A couple was celebrating their 50th anniversary. We stopped in for lunch before the beach. It took forever to get a club sandwich and fish tacos, which were good and fresh when we finally got them. Then another long wait to get the check. Get it together, please!

My husband and I have been coming to Cape May for several years. We love the place because of their gourmet restaurants. However, tonight was far from the mark! When we entered the restaurant we were taken to a small corner booth. I asked if we could have the booth next to ours because it had a better view. The... More

We returned to the Wildwood/Cape May area for a family vacation, after years of missing it. Our first night we decided to return to the Pier House to celebrate my son's birthday, since it was one of our best meals ever the last time we were in Cape May. We did not have reservations and it was prime dinner time,... More

We visited the Pier house for the 2nd year in a row and were not disappointed. Amy was our server AGAIN and she is out of this world. This restaurant has a lively fun atmosphere. Drinks are great and the food is even better. I would highly recommend the PH Balance-lightly deep fried lobster and filet...unbelievable!!! Will definitely be back.

My husband and I stood at Le Mer which is adjacent to this restaurant so we had breakfast here in the mornings and it was fantastic. We also had pool and beach side service which was great. If you like burgers, then you need to try the burgers. The best hamburger ever!!! Very friendly servers. We will definitely go back!!

Atmosphere and appearance is good. Dinners are very good but a bit pricey. They provide eats delivered to the beach and your room.

We sat outside on the patio. Very nice setting. Asked the waiter for a suggestion on the fish dishes. He said the sea bass was his favorite. Excellent choice. We ordered Ceasar salads and Greek salads to start. Both very good. Overall a really great meal!

We had the most wonderful breakfast at the Pier House. We chose outdoor seating. The umbrellas were large and adjustable so we didn't have to bake in the sun. The hostess was friendly and we didn't wait at all. Our waiter was friendly and prompt. He was great with my kids and let them order themselves and clarified with them... More

The prices are a little high, but the food is delicious. The watermelon and feta salad was a perfect beach lunch and my husband had the baklava pancakes, which are definitely for people with a sweet tooth. We also had pina coladas before the beach and they were yummy. If you're staying at La Mer don't forget to use your... More

Food is fancy, but very good. Beware of the breakfast. The portions are HUGE!!! I ordered pancakes and they served me 3 the size of frisbees! Make sure you share.
