A good bartender is worth their weight in gold. Excellent drinks! I ordered a simple cocktail and they made me a healthy one. :) I had fish combo with pasta, Excellent! Heard they are making changes this winter, can't wait to return next summer! Susan H

We always enjoy our visit to the Pilot House when in Cape May. Though we enjoyed our meal, we really liked the old dinner options. Several of the classics have disappeared from the menu. Plus, it's very pricey now. Service was good. Not sure if we'll be back to PH next summer. We'll see. Hopefully the menu will balance out... More

My son (7 yrs old) requests that we go here every year, whether it be for lunch or dinner. This year we saw the portions grow exponentially. We ordered the pretzel appetizer for the kids and my wife ordered the Mediterranean side salad. Lets just say that when our dinners came out, the kids didnt eat one bite of it,... More

I have eaten at the Pilot house in years past but simply was not impressed. However, hearing that they recently were under new management my husband and I decided to give it another shot. Wow, were we impressed. Not only was the food absolutely to die for (I had the steak frites my husband had the crab cake sandwich) but... More

We took 14 people including 5 children here to eat and the service was good as was the food. Even the kids enjoyed it.

I loved this place in 2013, couldn't wait to go back. What a disappointment, way to much money, for not a lot of food, or even good food.

Great spot for a real meal late at night, when most other restaurants are closed. The live music was great and they never made us feel rushed.

Stopped here on the way to the local theater. Sat at the bar where we were offered the option of the full menu or the bar menu. The Chalkboard special of Coconut Shrimp and mango cole slaw caught my eye. My wife had the grilled chicken caeser salad. Bar service was excellent and the food arrived promptly. The Pilot House...

Had the steak frites, it was excellent. I was very happy with service. Our waiter Ron recommended a delicious coctail. Would recommend this place to anyone.

We ate at the newly renovated PH on a recent trip to Cape May. We have three kids ages 6, 9 & 11 so we were looking for a family friendly place to eat. The menu was average priced (for CM) & offered a nice variety of entrees & sandwiches. We all enjoyed our food except my shrimp tacos were... More

PeterShieldsInn, Owner at Pilot House, responded to this review

We at the Pilot House really dropped the ball with Tara and her family's experience. As the owner I was embarrassed with our nickel and dime performance. We purchased the Pilot House 9 weeks ago and have had our fair share of start up issues, we are working hard to improve the guest experience. Our policy is unlimited free refills,... More
