We have been going to Fitzpatrick's Crest Tavern for many years now and this past year was no exception. We usually stop in early to mid afternoon, have lunch (if early enough) or appetizers and a few beers or wines. The place has a really relaxed feel to it and many people know each other. The Crab cake sandwiches are... More

An island favorite of locals and vacationers alike. Consistently good casual dining. Friendly dining room and also friendly bar. Daily specials and happy hours well loved. Wednesday's pot pie special always very busy. Owner on hand to keep things going great. There is also a small package store and lottery machine. Can't miss at the Crest Tavern. Take out menu... More

Visited the Crest Tavern on a Monday night after Irish Weekend in Wildwood. It was a cool night, so we chose to sit inside rather than in the enscreened patio area. The picks from the menu were all over the place, and all were wonderful. Crabcakes, manhattan clam chowder, red lentil soup with tomato chunks and taco salad. The waitress... More

We have been coming to the Crest for the last 10 years. We go every week all summer long. Friday Happy hours are great. The mussels in white are the best. Have great oysters on the half shell. Love that you can get just a sandwich or a meal. The hot roast beef are great and the awesome chicken is... More

I ate at this restaurant a few years ago when I stayed in Wildwood Crest. I loved the cheese fries so I had to go back when we stayed at Cape May this year. We ate there for lunch on our way home. There is nothing fancy about this place but if you like plain old good food and don't... More

Have been coming to Wildwood for years. Some weeks we dined EVERY night at the Crest Tavern. Usually, very fresh food and well prepare at a very fair price. This year, the furnishings seemed very shabby, almost dirty and in new of upgrading. The service was merely adequate. The menu seems to have fewer entree offerings. We want dinner offerings... More

I've been coming to the crest tavern for probably over 10 years. The food is always pretty consistent. I don't go there for a fancy meal. I usually will get a burger or my favorite the roast pork sandwich with melted provolone and spinach. A very good size more than filling and tasty get the Au Jus on the side... More
