Basically a greasy spoon diner with cocktails a-plenty! Famous for its weekend hangover breakfast - in case you really can't get enough!

Great getaway vibes on the weekends. Local artist singing and stroking the guitar along with a boxed backup. Fun place for a drink, a dance and hamburger. Receive a free islander straw hat with the drink of the day.

I love Wednesday, hamburger, fries and a drink at a great price, you cannot beat this if trying to stay within budget. It is one of the places I visit if there on a Wednesday

Wanted refreshing adult beverages with a view of he harbor. As Avalon faces east, no sundowners over the ocean happen. But the staff pour with a heavy hand, and the ambience is old school Tiki Bar. Just the thing for 5 o'clock somewhere.

Stopped here for a few drinks and appetizers. Had a booth that had a perfect view of the street and beach. Very relaxing and fun. Changed into my bathing suit in the bathroom and jumped in the water. A perfect day.

Tight quarters, but friendly staff. Good drink selection Spicy drinks. Amazing ahi tuna- like butter. Went back later to get burgers to go. Delicious curly fries (especially) when tipsy

Spicy vodka shooters and tacos. The swordfish tacos were phenomenal. If you can score the front two tables, you will have a view of the beach while eating.

Omelet with spinach and mushrooms was very good. Instead of mixing the ingredients with the egg and cooked, the spinach and mushrooms were rolled into a egg wrapper like a burrito. Fruit side was fresh with a nice variety.

Great little party place with some tasty drinks!! Food is okay, service is okay. A little dark and sticky but aren't most little party holes? I think it's a Catalina must at least once. And don't forget to buy your luau Larry hat while there.
