Nice restaurant

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

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

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

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 beverages, checking on our food, etc....) While it's more expensive... 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.
