This is nice little pub with very friendly people that provide excellent service. I had a very good sandwich with a great local craft beer. I like the older part of Avila still has some rustic charm that I remember back in the 70's.

I've never eaten here. I've just drink their beer. I stop in after renting a paddle board next door at the paddle sports place. Port Harford is small and cozy and nothing fancy - except for some of their local brews on tap. Beer is served in mason jars and quite chilly in temperature. Nice wines too (not that I... More

We popped into the place for a hot drink. I had a chai tea, which was half spicy and half vanilla, and it was perfect! My husband had some great fresh coffee. The pub looked so welcoming too, and has a view of the ocean. It looked like a nice place to have a couple of pints...maybe next time!

We found the Port Harford by chance, as we ventured over to the port pier from town for the first time in a few visits. Since the total Avila makeover we sort of forget to make the trip over to the "old" pier. Anyway, we were pleasantly surprised by the fast, courteous, friendly service and great sandwiches. Portions are very... More

We stopped here for a lunch of Reuben sandwiches and found a great coffee shop. We found the Reubens to be large and the coffee excellent! The view of the harbour was great too.

Portside sells Illy Coffee & tasty am treats, while the Pub serves various local craft beers(Fig Mtn.,Barrelhouse,Cider,etc) on tap in ice cold mason jars. They also serve wine(glass & bottle),mimosas,&bloody marys. The same food served at Portside(same owners), is served in the Pub. Burgers,pulled... More

We have been living on the Central Coast for over 25 years. However, this was our first time visit to this particular deli. We enjoyed their Reuben corn beef sandwich for lunch. It was a huge sandwich and enough food for two. The generous portion of corned beef was stacked high. The corned beef, sauerkraut and cheese on toasted rye... More

Fabulous homemade food (burgers, sandwiches, a few breakfast items $ specials). Family run, mom took our order, daughter was the chef & they go out of their way to make the food how YOU want it!! Order food & enjoy it in the bar while you sip on a cocktail, wine or craft beer all the while you are enjoying... More
