Great seafood at a reasonable price. Service was spot on! The seafood nachos and fried dill pickle appetizers were tasty.

There was 7 of us & all our meals were wonderful. Service was great. We got the snow crab legs which were delicious as well as the prime rib. Definitely would recommend going on the early side for dinner as it gets packed quickly.

Went for lunch during our stay in Avon. Was very pleased with the service and food. I and a friend of my 20 year old son had the fried oyster sandwich. My wife had the crab cake sandwich and my son had the Mahi-Mahi sandwich. The fried oyster and Mahi-Mahi were very good. The crab cake bordered on exceptional. Lots... More

Very strange decor. We were seated at an awkwardly large table for two people. Staff was not friendly. They had no idea what "gluten free" meant. Food was average. Would never go back.

If there's such a thing as modern home-style cooking, this is it. We went last night--two families with teens. Great fish tacos, and my husband made a meal out of the seafood nachos. They don't take reservations, though, and the place is small. A lot of people seemed to be doing takeout.

We ate at the Oceana's Bistro for Breakfast and it was very good. I can't say it was the best breakfast I've ever had, but it was good compared to the other options in the area. I ordered pancakes and an egg- both were cooked just as I asked. The pancake batter was different but good- very "cakey" in flavor.... More

I got a grilled chicken flat-bread with fries. First, this place has great specials on food and drinks that change daily. The sandwich's flavoring was great and these are some of the best fries I've ever had. Only complaint is that the lunch serving is significantly smaller than the dinner serving but the same price.

The restaurant is small, but it's just a neat place to stop for a quick lunch, snack, drink, etc. They have Weeping Radish Black Radish on tap, which is reason enough to stop there, but the food is pretty good as well, and there are specials every day.

They don't take reservations so you take a chance when you go that you may wait a while. The service was mediocre at best and the food wasn't great. In fact just about everything we ordered was Luke warm at best. I've read several reviews that said they always make it a point to stop and good food etc, but... More
