We had lunch here on a gorgeous mid October day. The window was open and the breeze delightful. My biggest complaint is that the music was constant and loud...got to be irritating! Maybe it is set at a certain level and because there were few customers, it was louder than usual. My husband and I had a cup of soup... More

We had lunch at the open air Cabanas Beach Bar. The marquee said M’Ocean and the check said Cabanas. The two share the same owner. Our server, Conner, was personable. We both had the appetizer portion of beer battered fish & chips described as Atlantic Cod. The food arrived crispy & hot consisting of three planks of fish with dill... More

I love fish tacos and had a craving while we vacationed in CapeMay. Walking off the beach to Cabanas to sit by the window and people watch while eating. We order a summer ale on tap and fish tacos. Service was fast and friendly. I ordered the mahi and my husband order the battered cod. My tacos came out cold... More

On a fairly quiet Sunday night (9/14/14) hubby and I returned to Cabanas - as we have done several times since "discovering" it two years ago. It was around 7pm and the hostess seated us promptly at a high bar table, handed us menus and told us our waitress would be right over. Didn't happen. The waitress acknowledged us once... More

We came here a few months ago and were very happy and decided to try again and guess what?! We still love Cabanas! My husband loved the Fish Tacos so much last time, he ordered them again and really enjoyed them. I had the Mexican Seafood Cobb Salad, which was fantastic! Huge shrimp, tons of vegetables and a great dressing.... More

We went here on a recommendation of someone in our party. I was sort of taken back when I first walked in. It appeared to be a local hangout, but my apprehensions disappeared quickly. There was an assortment of people including families. We were seated by one of the large removable windows which made it feel like we were outside.... More

While our waitress was fine the food she brought to the table was pathetic. It was as if the cooks had not even attempted to make it palatable and what we ordered was simple food. We ordered Jerk Chicken for ourselves and the teenage kids had chicken fingers. To say that the Jerk chicken was overcooked and tasteless is being... More

The food was ok...I had a pulled pork sandwich with pineapple. It wasn't anything to 'write home about'. The fries were cold and entirely too salty. Mango margarita was delicious! There are TVs everywhere with the sound on (sports)...so it was quite loud.

Cabanas appears to be a local hangout, good for a cold beer and certainly if you enjoy looking at sporting events on the many, many TVs available you will be in heaven. To go there to eat, however, was a disappointment for lunch. The service was good, but the veggie flatbread appetizer, and the grilled chicken sandwich was just okay,... More
