Four of us ventured here on a weeknight in the off-season. My wife and I hadn't been to the Pilot House in years; the other couple had been here more recently, but not since it went under new management. Two of the four of us were displeased with our entrees--I with my fried calamari, which was more raw than fried;... More

After reading a few critical reviews, we decided to find out for ourselves, and weren't disappointed. We asked to be seated somewhere warm and were put at a table right next to the fireplace. The service could not have been more attentive. We asked our waitress, Kathleen, for advice on food and she cheerfully guided us to great choices. When... More

Service was great. Our server Ronnie greeted us right away, when I asked about beer selections he suggested one from the local brewery there in Cape May and it was really good. Got to relax a little by the fireplace before ordering. Husband had Salmon and I had a flat iron steak sandwich. Both of us were extremely happy with... More

We've been dining at the Pilot House since 1986 and have always had a good experience. After a long hiatus we returned last week. We knew the place had been remodeled but hoped we would find the same level of service and quality of food we had enjoyed over the years. Upon entering we saw that less than 1/3 of... More

The food was mediocre. The service was terrible. We were ignored the entire meal. Our drinks were empty for a half hour, and the waiter wouldn't even make eye contact, let alone ask us if we needed anything. The bell boy was more helpful than our waiter!! Do yourself a favor...keep walking when you pass by this restaurant!!

More over-priced poor quality Cape May fare! I was so disgusted with the food I just left. When the "waitress" (a child family member of the manager's, apparently) asked if something was wrong and I told her yes she got her mother who protested that the food was fresh. It tasted as though it had been pulled out of the... More

My wife & I traveled to Cape May on Thursday night before the Exit 0 Jazz Festival. We were seated promptly and Shane provided courteous, attentive service throughout our dinner. We felt very comfortable at the high tables- nestled in-between the bar and tables. I loved the mix of clientele: singles, couples, groups and families. A nice casual vibe. Nice... More
