Motorboat Club


Fine Dining in Avalon NJ

The Avalon Yacht and Motor Club was originally built in 1913 and was located at 19th Street and the bay. In 2002, Anthony Zurawski, owner of the Whitebrier and previously of the Princeton, moved the building to its current location on 21st Street and expanded upon it to create the Motorboat Club Restaurant at the Whitebrier

The Motorboat Club Restaurant features a stellar list of 20 craft beers on tap and serves traditional American and seafood dishes with a modern flare. Reservations are accepted and recommended for parties of 6 or more. We have the space to accommodate several large parties per night and are a family friendly dining establishment (although Saturdays can get a little noisy). The Motorboat Club has both indoor and outdoor seating available as well as the full sushi menu.
