I would highly recommend The Blue Rose Inn and Restaurant. The entire staff was very courteous and made you feel "at home". The breakfast was outstanding with several choices of entrees to choose from. Justin and the entire crew did a GREAT job.

This is one of our favorite Cape May restaurants, and my husband and I usually reserve it for a special occasion or our last night in town. I noticed that the kitchen crew was skimpy with the calamari in my husband's favorite salad--he thinks it's the best calamari served in Cape May. (At $14 for a salad, they could have... More

If you a looking for a little quieter spot for dinner in Cape May, this is it. Lovely old inn, quaint dining rooms, very good food. We were there for a birthday celebration, and though we waited a few minutes for our table, we ended up having an entire room all to ourselves even in busy season. Food was very... More

Any of the people that wrote anything negative about this place must be grumpy old people nit-picking and trying really hard to find something negative to say. My boyfriend and I stayed here this past weekend and I am immensely impressed. The inn-keepers work round the clock to make sure that every detail in exactly right. We stayed in the... More
