Great for sunset and drinks

Waited about an hour in the evening, but was there for the sunset. They have a great drink menu. The food menu is okay, nothing spectacular. The onion rings are great, but this time they came out cold. Lots of locals and weekend beach house owners visit here. Great place for fun casual evening... read more

We were here with a big group for a 60th birthday party. The location is great, right next to the beach on the Delaware Bay side of Cape May. Staff was friendly and attentive. Food was good; pretty standard shore food with emphasis on seafood.

We got there about 5:00PM for drinks, then appetizers, then drinks, then dinner... then drinks. The deck is a great location to watch the sunset. The waiter was great. He didn't mind us sitting there for several hours before it got dark out and we moved inside. We had burgers for dinner, which were pretty good for a beach restaurant.... More

The day was a lttle windy but the bright sunshine and the new see thru awnings were nice. The service was fast and the food was really good. We sat for about two hours and enjoyed the views and the owner sat at our table for a few minutes and really made us feel welcome. Not a huge menu but... More

We had only stopped for some drinks and snacks last weekend, when they opened for this season. Seated immediately. Creamy crab chowder was better than most I have had in a restaurant. Lots of flavor, not like a flowered potato soup as most are. Wings and medium sauce were just right. Tried a new appetizer they are offering, 3 crab... More

The only thing this place has going for it is that where it is you get to see the sunset. Food isn't that good, Cape May prices. The drinks are always in plastic cups.

Excellent food and location. But would not have known about this spot if not for a friend who lives in Wildwood. Need more advertising.

Had always wanted to try this place, especially with the proximity to the evening sunset watching. Friday night was hopping with a 40 minute wait for a table. Upon being seated we ordered drinks (great!) and the ordered a burger, fish sandwich and the ribs. Also got the obligatory onion rings which you order by the half or whole foot!... More
