We had a family dinner for eight at the Pier House and everyone enjoyed everything - wines, appetizers, main courses and desserts. We had excellent service from a very professional and pleasant wait staff. In fact, we were so impressed that we returned the next day for a large take-out order of the Greek meatballs to take along to a... More

We went to the Pier House based on TripAdvisor recommendations. Upon entering, there was a large crowd waiting to check in and a lot of chaos behind the hostess's counter. It was loud and a little manic. We were seated quickly and offered menus. It took a while to get our orders taken and the service for the entire meal... More

Lovely setting - a bigger restaurant than some of the intimate B&B based restaurants in Cape May, but they do a great job making it feel intimate. Had excellent seafood - grilled octopus was outstanding, as was the crabmeat and avocado appetizer. Fried flounder was prepared very well with many different sauces. Interesting drinks and extensive wine options. Outdoor seating... More

We have lunch at the Pier House every weekend in the summer. The food is consistently good. We have been there for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and the food is always amazing.

The food at Pier House is absolutely delicious. We had breakfast, lunch and dinner there at least once during our 6 day stay at La Mer. There is something for everyone on their menu. Try the crab cake sandwich for lunch! Breakfast is good and 1 meal can feed a whole family. They will serve you in their dining room,... More

My new favorite restaurant in cape may! Clean, pretty and on ocean drive. The menu has slightly greek inspired offerings and a good wine list, even by the glass. Wait staff are polite professional and efficient. Cannot wait to return!

Food just awful and expensive. Save your money. Tasted badly and thrown in styrofoam box in a way that made eating on the beach even more difficult. Had chicken sandwich, hot dogs and blt wrap. Bring lunch or wait and go somewhere else.

We came here without a reservation and were seated promptly. Food was unique, fresh and delicious. Dinner for 4 with cocktails 2 for each person was $225. Will return.

They first brought out some complimentary champagne for our anniversary (very nice touch). Crab appetizer and chocolate peanut butter dessert and coffee were amazing but the entrees were just ok. The flash fried lobster tail had tasteless batter and made the lobster dry. My filet was just ok. My husband had the shrimp which was tasty but small portion for... More

This place is a hidden gem off the beach away from the CM center. Recommend the rise and shine for breakfast and chicken souvlaki for lunch. Good Greek food in a great foodie shore town. Prices are what one would expect in an upscale shore resort. A must try!
