Have eaten Sunday brunch there a bunch of times and now have eaten dinner there a few times and have never been disappointed. For dinner they have this steak (I never order steak out) but it is crusted with cocoa and coffee and it is wonderful, I get it done med/rare and it is done perfectly. For me the chimichuri... More

My wife and I have been celebrating our Anniversary in Cape May for many years and have enjoyed dining at some of Cape Mays' best restaurants. Last year we discovered The Blue Rose Inn while walking around town and are so happy we did. This BYO has great food with friendly and attentive service, set in a relaxing, well restored,... More

Ordered the set price menu. The pear salad creation was better than the waiter professed. My Short Ribs cooked in a Cabernet Sauvignon reduction was fantastic. The killer triple chocolate cake was a small taste delight. Wife's Salmon was up to her standards. Will be back.

....because the food deserves it! We ate at the Blue Rose the Saturday after Christmas and after the house tour. Simply an outstanding meal! In the Cape May tradition, dinner is served on the enclosed tavern porch. I had the pumpkin soup - rich and tasty. The coffee and cocoa crusted steak with the chimichuri was outstanding. The steak was... More

My husband and I went to the Blue Rose for dinner for my birthday in December! It was one of the best meals we ever had! Unreal! My first course of Duck Confit & Sunchoke Ravioli on red beet purée, pine nuts watercrest and white truffle oil was so delicious. When I tasted that I knew we were in for... More

The Cranberry Fried Polenta was amazing, main courses delicious and the lemon ricotta donuts with coffee ice cream ...oh my gosh! We are definitely going to make this... More

What a wonderful surprise -- when my sister-in-law suggested dinner at a B&B, I certainly was not expecting the cuisine that we enjoyed at the Blue Rose! Delicious crab cakes, meaty and fresh; scallops that were so tender and sweet they melted in your mouth; delicious hot, homemade bread and the desserts sounded wonderful as well, but sadly we had...

My wife and I stay in Cape May the first Weekend in December for a winter break every year for the last 16 years. This was the first time to visit the Blue Rose for dinner- the porch setting is wonderful- very romantic setting- we had the corner booth in the back of the restaurant- which they called the Godfather...

My husband and I wanted to spend a Christmas weekend in Cape May, we couldn't find any inns that would accommodate us, until I called the Blue Rose, how happy I was that no one had rooms! This inn is the most friendliest and the most accommodating inns that we have ever stayed in, and we have stayed in many!!... More
