Very Nice BYOB but a limited menu

The food was definitely good and very fresh. The service was excellent as well. I know small, limited menus are the new wave but this restaurant needed to have a few more choices on the menu. The Lobster Mac & Cheese was excellent, lots of lobster! But 3 out of our party of 5 had the fish & chips... read more

We recently had our wedding reversal dinner at the Island Grill and it worked out great. We had contacted and visited several restaurants in Cape May and some of them didn't even call us back when we started enquires. Carol at the Island Grill could not have been more helpful and kept in touch via email as we planned the... More

There are so many great restaurants in Cape May, but I go back to Island Grill more than any other. The menu changes enough to keep things interesting. Service is always excellent. It is byob, but if you didn't bring a bottle from home, you can pop next door and pick from the nice selection at Collier's. This trip I... More

Had our wedding luncheon here and let me just saying dealing with Carol for a year was amazing. My Italian family loved the food! Kelsey and Steven were so attentive and amazing with attending to our needs. This is the place we will always come to when we come to Cape May. This place is truly a gem! Thank you... More

Especially when i had to change my litte guy after being on the hot beach during the wedding. everything was fantastic and i think the extra attention and service they provided really made her even more happy and special.

Sorry...but I was disappointed with the change to this restaurant. Each summer my husband and I have dined here and this year we called and made a reservation. When we arrived, gone was the "island" theme and menu! That is the name of the place, right? We were told that the new chef changed the menu which now only contains... More

Although menu is limited, food is spectacular. We had an heirloom tomato salad - farm fresh and delish, the scallops - excellent, and the branzino whole fish, also excellent. It's BYOB so that's clearly another plus. Make a reservation and enjoy delicious farm fresh vegetables and daily catch. (There are meat choices as well)

Around mid August on vacation in cape may we decided to visit this locale. I had the crab cake & my son, who is from NY, had the scallops. The food was really good and a surprise because mostly in this town I have found by experience the food not worth bragging about, with the prices being way too high.... More

I have been to this restaurant every year for at least the past eight years. This year is, hands down, the best yet. I also venture to say that this is the best meal that I have ever had in Cape May. (And I've been to all of the big-name staples.) The chef does an outstanding job to showcase the... More
