The buffalo burger is not to be missed! Steven, at the bar, is a true master of mixology; be sure to ask for his opinion on what to sip!

Our party of 4 had a great lunch there. We ate outside. Among us we had tomato soup, lobster salad, Caesar salad, and buffalo burger. Of note, the lobster salad and a reasonable amount of lobster that justified the price. There could have been more grilled corn, which was a nice touch. The buffalo burger tasted like lean beef.

Perhaps best place to eat on the island. Great space and good views of the passing parade. Menu offers enough variety for everyone in your party.

We enjoyed the atmosphere, and were very happy with the service. All the employees we met were very knowledgeable and experienced. The problem was the food was just not good. It was eatable but not so good. We had to return a few of the dishes for very fishy smell, and they exchanged our dishes with no issues whatsoever. The... More

We stopped by a couple of times for a cocktail and once for a light lunch. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. We'd go back on our next visit to Catalina.

Excellent spot if you get a table by the window. Loved the Cobb salad and the meat and cheese board. Worth the price for excellent quality food.

Not a bad restaurant, but not anything out of this world either. I'm not certain I would go back on a future visit to Avalon.
