Ate there last Friday evening. Party of four plus a toddler so we went early! We all tried to order something different. And everyone was very pleased. Their steak dish was the absolute winner (kudos to chef Michael) but the other dishes were delicious. The meal started with fresh bread. Dessert again a winner. Will definitely try to get back...

We dined at the Blue Rose after hearing all the glowing reviews. We were a little disappointed. First the good. The hostess & owner are friendly & attentive. The decor was pretty & they offer outside dining on the front porch. It's bring your own wine which is common in Cape May. The food was good and well presented. Now... More

My husband, son and I looked on line for places to eat in Cape May. We selected The Blue Rose Inn for Sunday Brunch our first day. The Inn is a lovely place and the restaurant has out door dining as well as in doors and in an airy screened porch. Our brunch was first rate. My son had the... More

If you'd like to enjoy a delicious meal in a beautiful Victorian home, then try this wonderful restaurant. This is our second visit and we were not disappointed. We took our 12 year old and her friend but be warned that this is not a place for picky eaters or poorly behaved children. Our meals were scallops, beef braised short... More

The cooking here outruns the rest of the experience; decor that is fusty and some weird decisions on presentation (like scallops in a kind of canoe-shaped dish) distract from some of the best cooking in the area. But those scallops, lemony and oceanfresh, make up for a lot. Ditto the calamari salad appetizer and the papardelle with pulled pork. Like... More

Loved this place, it reminded me of Key West. The meal was delicious and ample portions were offered. We sat outside and dined on the porch. The servers were wonderful as was the entire experience. I will be dining there again.

My husband and I tried the restaurant in June based on reviews we read. Honestly I can say it is not worth a trip back. We were able to get a reservation and were seated in the middle dining room against the wall. There were only 2 other tables in there and the acoustics are horrible. We were sat next... More

The food and service here was amazing. By far, our best meal. My husband and I actually wanted to come back the following night, but they didn't have availability.

Based on TA and Phila Inquire reviews we decided to give it a try. We opted for the Early Bird (before 5:30) 3 course for $35. The calamari salad, salmon, and roasted pork were excellent and the portions were the same as the regular menu. The lemon ricotta doughnuts with coffee ice cream were a great ending. The staff was...
