our favorite restaurant in cape may

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... read more

It was our 20th anniversary and we got lucky to pick this restaurant because they gave us some touching memories! Besides the best lamb I've ever had... Tender and tasty and cooked to perfection...just like in the photos... They had flowers from their garden on our table ( an unpretentious booth) plus a cute figurine of a bride & groom.... More

We were in Cape May to enjoy the beautiful autumn weather over Columbus Day weekend. The town was less crowded than I expected given the fabulous weather. Our first choice restaurant didn't take credit cards. So we opted for Backstreet and I am delighted that we did. Backstreet is a cozy little place in a rather depressing strip mall. Our... More

loved this spot a few years ago- This year went one week and it was excellent- but not as good the next week ( piece of flounder was smaller for same dish, "osso bucco" was more like veal shank pot roast)

Would never know it from the outside but when you get inside and taste the fresh local food it is worth the trip to West Cape May! The Chef is spot on with the menu and with the way the food is cooked!!!!!

We ate dinner there twice this year on our visit to Cape May and it was perfect as usual both nights! I got my favorite dish, the lamb chops both nights as Backstreet is the best place to get them. I've had them other places and always wish they were like the ones at Backstreet so I guess I'll just... More

We are foodies and we're not easy to please. To have all 6 Polish plates clean with no complaints is a feat. Started off with the best bread in the world... Light and fluffy foccacia. The menu was tough - - we wanted one of each. Sinfully decadent soup, perfectly cooked filet and seafood, a lovely veg medley with cranberries,... More

We recently ate at the Backstreet and concluded that the name should not be simply delicious but amazingly delicious. The Chilean Sea Bass is the best that I have ever tasted and my husband thought the lambchops were superb. If only I could duplicate the recipe for the pan fried tomatoes which are delicious, I would be a happy lady.... More

I wrote a review on Backstreet before because it's a wonderful out of the way restaurant in West Cape May. I am writing another one because I have a problem with a review I read recently that, in my opinion, is ridiculous. Maybe the paper clip the reviewer referred to was holding their glasses together! It makes no sense. I've... More
