We had two breakfasts at Kudo's during our recent stay in Avalon. Good food and nice service. We visited after Labor Day and the owner's wife waited on us. She was extremely cordial and informative. We ate at the outside tables. Inside seating is also available. They serve lunch and dinner however we didn't avail ourselves. Menu looked very nice.

Typical seashore restaurant - over priced and mediocre (at best) food. Not worth the visit. Ridiculous that I could not buy a glass of wine, only a bottle. The mashed sweet potatoes are simply not edible due to the high amount of sugar or syrup they use. The grouper was too much and overdone with an overpowering herbal crust. Please... More

Had a quick lunch here recently. Quite good, decent price. Very good service. My husband had a sandwich, while I had a salad, both were very good.

I loved the homefries they had. Everything else to me seemed pretty bland. My sister's sandwich did end up having a hair in it so she didn't finish it. Other than that, the service was great and we were able to enjoy the gorgeous weather sitting outside on their patio.

My son and I were walking by looking for a break from the pizza and quick foods of the beach. The menu had a lot of appealing items and we went for it. We were quickly seated and our waitress was quickly at our table. We ordered the spinach dip and it came covered in cheese. When we pulled the... More

After a wonderful day sitting on the beach, had a lovely meal, sat on the deck and enjoyed a seafood meal. Love the BYOB. The onion soup was salty, would not order it again. Only criticism was the lack of any creative dessert choices. Opted for ice cream down the street.

My boyfriend were walking through Avalon and looking for a nice place to have lunch one Saturday in July 2014. Kudos seemed to fit the bill. We walked in and asked to take a look at the menu. We liked what we saw so we asked to be seated. The couple seated after us were seated at a nicer table... More

This place use to be "Maggie's", but seems to have about same menu. Nice setting, friendly and attentive wait staff, and clean. Nice covered outdoor porch to sit and eat/drink. We ate breakfast inside by window. Enjoyed our time there, but a bit pricey for breakfast - however it is Avalon so kinda expected. Eggs were perfectly cooked to order... More

Seated outside in the cool breeze, we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our experience. The hostess was very kind and our waitress, Ciera, was the very best. Everyone was attentive and my Salmon dish was blackened to perfection. We will certainly return again and again. Enjoy! Chris Upper Darby, Pa.
