“Charming atmosphere. Excellent meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2014

We picked this restaurant based on a recommendation from my parents. They do offer a price fixed early bird menu. We had to ask for that menu. The restaurant itself has a lot of charm as compared to some of the more beachy restaurants in Cape May. Definitely need to dress up a bit. The menu didn't appeal to our teenagers but the waitress was very accommodating and offered to have the chef make them something else on menu. All of our meals were excellent. We had calamari, deviled eggs, crab cakes, scallops, Creme brûlée. Definitely recommend it

“A must try at Cape May!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

Been going to the cape ~ 10 years...always bypassed it for no real reason.
My wife and I finally tried it this summer. Excellent all around! Good bar...bartenders know how to make a good drink. The food was excellent, some unique dishes, and the service was great.
A little on the pricey side but, it's summer time, the shore and you get what you pay for.
There you're getting the value. We'll be back!

“Eating at the Ebbitt Room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

On a beautiful summer evening in Cape May NJ we walked to the Ebbitt Room from our hotel. The Ebbitt Room is located in the Virginia hotel on Jackson street in the heart of Cape May. A beautiful well maintained Victorian creates a wonderful atmosphere for dining. We made reservations which I highly recommend during the busy summer season. Seated at a table right under the portraits of Mr. And Mrs. Ebbitt we were served wonderful, melt in your mouth rolls. I had a fresh tomato salad with roasted blueberries and my husband had a very nice salad. We both had the scallops which were good but not excellent. The service was good on a very busy night. We enjoyed the atmosphere , the meal and the service. Parking can be difficult but it is a pleasant walk and steps away from the outdoor mall.

“Always wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

We've been to the Ebbitt Room many times and we're never disappointed. The cocktails, atmosphere, food and service are all excellent! Everything on the menu is delicious, but DO NOT MISS the calamari!!!!! It's the BEST!
