Loved the $15 early bird specials this evening. Mixed it up in our party of 4; with crab cakes, steak, and salmon. Soups were black bean and tomato bisque. Desserts were choc mouse or cheesecake. Being the early bird, portions were good size (not over the top, but enough for 2 teenage boys). Everything was very good to excellent. Service... More

My husband and I wound up at Carney's one night for dinner. The food was so good! Next night we went to the Lobster House simply because that is one of the "mandatory" places to eat when you're in Cape May. I had crab cakes at both places, and Carney's was so much better! Def our new dinner spot when... More

Went to Carney's on a Monday night (Early Bird) and the food was great. Atmosphere hasn't changed much in the years we have been going: No entertainment that early. Saw no issue with owner as has been stated in a few previous. Never had a bad experience. Good portions and reasonable price.

I've been a summer resident of Cape May for more than 20 years and I have to say that this summer Carney's stepped up to the plate with the best burgers, wings, fries, sandwiches and salads compared to other bars in Cape May. Dinners are also excellent. Ingredients super-fresh, service (cute college kids) excellent and the atmosphere "beachie" and pleasant.

We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, as well as the location, which allowed us to "people-watch". The crab cakes were delicious, and the price was right!

carney's is a lovely restaurant on Beach Ave. in Cape May. We visited it for the first time last year, and went back again this year because the food and atmosphere are both wonderful. We even had the pleasure of getting to meet the owner this year!

Carney's is a simple no frill Irish restaurant in the heart of Cape May. However the food was quiet good and since we attended the early bird, rather reasonable. Carney's early bird has quite a few options that even satisfied my wife who is a vegetarian and gluten sensitive. I would recommend this place for an early bird special for... More

Carney's is right on Beach Avenue. We ate at a window table in Carney;s Other Room - what a view! I had a burger and my husband had one of the best Turkey club sandwiches he ever had. My sister-in-law had recommended Carney's and we are glad she did.
