The reastaurant is on the boardwalk, and although you can see the ocean, it is seen after the lamp posts, boardwalk, fences, and the beach. What I am trying to say is that the view is pretty good, but not great. Food was very good...with some interesting salads and mains. Dinner for 3 was $94.More

The Avon pavilion is a cute breakfast spot on the Jersey shore beach. Good views of the beach. The coffee was good too. I got the Mariners skillet With fresh shrimp, blue crab meat, Spinach, tomatoes, eggs, and mornay sauce. The shrimp was good and...fresh. I don’t think I would’ve ordered this dish again though. Definitely would try something else. A fan favorite is the açaí bowl.More

Not only was the view and food amazing but the staff was so attentive. Kevin and Ryan were the most attentive wait staff I have ever encountered. Considering it was the end of a tough CoVid summer, where frustration was high, they made us feel...so important! Thank you for a 2020 Summer Highlight -Avon Pavilion! Priscilla and BobMore

My friends and I have eaten at the Avon Pavilion four times this season. Every time the food was delicious. The staff is very attentive and courteous. Marlana was very cheerful and personable. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit..

The only thing this restaurant has for it is its location on the boardwalk. The food is mediocre at best. None of the pasta dishes had any salt. The "San Tropez" shrimp were saturated with garlic (and this isn't how you spell Saint-Tropez). The plain...pasta arrived with an inedible acidic tomato sauce on top. The crab cakes are much more cake than crab. Yet most of the mains cost around $30. It's a typical example of a subpar restaurant that pretends to serve gourmet food and fails miserably. To make things even worse, it's BYOB. We would have had a much better meal at a diner.More

I look forward to eating here every year, being local we are always sad when they close because we know the sholder season at the Jersey Shore is special. Had breakfast here with Mariana as our server to start the weekend. Perfect service, perfect view,...perfect food. So sad they are closing early this year.More

The food was great, our Server Marlana was excellent, and what better way than to start your day with breakfast by the beach on a beautiful day!

We decided to eat out at the Avon Restaurant. Our server recommended us to try the salad with the watermelon and we loved it. Justin is an excellent waiter as he was super helpful. The staff was very kind and professional. We will be back...soon!More

Food and ocean views are great. Nova Scotia omelette was tasty. Marlana was awesome and very attentive to my needs. It’s hard to leave actually.
