Great Early Bird Specials

Great food but happy hour specials they would not serve at tables, this made no sense - they are the losers for us to order beers and appetizers. The food is good for the price but they need to get rid of the flies. Good food in Cape May for a decent price.

Our 3 year old is special needs & nonverbal. Initially when sat, he started screaming because he could see the arcade directly across the street. My husband asked to be sat in the back of the restaurant, the hostess declined stating they were having work done in the back. My husband, sensing the annoyance of the other guests, suggested we...

After a great "early bird special" the night before, my wife and I decided to dine at Carney's again on Tuesday, June 23rd. While enjoying a delicious meal, suddenly the power in Cape May went out. It was 6:17pm when we first became aware of the outage and it was no later than 6:25pm when Carney's manager announced to the... More

We chose to get some take out food at Carney's, based on reviews on Trip Advisor. It was a very short walk from our hotel. We ordered, and 15 minutes later, it was waiting. We got some basic dishes, which were well executed, hot, and tasty. So good, we did take out a second time. Staff was very helpful and... More

The new menu has lots of new items to try as well as the standby favorites. Service is great. Never seems to be a wait for a table. Atmosphere is inviting. I cannot say enough about how caring this restaurant is managed.

It was not as warm as summer, but inside we were frozen. We asked to move and were accommodated with some dis-ease, but the food was good.

Great food and great service! Lobster grilled cheese is amazing! Waitress was friendly and very good however we had a dirty plate with chunks of food on it at our table setting and when I discreetly brought it to the waitresses attention she just took the plate and said nothing. Not even an apology for a dirty plate which was... More

Came here last week for lunch. Seated right away and food served promptly. Delicious wings with a unique sauce, nice blend sweet and spicy. Volcano shrimp were good, but not as tasty as they were the first time I tried theme, weren't as spicy as the name would have you believe. Great fries. Draft beer tasted a little off (BlueM)....

We ate at Carney's two times during our stay. The food was excellent. The scallop appetizer is awesome!
