Wow, was the food good here!! We stayed at the adjoining hotel La Mer and this was so convenient and the food was fantastic. Very friendly bar staff, so friendly we started and ended every night there! The food was unique and innovative, with great Greek flair. This is a must stop in Cape May!

We travel to Cape May almost every year. We love the restaurant scene, and this year we tried the Pier House on our first night. The service was exceptional! This is something we did not receive at any restaurant during the rest of the week. We dined on the patio and it was a perfect setting. The food was truly... More

The food was amazing. You have to try the mango French toast; probably the best I've ever had. Large portions and reasonable prices. My only complaint were the seagulls. We sat outside and they were quite aggressive. We had to cover our food to keep them away.

We tried this restaurant because of their Mediterranean focus and had no trouble getting a table for two on a midweek evening. Their décor is pleasant and the dining room was not crowded nor noisy while we were there. The menu and wine list were good and we chose a Greek wine from the Peloponnese, at $28. It was pleasant...

the food here is so fresh and beautifully prepared with the best service- great seafood- the wait staff really know the meals offered. It is the best place in Cape May by far! A little pricey but its worth it for the superior menu and service.

This restaurant does not disappoint from beginning to end! The atmosphere, service and food is impeccable! We are frequent Cape May visitors as well as vacationers and we like to try new restaurants to eat at each visit. There are soooooo many outstanding restaurants in this small seaside town, but this has definitely moved to the top of the list!... More

We chose to eat here because we were staying at the hotel it is attached to. Reservations for dinner are necessary to get in because of this, so keep it in mind when planning. The interior is bright, unique and has a nice calming atmosphere. There is outdoor patio seating available as well. The menu offers greek twists on each... More

We had a family dinner for eight at the Pier House and everyone enjoyed everything - wines, appetizers, main courses and desserts. We had excellent service from a very professional and pleasant wait staff. In fact, we were so impressed that we returned the next day for a large take-out order of the Greek meatballs to take along to a... More

We went to the Pier House based on TripAdvisor recommendations. Upon entering, there was a large crowd waiting to check in and a lot of chaos behind the hostess's counter. It was loud and a little manic. We were seated quickly and offered menus. It took a while to get our orders taken and the service for the entire meal... More

Lovely setting - a bigger restaurant than some of the intimate B&B based restaurants in Cape May, but they do a great job making it feel intimate. Had excellent seafood - grilled octopus was outstanding, as was the crabmeat and avocado appetizer. Fried flounder was prepared very well with many different sauces. Interesting drinks and extensive wine options. Outdoor seating... More
