Breakfast & super clean

Great breakfast selection and great waitress! Super clean with a good open/close schedule. You could eat outside or in. Right on the main street with easy access.

Excellent meal. They have a nice variety on the menu. My wife and I both had seafood selections. Who ever was cooking knew what they were doing, well prepared and tasty. Artichoke dip for appetizer was very good. I had a cup of clam casino soup that was fantastic. Will definitely go back.

We have frequented Kudos for several years and are always pleased . Their food is delicious and service excellent. They offer indoor and outdoor dining. We visited several times for dinner in September and ate outdoors on the porch. I had stuffed flounder and my husband had chicken. Both entrees were absolutely delicious. They welcome families and couples. We highly... More

Went to this place last week for breakfast. Nothing fancy or unusual but nice atmosphere, good food and typical pricing. Recommended for breakfast.

I could describe my experience in three letters OMG, but that wouldn't do this place justice! My wife and I set out to try a different restaurant at a different shore point, and chose Avalon. Being a restaurant owner myself, I am a bit discriminating and tend to nit-pick when out to dinner, which my wife finds slightly annoying. Well... More

We went after a recommendation froma friend, 3 couples, 3 toddlers and 6 adults. The server was very nice and attentive but the food was absolutely terrible. Ordered our daughter mac and cheese, it was kraft from a box, tasted awful, she didn't touch it. Our calamari was the best thing we had. The broiled seafood combo was bland, no... More

My family and I went to Kudos for breakfast this morning. The server was nice, and the food was typical breakfast fare. I've had better elsewhere. There was a kid's menu, but it was a laminated list of food. My daughter was asking for something to draw on. Nope, sorry kid. Fortunately, the food came out pretty quickly. We won't... More

We enjoyed our dinner - salmon & crab cakes. The food was good, nice presentation, but not a lot of food.

Me and my girlfriend come back at least once every summer for traditional kudos lunch. The food is just very good and it is very affordable in my opinion. And it obviously makes it better when you're in the beautiful area of Avalon. I highly recommend going in the afternoon or is not nearly as crowded as it is at... More
