“Excellent unbeatable hot dogs”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

I have been going to this place for 28 years and to this day I have never found a hot dog that could beat theres. The location is great right on the pier and is really relaxing. There buffalo burgers are excellent as well. This place is always the first stop that I make after getting off the boat. If you like hot dogs you will like this place and continue to go back.

“Kick Back and People Watch and Have a Great Meal”
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”
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.
