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!

Food and service were outstanding, had to compliment the chef on the sesame tuna, fantastic. Will definitely go again next time we’re in Avalon.

I've been coming to Avalon virtually every summer during my 50 yrs on the planet. This was about the 5th time I'd been to the Rocking Chair. Meals were always solid and fairly priced. I've never had a complaint until last night. The place was not very busy and now I know why. 3 of us ordered the surf (4... More

After being seated, we waited 10 minutes and no one approached our table. Other tables were seated and waited on. We finally had to flag down a waiter, who turned out to be delightful and very accommodating. The lobster bisque was good, the tuna with wasabi was excellent. My husband enjoyed his mussels immensely. We asked about sitting outside, there... More

They are very generous with their Martinis and mine was made perfectly. The Mac and cheese which my son had was to die for. My daughter's filet was cooked perfectly as we asked. The service was great and the outdoor deck is where to eat on a nice night. Happily pleased!

Bad experience overall. My nephew's pizza came out after the rest of us were done. I had a hair in one of my wings. Disappointing. Food was okay when it eventually was served. We won't be coming back.
