Old school breakfast shop on the boardwalk in Avalon. We have eaten breakfast here dozens of times though never have arrived by car! We either are out for an early morning walk or bike ride. The key is to be early because it fills up...More

Maybe it's the tempered grill , the location or the wonderful service, but this is a "must do" for breakfast when in Avalon. The products are first rate and the service efficient. The prices aren't bad either. Stop by .

Great location right on the board walk. Take a walk on the board walk and end up at the south end fishing pier grill. Order the omelet and get ready for a great meal.

The omelets were very good. The staff was very friendly. Our meal came out quickly, which we appreciated because we had hungry kids with us.

The fishing pier's omelets are the best n town! Almost ever conceivable filling. Great service and the people who work their couldn't be nicer. And the other FIshing Pier Grill in Stone Harbor is equally great.

This is an interesting little shack that serves good food and has polite servers. Definitely an unusual place but a must visit if you are in Avalon. The food is good, the experience is great!

Small and cramped but a fun little spot for a great breakfast on the boards. No matter what you might want--they have it. Fast friendly service and prices are decent. Can get a bit warm in there but don't let that deter a visit. It's...More

An Avalon classic. Very small with a wait on most days, but the tables seem to turn over very quickly. Twice as good as any other option for breakfast in Avalon.

I've been going to the fishing pier for as long as I can remember. Their breakfast is amazing! They use fresh fruit and always have great specials. It can be a long wait...but it's worth it. There's a playground right down the boardwalk which is...More

Yes Cash Only... But they have an ATM right next to the register. Great choice for an island breakfast. Try the Salmon omelet. One of our favorites.

Rick and Sue's adventure on 7 Mile Island began 27 years ago when they took over the Fishin' Pier Grille located on 32nd Street in Avalon. The husband and wife duo's love affair with restaurants still runs strong after all these years as they continuously enjoy seeing the familiar faces of returning customers as well as the new comers each summer. Rick and Sue's grown children, Nicole Jones and Eric Montanari, are happily joining their parents in this new adventure of opening the Fishin' Pier Grille South in Stone Harbor this upcoming Spring. The family is looking forward to bringing the same reputation of great taste, service, and charm to their new breakfast spot.
