it is a pier, nothing fancy, outdated....I have to say that Janette's pier is much more informative and interesting, especially for families....overall I prefer the beach over a pier anytime

We didn't fish, but if you want to that will set you back $10. We just hung out. They sell beer. People fishing weren't too friendly. Good thing I had my buddies there with me! We enjoyed it for about an hour. I think it cost a buck to just go out on the pier. Oh, and did I mention... More

As an amputee I am limited to where I can fish; so I find Avalon Pier a great location for me. If I do not have gear with me, I can rent it!

I fish. I love to fish. I love to get a carry out from Awful Arthur's and eat on the pier while watching my line and hoping for a hit. One of these days I'm gonna catch a nice fish and take it over to Awful Arthur's and have them cook it up for me (that'll have to wait now... More

I stopped here just to check out the pier for fishing on a later trip. I thought the pier was set up nicely and very clean.

Grab a casual lunch in the small, quaint restaurant on the pier. It's very casual....the view is outstanding.

The "game room" scene inside the pier house is a bit "local" meaning they are a bit territorial and appear to dislike tourist that may be just "browsing" meaning not fishing.

I have been going to this pier for 10 yrs or more. While it isn't the most expensive, prettiest, or have all the bells and whistles of other piers, the staff is friendly, the pier is worn in (except the parts rebuilt after Sandy) and offers restrooms and cleaning stations. If you like to talk with the locals and just... More
