Chef owned BYOB with tasty innovative dishes obviously made with great care. Friendly service. Spare decor, bright lighting and noisy boisterous clientele that spoiled the experience for us old folks. So loud that we couldn't converse in our booth without shouting. Chef is talented. She deserves a better venue.

A little gem out of the mainstream of Cape May, delicious food, fresh & creative. Take your own wine and an excellent value. We love it.

We were looking for an out-of-the-way spot in Cape May with decent food, and we wound up with far more than we bargained for. While the official menu that they show online is a tad sparse, Backstreet more than makes up for it with a wide variety of extra options that they put up on the wall. We wound up... More

My family and I made a reservation here for Sunday night, it was a great decision to say the least! There was 6 of us and they had our table ready for us when we got in. The fresh hot bread is so good, we all got apps and the seafood was very fresh just as you would imagine being... More

Our family of 8 stayed in Cape May for a week and this was by far our favorite restaurant. Everyone raved about their meals! The staff was very attentive and the chef also came out to ask us about our food. The only thing we regret is finding this restaurant at the end of our week, otherwise we would have... More

Enjoyed our meal and the dining experience; particularly happy with the two seafood dishes ordered - local catch was delicious and prepared perfectly; my son's swordfish and crab was excellent as well. Deserves its strong reputation.

I have been going to Backstreet every summer for over 10 years for breakfast. I love the atmosphere and the food is absolutely delicious!! The homefries are the best in Cape May! Also the owners are so nice and friendly they really make you feel at home. The best part is how clean Backstreet is. I recommend breakfast and dinner... More

Unfortunately, when another reviewer on Tripadvisor mentioned they had hair in their water glass, among other issues, I assumed it was a fluke and decided to try this local establishment myself. I dined there this morning and ordered breakfast only to end up chewing on a dirty old paperclip mixed in with my homefries. It was so gross that I... More

Dear xovenusxo... We are sorry to hear about your experience at our restaurant... and would also like the opportunity to comment on your review. First, we do not have paper clips in the restaurant. That doesn't necessarily mean that one couldn't have been in your home fries but we'd like to make that point at least. Second, we would have... More

Just had a fabulous meal at Backstreet. We wanted to try a new restaurant this year and are we glad we did! This restaurant deserves to be included with the best of Cape May.
