YB was humming last night so it looks like it will be a good season for them. My 12 Ounce Pork Chop was excellent. It was served with candied sweet onions and a very creative fingerling salad. I will certainly order that again. My wife had Mahi Mahi and was very pleased with her meal. The menu is fairly limited,... More

The Y.B. Eat Place turned Sean's old location into one of the best spots in Cape May. When I visited back in November, John from George's Place was over helping out his Younger Brother (YB) Peter, the brilliant chef responsible for the best ahi tuna I have ever had (served with wasabi mango salsa). Everyone at my table was in... More

We have had delicious dinners and breakfasts at The Y.B. Eat Place in Cape May. One of my favorite dinners is the tuna which is served with couscous and a very special wasabi which is presented on the plate in a way that is pleasing to the eye and it wakes up all the taste buds in a great way....

Great atmosphere with simple decor made for a welcoming dining experience. The small menu has a unique twist. Our appetizer consisted of the macaroni poppers with jalapeno stewed tomatoes and swordfish tacos. I would advise these choices! For my entree, I got the steak with duck fat fries and my friend had mahi mahi. Both to die for. Looking forward... More

Having really enjoyed (brother) George's Place a few doors up the street we were expecting good things. Didn't turn out that way. The place is cute but the food was average at best. They seemed have the right idea but the execution was lacking. Lukewarm coffee and a "cash only" policy, which we learned of when tried to pay with... More

My husband and I had dinner at YB on 9/10 and loved it. We shared swordfish tacos and crab cake and enjoyed both ... crab cake presentation was wonderful and so flavorful. I had tuna with couscous (with black wasabi ... wonderful) and my husband had the steak with duck fat fries. Both were very good though my husband would... More

Hotel staff and strangers at the pool raved about this place so we went to check it out. Don't let the small store front fool you...there's some good eats going on in there. YB - younger brother of Cape May staple George's...served up a turkey dish that was featured on DD&D that was amazing. Coupled with attentive friendly service -... More

Lovely, fresh menu options, friendly service and a great view! We are just sorry that we didn't make it there for dinner, too. The Greek salad and swordfish blt were both excellent. Save your $, have a drink or two at the popular (and overrated) hotels and posh resturants, grab a bottle of wine and head to y.b. 's for... More
