Fun Not Fancy

Come for the killer views! Everything is casual and served in baskets. Food is decent pub like fare at moderate prices-- the potato chips are good but the addition of hand cut fries would blow this place out of the water ( no pun intended)😀 service has always been friendly even during busiest... read more

On the Rocks is a great place to relax, mingle with people that are there for the same purpose or to catch a Ferry to Cape May N. J.. A lot of locals go there to relax and watch the sights on the Delaware Bay. Yes you can also have a beverage of your choice, alcohol or no, they also... More

While waiting for your ferry trip or just to sit by the water and enjoy a cocktail this is a very nice place. You get great service, delicious drinks and lots of beautiful views. Very relaxing.

Between paved outdoor seating and cooking of hot stuff at the bar it is excruciating to hang out. But there are some shady areas if you get there early. I think fall and spring would be awesome here! Can't hate being on the water no matter how uncomfortable, right?

This is the outside bar at the Ferry terminal and has a good selection of local and national beers and a full bar. Food offerings are mostly of the 'cookout' nature....burgers and fries, etc.

It's really just a pit stop place for a quick bite and a drink or to sit and take on the view. It's nice that it is there to pass the time while waiting to board the ferry.

Good food, great view watching ferries come in but waiting 40 minutes for lunch especially if catching the ferry is unacceptable. The cafe was not busy. Chips were very tasty as was the clams casino flatbread and kraut dog. We ate on the Cape May side.

Four adults, one toddler and 2 dogs!! A wait staff nightmare. Had a delicious lunch. Playground and putt putt for entertainment. Great view. Food was good. Try the crab dip. Will return.
