We had breakfast on the porch on a Sunday morning in August 2014. We were meeting my son's girlfriend's parents, so it was a somewhat special occasion. I took a chance on eating there, but the fact that they took reservations and had outside dining sealed the deal. It was a lovely morning. The food was wonderful, and the service... More

Doesn't end there. Barmaid asks how dinner. I replied terrible. She ask why did you eat a slice each. We reply cause we... More

We stopped in Avalon for a late lunch and had a hard time finding a restaurant that was open. Luckily we found the Rock N Chair was open. We sat at the bar and glad we did. Bert, the bartender, was great. It was fun talking about different subjects. I ordered the southwest crab roll which was pretty good. It... More

We were delighted with our dinner last week. There were 5 in our party, and we arrived just after 6:00. Everything was delicious, from soup to dessert. I had the seared sea scallops, and while they might have been just slightly overcooked, they were still wonderful. I loved the pickled fennel and the grilled asparagus. Others enjoyed Cioppino, salmon and... More

While this is not inexpensive, it is on par with other establishments in Avalon, NJ. We had seafood, chicken parm, risotto, and a couple appetizers. Everything was great! Will definitely be back!

This restaurant has a wonderful large porch for outside dining. The menu has many options and there are daily specials. I had the scallops which were nicely prepared. The presentation was also very nice. Our service was spotty. Soup was served across the table and we were expected to hand her dishes or reach to receive them. The table was... More

Friends took us to Rock 'n Chair for breakfast when we were visiting from out of town. My friend and I had Tuscan omelets, which were fine. Our husbands had the Belgian waffle and French toast, and they were not impressed. One problem is that they had to ask for maple syrup; the server brought it about 5 minutes later,... More

I met up with friends from high school and had a lovely dinner. The food was outstanding and imaginative. There was so much food, we had enough for dinner the next night - and it microwaved well. My friend had a pasta dish that included chicken, shrimp and crab - an interesting and delicious combination. I had the chicken marsala... More

The food was good and the earlybird specials were varied and well worth the price. The restaurant was clean and nicely but simply decorated with a choice of outdoor seating. It appeared to be a local favorite as the evening continued. The service was good and the ambiance inviting. It was a nice surprise. Give it a try if in... More

Thanks Bert! Perfect Bloody Mary's! Stopped back later in the week to check out the Martini Bar. Was a little disappointed it wasn't open. But had some fun at the bar meeting folks. Nice place. Definitely recommend for a fun drink out!
