Great location, great views, upper deck a must see on summer evenings. Get there early for Tuesday wing night. Family friendly. Specials every weekday evening for meals. Prime rib night is good value. Lots of bars within one building.

We haven't been here for over 5 years - went off season for the mid week Prime Rib Special. At $23 it was a bargain -- see the photo.

My wife and I had a trio of appetizers for dinner with friends on a Saturday. We arrived at 5:00pm, so the Signature Lounge was not super busy yet and we opted to sit at the bar. All of the bar staff were very friendly and helpful with recommendations for our meal. We chose the surf & turf skewers, crab... More

Were there twice in a week - on a quiet mid-week night it was too big to be comfortable (we were the only table of 4 in the place) but on the weekend, the band (cover band) was decent and the music between sets was good; lots of screens to follow sports.

Ate at this restaurant twice this week. I totally did not expect such good food at a restaurant located on the beach. Best lobster bisque I ever had....so much lobster in it! Awesome ahi tuna! If you go during the summer....sit up on the deck where the tables have umbrellas. Great service. Avalon has a really nice, clean beach. There... More

What a wonderful place for fun, relaxation, entertainment, fabulous food and wide variety at that, and service was the best. You can't ask for a nicer group of people who cater to your every need with a smile. The pool was only steps away from the beach. I had a choice but preferred the pool. Met a couple of celebrities,... More

Cannot beat the location: new bar overlooks the dunes and beach. Drinks are good, as is the vibe. Food is average at best and pricey.

Love this place to hop off the beach for lunch. You can sit up high on the deck and enjoy. I love their chicken salad. Best I've ever had. It is also a great place to go back to for nightly entertainment.
