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

We had lunch at the Pier House restaurant located in our hotel, La Mer, upon arrival. We were left saying it would be one of those meals we would remember. The food quality, seasoning, and service were all perfect - so we returned for brunch the next day & were equally pleased. We'll be back for dinner one day!

We just visited this place this past Friday evening. The hostess was really nice and friendly, really liked her. Our waitress was good, but not very friendly, considering she is in the service industry I would think she would be a little more personable, but she wasn't bad. The drinks were awesome and our meals were excellent! I would recommend.

Friends and I ate dinner and two breakfasts here at the modestly located but completely wonderful Pier House Restaurant in Cape May. One of the best meals any of us had ever had in a restaurant and we all had something different at each meal. Terrific flavor, delightful and genuinely helpful service, fair prices for the quality. Cannot say enough... More

We went here based on all the reviews on Tripadvisor. We had a reservation, showed up a little earlier than expected and they sat us immediately. The waitress was really nice. We ordered salads to share and she had them split for us in the kitchen. Definitely share, each portion after being split was more than enough. Entrees ordered were... More
