Our family dined here for my birthday. We had a great table near the window toward the beach. The food was good with a nice presentation. The building is modern yet has a feel of old Bahama plantation style. I would highly recommend lunch, dinner, or drinks around the bar.

Catalina doesn't have a lot of great food to offer. Once we discovered Avalon Grill it became our go to. Everything we had was great from the apps to the iced tea. Stop here!

We had lunch and dinner here, and thought it deserved its high marks on tripadvisor. Both seafood and steaks were good quality ingredients and well prepared. We ate outside, which provided good people watching, and a pleasant atmosphere. Service is Avalon college girl style, but not bad within that standard. We struggled to find a bottle of wine worth ordering at dinner, but again, on Catalina, that is no surprise.

The food is well, however, is very expensive. My friend and I went to for early dinner, and there are a lot of flies. With this pice of food, they need to take care do the flies.
