Delicious food, very friendly service and relaxed sitting on the patio

We were having dinner with two families. We reserved online and asked to be seated outside as well as for a high chair. Upon arrival, we were welcomed very friendly. And everything was prepared as requested, so we had a very good start. Gina, who was our very friendly waiter took our orders and... read more

We had a reservation gave our name and were asked to wait while the hostess took phone calls and made reservations. When we were finally seated we waited for a while for our waitress when no one came we asked a bus person to give us water. We ordered only entrées and waited for them as long as if we... More

The food was so good at lunch one day, we went back another night for dinner. The service was great, and they were incredibly friendly. I have dietary restrictions, and they were very helpful. Next time I am in Cape May, the Pier House will be the first place I stop.

My mother and I had dinner Sunday the 30th at the Pier House restaurant and every table was full, so reservations are needed. We were welcomed by a friendly hostess and seated immediately. In spite of the quantity of patrons, service was fast. Our waiter Lucas was very attentive and quick to bring everything we asked for. We had a... More

The food is delicious but offering half portions would be not as wasteful. Many items to choose from for breakfast and lunch. We showed our room key and was given a 10% discount.

We stopped at the Pier House for lunch at the end of a long bike tour of Cape May. It was a beautiful day so outdoor dining was a must. My wife and I shared the fresh watermelon and feta cheese salad and the calamari salad. Both were very good (I wish the calamari salad had a bit more calamari... More

The Pier House Restaurant in Cape May is a dining experience to say the least. It is truly a class act from the beauty of the interior to the exceptional service and cuisine. It was our first visit, even though we have been to Cape May many many times. It will not be our last. We were a party of... More

MUST eat here for breakfast when we visit Cape May. Portions are really good but you pay for what you get. Sit inside in the AC or outside on their patio. Either way, you'll get great service and a great breakfast. Haven't been here for other meals yet, but we will someday.

My wife and son had breakfast here 3 days in a row. Service by Ben and the rest of the staff was excellent. I went with the eye opener on all 3 days and it hit the spot every day. Easy walk from our hotel down the street, no wait each time that we got there. Priced accordingly, Just put... More

Pier House has a great menu, excellent service and was close to where I was staying, so I could walk there and back. This is the second time I have enjoyed this restaurant and would definitely recommend it. Seafood is fresh and cooked to order.
