We had tapas and sushi. Food looked lovely but sushi really didn't taste like much. We ordered Descanso roll and were disappointed at how expensive their signature sushi was and how utterly bland it was. Tapas were OK even though menu said tapas came with crackers, none were served. Dinner for two was mediocre for nearly $100. So saying, the... More

I have stopped into CC's many times over the years and by far this is my favorite place in Avalon. Tables with oceanfront views inside or out on the patio, enjoy delightful coffees, deserts and foods that are so yummy and unique, sushi, beer, wine, bubbles, sake....on top of all that.....a darling and oh so one of a kind gift...

We were looking for gelato and came to Gallagher's. They have several choices, all were delicious. I ordered Vesuvius molten chocolate (chocolate cake with hot chocolate sauce inside). It was tasty! They also serve sashimi, Foccacia pizza, fresh salads, and other tasty treats. Atmosphere and service were delightful.

Just soup took a while to come out and when it did it was pretty warm not hot like soup is normally served.

I didn't get a fully meal there. We saw the dessert display and we had to try somethings. The apple tart was absolutely delicious. The prices are a bit high but it was really tasty

Loved the sushi! Great options. And we snuck in a wonderful dessert (flourless chocolate cake), too. Yummy.

When we asked our waitress at The Lobster Trap what she recommended for dessert, she said that her own restaurant didn't hold a candle to the desserts at CC Gallagher, we decided we should try it. Hands down the best choice of sinful desserts and coffees. They also offer regular faire, however, the dessert is the real reason to visit... More

Stopped into this restaurant for the first time and felt comfortable in their warm and artsy atmosphere. Enjoyed a bowl of Roasted Poblano & White Bean Soup which was very tasty and a side salad. The menu is quite eclectic with an Asian and Mediterranean flair. They also serve wine, beer and Sake. Will definitely visit again.

Thank Teresa L
