Had a get together with family on the Schooner just to do appetizers and everyone wanted to eat dinner. So went to the front desk and not a problem seated us upstairs almost right away because being in the middle of summer thinking almost impossible. Sevice was wonderful will give a 5 star and the atmosphere another 5 Star!

Terrible! I have been here before and it was great but this time was terrible. I ordered lobster. It was all mushy and watery. Tasted horrible. Long wait. Our waiter was very nice but I will not be going here again. Over $100 for a dinner that I couldn't eat. We did finish our drinks and we had appetizers

My husband and I love to dine at The Lobster House on a dark winter's eve. We enjoy our lobster dinner in the softly lit dining room as we take in the view of sparkling waters under a clear starlit sky. A very different but lovely vibe worth enjoying.

My wife and I had the pleasure of stopping for lunch at the Lobster house on Friday, 12/9/16. We were very pleased with the excellent service and the quality of the food. I especially enjoyed the snapper soup while my wife enjoyed the clam chowder. we make sure that we visit The Lobster House every time we in Cape May.

Amazing food and service! Husband loves the lump crab cocktail and every other seafood dish on the menu. I'm not a fish lover but I have to say I had one of the best chicken francaise dinners ever. Look forward to every visit to Cape May!

We always visit The Lobster House every September while vacationing in Wildwood Crest and always have had excellent food and drinks at reasonable prices. The waitresses are very friendly and efficient. Lovely Views of the water! Always very busy so be prepared to wait. It is well worth the wait!! Looking forward to our next visit!

Love the atmosphere of this old stand by. Had an adult dinner with family members. Service was top notch. I believe our servers name was Jeanmarie. There when we needed her . . Flounder Francais was the best I have had. The sauce is incredible! Cod special was good too according to two of the family members. Cocktails are well... More

This was the best meal i have had in a long time. Shrimp and scallops in white wine sauce with linguine was the special of the day. The sauce was light and delicious, the shrimp were cooked perfectly, and the scallops were like candy, so sweet and perfectly cooked as well. Reasonably priced, and the service was impeccable.
