Food is so so. The potato salad was excellent. Salads and sandwiches were adequate. The view is nice but covered with plastic when it rains. Servers were harried but doing their best.

We went here for breakfast after having some disappointing ones elsewhere in Cape May (see Zoe's and Uncle Bill's). This one was the real thing. You sit right on the beach - nothing but sand between you and waves. And the service was quick and breakfast fine. Even cooked the potatoes with onions as one should! Can't speak for lunch... More

We were recommended to McGlades by SUP Cape May for the best omelet ever....McGlades delivered with an awesome view to boot!!! I had the Uncle Pete: sausage, mozz, tomato, basil, and garlic. Sooooooo yummy! The fruit was sweet and juicy and the coffee hot. I will most definitely be back next time I am in town- it's an official new... More

Behind the Arcade and Morrow's Nut House at the end of Howard St., next to Convention Hall, overlooking the beach and ocean. We have been here several times, for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and have always found the service pleasant and the food delicious and obviously freshly prepared to order. A bit on the higher end in pricing for a... More

McQuads is right on the beach. You can look right on to the beach and ocean. We were pleasantly surprised, the food was very good. Good service and you can BYOB. Give it a try..

This place is hard to find, if you are not familiar with it. They say it is at the pier, but there really isn't a pier! There are some shops to the left of the convention center and McGlades is down the alley between them. You are dining right at the sand on the beach, and the food is really... More

Meals are good. Service was good. Seems to be getting pricier each year. Still a great view of the beach.

A few days before we had a nice breakfast there. Dinner was awful. The water served was warm, had to ask for ice. The clam chowder was a very spicy vegatable soup, with a few scraps of clam. The crab cakes were sort of soupy, very poor quality with not even visable crab m eat,just a crabby mush. The flounder... More
