Went to dinner here last weekend. Entire staff was friendly. Place was packed but they were able to seat us quickly with our child. Good was great but in my opinion overpriced. I understand it's typical of Avalon though.

Went here with my family for dinner. We were quickly sat at a comfortable table. Atmosphere is a little loud but perfect if you have kids. Their menu has a great selection of food. I got the Filet with Crab MR and it was cooked perfectly. The steak could of been cut with a butter knife it was so tender.... More

Have been several times and experiences have been mixed. Steaks are pricey; ribs are great. Worst experience was 1 1/2 hour wait, standing. Year round which is rare in Avalon.

Went there last night in a party of five, one being a ten year old child. Never saw a place where you go to the kitchen window and place your order with the cook directly. This window is crammed into the front corner right next to where you make your own salad. This same window is where prepared plates are... More

Unfortunately, my husband and I went here at the advice of two separate friends. We were disappointed. The ordering process is weird and in a small space. The salad bar is tiny, but was the best part of the meal. My salmon was fishy. That just screams " not fresh" to me. My husband had scallops and they were great.... More

Have eaten here many times because friends love it. I have tried to keep an open mind each time I go. Last night was one of the worst experiences so I felt compelled to write a review. I went there with my teenaged daughter, so only 2 of us. Now I know the drill, they give you a slip, you... More

Went (for our very last time) with some other couples. Besides being overpriced (don't mind paying if good), food was not good. Pork chops were very tough 'like shoe leather' as the one friend said. Two of our friends didn't think the steaks were 6 oz as stated but smaller; flounder was very fishy; side dishes were cold; asparagus had... More

Visiting a friend at the shore, during the week before Easter, we were limited to what was open. The atmosphere seemed promising but you have to walk up to a chalk board and choose your dinner, then tell the chef. The waitress merely took our drink orders and brought us bread. We helped ourselves to the salad bar. I cannot... More

Stopped in for dinner in the off season so we were thrilled they were open. Not much is on Avalon in the off season and some things are hidden if you are not familiar with the area. My food was very good but the service style was distracting and not fitting with the price of the food. A server comes... More

During my business travels, I have great opportunity to experience many restaurants. Also, I am more than willing to pay a decent price for quality food. But the Sea Grill in Avalon is charging Manhattan prices for a below average eating experience. Also, the service at the "walk up" order window can be improved. Instead of graciously taking your order,... More
