We went here on a bar crawl and the drinks were goofy and good, and the vibe was friendly and easy. Didn't eat much, but were welcomed at a booth. Fun place. The signature Avalon Buffalo Milk cocktail is good here!

We had 8 people for a quick bite. The menu had good variety and the drinks were also good. The food was very good, delivered quickly, and well portioned. The straw hat that came with the cocktail was a fun conversation starter!

Had lunch with a bunch of friends. Great Bloody Mary and everyone enjoyed their lunch. Even got to watch some NFL Football.

We stoped in to say hello to my friend’s daughter in law who works here. Brie is a great waitress! This is the local party place so lots of folks getting or already a bit inebriated. Drinks are fine!

On the main road in Avalon with all the cute shops, this small Hawaiian themed bar with some booths and small tables is a great spot for a happy Hour drink, good selection drafts on tap and fun house drinks. We didn’t eat there but...More

1. The drink was $9 when I was there and comes with a hat. 2. It is served in a tall hurricane glass so about 12 oz. 3. I think 6 at the cave table. 4. Email Lisa. Trip Advisor does not allow me to post her email address.
