Good food not great. Busy restaurant. Strong margaritas. Reasonably priced. Was there over the 4th of July a particularly crazy time to visit Avalon.

We sat down at a two top table with plenty of room on the bench for two and we were told they couldn't accommodate three people. The waitress was nasty, didn't even say enjoy our inside seating. Sad
