My husband and I wanted a quiet and relaxing bite to eat so we made a quick reservation on open table and in 30 min. We were seated. The meals were the perfect size and the service was great. Helen, the bartender was super cute and friendly and good at her drinks! My husband and I had a great time.... More

This restaurant was recommended by many friends and it did not disappoint. It deserves all the great reviews. Some of the tables are rather close so if this is an issue for you, ask for a different table. We ordered the deviled eggs which are their signature appetizer which consisted of three halves each with a different topping. They were... More

My husband and I were recommended to this restaurant by a friend that has a place down here. We were advised to make a reservation, so We made a reservation on Friday for Sunday dinner. We both had the filets and they were beyond excellent. I think the portions are small for the price. It's a little pricey so I'd... More

This turned out to be our favorite dining experience in Cape May. Inside the restaurant it was stylish, the waitress (April) very friendly and attentive and the food amazing. Good value for the quality and dining experience. This restaurant is family friendly.

It has been awhile since we ate at the Ebbitt Room which is one of our favorite restuarants in Cape May. We treated ourselves on our vacation this week to an upscale restuarant meal. I heard they got a new chef and wanted to try it. The new menu was fabulous. The meal was absolutely perfect and the dessert even... More

We visit the Ebbitt Room often and were recently informed that the Ricotta Donuts were being taken off the dessert menu. Apparently these are one of their best selling desserts so it's difficult to understand why they won't remain on the menu. These donuts are some of the best I've had anywhere and it would be a shame to see... More

On our past trips to Cape May, I had always wanted to try The Ebbitt Room because of the good reviews I've read. Our reservation was lost, which was not a big deal as they managed to seat us in their incredibly crowded and tightly-packed dining room somehow. Unfortunately for us and all the other diners crushed together, the air... More

We had reservations for 7:45 and sat on the porch for one hour waiting for our table. The hostess never came out to explain or to offer us complimentary drinks or something. I know this place is dynamic but a one hour wait with a reservation. One of our friends in the party got up and asked about our table.... More

Jordan, our waiter, was awesome!!! We had a 5:45 reservation and had delays from traffic. Arrived 15 minutes late, no problem, we were seated right away. In a matter of moments, we were approached by Jordan. Jordan told us all about the local farm as well as the additions to the menu. The Lobster Caesar Salad was excellent, raw oysters... More
