Dinner with our extended family was very enjoyable. Cold platter was fresh and delicious, our meals were reasonably priced and very good. Our waitress was enthusiastic about the menu and offered suggestions and also as a Cape May resident she offered input as to other things a to do in the area. A pleasant place to eat and relax.

I was really looking forward to visiting this eatery, as I love fish. I found the fare average at best. The oysters were fresh, however the presentation of the meals were nothing special. The staff didn't have any drive to help or make the meal memorable.

My family and I had an early dinner here. I had a broiled crab taco which was good. It only came with a small bag of chips. Fries were considered a extra side. I didn't care at all for the service. We were not attended to for about 15 min and different restaurant staff kept passing us by. Then finally... More

Maybe I just don't appreciate raw seafood, but I did not like the clams or oysters at all. My main course was okay, but the price was outrageous. The waitress was very pleasant.

Great food and great service, given the high volume of tourists who dine here. The portions are large, too. The Caesar salad with crab meat was too much for one person. Add an appetizer of fried clams, and there's no way to finish the generous portions. So if you're got a big appetite, this is the perfect place.

We went for dinner one night after a suggestion by the owner of the hotel we stayed at. We had the broiled seafood platter and it was wonderful and fresh! The crabcake was huge and delightful. The shrimps were huge as well. We were very happy that we took her advice. I would dine here again when in town.

We had their lobster rolls twice within a week because they were so great the first time! Outdoor seating is a nice option.
