We came here for dinner one night with my in laws who have a house in North Wildwood. First we had to wait for a table at 4:15pm even though the restaurant was empty. Once seated, I ordered the baked stuffed shrimp and it really wasn't very good. The stuffing was mostly fillers and also didn't like that there weren't... More

This was recommended to me by a local. It was not downtown Cape May; however, it was not far at all. You can get a good seafood dinner for a lot less money due to its location. Wait staff was very friendly. Food was good. There was also a guy playing the guitar in the bar area. I would go... More

We were there Sat., 6/13. Place was busy but we were seated right away for Party of 2. Waitress friendly and was hustling between her tables. Food was served hot. Quality of food reminded me of being on a buffet. I had stuffed shrimp with green beans and baked potato. Beans were over-cooked, limp. Potato, wrapped in foil, hot and... More

First night on Vacay, headed to Jake's based on convenience and decent reviews...Couldn't have had a more mediocre to poor experience. Service was somewhere between Bleh and Meh...We were a party of four, in a relatively empty restaurant so service should be fairly quick right? Uh wrong. Now let's talk about the reason we gave it 2 cruddy stars. The... More

I tried their crab cakes and they were okay, but with Fish and Fancy down the road why bother? I was thinking of going back to try their Prime Rib, but since then have been eating less meat. And when I am feeling carnivorous we usually go to the Pier House in Cape May. But I enjoyed the atmosphere and... More

The prime rib was cooked to perfection. The owners were so nice. Our server was a nightmare because she was either pleasant or very rude so it ruined the experience. One of the owners apparently told our server to talk to us and she asked us what was wrong. I gave her examples of how she was rude . To... More
