“Good clam chowder”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

We had the chowder in the bread bowls. It was really good, warm and filling. The service was good too. You had to eat at little tables outside but that is part of the Catalinia life.

“Best Fish Tacos!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Great place to grab a fish taco and a beer for lunch on the pier. I've never been disappointed and it is by far the best fish taco you'll find Avalon.

“Enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Just to sit on a pier, people watching couldn't get much better than sitting at Eric's. If you are lucky enough to snag one of the high tables you get to view the yachts, people and feel the ease of everyone enjoying their vacation. We stopped for a funnel cake and while it wasn't the best, it was ok. People around us seemed to be enjoying their food and drinks, we didn't hear complaints. What a great place for a quick bite before exploring the island. Don't forget to walk to the end of the pier to make this a great experience visiting Eric's.

“seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

we ate at Eric's on the Pier and tried the seafood sampler, calamari, shrimp and fish with fries and ice teas. I had never had calamari..for those who don't know, it is octopus! It was really good, not fishy, and did not taste like chicken!!

“Tried the Buffalo Burger at Eric's”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Pretty good buffalo burger at Eric's, but if you get a beer there is very limited seating. More seating and better options at the Fish and Chips operation on the Green Pier. The swordfish sandwich is a winner, and they have microbrews, as well.
