My mom and I had such a wonderful meal at Pier House. Delish! We were not too concerned about price, but when we got the bill I was amazed at the value considering the quality. We each had a starter salad, crab cake entrees, and decadent desserts, plus non-alcoholic drinks, and the tab came to 87 bucks before tip. Our... More

My sister and I visit LaMer yearly and we were pleasantly surprised to have such an outstanding waiter anticipating our every need from refreshing water and coffee to doggie bagging our goodies so seamlessly. His warm greeting and cheerfulness from the heart made us enjoy our favorite breakfast selections so much more. What fun to have someone so knowledgable about... More

After hearing many great recommendations from friends we decided to try this restaurant. Upon the arrival the hostess offered us a booth in the bar area stating that the crowd there at the moment would soon be seated and it would be a much quieter seat verses the dining room. O.K.? It looked like a nice spot, good view, in... More

My husband and I dined here on Friday. It was not bad - just average. The bread was by far the highlight. It is served with Olive oil and hummus and it was outstanding. We ordered a salad and the potato leek and crab soup. The salad as good; the soup was pretty blah. It had three pieces of crab... More

We are at the Pier House Restaurant several time. We found the food excellent. The wait staff were all very polite and professional. The portions were large and the food was great.

My favorite thing is the octopus app, followed by the lollipop lamb chops. they are genuinely interested in your dining experience.

My husband and I have been going to Cape May for several years but never went to the Pier House until this year. We stopped for lunch and liked it so much we went back for dinner. The service was great and the food even better. I highly recommend you give it a try. Good Greek food.

We have been in that restaurant few times, now, while on vacation and it is still good and tasty food. The lamb schank is very tender and full of flavor. The portions are big. Their soup of the day is a pleasant surprise served in covered bowls, to keep it warm and even hot. The service is friendly and yet... More

One of our new favorite places. It was packed, and we didn't have a reservation. The hostess was very nice and our wait was not long. We had the potato leek soup and grilled octopus for appetizers. They were both amazing and highly recommended. For dinner my wife had lobster tail and I had the surf and turf. The tails... More
