Our first time in Avalon and we had a wonderful meal at the Diving Horse. The restaurant is decorated very nicely and I loved the pictures of the horses! Fun! The food was absolutely delicious. Our party of four were all extremely happy with their meals. And we never get dessert usually, but we couldn't resist here. We will definitely go back!!!!

We've been to the Diving Horse before but this time our meals were exceptional. My soft shell crab main course was the best I've ever experienced. Perfectly seasoned, cleaned on a bed of roasted veggies, just perfect. The wedge salad was also wonderful. My spouse had the halibut which was also a delight. I hope they can hold up to the crowds during the busy season and turn out the same type of delightful experience. We'll be going back many times this summer. Thank you Diving Horse!

We love this place. It's a BYO. The menu is always different The service is great. They have outside seating, and the indoor seating is open and airy. We try to go back at least once each year.

We were lucky to dine at the Diving Horse on their last night of operation for the 2012 season. The food was great, especially the silver queen corn soup finished with lobster followed by scallops and short ribs which fell off the bone. The owner was working several tables and saying goodbye to his seasonal patrons which was a really nice touch. We have a wonderful home for next year and decided the only night we would eat out would be for the Diving Horse.
