The bartenders in Cape May seem to favor the locals!!! We visited on a rainy saturday to sit at the bar and watch college football. After waiting 15 minutes to be acknowledged.....only 6 others at the bar.......the very rude bartender ask "what do you want." We asked a question about what games are available to watch. The bartender replied..."just give... More

Not bad, but not super great either. We had wanted to go to Hot Dog Tommy's but they were closed (boo!), and we parked in front of this place, so we gave it a try. My husband ordered the Lobster Grilled Cheese which was soooo darn good. He also enjoyed the Tomato Bisque soup that came with it. I ordered... More

We have eaten at Carney's many times over the past several years, and have always had great food, great service, and have never been disappointed. Their menu offers a wide variety of choices so everyone is sure to find something . Prices are very reasonable. The staff and owner are aways very friendly and treat you like old friends !... More

There is no restaurant in Cape May quite like Carney's. I never tire of the friendly atmosphere; simply put, it's like going home. The food and drinks are excellent. The ambience casual and comfortable. The owner is amazingly attentive and hard working (it is easy to tell he love the food and beverage business). I have been fortunate to have... More

The food was good. I had a burger that was great. Two others in our party had steaks they enjoyed. The service was slow and we had to wait for drinks/refills. We were there over a holiday weekend but I expect them to staff according

I have never experienced such chaos before. The owner was fighting with middle age couple they paid bill leaving with owner following them out the door yelling and cursing. The food and service was not worth what our bill was never again.

My bartender was attentive and the food amazing. We went for happy hour and thoroughly enjoyed the $5 appetizers. I don't know about the owner but the chef Robert Moody came out to talk to us and check on the food. The flat bread pizza was the best thin crust pizza I've had. If you know Pete and Elda's this...
