Carney's has a great Happy Hour. We went on a Saturday while it was overcast & a little rainy. We were so excited we made happy hour since our beach time was cut short. The happy hour was from 3 to 6. This place had a really friendly staff that provided excellent service. They offered great prices for drinks and... More

We have eaten there several times during trips to Cape May and have always enjoyed the food. Typical pub/bar feel but the food and service is somewhat better than average. I recommend it.

My husband had a great grouper sandwich there, and the fish was fresh caught that day, so it was even better. I had a burger, and that was also very good. The menu had several great choices, and the prices very reasonable! I recommend eating there!!!

Lobster grilled cheese and crab cakes were delicious, although tomato bisque was a bit on the cool side. If we had noted it the waiter would have promptly fixed it, but we were too stuffed to care:) Guacamole w/chips and calimari were delicious and at 5 dollars a plate couldn't be beat. Two dollar draft added up to 58 .00... More

Carney's is my "go to" restaurant for almost 30 years now. The food is great and the prices are reasonable. Some of my favorites - crab cakes, salmon and, of course, the burgers. It's a nice atmosphere and the wait staff is fantastic.

We got to town 9pm and were worried everywhere would be closed. Luckily the town stays open pretty late. We randomly walked in here because the menu looked good. I had a turkey club sandwich which was pretty good, however, too much meat for my taste. My mother had a crab cake sandwich which she said was okay. Nothing too... More

The location is conveniently located across from the promenade in town. The food was excellent and the staff were so nice. We felt very welcome. Danny the bartender makes a perfect chocolate martini for dessert. All 6 of us were very happy with our meals. The experience was worth the price.

Without knowing it, we arrived for the early bird special. The Nacho's were delicious as was my spaghetti and clams. My husband ordered the hamburger and enjoyed it very much. The service and the wait staff were extremely friendly. The alcohol drinks weren't as good as the rest.

My wife and I have been coming here for years and have never had a bad meal. Couple that with friendly service and this makes it a place to go to.
