My husband and I went in for a night cap. What a pleasant surprise. The piano Player Paul was just wonderful. I did not have dinner there just cocktails but there were lots of people waiting for dinner ..

We go here usually for special occasions as it is pricy , but in the past, worth it The atmosphere is lovely We waited about 20 minutes past our reservation time Service was good I had lobster bisque which was honestly the worst I've ever had The lobster fritter in it was tasty but the soup had absolutely no flavor...

The Ebbitt Room on the night we visited was packed with every table taken as well as a very lively bar scene adjacent to the dining area. The din, that is noise, was, depending on one's point of view, deafening or exuberant. That said, my bride and I had a wonderful evening and look forward to coming back again and... More

Came to Cape May once again to check out wedding venue. Stopped here for dinner after a long day. Restaurant crowded on this Friday night. Parking is a little tricky but available if you look. Found parking and ended up eating in side room off the main bar. Comfortable and warm. Staff was friendly. Maria was our server and she... More

We really enjoyed the Ebbitt Room. I had the farm fresh salad that was perfect. I also had the flat iron steak which was also perfect. Our server was Alice and she was great. My husband had the calamari and salmon which he said was very good So if you are in Cape May and want a good dinner try... More

went here with friends and we were all very disappointed. The food was sub-par and the atmosphere less than awful. The wait staff seemed to be in a hurry and the traffic in the room made sitting uncomfortable even after asking them to slow down - the food was not seasoned properly and you can take this to the bank...

Hi Greg P, I am so, so sorry to hear that you and your friends did not enjoy your experience here at the Ebbitt Room. While our restaurant is located close to the bar and lounge area and certainly has a lively atmosphere, there is no reason that our service staff should have made you feel hurried. I'm very sorry...

Odd menu name but the filet was tasty and tender and the crab cake was all backfin chunks. The cocktail lounge was comfortable and well appointed and our server was helpful, pleasant and attentive as were the parking attendants.

We had a reservation on a very busy Friday evening in January. We were a bit early so we waited at the bar. There was a lively crowd waiting for tables but with good drinks and good conversation nobody minded waiting. We ordered "rabbit stuffed radishes" and Oysters Rockefeller for appetizers. They were some of the best Oysters Rockefeller I've... More

We have been visiting Cape May for 8 years and ate at several restaurants, never at the Ebbitt Room, not sure why. This by far is at the top of our list. The service was excellent, our waiter was Jeremy. Our dinner was amazing, my husband ordered cake and steak, I ordered the scallops with grilled carrots. I highly recommend... More

Had a wonderful meal here. Staying in Cape May for the weekend and this was our first stop on Friday night. Loved the price fix menu and choices. The flat iron steak was awesome and the calamari was amazing. We'll be back!
