This was our first visit to Cape May and the Pier House restaurant. We sat outside under the gas lamps and could hear the roar of the ocean waves. We were unable to finish our meals and our waitress gladly wrap everything up for us. The sword fish was delicious and the Olive spread accompanying the bread was very good.... More

Great selection of pancakes, french toast, waffles, other breakfast favorites. Slight Greek panache to the place. Most dishes come in a variety of serving sizes for little ones in the family. 10% discount for guests at the La Mer next door.

I would never go back again.. Paid big bucks for the entree that I could not even get wrapped up. Do not set foot in this place. Very biased on who they give special service too. If you are not Greek or got the profile of being worthy they will not give you the time of day. Avoid these people

Ate here this past Friday night basked on the online reviews. We had a reservation but for some reason were seated in the bar. My partner felt slighted. There was room in the dining room but we didn't speak up. We both had the feta and watermelon salad to start with and it was EXCELLENT. Make sure you try it.... More

Went based on reviews and whole fish on menu. However the only non fried whole fish is the Bronzino. All three of us ordered it and it was delicious. Wish there were more whole grilled options. The meat choices looked good in person as well.

My mom and I ate at the Pier House on Mother's Day and we loved it! Service was wonderful, food was outstanding! I loved the fact that they did not change or limit their regular menu for Mother's Day. We started with a great glass of wine, had a hummus sampler appetizer with pita bread (delicious!) my mom had a... More

Lovely service in this well appointed restaurant by the sea. It is intimate, and has a lovely bar. The menu has a slight Greek twist to it, making it a nice change from the rest of Cape May's restaurants. I had a wonderful kabob with fresh veggies and fish. The service is always very very good!

Had a nice dinner at the restaurant. We didn't realize you needed reservations since we were on vacation and had never been to Cape May before. We walked in at about 6:20pm on a Saturday and they were, fortunately, able to accommodate us. We had an amazing waitress and they food we had was delicious. We did feel that it... More
