A Tradition for Dinner

Aleathea's is part of the historic Inn of Cape May with views onto the beach and ocean. The atmosphere is informal. The food is simple but well prepared. The early bird special is a good deal with three courses and a variety of options. The menu for later is extensive. We have visited several... read more

One afternoon, on a recent visit to Cape May, my husband and I stopped at Aleathea's to make a reservation for that evening. The reservation was for 5:45 and I asked the woman at the desk if I could request a table in the back, next to the windows (view of the ocean). She said that would not be a... More

I thoroughly enjoyed the grouper special undergirded with a salty layer of spinach and hefty risotto base. The dish was piping hot and proportioned to be filling for even the heartiest appetite. Skip the crostini, as the boiled red pepper and other ingredients turn a crispy bread into mush rather quickly. Be sure to try the flourless chocolate cake, as... More

We arrived at Aleathea's at 5:55 p.m., and were told that we were just in time for the "early bird" special. We didn't know about this and were glad they told us. For $25 we got a three course meal and a glass of wine, which is a very good value, as food is very expensive in Cape May. The... More

My husband wanted to take me out to dinner on my birthday. So after work we walked around Cape May and then I remembered I wanted to go to back to Aleathea's after dining here with a friend about 5 years ago. It was a great choice! We had their Tue-Wed-Thur dinner special (5-8 pm) where we got a three... More

I liked this restaurant, because the food was good, and there was nice piano music. The pianist has a repertoire of light classical pieces, such as

Had Sunday breakfast here. My husband had a lobster omelet and it was stuffed with delicious lobster. I had the Eggs Benedict, and it was very good. Only complaint- the coffee is on the weak side. Otherwise a pleasant ocean-view place for breakfast

This was our first time eating at a restaurant for Thanksgiving Dinner. After looking at other Thanksgiving menus we chose Aleathea's because it was the most traditional. We requested a table in the corner because we have an infant and they were very accommodating to that request. We also have nut allergies and our server was very good about letting... More

My wife & I took advantage of the "Early Bird Special" on the Friday of the Exit 0 Jazz Fest. What a great deal: 3 courses and wine for $25.00 each! We split an appetizer (try the "lamp lollypops"!), salads, delicious filet mignon and shared cheesecake for dessert! Great location! Great service! Great food! Great deal!
