We stopped here for lunch after sightseeing in Avalon. The restaurant has multiple restaurants and levels. We sat in the outside bar overlooking the beach. We enjoyed the food including chicken wings and wraps. Good selection of draft beers and friendly staff made for a relaxing lunch over the beach. Prices were reasonable.

Had breakfast Monday morning with the wife. It once again did not dissappoint! Hayden, our server, who we had met 2 weeks earlier on a Sunday morning breakfast, took excellent care of us once again! He was very professional and cordial with us. Never once taking the liberty of asking us our names or getting too in the way of... More

Hi Joe, Thank you for sharing your experience. The island as a whole has had an issue with slow internet this summer... especially on weekends. We are working on it and addressing it with our internet provider. More

Windrift was a perfect place to stay. Children loved its proximity to the beach and the good sized pool. The hotel's restaurant was delicious and had a great view. The rooms were quiet and adequate in size with comfortable beds. The shower was okay and the staff should have left replacement shampoo and lotion which they did not. The proximity... More

Didn't stay at hotel, but ate at their restaurant. Had a very delicious meal. Sushi, calamari, cheesesteak wontons, surf and turf, and roasted chicken. Everything was delicious but the best part was the Bananas Foster cheesecake! Fabulous service. Was there on a Sunday night at 730 and didn't need a reservation.

The night began with the Vegan Jersey Roll, which was superb, and ended with the Jersey Girls' roll on the dance floor. The DJ was as great as the band and the service all around superb! Great food, atmosphere, and crowd from Start to Finish. The Windrift is what The Jersey Shore can and should always be! Can't wait to... More

We had a great lunch at the Windrift Tiki bar. Glad it was a Friday because the spaces tight but worth every minute. We had a chicken caeser wrap, Olive & mozzarella skewers & and Alaska sushi roll. Food came out in a timely manner and the place is very clean. The staff is friendly and I would go back... More

We checked in this morning to find out the second floor restaurant would not be open this entire week. When I inquired why I was told that it is wedding season. I would understand if they actually had a wedding booked for tonight but no wedding until next Saturday. I am disappointed in this poor customer service choice by the... More

Weather young or old, the Windrift has something for you! We didn't stay here, this is a review for the bar scene only. There are many different bars here, all with different themes and slightly different crowd. Great place to go to party on the beachin Avalon.
