My family and I dined here last week and were impressed with the specials and offerings this place had. We had the special soft shell crabs, oysters, steak tartare, fluke, and the Brussels sprouts. Everything was delicious and up to par with a restaurant you may visit in a larger city. This chef has great imagination and seafood is fresh! Also a BYOB!

Ehh.. Listen we all know we are in Avalon no need for the snotty tude. I actually felt they were given directions to act holier than thou. Was it my low cut blouse..? Maybe.. Food was okay.. under seasoned. Tasted the steak, veggie sides, salads kit kat dessert & peach cobbler. Highlight of my meal was the dessert which is never a good sign. As an Avalon summer native I will not be returning to dine and spend $90+ a person WITHOUT alcohol..

This venue really needs to address their noise level, first of all. We were also somewhat disappointed with the food. Half of our group's entrees were oversalted--not enough to send back, but not pleasant either. At the end of our dinner the manager/owner asked how the meal was and we told her about the saltiness of the food--but there was no offer of say a dessert for the table or any accommodations. Our server was very nice, but had no idea who got what entree. Since they are really at the top of the price range for Avalon, I just expected more. I would not return.
