I have eaten in many delicious restaurants before, but this is probably one of my new favorites. The octopus appetizer melted in my mouth. The salmon was outstanding, my husband had the pork chop and he was overly impressed. .definitely a gem

Try the watermelon and feta salad. Amazing. Brilliant fish and shellfish dishes with fresh ingredients masterfully blended to perfection. Fast, friendly wait staff. The swordfish was amongst the best I've ever eaten.

Food was very good (but $13 for 3 scallops appitizer is ridiculous). When it was ordered, we figured 5-6 scallops. No.."3" of them came out on a little plate. They need to put it on the menu so that people know that it's only 3 scallops for $13. But the Lamb Lollichops were delicious and the tuna appitizer was vgood.... More

Very nice selection of Mediterranean style seafood and meat dishes. Calamari and Octopus apps are very good. Good bar and wine selection and a very pleasant waitstaff with a beautiful ocean view.

Dinner at the Pier House is an excellent end to a great day in Cape May. The chef knows how to deliver great and unusual food. The menu is relatively small so they can focus on quality, and they do. Ask about the flash fried dishes; really great!

We were a little nervous to eat seafood with a "Mediterranean flair" but were PLEASANTLY surprised with how delicious our meal was! The waitstaff was very capable of describing how everything was prepared and the food was presented exactly as described. Would return in the future.

The Pier house is right next door to the hotel we stay at (La Mer) and we tend to skip it because of this unless we are really tired. Nothing wrong with the place, we just like to get away from the area and try other scenery. The Pier house has a dish called flash fried lobster tail that is... More
