We walked in our first night. Great food. Great bourbon list. Hopefully the owner can get more staff. We would have eaten there several times but he was short on staff.

We came here while on vacation and really enjoyed the atmosphere and food. We would have preferred sitting outside, but that was full. Inside was just fine. We had great service from Celestial. We had the Scotch egg - good but sauce wasn't what I...expected, Grilled Caesar - great and Fresh Catch - great. The beer selection was good for a smaller place like this and we enjoyed it. Recommend to others and would return.More

Food was delicious and the service was great! We wished it was open everyday so we could have ate there more! Upscale fresh food for a reasonable price!!

Stumbled upon this off-the-beaten-path gem by chance while on vacation. Staff were knowledgeable and well coordinated. We didn't have a reservation but were accommodated on the spot. Drinks were inventive and delicious- there's something on this craft drink menu for everyone! As for the food-...delicious and visually pleasing- I highly recommend the twisted BLT&A and scotch egg. The Reuben was the best I've ever had (house made corned beef, Havarti cheese instead of swiss)- if you're generally a fan of Reubens you will not be disappointed!More

We showed up one night without a reservation. They were very accommodating and seated us quickly. Both my husband and I had the special of the night which was a lamb pie. It was fantastic, the lamb so tasty and the pastry definitely handmade. I...had the special dessert which was a blueberry crisp. Again, very tasty!More

Excellent spot. We both had the brisket sandwich and it was delicious! I had a side salad and my husband had fries and they were both great too. The staff was very friendly and hard working.

My wife and I called ahead to make a reservation for 2. Extensive cocktail list. Old fashioned made with one large cube. This is always a benchmark for me that indicates if the drink will be any good. Means they take pride in their craft....We stayed for dinner and several drinks. One bartender on staff, took a bit to get the drinks in our hands, but the establishment was full and the drinks are worth the wait. Will definitely return.More

Dined here on a Thursday evening of a one week stay. So glad we could get a reservation. Tremendous staff who demonstrated teamwork not always evident elsewhere. Celestial provided superb service. Food was wonderful. It was one of the two most memorable meals of our...week.More

My husband and I often go to Avalon to enjoy either just a "too lazy or tired to cook" meal or, for special occasions. We keep coming back because the food is fantastic and you can pair it with the most unique top shelf cocktails...you'll find on the island. The decor is modern, hope, but has a cozy local touch to it. The people of Avalon are always kind and recognize you as they welcome you back with a smile. A huge bonus for me is that they accommodate my vegetarianism without any issue whatsoever. Their appetizers are also very unique and have inspired my own home cooking. It's a huge relief that they made it through the trying times of COVID era and I hope they will remainMore

From the minute we walked in, Avalon Gastropub had great energy! The food & drinks were so good, we came 4 days in a row. Everything on the menu is excellent. This place should be on Kauai’s Top 10 Must Visit list.

First night in Kauai we stopped by Avalon gastro pub After 1course we made reservations for the next 3 nights. Started with fried macaroni cheese - delicious and different . Then divine smoked mahi mahi and asparagus for me and delicious teriyaki sauced flank steak...for my partner. Sticky toffee pudding for dessert: scrumptious. Second night seared duck with polenta for me , excellent local fish and chips for partner . Bread pudding regular or fried excellent. Tomorrow probably lamb chops after scotch egg . Can’t wait, Cocktails amazing too!! Owner very friendly !! Absolute must if you are in the area or on Kauai!!More

We shared small plates. I loved the scotch eggs, my husband really loved the poutine and we both liked the twisted BLT&A. Smoked Manhattan and Jalapeno Smoked Margarita were delicious. Also tried the whiskey Mai Tai and Lilikoi Margarita. These were tasty but not as...good as the smoked drinks. Atmosphere was good, reservations a must. If you like smoked drinks and food, I highly recommend.More

We had a great dinner at Avalon. Sure, we had to adhere to COVID protocols, but that didn't take away from the food or the cool décor. We both enjoyed our meal, and the servers were very friendly.

One of the best all-around dining experiences we've ever had, in any city, anywhere! So good that we went two nights in a row. The urban aesthetic is quite well-designed and inviting. The staff were all welcoming and attentive (and they really hustle!). Creative and...reasonably priced cocktail menu, and the food is perfectly prepared and presented, and, most importantly, really tasty! Had the hanger steak with fries and the grilled Caesar salad one night , and the brisket sandwich with fries and brussels sprouts the second night. Everything was so good. This is a don't miss experience. You might even want to come back for more!More

This was out first time, and definitely won't be our last. It's a small venue with very limited seating. That may be part of the charm. The owners are there working hard, and that's always a good sign. We started with the grilled pickles and...they were a clue to how good this place is. Light breading and homemade ranch dressing made them the best I've ever had. My main course was their grilled Caesar salad topped with grilled Ono. This was absolutely bursting with flavor and was a surprisingly generous portion. This place is a winner... check them out!More
