Definitely worth a try!

Love this place! Some of the best crab cakes in CM. Nice bar and seating is great. Great salad and the wait staff is terrific!

We ended up in this place as a second choice - but it was definifely a good choice! First, the place was packed on a Sunday night, so we were told there were no seats since we had no reservations. Luckily, we were seated within 5 minutes! Calamari was definitely one of the best we tried, kefteda was ok, our... More

We chose Pier House to celebrate my son's 32nd birthday and ate outside on a lovely warm night overlooking the ocean--easily could imagine it being the Mediterrainian it was a magical evening from the incredibly thoughtful service, provided by Natalia, to the inspired and beautifully presented food! For appetizers, his girlfriend and I split the watermelon and feta cheese salad... More

We dined outdoors here and enjoyed every bite of the fresh, delicious food. It's outdoors from the beach, and we dined on the patio. The grilled octopus appetizer is TO DIE for: tasted like it had been just caught and it was served with a shot of ouzo! Lamb lollichops were meaty, juicy and reasonably priced for the portion size.... More

Pier House treats guests in such a special way, it is a NJ Shore town and everyone dresses somewhat casually, but I felt like I should be wearing a jacket -- and a tie! The decor, the ultra pro service and the outstanding food all combine for a memorable evening. One must not be put off in any way that... More

Good breakfast - large portions and delicious, but $80 is a lot for breakfast for 4. And they don't start service until 8am - the local diners are a better option. Dinner was very good - steak was outstanding and whole fish is a nice option. Not the nicest hostess, and the outdoor seating can get loud and wet. Overall,... More

We visited twice, and both times appetizers were quite good and entrees just OK. There are some Greek dishes and some Greek wines, but not enough to characterize this as "Greek" - I would call it continental cuisine. The outside patio is beautiful. Wait staff were knowledgeable and very helpful. All in all, we would go back.

Greek food well prepared and friendly service. We ate both lunch and dinner here. Outside patio is nice for evening although usually plenty of families with little children sitting out there in early evening.

Very pleasant place to have dinner on our last night in Cape May, the shrimp Saganaki was excellent, we got two orders of the kalamata bread before our meal it was so good, the chocolate martini was amazing! Worth a visit for sure especially if you like seafood.
