Birthday dinner for our daughter

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... read more

Tried Backstreet for the first time during our stay in cape may. It's off the beaten path but worth finding. The food was all freshly made to order. It was all very delicious. It is a small place with a homey atmosphere. The emphasis is on high quality delicious food. Would definitely return. The grilled asparagus with lump crab was... More

Sure, there's a little bit of braggadocio, but this restaurant's name is fitting. In our experience the food is simply delicious. Because Cape May is blessed with many really good restaurants, my wife and I visit Backstreet perhaps only twice each summer, but we are very satisfied each time and we vow that we will return more often. On our... More

My husband and I recently visited Backstreet Simply Delicious for the first time and were pleasantly surprised. It is a cafe atmosphere with excellent food and service. Everything we ordered was delicious from bread to dessert. My husband ordered the rack of lamb (which he orders often when we dine out) and said it was the best he's eaten. I... More

Every visit to Cape May, we make sure we dine with Chef T and Tony at Backstreets. We have never been disappointed. The atmosphere is laid back and friendly. The real treasure here is in the amazingly prepared food that with every bite delights the taste buds. I've actually had the privilege of attending several of their cooking classes which... More

Our food has been above average to very good during many visits over the last several years, but always, the detracting feature for us is the NOISE...many hard surfaces in this relatively small space left our small party, literally begging each other to repeat what they had just said. Overly loud guests at adjacent tables made it worse. Without a... More

Ordered an appetizer salad with roasted beets for $8.95 without the cheese. It came without the pecans as well and although they listed roasted beets and tomatoes, I had to search for them. They forgot to bring the dressing and basically served me a plain salad of lettuce with a few pieces of tomato and beets for almost $9. My... More

This place is off the main roads and the outside does it no justice. The food was delicious. We have the baked Brie app-amazing, crab-cakes and carbonara for our main course and them my husband enjoyed the house special peach cobbler and I had the key lime pie. That pie was my favorite thing I ate my whole trip!! Definitely... More

It's been awhile since I've been to Backstreet, but after my last meal, my family and I will make sure that we return more often. After loading up on some wine to bring to dinner, we started out with the warm goat cheese salad, caramelized brussel sprouts, and cajun scallops appetizers. These were by far the star of the meal...
