Nice outdoor dining

Stopped by for lunch one day, and they were able to seat us outside on the deck, under an umbrella. Had a variety of dishes - omelettes, salads, burgers & wraps, your typical lunch fare. Everything was very good, tasting fresh & very well prepared. Our waitress was attentive (refilling... read more

Everything on 7-mile island is expensive. Having said that, the food and service was good. Everyone in our party had salads and we had the spinach artichoke dip as an appetizer. We had a bottle of Hawks Haven wine - proprietors blend. It was okay. Nice to have option to purchase since we didn't bring a bottle with us. But... More

Kudo's is our favorite restaurant in Avalon. The food is delicious and we enjoy eating outdoors on the porch when weather permits. We ate there several times during our recent vacation and we will definitely go again. We especially like their seafood dinners. The portions are huge. This place is well suited for families as well as couples. Highly recommend.

Visited for breakfast. Flavors (especially potatoes) were good. Pancakes could have used a little more griddle time, but they were fresh....not from under a headlamp. The biggest negative was a less than attentive waitress. And the coffee was not very hot when the refills finally came. I would probably give it another try though.

What a surprise! Went into Kudos for breakfast on turnover day looking for a place where the line wasn't tooo long. What a find! The breakfast quesadilla is to die for! Omelet very good and- only if you like sweet- the banana bread French toast drenched in syrup and topped with walnuts and fresh bananas was a hit. Nice atmosphere... More

Neat clean restsurant with indoor and outside seating. Wish I could say something really good about the food. The seating hostess was pleasant and wanted us to have a good experience. Staff should relax and train waitresses better. My maryland crab soupwas tasty and edemame predictable unfortunately, we had to send both back because they were cold. 😟 cannot recommend... More

Great BYOB with a diverse menu and large portions. You will not leave hungry. They also have an option where you can purchase a bottle of wine from a local winery and if you don't finish the bottle with your meal, you just take the rest with you.

We ate dinner at Kudo's this week. Service was excellent, restaurant was full and the staff was friendly. We ate inside because it was too cool to eat on their deck. Our dinners were delicious. We are repeat customers and have always had excellent food and service at this restaurant. We plan to return many times. We highly recommend it... More

I just had breakfast there and thought I should write the review while still nauseous. We are off season so not busy no reason to over cook an over easy egg . The sausage (probably the culprit of my indigestion) was neither a link nor a paddy just flattened sausage meat. The potatoes were not home fries at all but... More
