Excellent food, ambiance and service.

We ate at a high top around the bar and the food and ambiance were both excellent. The bartender was very friendly and she kindly took our picture.

They were so good we stayed for more appetizers and drinks after the tour ended. All of the appetizers we sampled (the tacos, fried oyster sliders and the flatbread) were... More

Are reviewers trusting what their taste buds are telling them? Or do they just want to vote along with the majority? Went here with my family. All of us found our meals dissatisfying; even my two year old who gave her "it's sour" face after tasting their pasta off the kids menu. The waiter was too professional and a bit... More

This was the last stop on our Cape May Food Tour and the offerings were so luscious we decided to stay and have dinner. Lovely atmosphere, great drinks and comfortable setting for couples and family groups.

Would've given 5 stars if our meal had come a little quicker... Otherwise, a great experience. Very good food and friendly, accommodating service. Would definitely visit again.

The service is great and the food is served fast and fresh. Our favorite waitress is Joann. She is so friendly, hospitable,and accommodating.... More

I have eaten here many times over the years and never actually reviewed the restaurant. I highly recommend this restaurant. Food and Service is consistently good. Price is very reasonable for the area. I recommend the Filet Mignon with crab meat entree.

We had a reservation for two at 7:00 on a Wednesday, and were seared immediately. The decor is pleasant with a nautical theme. Our server was friendly and helpful, as well as attentive. I had the House Special -- half a lobster stuffed with crab and a sirloin steak. The lobster was deliciously sweet, and the steak was done to... More
