“Interesting food. Should not charge so much for chips!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2007

This is the first time we've been charged almost ten dollars for chips and salsa times two because we asked for more chips! The chips were not warm, but the salsa was good. Our waiter was nice. Our kids really liked the kids' meals here(chicken and cheese burrito). My husband ordered a sun choke chili dish which was interesting and I had enchiladas which were good but not spectacular as they should be for the prices we paid. The presentation was lovely, though. You can bring your own wine to enjoy your meal. We enjoyed the open air eating!

“Great service, good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2007

Gecko's is a pretty good, but average, Southwestern restaurant. The cornbread muffins you get as an appetizer are delicious. The cheese enchiladas weren't great, but they weren't awful either. They were kind of greasy & the enchilada sauce tasted a bit like pizza sauce. However, anything with lots of cheese in it, on the whole, can't be too bad. On a positive note, we had a wonderful waitress, very bubbly & attentive. Also, we enjoyed the outside dining area.

“great food and friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2007

We love to eat at gecko's when we come to Cape May.
Our experience has always been great. We always get chips and salsa as well as a great corn bread (complimentary, I remember)
and have always enjoyed our food. The kids always love the children's menu as well.
Don't miss the crab enchiladas! They are fabulous!
We hae never had a bad meal here and never fail to enjoy it.

“Food Great, Service Terrible”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2006

The food was very very good. I had the Trout Cakes and my wfie had the quesadillas. Both were excellent. However the servie was poor. I had to get my own refills and the time to get the check was long. If possible get the food to go and eat it at your room.

“Best key lime taco!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2006

For several years now, we have visited Gecko's for lunch - mostly for their great key lime taco, although the burritos, quesadillas and even barbecue sandwiches are also good. The other desserts sound tempting, but that lime taco is pretty unique and hits the mark!
