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

They lost our reservation but took us in after 20 min wait. They didn't even buy as a drink. The room was loud the food taste was average at best, after... 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!

My husband and I will always be a big fan of the Ebbitt Room, all of the Virginia is a very beautiful and relaxing environment. We love to come a little before our reservation and get cocktails on the porch or by the bar. Our cocktail waitress was very sweet and our server was extremely personable and attentive. Our drinks...

This is a beautiful place for a special occasion. Of course it is inside an old Victorian hotel with creaky wooden floors. We had to change our table because the floor kept moving when the staff walked by. That said, the food was fresh farm to table, with a good presentation and excellent taste. The steak I ate was perfect.... More

This is a real classy place. Great food, wonderful service and a relaxing and romanic atmosphere. Great for couples but went there with a large party (reserved the back room) and a great time! I highly recommend !
