Ask for Charles, he makes the best lemon drops. Great ambiance, good happy hour menu. We ended up making a couple stops and came back because we liked it so much.

Six of us went for dinner and everyone's dinner came out hot and cooked exactly as they asked. Hubby had the pork chop, some had huge hamburgers and I had Hanger Steak. All very good. Service was excellent too.

This restaurant was recommended by our tour guide and several others. It is a bit more formal and pricey than many other places in Avalon. Great seafood and munchies, though. Very nice bar here.

Ordered from our hotel. They forgot our veggies. And embarrassed our server by instisting they had already delivered. Our hotel server checked and refunded us for their mistake. Other than that food was great.

like others before me, ask the restaurant - most restaurants do, with varying corkage costs.
