“Worth every penny!”....that’s what my husband says whenever he spends money and enjoys every aspect of the experience. This slogan applies to The Pier House every time we eat there. A contemporary seafood restaurant, The Pier House is located beachfront at the north end of Beach Drive just in front of The Genteel La Mar Hotel. They are open year... More

My husband and I recently had dinner at the Pier House. We had the salmon and sea bass. Both dishes were fantastic. Truly a pleasurable dining experience. Our server was very attentive as well. Would highly recommend!

Pier house was one of our favorites in Cape May until Valentines Day. The ladies ordered crab cakes (2) but only ate one saying they were not very good. My wife took hers home and I heated it up. It was terrible. I opened it and there were only four or five FLAKES of crab and the rest was filler.... More

My husband and I have been vacationing in Cape May for the past 15 years, and we have tried many of the restaurants in the town. We have found that, overall, most restaurants are fantastic, so the Pier House has some stiff competition. It holds its own! We visited Pier House in March -- off-season -- so there was no... More

February 21st was my first time having dinner at the Pier House Restaurant following a previous positive breakfast experience a few years back. We decided to try it for dinner as we were staying at La Mer (hotel "attached" to the restaurant) and the inviting menu. Though on the pricey side, you certainly get what you pay for. I'm a... More

This is perhaps our favorite restaurant in Cape May. The food is always excellent and we love the terrace in the warm weather. It is not located in the noisy downtown.

Food and service are outstanding. The grilled octopus appetizer is my favorite, it also comes with a shot of ouzo. Try the whole flash fried fish. Bombay martini and a great wine list.In the spring you can enjoy outside dining while listening to the ocean. Wonderful!
