We ate ate the bar in late August, and noted some good and some bad points about the place. Good: bar was a very comfortable place to eat, good selection of drinks, fine bartender. The beet salad was very good. Bad: the pizza was mediocre at best, the singer (using the term loosely) was terrible. We would have stayed for... More

Our family went there this past Saturday night with nine people. Everyone was able to find something to their liking and all the food was pretty good. They had a live band with great music in the evening and everyone had a good time.

It was just a quick trip over the inlet bridge from Sea Isle to Avalon to this spot for Happy Hour. We had drinks and appetizers which included the cheese steak eggrolls, white sauce mussels, and calamari. All very tasty and all very shareable. Service was very good. I like this spot.

Stopped here for dinner while in Avalon. Tuesday is 25% off your entire check, which made the meal less pricey than typical resort fare. I had a steak au poivre which was prepared just like I requested. The other diners had a blackened fish entree. Live entertainment also added to the enjoyment.

Went with my family for a nice dinner. Sat outside on a nice summer evening. The waiter was very attentive, food was served quickly and hot. Entire experience was worthwhile, will definitely return.

If your looking for a GREAT pizza...look no further!! It's brick oven, and the crust is thin, and flavored with what I think was garlic, and Parmesan cheese. I like mine with basil. It's a little bit bigger than a personal pizza. If yo don't want pizza try a taco, wings, salad or a panini. Their soups are also really... More

Sat by the bar for dinner. The atmosphere was okay just too loud for easy conversation. Their shrimp was fresh and steak was okay. The service was good. I'd come again but sit on the other side where it might be quieter.
