We got there (unbeknownst to us) around closing to order their Buffalo burger. We were looking at the menu and a man outside (manager/owner, I guess - he was not inside where the cooks were) scowled at us and in a very angry tone said "We are closed! 15 minutes ago!!" Sorry but how were we supposed to know that?... More

Tradition has always included an egg burrito and a beer first thing in the morning at Erics and watch the island wake up. Good stuff!

Been getting hamburger's from Eric's since I was a kid. I noticed that the meat is paper thin and the cost is high. Got two burger's with the hot dog, 1 order of fries and 2 drinks and it cost 29.29.Quite high for what you get, but that's Avalon.

Eric's is a landmark in Avalon. You can't miss the green exterior and the lines painted on the pier. Saddle up to a bar stool that faces the city or pier and enjoy some great food and drink while watching life go by. This isn't a place you want to hurry but a nice spot to journal, read a book...

We had the chowder in the bread bowls. It was really good, warm and filling. The service was good too. You had to eat at little tables outside but that is part of the Catalinia life.
