I must agree with a previous reviewer who commented on the too-casual dress code of the Merion Inn. It's common to see people dining in jeans here, and that might not bother me if I was at Applebee's or Fridays, but not in what is supposed to be a fine dining restaurant. I believe Cape May in general has dropped the ball in this regard. They bill their restaurants as "casual chic," but I ask you, what's chic about jeans and a t-shirt? If you're going to allow jeans, then drop your prices and your pretensions.
The service is far from professional. I've had better service in diners. The servers are not unfriendly, but they haven't been taught how to serve.
Overall, the Merion Inn is below-average and not worth the money.
