Tasty food, but where's the crab

My family dined at the Rock 'n Chair in Avalon, NJ. We haven't been there for about 18 or so years. The original Rock 'n Chair was amazing but they closed a long time ago and was reopened under new management years ago. Everyone in my group had a wonderful meal. My was extremely tasty too but... read more

I love it here! We went for dinner on a Friday night and it was a group of almost 20 and the waitstaff took excellent care of us! They were so attentive and detailed that it was nice and made us feel welcomed and not like an annoyance which some places do when it is such a big group. The... More

Large, spacious restaurant. Family friendly. Food good but not as good as I think they aspire to. Portions are good.

We had lunch at the Rock n' Chair. Perhaps it was "pre-season", but the food was "meh", nothing special. I had the fish tacos, my wife had a salad with salmon. The killer at many of these places is drinking made Ice Tea with Avalon water, yuk!

If you hate crowds, this is the place to go for breakfast. Of course, that may be because the food is lousy. We both ordered Eggs Benedict and the eggs were served hard boiled. The tonato juice was warm but they did give me a glass of ice to cool it off. The outside deck has a great ambiance about... More

We are in AV every weekend. And have been going to the chair for years. My wife and I had our 2nd date there years ago. Stopped in a few weeks ago intent on having dinner. As soon as we sat at the bar we noticed a terrible smell. That sour smell that can only be associated with a dirty... More

Stopped in here for some drinks and dinner w/ my wife and grown children. Bartender was doing you a favor waiting on you .... service for food was ok but food is "fair" and I'm being kind ..... other options are out there ... I'm told that the management has a "don't care" attitude.... it's a shame in this great... More

Excellent service and my food was good. We were there on half price sushi night, so most people in my party ordered it and weren't exactly pleased. But who orders sushi when you're not in an Asian restaurant?! I can't comment. We had a party of 12 including a few kids and the wait staff was great. No delays with... More

We went to this restaurant 2 nights ago and had an early dinner with my 2 grandchildren. The service was good and the food was also. Three of us had the shrimp franchaise and one the beef shishkabob. The kid split a kids dinner. Everyone was happy. The key lime pie was also great. We will be back next year.
