My husband and I really enjoyed our dinner at the Cape May Fish Market. I had a 1 1/2 lobster and my husband, swordfish. Both were tasty & we totally enjoyed our meal! The best part of the meal was the Clam Chowder. My husband ordered it and when I tasted it, I ordered a cup of my own! It... More

Seven of us stopped in for lunch after the Coast Guard graduation on Friday. Surprisingly, the place only had like four tables occupied - granted we were there around 2pm. We all ordered full meals - and you would think that we were doing them a favor coming in. The Russian speaking waitress could care less if we were there.... More

My husband and I recently visited Cape May, for my birthday. We weren't sure what we wanted to eat, so we just strolled along the mall and checked out the menus at some of the restaurants. We decided to eat at the Cape May Fish Market, after we saw jumbo fried oysters on the menu. After we placed our orders,... More

I had exactly what I wanted....they let me customize my broiled seafood dinner and mix it with pasta/olive oil/extra garlic. The seafood was fresh and cooked to perfection. Definitely go there again ! Restaurant was clean, great wait staff and they did separate checks which is so helpful.

We went there for lunch - kids liked the mac and cheese and grilled cheese sand. Good soup and salad too. This place is in the Washington Street shops area. Casual and good prices

This is a good lunch spot-lots of options. The lobster roll was very good, served with a side of fries and coleslaw. Husband had the oyster Po Boy (they call it a hoagie) which he enjoyed-it came with chips and coleslaw. Daughter had the tuna melt that included both ricotta and cheddar cheeses-she said the ricotta was a nice surprise.... More

My husband and I went here for lunch not much open this time of year in Cape May. We always wanted to go but in the summer always crowded. I was amazed how delicious the fish and chips where. The batter was light not greasy and the taste was good. Our food was piping hot and delicious. I can see... More

We stopped in for lunch this past weekend. We both ordered New England clam chowder and conch fritters. The soup was delicious! It was the best I've had in a long time. The fritters were pretty awful. There was tons of batter on it making them very doughy, the fish was chewy and the plum sauce just didn't go well... More

Whether you are a lover of great seafood, entrée salads, burgers, or steaks, your biggest challenge will be deciding what to order from the extensive menu. Portions are fresh and generous and can be ordered anyway you like… cooked, fried or broiled. Servers are friendly, knowledgable, and very helpful. The old pub-like atmosphere is welcoming. You can also order fresh... More
