Many varied breakfast selections draw me to this place when I travel the area. Updated menu since I was last there. Always something of interest. Lunch and dinner items also good. Close to Great America.

If you are going to go to the Avalon please look carefully at your food before eating. My family stopped by this past Sunday morning for breakfast. We had never been to the Avalon before, but it looked busy and we usually like the "mom and pop" kind of places over the chains for breakfast. The restaurant was pretty full,... More

Great family restaurant, very friendly staff - and the portions were HUGE! I was able to split a breakfast with someone with food left over, and everything was well prepared.

I love their pecan pancakes. Lots of pecans so they really fill you up and you feel like you are eating something nutritious. Before I stopped eating animals, I used to get the biscuits and gravy which has the best gravy I've ever tasted. My husband gets the country fried steak and loves it. We only come here for breakfast... More

Plenty of room here and fast service. The food is slightly above average but very generous portions. The breakfasts are especially good and it's a family friendly place.

The selection, there's a wide variety, taste well if you have no taste buds. I've tried several things and the last time I had the steak I asked do they season, responce, no the owner... More

My family had dinner there on 4/26/15. I was very surprised to see how empty it was when we walked in, but it was next to road construction that was recently completed. We've been there several times before, the food prices are reasonable. This time the kitchen messed up and forgot one of our dinners. By the time the last... More
