My husband and I stopped here for a quick bite on our first beach day. The ambience is awesome. The bartender, not so much. No personality and it seemed as if we were bothering him. We even had to ask if they were open. His...More

Nice spot to enjoy a brew or cocktail along with some tasty snacks. We tried the fish tacos and they hit the spot.

Best Happy Hour in Avalon especially on Sundays. The location on the sand with the reggae band on Sunday gives it 3 stars. The new owners have fixed it up, but I do miss the old prices. Also, I ordered 2 drinks from one bar,...More

We ate lunch here on the beach day, since it was very convenient. We left our beach chairs and just walked to eat here. They have showers to clean sand off of your foot. The ambience was really good. Sand on the floor, nice wooden...More
