Great restaurant open all year!

My husband and I had a great meal at Avalon Rose recently! It was a Sunday night at the end of September so it wasn't crowded though we hear it is on a Saturday night especially in the busy summer season. Our server Lauren was very attentive and friendly and gave us superb service. The food was... read more

This place is closed. La Vecchia Fontana has replaced it in the very same space. Could you please add the new restaurant? We've eaten there and I would like to leave a review. Thank you!

Went to Avalon Rose over Labor Day with a large party of ten adults. Servers, Angel and Lauren, were both attentive and pleasant. I rate them as way above average. Everyone was extremely happy with the food. Recommend the tuna tatar app, claw chowder, stuffed mushrooms... I had the rack of lamb and it was honestly the best I've had... More

The hostess seemed to have just woken up when we arrived. Our waitress was nice but everyone seemed on edge. I tried the award winning chowder, save some money and grab a bowl at wawa before you go. The food wad edible but nothing that could not be reproduced at any dinner. They atmosphere was creepy, bad music and outdated... More

Can't say enough good things about the food at this restaurant. There last night with a party of eight. Everyone raved about their orders. The stuffed mushrooms are over the top good (had them last week there also). This week I had that famous clam chowder; that could have seriously been the whole meal and I would have been happy....

Our dinner was the best I've ever had in Avalon. The food, both the taste and presentation, was perfect. From our starter salad to the Malt Ball dessert, the food was simply delectable! The waitstaff were attentive and friendly. Will certainly be coming back soon!

Enjoyed a delicious meal off season and again in July. Began with the award winning chowder - how could you not - it was delicious, filled with jumbo lump crab in just the perfect base, not too thick and not too thin. The blackened scallop appetizer was so flavorful and nice exterior crispness. Shared entrees of salmon and tuna and... More

Avalon Rose is a must visit gem. The restaurant has a cozy decor with wrap around bench seating for larger parties. The service was impeccable and the owner was very friendly with the guests. However, the highest grades go for the food. From the award winning clam chowder, to the scallop appetizer, to the steaks or fresh seafood special, this... More

Our table of 7 was less than thrilled with Avalon Rose. First of all, it's a somewhat stuffy environment (think hotel restaurant). When we called ahead and asked if it was appropriate for toddlers they assured us it was. It wasn't. Our party quickly shrunk from 11 to 7. The food was inconsistent. The scallops were great, but the swordfish... More
