The restaurant name says it all. It is Simply Delicious! The crab cakes were outstanding. My husband had salmon,which was great too. The kids had grilled chicken and mashed potatoes, and they nearly licked the plate clean.

Amazing food! Everything was simple and delicious. It's a quiet place off the beaten path near cape May fitness. It's the best meal we had on our trip ! Staff was friendly and chef was great, she came out to talk with us at end of meal...they deserve the business!

We are back in Cape May for the summer and went to Backstreet for dinner. I wrote a review last year saying this place is "awesome." Well, it's still "awesome." The pan fried tomatoes are excellent !!! So is the grouper. And, their breakfast is phenomenal. I always get the crab & asparagus omelet. Best kept secret in Cape May... More

A great, LITTLE find! An excellent BYOB away from the crowds. We enjoyed a relaxed stroll from Beach & Broadway. The food was good. Fresh and basic... nothing hidden under layers of sauce. We will definitely be back.

My wife and I just left Backstreet and we had a wonderful meal. We both had the spinach salad with Gorgonzola cheese, candied walnuts, dried cranberries and a warm mustard drizzle that was wonderful. We then moved on to entrees with my wife having a nice pasta carbonara while I went for the crab cakes. I'm going to make a... More

My wife and I had dinner at Backstreet last night and I must say I enjoyed the best piece of flounder that I've ever had in my life. It was topped with lumps of crabmeat and sat over a bed of rice. The fish and crab were fresh and were cooked to perfection. The interior isn't fancy and it is... More

Wife and I went for dinner. Wife had excellent crab cakes and I had an excellent cheddar crusted grouper. Mixed vegetables were kind of week and mashed potatoes tasted like they came from the box. Also caesar salad, while decent, showed a lot of brown on the lettuce. Excellent server who provided a quart of water to start, which went... More

This place is one of the best restaurant finds in Cape May. We ate there twice and my only complaint is that I didn't get to try everything. I am a seafood fan and they have a great variety. The crabcakes are superior and the scallops were luscious. The dessert list is also impressive. The services is excellent and the... More

We went here early on Sunday night to celebrate our daughter's birthday. It was quiet and music was playing. They give you a quart of ice water for the table which we appreciate. My husband and daughter had the salmon and both sang its praises. I opted for the lamb chops which our so good they melt in your mouth.... More
