Nice place for seafood

We ate here on a recent Friday night and really had a nice meal. Our waitress was friendly and attentive and went through the specials....also made some great recommendations which we took her up on. The mini-cornbread app with honey was really good. My wife had the sea bass and I had the sea... read more

I had the sea scallops that were caramelized and also cooked to perfection. The vegetable were grilled artichokes, grilled radishes, special beans. We were told... More

Wine pairing dinner with Turdo winery. Absolutely amazing food and presentation. Think Thomas Keller at French Laundry. The flavors and food choices are unusual but meld in the most unbelievable way. The ricotta gnocchi was the best I've ever had! Just thinking about the lobster tail with braised radicchio and traviso, with a sauce to die for with hazlenut sable... More

I think they want to impress with having locally grown, and that's good - but the entrees just weren't that great. Prices are high for ala carte.

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

The Lobster Mac & Cheese was excellent, lots of lobster! But 3 out of our party of 5 had the fish & chips- very... 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
