“Princeton is perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

Great atmosphere and food at this upscale eatery in Avalon!!!! Since the remodel the atmosphere is very upscale. The food is nicely presented and not the typical beach fare . It's a perfect place to go.

“Small meal and overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Food tasty but ordered salmon burger which was good but nothing else came with it and it was tiny. Overpriced also.

“Nice Shore Spot On Gold Coast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

In Avalon center of town - food was a pleasant surprise- no fried bar food here. The day we visited was 95 degrees so having the front of building and bar open with wide doors allowing a hint of a little ocean breeze made it very comfortable. Service was friendly and efficient. Price of drinks and food was reasonable given the high cost of everything in Avalon and Stone Harbor.

“Not worth the price”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

My husband and I stopped here on a rainy day to get a quick bite to eat. They have a nice porch area facing the main street in Avalon but (obviously) we had to sit indoors out of the rain. Anyway, we ordered chips and guacamole for $9.00. The chips were from a bag and there was approximately 1/2 cup of guacamole. Quite a disappointment. My husband ordered a seared ahi tuna appetizer and I had a citrus salad with fennel. The fennel was overcooked and impossible to eat. It was literally like chewing on tree bark. There were only a few pieces of citrus in the salad and overall it was a disappointing. The ambiance is nice for couples or families and there are TV's around the bar for watching sports. Great atmosphere but mediocre food (at best) and terrible prices for what they're serving. I've been here many times over the years and it seems to keep getting worse. Don't waste your money.
