Avon Pavilion Restaurant Review

: Avon Pavilion at breakfast and lunch is not the same Avon Pavilion at dinner. But no matter when you dine, you’ll enjoy the sound of the sea just a few hundred yards away. The place was once just a “summer shack” where you could buy take away food like hot dogs with kraut and cheese fries, and you still can. However, thanks to some clever renovations, come night, when no wet bathing suits are allowed in the dining room, and with the help of moonlight and candle light, you can enjoy fare such as succulent baby-back ribs, slow cooked while basted in Pavilion's signature barbecue sauce. Ribs are served with a crunchy jícama slaw and honey cornbread. There are some surprising choices such as spicy Mongolian hot pot lush with shrimp, lobster, calamari, mussels, clams and cellophane rice noodles, all awash in a green curry coconut broth. Service staff is friendly, the vibe is relaxed. Many diners take their dessert at the Pavilion's old-fashioned ice cream parlor, perhaps a triple decker cone to be enjoyed while strolling along the boardwalk.
