Brought my 4 year old and wife and paid to go fishing. There is a 2 dollar site seeing fee for everyone else but that's ok. You can feel the pier move in the wind...I liked that though lol.

We went for fishing only. The game room that you have to walk through to get to the pier is obnoxious with lots of thug looking townies and teenagers. We did catch decent sea mullet on the south side. I would prefer a pier with a solid floor so no cell phones and other gear can fall into the ocean.... More

Food, night life, and fishing! Friendly staff, beautiful ocean views while eating. Locally owned and family operated! Great spot for family fun!

To have to pay to walk in pier is wrong. Plus it's from the 70 , s from the looks. Not very appeasing

If you like OLD, then this is your place. Had a little snack shop, fishing supplies and video games. Seems a little sketchy, maybe because it's old. There is a fee to walk down the pier. Been to many piers this is by far the worst I've seen.

Avalon Pier... Well let's see... They hate tourists, they are your typical locals. Drunks and druggies. Need drugs? Go here...and Jolly's. Conveniently they are close to each other. Not for families or non drug users. You also have to pay to walk on the pier. Go to Jennette's Pier.

we saw fire works from the pier, it was very nice. it was next day after a hurricane, so water was cold, but waves were high, very beautiful. not much touristy, so we could relax in peace.

I went to the pier so that one of my friends could wave hello to her mom on the webcam. We enjoyed the game room for a bit, then took a walk out to the end. The moon was incredible shimmering on the water. I was a little scared because the pier was rocking a bit as we walked, but... More
