Fire up your Google Maps or Waze before you come here for dinner. The restaurant is marginally charming and small. The attraction here is a great menu and a... More

We went to the Backstreet based on reviews and the menu since we were in the mood for fresh fish. We weren't disappointed. The jerk grouper had a nice sweet jerk flavor, not overly spicy or hot, on a nice bed of this mashed sweet potato. The pan fried fish turned out to be local sea bass. Very light seasoned... More

As the name suggests it is in a nondescript strip mall but the menu is exciting and the food excellent. Reasonably priced and fast friendly service. Desserts and fish superb!

The best gem in CM! A must eat there. It is the best of Cape May. Love it!!! The food is something you find at a five star place. The deserts are not to be missed. Home made bread pudding and beach cobbler is the best I've ever had! Go and enjoy! Love it!

This is not your microgreens and flavored foam kind of place. This is real food, prepared with skill and care. The daily fish special is one of the best bargains on the island. The menu is large and fresh, mostly seafood, all delicious. The baby lambchops are my husband's favorite. The desserts are made to order, and are worth saving... More

All three of us loved our meals. The menu is creative, the service is great, and the food was prepared perfectly. The cheddar panko-encrusted grouper was served on top of mashed potatoes and it was cooked just right--not overdone. We loved that the menu had many seafood choices. The braised brussels sprout appetizer was beautiful. We will be dining here... More
