So glad we gave the fresh homemade donuts a try our first morning at Avon. My daughter loved them enough that we had to order them almost daily during our week's stay. The service was friendly. Obviously, these are popular and they can get busy...More

Ketch 55 was the best restaurant we ate at in our week in Avon. We both had local seafood that was absolutely delicious. I had some special requests which they filled with no problem. The beer and wine selection was good. A great dining experience!

Had the calamari and the spinach salad with warm goat cheese. Highly recommend each dish. Have a very good menu with a selection of grilled seafood which can be hard to find in this area. Also offer vegetables other than French fries.
