This is a real gem in Cape May. It is in a Victorian B&B near the boardwalk - about a block from the ocean. The veranda/porch is terrific for a drink before dinner. If it ids too hot to sit outside, there is an air conditioned closed in porch and a lounge to have an aperitif. The atmosphere is superb... More

We booked a fancy meal here and I ordered the braised short rib with gnocchi. When it can to the table it was a tiny little bowl of gnocchi but absolutely no short rib to be found. I asked the waitress about it and she said she thought it was supposed to be "mixed in" somewhere but that she would... More

This is what a classic fine-dining restaurant in Cape May should be, but rarely is: inside a wonderful old Victorian inn, only half a block from the beach; filled with happy folks and families of all ages, everyone having a great time (and apparently a great meal), a piano player up front by the bar; good drinks, good food, good...

The Ebbitt Room was another Cape May gem. From the time we walked in the door and enjoyed a drink at the bar to the time we left we were treated excellent. Definitely recommend the deviled egg appetizer...it was out of this world. I've never ordered deviled eggs at a restaurant, but they are a MUST have. The scallops are... More

We picked this restaurant based on a recommendation from my parents. They do offer a price fixed early bird menu. We had to ask for that menu. The restaurant itself has a lot of charm as compared to some of the more beachy restaurants in Cape May. Definitely need to dress up a bit. The menu didn't appeal to our... More

Been going to the cape ~ 10 years...always bypassed it for no real reason. My wife and I finally tried it this summer. Excellent all around! Good bar...bartenders know how to make a good drink. The food was excellent, some unique dishes, and the service was great. A little on the pricey side but, it's summer time, the shore and... More

On a beautiful summer evening in Cape May NJ we walked to the Ebbitt Room from our hotel. The Ebbitt Room is located in the Virginia hotel on Jackson street in the heart of Cape May. A beautiful well maintained Victorian creates a wonderful atmosphere for dining. We made reservations which I highly recommend during the busy summer season. Seated... More

We've been to the Ebbitt Room many times and we're never disappointed. The cocktails, atmosphere, food and service are all excellent! Everything on the menu is delicious, but DO NOT MISS the calamari!!!!! It's the BEST!
