, great service and terrific food. They even let us bring our own birthday cake and the waitresses help sing. We enjoy the rocking chair for their live music. You will relax and have fun. Have a great time -casual dress
I thought only diner witnesses called people dear. Always feel 100 when I hear this. Realize we were there during Early Bird so entree was decent. First time here since I always heard that it wS a "meat market". Families very evident. People I know coming to Avalon may expect more.
Good food - not great. But has a big selection - main dinners, burgers, sushi, salads.
Nice atmosphere especially on outdoor porch. Wines by the glass very small, and house wine selections are not great.
The baked Brie appetizer was very good as was the Shrimp Francaise and Burrata Ravioli with broccoli rabe. We ate during the Early Bird special time which included a complementary glass of wine and dessert...excellent value.
