Stay away from the lobster roll.

Seafood platter was wonderful. The fried clams and lobster roll not so good. Pleasant wait staff, seated quickly for a hot August afternoon. Pet friendly. Make sure your pet is sociable.

Nice lunch place for the food and patio seating is pleasant. The service didn't smile but maybe she was having a bad day?

I came here with my friends and their two children, while we had a few hours to kill before catching the ferry. The restaurant seemed inviting and the decor was interesting and so we gave it a go. We ordered simple food of two salads, a lobster roll and one children's plate of prawns and fries. Thirty minutes later we... More

This restaurant is right on the Washington Street Mall, in the middle of all the great activity in historic Cape May. We were looking for fresh seafood and we found it here. I had the crab cake wrap and it was excellent and creative. My hubby had the seafood roll and said it was surprisingly good. The seafood was the... More

Nothing fancy here, just fresh food with great service. And at the end of the day that's all its about. Fair pricing for quality and service.

We went on Monday evening around 7:30pm, very busy summer night but we were able to get an outdoor table within 5mins. No bar at the restaurant but you can BYOB, there is a wine/beer store a block away so very easy to grab some adult beverages. I had a salad and crab cake sandwich and it was delicious. They... More

The place is typical for a touristy area. Big plates, friendly stuff. Since it is in Washington Square, they need to accommodate people fast. So the food is average, but proud won't be hungry afterwards since the plate size is pretty big.

We were walking around Cape May and decided to stop in for dinner. It was late and we were seated right away. The waitress we had was Melissa. She was excellent. We had buffalo wings and mozzarella sticks as an appetizer. They came quick and we're good. We all had burgers for dinner. They were fresh not frozen. They came... More

In a town with too many choices, this won't be one I make again. Pretty bland menu. The crab bruschetta appetizer special was decent. We decided to eat dinner somewhere else after sitting down and ordering a bottle of Hawk Haven Vineyard wine (the only option for adult beverages) which was very good.
