Sorry it is currently not in operation and the future plans are unsure. I hope it returns. The cold beer and live music were an excellent pairing.

Bummer, it was deemed unsafe and has been torn down. By the looks of things, they might be rebuilding.

Wew went back again this year but it was closed. We will go back when it re opens, I hope soon. It's fun to sit out and have a beer and see the boats crashing in to the dock to get fuel.

This place is a good place to have lunch while watching the boats in the harbor and gazing up at the Casino building. Gourmet it is not but great for hamburgers and an adult beverage away from the center of Avalon.

The performer truly embarassed us as we left. He wanted a tip. We were there for 15 minutes and 1 beer that I got myself. Sad way to make a living😞
