Had dessert and drinks. Nice bartenders. It is pretty in there. Wine cabinet specially built for bar. Desserts were ok. Nothing special. Drinks were as ordered.

We went for happy hour and enjoyed the experience very much. Great location, right on the waterfront and a few tasty happy hour appetizers to choose from.

I had a Cobb salad at the bar while my husband had the bison burger and both of us were happy with our choices! The bartender gave great suggestions and great service! We will go there again.

Had lunch and sat at the front tables which provide excellent views of the harbor. It is also great for people watching. Food was good and the servers were at attentive and friendly. The facility is appealing and well maintained.

Whenever I visit Avalon, I visit Avalon Grille as often as possible. It is located beach-front, right in the center of town. The decor is upscale tropical (think Tommy Bahama), the menu offers a variety of great choices, from steak to seafood, and the food is wonderful. Most recently (2016), my wife, newborn daughter and I spent Labor Day weekend... More

I really enjoyed my meal at the Avalon Grille. Being from Boulder, CO I enjoy a creative menu and good food, the Avalon Grille had both. My scallops were cooked just right and the flavours of morel mushrooms and confit fennel went perfect with it. No starch unless you got some bread and butter(perfect). Outside seating on the side patio... More

My wife and I recently spent our first wedding anniversary in Catalina and we made a reservation at the Avalon Grille for dinner. We'd heard and read good things about the restaurant but hadn't ever been there, so we hoped for the best. What we got was even better. Everything about our experience was fantastic, especially the service. It all... More
