Very good. Went here for lunch with my husband. We enjoyed a bowl of chili with nacho chips for an appetizer. The chili was very meaty and tasty.

My wife and I spend Christmas in Cape May. We weren't sure what places were going to be open on Christmas but the Ugly Mug didn't let us down. Everything from the appetizers to dessert was exceptional. The service was outstanding. This is a must visit place to eat when you visit Cape May.

My wife and I have been before. We have always have had good food, friendly staff. We were out enjoying some wine tastings around the area; needed to get a quick bite to eat. We were seated fast and our order was taken.... food & drink was there quick. Good place for bar food & atmosphere.

Title says it all, its a cool place to go for a drink and serves very good bar food. Love all the mugs the members have, but there's no room for new members.

Would never go back. Filthy, terrible service and awful food. Was the only place we could get into and now I know why. Not only did the food take forever the place was dark, dingy and dirty. Would not recommend at all!

Good cold drinks and typical bar food. Service was prompt and friendly. We always stop by and have a drink here when we are in town.

Average food with average service. The only thing above average was the prices. Definitely a tourist trap. Taxi drivers would steer you away from this palce.

Good food but WAY OVER PRICED! USED to be a GREAT local watering hole in Cape May. Now under new ownership they are just way over priced!
