Once you have tried the food at YB'S you will return, again and again. Peter and his staff will make your visit delicious and memorable.

Stopped here for lunch around noon on a Saturday during the summer and were seated right away. I got the grilled cheese, and the others in my group got the mahi mahi sandwich and chicken quesadilla - all were good! This was our second time at this restaurant and we were not disappointed, will definitely return! Cash only, so bring... More

Y.B..... George's Place and Pano....... The best of Cape May! I loved the fish tacos, the waffles/chicken and the amazing Pork Chops! Too bad the close in the winter. They should at least stay open until the Fall Jazz Festival.

Totally awesome!!! But Peter and his staff deserve a lot more than two words and they can pair your wine (it is BYOB) with their dishes.

The food here was very good and we were seated immediately, which was nice. However, this restaurant is cash only, so we ended up having to leave to get cash from an ATM down the street and then go back, which was inconvenient. The wait staff was not unkind, but rather unenthusiastic and seemed rather bored. The overall appeal of... More

We had dinner there, and it was excellent. We loved the breakfast so much, we went there twice. Like the atmosphere, decor - across from beach in cape may, great service. Wonderful omelets, eggs benedict. Very accomodating. My new favorite spot.

We were not able to dine at YB this latest visit, mid September to Cape May since they were only serving dinner and we had booked our dinners already. We usually like to go to The YB for lunch and were so disappointed to find out they were closed when we got there. We ended up eating at George's a... More

This is a cute little restaurant. all you can eat for $9 from a menu. Nice service - who isn't nice in Cape May! Eggs benedict was yummy but not amazing. I will go back for sure - just for the value...

I dont want to tell the world about this because its a tiny little place, best part is no kid rule here, you can enjoy a nice grown up dinner with grownups! Loved everything we had, the tacos, fresh cut fries, the olives, I hate olives and found myself fighting my husband for them so when I come back I... More
