It is a small restaurant in Carytown with a large beer menu, but it is expensive. For the price of the beer & food, I was never very impressed with the quality. It had a fun atmosphere though.

Our server Trisha was very accommodating and attentive. Food is pretty good. Fried brussel sprouts were delish, flatbread pizza's were just ok, not 'well-done' enough for my taste but good flavor. Sandwiches were huge. Sweet potato fries were sweet n salty, crispy n soft - very good. Huge beer menu by the bottle and large draft selection on the chalk... More

Renovations preserve old Richmond with contemporary look. Feels more open. Despite crowd didn't feel cramped and service was excellent. Food was very good . I had the duck breast and wife had salmon. This was after sampling 2-3 excellent appetizers . Will tell all my friends and will definitely be back!

Avalon has friendly service, fresh food, original ideas. Great wine list. Great dark wood in an old fashioned bar. Interesting dishes, like shrimp with Couscous instead of grits. Brussel sprouts sliced up and thrown in a griddle with garlic and pine nuts. Truffle French fries! Never been disappointed. Even small plates are generous for the price, enough for the table... More

We came for happy hour on friday night. They have a nice bottled beer selection. I needed a snack so I ordered the bibb salad with basil ranch dressing and a basket of homemade bread and butter. The salad was incredible, so fresh. It made me want to order dinner items as well. We will be back another night. The... More

I went there with a friend for drinks & appetizers since we had a coupon/offer. From what I understand Avalon has been there for a while. The service was good, but the place is dark and doesn't have much to offer in atmosphere. I thought the food was ok, but they had a very limited menu. To be honest, I'm... More

We had a Living Social deal for Avalon. We were very disappointed in the food choices. They may be great for someone else, but we felt it was very limited and overpriced. We don't be going back.

This is one of my favorite places to eat in Richmond. The food is excellent. The bar is fun and not over crowded. The prices can be on the high side, but you can't beat the food.
