Restaurants that take reservations

Hello, I’m having a hard time finding any Restaurants that take reservations. Can anyone recommend restaurants in Avalon that they know take reservations? Thanks so much.

Our favorite restaurant, Bluewater Grill on the water does not take reservations. We either go early around 5 PM and get a table, or walk across the street from our hotel, and put our name down and then check back.

Only when we’ve gone with our golf group and had a party over 12 do places take our reservations.

Have you been to Catalina before? You might not be grasping how tiny the place is. The “core” of Avalon is about 2 by 4 blocks and tiny ones at that. It is a very backwater, low-key place and that’s people like about the place.

I checked Avalon Grille and Steve's Steakhouse and neither one of them are taking reservations, Antonio's Pizzeria on the water also does not though we've usually been able to just walk in. We have not been over to Catalina since before March 2020.

I’m not sure any of the restaurants take reservations. There’s only maybe 3 “nicer” restaurants that I can think of. Bluewater Grill (local chain) I know does not, there’s Steve’s Steakhouse and Avalon Grill ~ you might call them, especially with Covid, maybe they will take a reservation.
