Eating in/around Avalon NJ?

I'm sharing a place in Avalon NJ in a week. Recommendations on places? Doesn't need to be fancy, but if there is someplace you love or that is not to be missed, let me know.

    If you care to venture offshore, see if you can get reservations at Karen and Reis. It's outstanding.

      For a light lunch on a summer day, try the vegetarian and near-vegetarian offerings of Green Cuisine one town south in Stone Harbor. Good hummus, interesting sandwiches and salads.

      And to make up for the wholesome goodness, top it off with a scoop or two from Springer's Homemade Ice Cream, also Stone Harbor.

        i haven't been blown away by any avalon / stone harbor eateries, but these are good:
        breakfast- brian's waffle house
        dinner- via mare, sea grill

          We like 2 Italian restaurants in Sea Isle, next to Avalon.Basilica's on 43rd just above Landis and La Fontana's in Strathmere. The spelling may be off.

            Cafe Lauren has a nice laid back and quaint atmosphere
            Food is not spectacular but is very good and well presented
            Bring a good bottle of wine and you will enjoy yourself.

            Avalon @ 18th street?

            Second the vote for Karen and Reis

            If you can travel and have deep pockets, Try Savaradio in
            Linwood - you must have one of their desserts.

            Good luck
