After a long hot day of biking through Rehobeth Beach, when we got back to Cape May we decided to try a drink and appetizers at on the rocks bar and Grill. The long island ice teas are very pricey at $10 each but pretty good. Our appetizers consisted of the Ahi tuna, and six Cape May salt oysters... read more

We both ordered burgers with chips (not fries though they were available). We sat watching the Ferry dock and load up which is quite impressive! Our food arrived hot and tasty.... More

Fabulous location to sit and have a drink while you wait for your ship to come in. Just wish they still had live music!

This is the restaurant at the Cape May- Lewes Ferry Terminal. In warm weather the burgers are grilled right by the docks- fun to watch the activity of the bay and enjoy very good food and drinks

Wanted to grab a bite & this place was quick & convenient. We had fish & chips 2 burgers & a crab sandwich which was a tad on the overdone side. The burgers & sandwich came with chips that looked homemade & were very good. Seating is outside on the water. Food was good, prices reasonable, our only concern were... More
