Something a little different

I was expecting a casual fish restaurant, but Pier House is a Greek restaurant. It's fairly casual, and not directly on the water, but across the street from the beach. From the name, and from looking at the map, I expected something on the waterfront. Nevertheless, we met friends there the night... read more

Lovely restaurant with romantic atmosphere, good service and the food was very good. We especially enjoyed the meatball and octopus appetizers - though our main dishes were tasty as well. We enjoyed the Greek twist on classy food

Had about a teaspoon full of waste...amazing with a strip steak. It was just super. Great wines by the glass and it was not too loud (my... More

My wife had a birthday so we visited Cape May and dined at the Pier House on Beach Avernue at the northern end of Cape May proper. We were blown away by the food. Absolutely one of the best meals we've had in some time. We enjoy a healthy diet at home and though this was an indulgence, we didn't... More

The Pier House menu has small plates for those of us who want to sample as much as possible; a great Greek soup, and entrees for very hungry people. You will thank me for telling you to start your meal with a bowl of "Avgolemono Soup" -- just enough lemon and a wonderful beginning. And, if you are fond of... More

A gift card via Groupon brought us here for a first-time visit - but it will not be our last. This Mediterranean restaurant was superb in food and service. I had the yogurt-based chicken souvlaki and my wife had a shrimp dish. Both were outstanding. Our service was first-class and friendly. There is relaxing bar area that overlooks the dunes... More

We went here for a few drinks after dinner and it was very nice inside. The staff was friendly and professional. We only stayed for a little bit as it was not a lively place to hang out.
