We love the Avon Pavillion. The kids that work there are super nice. The food is pricey since they redid it after Sandy Storm but worth it. We always share something and it is a BYOB which helps with the costs. It's great for lunch when you are on the beach and want to treat yourself to sitting outside on... More

The board walk is new and level making walking, running, and biking easy. All ages are welcome to enjoy the sights without getting exhausted and a wonderful view as well

I have been here for breakfast and lunch and both meals were excellent. Everyone was pleasant, helpful and willing to spend time with you explaining what they had to offer. There isn't a bad seat in the place. You get a beautiful ocean view but certainly not a boardwalk type of menu. The Ahi Tuna was delicious. The general manager... More

Last time we were here was in September 2014 and it didn't disappoint this time round. If you're in Avon it's well worth a visit and it won't break the bank.

An annual tradition for my close friends is to have breakfast at the Avon Pavilion on the first day of school to celebrate that we are all retired and get to enjoy the morning at the Jersey Shore. Our breakfasts this morning made an overcast day bright and sunny! Two of us ordered the St. Thomas French Toast, which was... More

Work colleagues and I are visiting NJ on business - one a first timer - , so we were looking for someplace to relax before our site visit. Searching Trip Advisor for seafood restaurants on the ocean....several restaurants appears on the list.

We ordered several appetizers instead of dinner. Everything was delicious. Our waitress was terrific. It's great to bring your own bottle of wine... The view is gorgeous. It's interesting to watch people walk by and enjoy the ocean views at the same time. Lovely Evening.

We were enjoying the beautiful beach at Avon and decided to have lunch at the Avon Pavilion. Since super storm Sandy, the restaurant has been renovated beautifully. Crisp white walls with turquoise accents and large windows make the space so inviting. I enjoyed a delicious BLT sandwich with bacon well done. My friend had the grilled cheese with tomato. Both...

The food is delicious and well-priced. Nice seating for people-watching and looking out at the beach. They have a young staff who are always busy keeping up with the turnover of customers. Highly recommend.
