We are New Englanders, and so we know from good lobster salad. Simply out, this is THE BEST, and for two reasons. The portion is sumptuous: 2 big scoops of fresh meat. And they use no mayo, so the large scoops are pure, fresh lobster. Our party of six returned to Kudos today for lunch after two of us enjoyed... More

Ate breakfast before leaving from our vacation week to go home. Everything we had was delicious. The food was good. The servings were generous! Would definitely recommend for breakfast. It lunch and dinner are is good, I'm sure the recommendations would be the same.

A must try, chicken salad was my favorite but the caparse salad a very close second. Dinner is served on the patio, you so there is very small corkage fee. The flowers and the wooden deck is beautiful

The fries were fantastic. The two plates either were too large for the presentation or just not enough fries for an American Grille. The California burger, Ahi tuna, and crab cakes were well above average. The taste of the potato salad was fine, but I am not a fan of the bacon. Another enjoyed with the other not liking the...

Great breakfast. Cape May omelette was excellent. Reasonably priced. It was a little loud but it was probably because it was crowded.

We recently co-hosted our daughter's wedding rehearsal dinner here. The staff was accommodating and the food was, as always, fabulous! We always choose to sit outside on the deck, which has been enclosed somewhat so it's more sheltered from the street traffic and noise, and this worked out well for our group. I've read other reviews that complain about the... More

We stopped at Kudos for lunch and we were impressed. I had mushroom barley soup was excellent and the Rubin was perfect. The chicken salad and tuna melts were also very good. Priced right for lunch in Avalon.

We are repeat customers of Kudos and are never disappointed. We recently ate dinner there on May 27 and 29, 2016. Food was better than ever. We ate outside on the porch under beautiful lighting and music. Hubby had their homemade vegetable soup and he said it was the best he ever had. I tasted it and agree. Soup was... More
