The husband and I were in Avalon on vacation and were told we should eat here. The drinks were great! We got their Moscow Mules, loved them! My entrée was ok, I ordered the scallops and was not impressed. They were overcooked, but the flavor was good. It also came with carrots, but there were literally 3 carrots on my... More

We went for dinner. We started with ahi tartare which was amazing. I do not care for tuna but this was delicious! My Caesar salad was very well done and made fresh. The Buffalo burger was juicy and cooked perfectly.

Lovely restaurant. Good food. We sat on the heated patio, where it was plenty warm. Good food & drinks. We had dinner between 5&6 pm and received 2 free tickets to the movies at the Casino. Nice incentive. We had the brussel sprouts, which were a bit too sweet. We enjoyed the filet, and the flank steak. Both great.

Went to the Avalon Grill three times in a six-day visit to Avalon--twice for dinner and once for Happy Hour. What a great restaurant! The servers and bartender couldn't have been more attentive. The food was excellent! When we went to Happy Hour there were some yummy snacks--we particularly liked the two types of popcorn that were offered. In my... More

Our favorite dining experience on Catalina Island was the Avalon Grille. This beautiful restaurant offers farm fresh ingredients and creative dishes. Out waitress was outstanding -- all of her suggestions for drink and menu items were spot on. We even chatted with the manager, who was both friendly and professional. We topped off our meal with the Salty Garibaldi Ice... More

We reserved a table at the Avalon Grille and were really looking forward to it. The experience didn't live up to those expectations, beginning with us having to insist on sitting away from the doorway (which was draughty and cold on a windy and wet night) and then following through with inexplicably hurried service that cleared plates rather too quickly...

Excellent banana foster cheesecake. The hostesses are amazing and friendly. Will definitely be back again. The shrimp was seasoned to perfection and the best Brussels sprouts with pork belly.

Have a Wrigley Martini or one of their inventive Margarita variations. Good appetizer and salads menu, entrees a bit pricey but excellent. Upscale furnishing, bar. Somewhat inattentive spotty service.

We went here as a package with the Pavilion hotel, both owned by Santa Catalina Island Co. I was concerned the quality might be reduced by the arrangement, but fellow hotel guests assured us that wasn't the case. So, we followed their lead and ordered the grilled octopus that was excellent. The waiter explained that it was marinated before cooking,... More
