Loved the outdoor seating and being able to people watch while dining. We had lunch there. Food was good as well as the service. Great spot for a quick bite during your day.

We stopped here after arriving in Cape May while we waited for our check in time at our rental. The food was fantastic... the sandwiches we got for lunch were huge and we had the leftovers for lunch again the next day. The staff is all very friendly and it's got a fun, casual feel. I would absolutely go back... More

It's a cute bar in the middle of the mall, so it's convenient. Stop for a drink. The drinks were great. The food is truly awful. Two adults and a child…$95 and none of us could finish our meal it was so gross. I've had frozen dinners that tasted better than here, and these meals probably were frozen. Buffalo shrimp... More

We went for lunch and had Adam as our waiter. He was a pleasure. Food came out very quick and was Very tasty! Large portions! All sandwiches are served with chips. It would be nice if fries were included instead. Overall pleasant experience. We will be back next time were in cape may!

The service was prompt and super friendly. My husband had one of the best hamburgers he'd had in a long time, and my cheesesteak sub with mushrooms was delicious. The place was very crowded and noisy during lunch hours. It was okay for a quick lunch, but it am not sure I would go there for a quiet, romantic dinner.

This place is like an old irish bar - dark wood, big bar area. We went for dinner and drinks; The food is good - great soup and pub food; Fried calamari was awesome. It was busy and bustling - not a quiet place. Service was friendly.

Just a casual, friendly kind of place. The food is your usual bar food but lots of it! When you're looking for a beer and a bite to eat, visit this place. I highly recommend the French Dip! The entertainment is great and there are plenty of TVs if you're interested in watching a game or two at the bar.

Food was very good. Prices were average. The outside lighting was HORRIBLE! I had to ask the waitress if I could borrow a fake candle from another table to see my menu and then I ended up getting up to view the menu by street light.

The staff is super friendly. The food was good. The cost of the food is a little too high. If you are seat inside it is too hot. They need to increase the a. c. Also the back door stays open and allows all the smoke to come in.
