    Very limited menu, but entrees were expensive. Salad was good. Fries were very greasy. Much more of a hole in the wall feel than they boast.

    The food was delicious two of us had the crabcakes for dinner they were outstanding!! The salmon was lump crab meat and double sided vegetables was delicious and the prime rib was also delicious. Appetizers were over the chart. However we booked a late reservation so that we can be there for the band not knowing that it was going to turn into a nightclub it was very loud and extremely crowded with everybody bumping into each other and a much younger crowd

    Our party of 8 usually dines here once or twice during our two week stay in July, annually. Generally, it's "ok" but I'm not sure we will return next year. The food is pretty average, service is hit or miss, but they are in the center of town (walkable), they take reservations via OpenTable, and they're open late - three important qualities. Last night's experience was probably our worst to date. The restaurant was really loud and chaotic and the service was really bad. Our waiter was almost comically disengaged, he offered zero drink refills (never even asked), and our appetizers were delivered haphazardly by runners at different times - including a soup and two salads forgotten completely. When spending hundreds of dollars, at bare minimum, it should at least be a pleasant experience.

    The nice thing was that we were seated on time --unlike so many other restaurants these days. We were seated by the bar which was fine because we enjoyed the live music. The food was good but nothing gourmet. The server was pleasant but service was slow. We realize that is to be expected with the shortage of help. Overall a good experience. We will return.

    Hard to converse and we were only a table of 4. Entertainment was pleasant but so loud and nonstop that it impacted the experience in a negative way. Will probably only return for outside dining where music is muted.

    We have been dining at the Chair for years and it’s a favorite! The food is always delicious, the service is attentive, and we are always welcomed warmly like family. We especially love eating on the upstairs patio. Last night’s favorites were Cape May Salts oysters, prime rib, and pear martinis.

    The restaurant was only about half full, but we still waited twenty five minutes for drinks, and forty minutes for our food. The appetizer prices are very high. The food was okay, but overpriced for what we got.

    Bobby Dee’s is a great spot for lunch or dinner. We loved the vibe, food and especially the drinks. We were lucky enough to be their for some live music. The staff was super friendly and attentive. The menu had a great assortment and the quality of food was really good. We can’t wait to go back the next time we visit this fun beach town, Avalon.

    Avoid this tourist trap. A $17 burger is served with potato chips at dinner time and there’s a $3 up charge for fries —-which are normally served with a burger. I ordered a Margarita pizza that came out with a sheet of cheese, no tomato sauce, and underripe tomato slices—-weirdest pizza I’ve ever seen. I ended up ordering French fries because I just wanted something to eat since it had been an hour since we’d sat down. Our waitress did the best she could but this place shouldn’t open if the kitchen is not sufficiently trained or staffed. The totally subpar overpriced food took 45 minutes to arrive.

    My friend and I went to the Rock 'n Chair because it wa close to our rental property and we wanted to try their prix-fixe dinners. We loved them so much we went three times during our two week vacation! For $23, you get a choice of soup or salad, an entree (all 3 that I tried were delicious and they did not skimp on the portions), a dessert, and a complimentary drink. While the menu was limited and no substitutions were allowed, I thought the deal was well worth the price. The service couldn't have been better. Just by luck, we had the same waitress, Kylie, each night. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. And the rest of the staff-the hostesses, the food runners, the bussers, were just as nice and mannerly. My friend and I also stopped in one night for munchies and a glass of wine. We were pleased with those as well. I'll go back the next time I'm in Avalon and would definitely recommend the Rock 'n Chair.

    Great bar scene. Friendly staff and great beverage selection. The food was excellent. Had the Prime Rib, others had seafood selections. Portion sizes were appropriate, no need for take-home from too big entrees, no need for desert because we were full! We will be back.

    I chose the rocking chair because we were having people over and I wasn't sure if they wanted to eat a full meal; a snack; or a burger. That being said, it seems that the reviews were more positive for the dinner entrees than the sandwiches. Those who had the scallops and the salmon thought they were very good; however, the accompaniments - rice and mixed veggies - rather bland. Others had the crabcake sandwich, which were okay, but nothing to write home about. Same can be said for a wrap sandwich (fish or chicken) with an order of sweet potato fries which cost extra but were not worth it. As for the service, it was okay but not great - one of our meals was left off our order(?) per the waitress and it took a while to receive that meal.
