Great food, good prices. A little place hidden on "a back street " I had the steak, it was delicious, make sure you get the cobbler ! My friends had the fish, they loved it.

We stopped at this little strip mall restaurant based on reviews. It was really good. My daughter and I had the pan seared sea bass. It was perfectly prepared with a lovely lemon and caper pan sauce. My husband had the jerk grouper and liked it as well.

Friends of ours took us to dinner there for the first time a few weeks ago, and we enjoyed it, so we took our kids there Labor Day weekend. Everyone enjoyed their meals,and the service was very attentive. Don't know that I would do the cobbler dessert again, it was a bit dry, but, everything else was very good.

This was a one of the best meals! Everyone in our party of 7 finished everything on their plate. The tomato appetizer was amazing. I had the Chilean sea bass and it was cooked perfect with such great flavor. Make sure you order the peach cobbler made to order and is so worth the wait. We will all be back... More

Food was delicious and service was great. All dinners came out at the same time and the portions were just right. It's obvious owners Tony and Teresa love what they do. Backstreet Cafe Simply Delicious a best bet if you are in Cape May, NJ.

I think they only open for breakfast on weekends during the summer, but I'll comment anyway. Don't be late! We just got into town and were driving around looking for breakfast. It was getting late, but we found this place. I should make my rating higher than it is, since the omelet was really done well (not brown, like a... More

We were on a quick one day stopover in Cape May and looked around in the afternoon for a place to eat. After not getting reservations at a few places, or finding places that didn't take them and had lines, we happened on a piece about Backstreet. It was BYOB, but we had a bottle of wine in the room...

Hadn't been in since the simple renovations which make the experience just a little more private and tidy. The food remains the same, delicious, abundant and can't forget to order the fruit cobbler for dessert.

Backstreet is a small restaurant hidden in a semi industrial location. You'd never find it just by driving around. The place is small and cramped with only about 10 - 12 tables. We made a reservation for 7:00 which they couldn't find upon our arrival so they gave us someone else's. Upon being seated, we noticed that both my and... More

Had dinner here with new friends and, as always, it was excellent. Scallops, crab and tomatoes for appetizers from the specials menu were all perfect. Fresh local flounder impressed our friends, local tackle shop owners. Lamb chops....divine! We were almost too full for dessert but couldn't resist another delicious course and are so glad we indulged.
