“Kick Back and People Watch and Have a Great Meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

Eric's is a landmark in Avalon. You can't miss the green exterior and the lines painted on the pier. Saddle up to a bar stool that faces the city or pier and enjoy some great food and drink while watching life go by. This isn't a place you want to hurry but a nice spot to journal, read a book or share conversation.

“Good clam chowder”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

We had the chowder in the bread bowls. It was really good, warm and filling. The service was good too. You had to eat at little tables outside but that is part of the Catalinia life.

“Best Fish Tacos!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

Great place to grab a fish taco and a beer for lunch on the pier. I've never been disappointed and it is by far the best fish taco you'll find Avalon.

“Enjoyable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

Just to sit on a pier, people watching couldn't get much better than sitting at Eric's. If you are lucky enough to snag one of the high tables you get to view the yachts, people and feel the ease of everyone enjoying their vacation. We stopped for a funnel cake and while it wasn't the best, it was ok. People around us seemed to be enjoying their food and drinks, we didn't hear complaints. What a great place for a quick bite before exploring the island. Don't forget to walk to the end of the pier to make this a great experience visiting Eric's.
