A genuinely fresh look at traditional Greek fare with a nicely landscaped outdoor patio setting across from the beach. The potato leak and crab soup was awesome but could not be topped by the watermelon feta salad! Entrees lamb shank and Bronzino were good sized portions accompanied by flavorful sides. We will definitely be going back!

A lot of the restaurants in Cape May (even the very good ones) seem to have very similar menus. Pier House is different, much more diverse and creative. We had a wide ranges of interesting appetizers from dips to lamb meatballs to octopus. The grilled octopus was one of the best I have ever had. They have a full wine... More

So we went here for my birthday and had a wonderful meal. It is right across the street from the beach. Large indoor restaurant with outdoor seating too. Our waitress was one of the best I've had anywhere. I forget her name, but she was blond/light brown hair with a bar through her ear. We had some frozen drinks that... More

My husband had the surf & turf (i forgot the fancy name) and I had the salmon. My husband was underwhelmed by the flash fried lobster tale but I enjoyed my meal. The $12 margarita was so/so but the service the was great. My only complaint that there isn't a vegetable offered with their children's meals. My daughter had a... More

I had a great drink at the bar while we waited for our table but that was the best part of the experience. I wish we stayed there for dinner. The service in the dining room was not great and the food and atmosphere had a diner feel to it. It was not worth the money. Have a pre-dinner cocktail... More

Busy on a Wednesday night in season. Some service times were taken. We were in the large dining area and it was quite loud but not oppressive. Our food was very good however both of ours were slightly over cooked. My wife had salmon and I had souvlaki. What was outstanding was our service from Karen, always smiling and attentive.... More

My sisters and I stopped in for lunch after a long morning on the beach. A young girl Abbie who I assume was the manager left us waiting for over ten minutes to be seated. She was to worried about her cell phone to even turn around an acknowledge that we were standing there. Once we were seated, she sat... More

If we lived here we would go again and again. The food was fresh and delicious and the staff were very welcoming. It has a real mix of people dining there and nobody was out of place.
