We have lived in the area for close to forty years and had heard a lot about Backstreet Café, particularly this past year. We went on the last day of this season. A nice BYOB, the ranking here on Trip Advisor seems about right (top third of restaurants in Cape May). I had veal picatta, my wife had fish. The... More

We have been to Backstreet on several occasions, it is one of our favorite places. We love that it is a BYOB, and the food is wonderful, service very good. We had the corn and crab chowder, which was a winner, the lobster mac and cheese also very good. The appetizer of grilled asparagus with lump crabmeat was also good... More

The grouper in toasted coconut, drizzled with sweet coconut cream was superb, a real winner, but the mashed potatoes that came with it could have been a lot more interesting. The roasted veggies that came with our dinners were, on the other hand, flavorful and nicely seasoned - I ate them all, and that's unusual for me. My partner had... More

Went there this summer and the food was really delicious and the portions were generous. I felt very comfortable there and the peach cobbler was fantastic. I liked the place and I'll definitely go there again next time I'm in Cape May. Thumbs up for the restaurant !

We were a group of 7, and across the board it was a thumbs down. Commenting on my own dinner...crab and corn chowder...white paste with about 7 kernels of corn in the bowl (corn is cheap!), and gave up looking for the crab. The shrimp scampi with rice was drowning in way-over garliced sauce which had obliterated any lemon, and... More

Went here last week and the food was medium to lower quality diner food. You read their claim to have a chef who appears like a good chef but all our dinners were over priced and not really good. I observed other peoples dinner plates and they did not look good. I'm surprised and disappointed but had to give an... More

In an unassuming location, but a reasonable walk from the Cape May beach. Food was delicious, with delightful combinations of flavors, and generously portioned. Extensive selection of specials, largely seafood. Largely local crowd who seemed very comfortable.

This restaurant is, in a single word, a gem! Chef Tee has a great regular menu, but the daily specials is where her creativity really shines. Check the chalkboard, because that's where it's at. The service is attentive without being annoying. The restaurant is BYOB without a corking fee. Don't miss the made to order cobblers for dessert.
