Truly a family restaurant with a large selection of affordable specials. This BYOB does not cost a lot but they give a lot of hospitality

We visit Bedrock as often as we can as the service is superb, the selection exciting and can be counted on for diversity and is served with a flair

Nothing special about this tired looking very average restaurant. My Talapia stuffed with crabmeat was a thin slice of fish wrapped around a mushy breadcrumb filling- I don't think there was any crabmeat in it but who knows as the whole thing was drowned in tasteless sauce. Don't be fooled by the good reviews or you will be as disappointed... More

My wife were searching for somewhere to eat in Avon By The Sea... and came across the Bedrock Cafe. What a find! The food was delicious and an excellent value. I had 2 lobster tails stuffed with Crabmeat- $30 bucks!. My wife had grilled shrimp caesar salad- $9.99! Next time we are in town- we will definitely stop by again!... More

Bedrock is one od my favorite places to eat. Food is very good, as is the service. Specials during the week are very appealing. Mark, the owner, always greets his customers and asks if everything is all right. Great lunch specials. Terrific salads.

I'd like to start this review by asking "how can a restaurant make a bad pizza?" Well, many restaurants CAN make BAD pizza and, even though Bedrock is not a pizza parlor, their food is good and I highly recommend them. Good service, good food, good overall. They are ALWAYS busy and that is because they serve good food. Inexpensive... More

Now called Bedrock Bistro, have been coming to the old location and this one as well for years. The menu is extensive, lots of seafood as well as other delicious options, plenty of appetizers and lighter options. They also have some terrific dinner specials during the week. The prices are very reasonable for the quality of the food, and the... More

I went on Mothers Day for the first time which was probably not a good idea. The menu was not their regular one and so it was limited and a little more pricey. However, the soft shell crabs I ordered were very good. I will probably go back again to try it.

Not sure why this so on TripAdvisor, but they are showing the old name and address for this restaurant, with old photos that do not at all represent the present dining decor. It is the Bedrock Bistro and moved to 300 Main St., Avon-by-the-Sea years ago. Some the recent reviews indicate the correct name. Full disclosure: my wife and I... More
