I recently had dinner at Aleathea's Restaurant with a group of friends. There were 14 of us so we made reservations early as we were attending a show at the Convention Center after dinner and wanted to allow plenty of time to eat. I choose the restaurant based on it's close proximity to the Convention Center as well as the... More

The food here is amazing, it is just as much a part of our annual trip as the beach is, the waitress talked to our kids and complimented their coloring skills. The beef carpaccio appetizer is delicous, as well as any fish they offer. I highly recommend

Went for lunch in mid-August with a friend on a recommendation from a local resident. I had wanted to eat on the porch outside. When I found someone to talk to they told me to order at the window and find a seat. There were five tables, all needing to be cleaned. I went inside to eat, got settled at... More

You need reservations over the weekend. Great food. Moderately priced. A short walk from the beach. Casual but very nice place.

The fact that they advertised that family's were welcome is what brought us here. The food and service is what will bring us back. It was fine dining but still had a nice beach theme/feel to it. Our kids were some-what behaved but it didn't seem to bother anyone else there including the staff. The food was fantastic...I had the... More

The Inn itself leaves lots to be improved. Aleathea's is consistently good. The staff at times is hit or miss. However, it's not crazy expensive, all the dishes are fresh and very good. The decor is dated, but I guess that's the idea. The staff as a whole for both breakfast and dinner should remember the guests are paying their... More

Probably our favorite place to eat in Cape May. We are summer residents and eat here quite often. Great food, and great service and great value. You have to try the grouper.

Cape May is a great summer place but it doesn’t offer a variety of choices when it comes to fine dining. Aleathea’s is a combination of a fine and casual dining, it’s a lovely ocean front though it’s hard to see the ocean directly from where the restaurant is because the views are blocked by the beach front stores.
