First time in July 2015 - fun bar.

It's 'my kind of place' as far as atmosphere goes. Fantastic bartender and when we moved to a table our server was very good too. Ok food - didn't expect gourmet. My boyfriend looooved the Tater Tots loaded with good stuff. Going back to Cape May for a long weekend over Halloween weekend - hope... read more

This place used to be great. It is right on the beach, and we would head here every summer for margaritas, cold beer, and decent pub style food. Not sure if the management changed, or if they just decided to change the menu. They no longer have the margaritas menu, and the food is overpriced for the almost fast food... More

We always seem to make a trip to Cabana's when we are in Cape May. It is my our go to date night location. They have good drink and food specials. Everything that comes out of the kitchen is quality.

First off. All you need to know is it's fantastic for lunch or dinner. Great drinks great food. Casual relaxed fun dinning. The reviews were misleading. *** Ok. For all of you still reading and want more details. I went with my girl. We were looking for a place to eat. The reviews for this place were misleading. Some said... More

Great flatbreads, good drinks and reasonably priced. I had sushi, which is always risky at a place like this, but it was really good! Great happy hour specials, right across the street from the beach!

We spent $140 on terrible food and slow waitressing on 7/13/15. The calamari tasted like the fryer grease hadn't been changed since the Nixon Administration, while two taco salads were an odd collection of odd ingredients with either boring chicken or even more boring pork was the headliner. We have eaten here several times over the years, but we were... More

We stopped for dinner and we were pleased with our meals. I had the fish tacos, did not want the spicy sauce that came on with it. The waitress immediately offered me one of the less spicy sauces. Our dinners came out in a reasonable time, they were hot and delicious. My husband had the blackened Mahi Mahi sandwich that... More

We first checked out Cabanas for lunch on our first day in Cape May, and ended up going back a couple of times! The bartenders are awesome- best Bloody Mary I've ever had! The food is good, the atmosphere relaxed, and is right on Beach Ave, so you can just leave your stuff on the beach, walk up and do... More

We stopped by for a quick bite to eat before our trolley tour. Service was excellent as was the live music. We ordered the nachos and wings which were good. The fajitas were overly marinated making them too salty. I chose an orzo salad over greens which was disappointing. The orzo was saturated in dressing and the lettuce was wilted.... More
