Well I just don't know where to start, The YB is just so tasty. Great atmosphere, delicious food (P.S. I'm a vegetarian who eats seafood), lovely staff. Thanks for many creative and quality dinners for a great value! And let's be honest, who doesn't like pudding shots?

Excellent value which is often difficult to find in Cape May ! Have gone each stay for several years and are always totally satisfied ! Don't miss the Belushi burger and duck fat fries for lunch ! Many interesting and affordable dinner options as well. Be sure to go to the rest room ! Sounds weird but you will get... More

This is the second time trying the cuisine of this small and quaint restaurant. Both times it was out of season and both times I am glad I made a reservation. One attraction I had, and apparently the same for many others, is this restaurant is byob. Practically every customer walks in with one or more bottles of wine in... More

This is our go to restaurant in CM. Great reasonable food. When we decided to get married on the beach this summer YB seemed the perfect place to have our small reception (37 guests). Peter, the owner, worked with me to create a custom menu to my liking, and responded quickly to my many emails with questions/requests leading up to... More

On Saturday night, we decided to try Y.B. Eat Place again. We've had good meals there before. I have to say this was truly an outstanding meal. Started with swordfish tacos as an appetizer - this very tasty app comes with guacamole. The tacos were crunchy and the swordfish was very flavorful. I could make a meal out of these... More

We like George's so decided to give his brother's restaurant a try. The set up was cute, although the chairs are somewhat uncomfortable. The wait staff were pleasant and efficient. We suspected they might not take CC but had to ask. Since many tourists come to town, they should put that on the menu, so people don't have to scramble... More

A nice, low key place with reasonably priced dishes and excellent food. We will definitely come back here on our next visit to Cape May.

Sunday morning. In dire need of coffee and food after a hard Saturday night attending a friend's wedding. We couldn't get in to George's in less than a 45 minute wait, so decided on y.b. First.... The place is cute, small, and amazingly clean. Solid menu offering pretty much what you would expect for breakfast; Benedicts, good looking pancakes, excellent... More
