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

My friends and I were staying down the road from the avalon pier and decided to walk up the beach to it one night. It was $2 to gain access to the pier but I think that is reasonable. It was very windy but a nice experience!

I'm not sure what some of these other people writing reviews expect but Avalon Pier is exactly what it was designed for, a fishing pier. First off you do not have to pay to park, you only pay a fee to drive out on the beach, second the $2.00 fee to walk out on the pier is no different then... More

We went to the Avalon Pier to fish, but wanted to check it out because of other negative reviews. The woman behind the counter had a very long cigarette hanging from her mouth - which she did not remove when she spoke. We inquired about the rates and she acted as if this question was too much trouble and pointed... More

The Pier atmosphere was killed by the racket of the video arcade and you had to pay to park and then pay for admission. No thanks!
