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!

Had an outstanding breakfast here. So glad they are open during the worst part of the winter. Excellent food, huge portions, courteous and efficient service and nice atmosphere.

We really enjoyed our meal at the Pier House. Greek inspired food, the Mad Greek Salad has a delicious hunk of Feta Cheese on top that is awesome. I had the Crab Cakes (all lump, no shells with a panko crust). Excellent.

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
