We had two very weight watchers friendly dinners, something hard to find in cape may. The food was cooked as we ordered. Portions were generous, and service was very pleasant and efficient. The atmosphere very typical for an older well kept cape may institution

We had dinner here recently for our anniversary. The service was excellent and the seafood was fresh. It's a great atmosphere for dining on the bay. We've been here before and the food never disappoints. If you're looking for a good seafood meal, you can't go wrong with The Lobster House.

We had a great lunch at the Lobster House Restaurant & Bar in Cape May, NJ. We have had lunch at the Lobster House several times and have never been disappointed. You can't go wrong with their sea food. We got there right at lunch time so we had a little wait; but that just shows you it is a... More

My wife and took a side trip to Cape May while on trip to see a college friend. We had an early dinner at Lobster House. When we arrived it was not busy and we were seated right away. The food was good but I've had better claim chowder in Maine. My wife had crab cakes and I had broiled... More

Immediate seating on a Thursday night. Service was the best all week. Started out with cocktails and loaf a bread, then appetizer. Salad followed and then the main course. Water was refreshed without asking and completed dishes cleared rather than piling up. Prices were reasonable in comparison to other restaurants in the area. Our waitress, Samantha, was the best.

Two of us arrived around six pm, expecting a long wait since finding a spot to park wasn't easy. We'd heard the warnings: the Lobster House fills up fast. But, we got a table immediately, deep in the heart of this rambling waterfront mainstay overlooking the harbor. Some old timers and locals may turn their nose up at the Lobster... More

The menu was vast. It not only included seafood but other choices. The quality of the food was perfect and the waitstaff was very attentive. The view of the water was a bonus!

We sat at the bar because we like to talk to the bartenders. Usually they are able to interact with the customers easier than waiters and waitresses. We found Georgia, the bartender, to be funny, informative and efficient. The bar was full but that didn't keep her from taking care of her customers and the drink orders from the wait... More

Decided to give it a try for lunch after having seafood from their market before. If you've never been there, you're kind of blindsided with the prices since they don't list them on their internet menus. Took us a little bit to find the hostess since the entrance inside is not clearly marked. Seated promptly. I don't understand why you... More
