We have been to this restaurant many times over the years when visiting Cape May in the summer. Always had a great meal. This year we made reservations for New Year’s Eve dinner since we would be in Cape May for the holiday. As usual, the service was exceptional and the food amazing. I highly recommend the Chilean Sea Bass.... More

The first time we were here, our waitress was named "Happiness", and that made us feel welcome! The food was great, the service excellent, and the outside entertainment was an excellent addition on a summer day in Cape May!

My husband and I have been long time diners at The Pier House. We love the Greek influence of the food. Our favorite dishes are the grilled octopus with a shot of ouzo and the whole fish entrée . We also enjoy sampling small plates and salads while sitting in a booth in the bar. Service is great, atmosphere upbeat,... More

Enjoyed a nice meal @ the Pier House while celebrating my wife's birthday weekend. Good food, service, and very reasonably priced. A little trip from the center of town, but well worth the trip.

We recently stopped in for drinks at the bar with the intent to leave and go to Washington Inn. Jason, the bartender, was just great and recommended we take at look at the menu at this restaurant and stay for dinner. We were glad we did, we had a great meal, each something different and all enjoyed. Our choices were... More

We ate here in August of 2014 during our summer vacation in Cape May NJ and thoroughly enjoyed the experience! The food was excellent, and the menu was different, with some unusual choices. One of these was the fried lobster tail, which was paired with a filet, for The Pier House's version of Surf &Turf. Both the fried lobster and... More

We were staying at the La Mer Hotel and the Pier House Restaurant is located on the grounds next to their pool. We decided to have breakfast there on our last day and enjoyed a good meal. The breakfast menu is what you would expect except they serve artisan breads which is a nice treat. My wife and I each... More

My mom and I had such a wonderful meal at Pier House. Delish! We were not too concerned about price, but when we got the bill I was amazed at the value considering the quality. We each had a starter salad, crab cake entrees, and decadent desserts, plus non-alcoholic drinks, and the tab came to 87 bucks before tip. Our... More
