We came here for our 1 year Wedding Anniversary Dinner and were so pleased. This is a small place with a chef that enjoys making his own signature dishes. Appetizer was Peas with Ricotta which was amazing. I had the Lobster Mac & Cheese, which had a blend of 5 different cheeses. My Wife had the Scallops Dish, which again... More

Two years ago this place was outstanding. As a local in Cape May I frequent all of the finer restaurants. Two years ago I would have rated this place as very near the top. They got a new chef last year and a noticeable decline in quality took place. Here we are another year later and another new chef and... More

This was out first time dining here and it was outstanding! Our server Alexandra was pleasant, very pretty and knowledgeable. It's a family run business and it shows! Everyone really cares about the guests experience. The atmosphere is so comfortable and cozy, it's very inviting by the way it's lit. This was by far the best food we have had... More

Practically perfect in every way. Carol and her Island Grill family have created a gracious and delicious experience that will leave you talking for years.

Her staff follow suit impeccably. The... More

I was a guest for the special Farm to Fork Dinner evening... Seven courses of beautifully presented plates, one better than the next! My favorites should be offered on the menu: the roasted pork tenderloin in vanilla-scented blackberries in gastrique with braised rhubarb and almond purée; the freshly picked salad of peas, snow peas, haricot verts with watercress salad with...

Carol and Mike are the perfect hosts! Restaurant is updated and food is still delicious. Young new chef with a special flair for quality, freshness and beautiful presentation. Can't wait to go back next time at the beach.
