I had five people in my party. The table was small for us. We were in a booth. The food was good and worth the price for the amount we received.

Great drinks, music, and people. After only minutes there we started to mix it up and party with the locals. Great beer selection set in a comfortable atmosphere. Will definitely hang there again.

We can never get service when we stop in. Have gone back a few times to try again. No luck. Maybe it's us.

Just ate lunch at the Ugly Mug. Fun place to eat right in the heart of Cape May. It was just lunch so I had a cheesesteak and my friend a burger and sweet potato fries. She raved about the fries. We were there off season and despite this food was good and place was packed. Our waiter was great,... More

The Ugly Mug is just a good ole' bar! This is a great place to have a cold beer and a burger. If a sports fan-they have many TV's. Whenever in Cape May-we always stop in. It is a fun bar.

At The Ugly Mug you can get yourself a simple burger to a scrumptious seafood platter! Whatever your palette's in the mood for. Great food, reasonably priced. Also, the locals make the "out-of-towner's" feel right at home. Any of the locals will be happy to tell you the story of the mugs hanging from the ceilings! A MUST TRY!!!!!!

My wife and I tried the Ugly Mug for dinner during one evening while visiting Cape May. We had no complaint whatsoever about the staff and the food. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was not fancy - just good, plain, very tasty food, It was a very enjoyable place to visit.

One of my favorite places to eat when I visit Cape May. A little pricey but the atmosphere is great and the food is good.
