Six of us stopped in for lunch. It is a small-ish restaurant with booths and tables for 2 or 4. There is also outdoor seating. There is one booth that fit the 6 of us. This is a byo as well. But they do have a few wines that must be purchased by the bottle. They were reasonably priced. We... More

Every time I visit Cape May with my wife and friends, the Cape May Fish Market is always our farewell meal. This is a cool place to eat lunch or dinner with wide selection of seafood dishes to choose from. My favorite is Lobster Mac n cheese!! Cooked perfectly, priced right and a boat load of lobster. Very tasty!

The best lobster roll in Cape May. Served on a nice bun with warm butter to pour on to it. You can share it if you are not that hungry but if you are, go for it.

After being displaced from our OBX vacation due to hurricane Matthew we came to Cape May. First time had the 6 shrimp appetizer. Shrimp were so big and so delicious! Also had the lobster Mac and cheese, to die for! So good went back again!

Good location right on the mall, decent service, average food. BYOB (except for bottles they sell from a local winery).

Stopped for lunch end of Sept. and ate outside. A little dark inside but lots of decorations for Halloween. We had the broiled flounder and crabmeat melt - both very good. Waitress could have been a little more attentive. Would stop here again.

The Cape May Fish Market is a quaint small restaurant with an outside eating area in front of the restaurant under an awning. The restaurant is located right on the walkway of the Victorian outside shopping mall in the heart of Cape May. The menu is varied with fresh seafood. The crab cakes, scallops, and lobster rolls are excellent. Pure... More

To start out with, after we were seated, I think we may have become invisible....no one came to wait on us. Finally my husband asked a waitress waiting the best able right next to us if she could send our waitress to our table. She left and came right back and said she would wait on us. We ordered Oysters... More
