Steve's Steakhouse

Reviewed By RCesena - Woodbridge, California

My wife and I visited Catalina for anniversary in February 2018. We went hiking out to Lone Tree point during the day, and came back with a rather large appetite. We decided to have dinner at the steakhouse, since we burned so many calories during the day. The steak was very good, the service was very good, and there was a great view of Avalon and the harbor. It was an offseason weekend, and things were a little quieter than during the spring or summer, and the service was good.

The pastries looked to die for- we got there towards the end of the day, and everything looked absolutely fresh and ready to be eaten. Unfortunately, we had a big lunch and only stopped by for a quick caffeine trip.

The shop is in the middle of a plaza- a few tourist stores, an arcade, a bar, a spa, and inward from Coney West. I had a pre-made iced tea sweetened with their honey. They have a huge assortment of coffee you can pick and choose and play with.

The best part is, for a small fee ($1-$1.75) you can get refills on your tea and coffee all day long. Definitely not a bad deal, for some yummy freshly made caffeine.

Bluewater Avalon Seafood Restaurant

Reviewed By Mimi_cheryl

Our family wanted to grab a nice lunch in Avalon. Bluewater is perfect for families, for the view, for location and especially for the fresh seafood! We had the wonderful SandDabs . Yummy!
Seasonal fresh fish is delicately prepared and paired with fresh veggies.
The kids loved bed their cheeseburgers and have me made potato chips. Extensive menu for adults. Good bar offering. Very accommodating service.
Highly recommend this restaurant in Avalon!!

Lloyd's of Avalon Confectionary

Reviewed By Dmarkwind - Kansas City, Missouri

This is an old-fashioned sweet shop located in a prominent spot on Avalon’s bayfront pedestrian street. There’s a taffy-puller operating in the window most of the time, and they also have a selection of fudge, pastries, as well as other candy. We enjoyed ice cream cones here, and their scoops aren’t too skimpy. While this is to be expected, their image may be old-fashioned, their prices are pretty modern, but still a fun stop. Just based on a short December visit, this store seemed to be open when many others in the area were not.

Named after a famous sea lion that used to greet and delight Catalina visitors and residents, this is basically a food stand located in a small “mall” near the Atwater Hotel between Metropole and Summer avenues. They offer paninis and non-toasted custom sandwiches you can...MoreDear Dmarkwind, Thank you for joining us at Ben's Bakery. There is a bathroom located in the Arcade.

My Husband and I went for Wine Wednesday at the Bar. Charles was our excellent bartender. Charles was attentive, knowledgeable and very nice! I wanted to try some of the Rusack Wines that were produced on the Island but because of the limited production the prices were too high for us. We love the Rusack Winery as our favorite in Solvang area...This place is the classiest on the Island...we will return for the food and hopefully Charles again!

Scoops Catalina Island

Reviewed By JulieinCali - San Luis Obispo, California

This was a great place for a treat! I had gelato and my boyfriend had ice cream. Both were very good. The man scooping was very busy but he was friendly with a great attitude. We find the prices in Catalina to be pretty high, but the prices here were very reasonable!

Dryer's ice-cream on the boardwalk. Busy, local shop. Nothing out of the ordinary. Service was good. However, if you're looking for more of a specialty ice-cream, this may not be your place.

Reviewed By Rajan M - San Francisco, California

We ate here during a very warm Labor Day weekend - it was a perfect stop after the ferry ride from Long beach. Great food, cold drinks (try the beer flight), reasonably priced, and very conveniently located off the harbor. We had sushi and some appetizers - all were fresh, flavorful, and quickly prepared. This would also be an excellent place when waiting for the ferry back to LA.
