Visited the Blue Pig over a very hot weekend. Usually we had very good food, and also good service, at this little restaurant. Not so this time. We were seated in the main room, and the AC really was not as strong as we would have liked it (it was in the 90s outside). Our server came quickly, before we... More

We went to Blue Pig Tavern on a Saturday as a special early Mother's Day brunch. We made a reservation ahead of time, and specifically requested to sit in the window-enclosed patio area. The staff was great to accommodate our request and they were very professional and classy. The monte-cristo is delicious!

An annual ritual for my family. Sit outside for breakfast before it gets hot. Great service, great coffee, fresh, local ingredients. Spotted Oprah there a few years ago!

We had a nice early meal here with our kids. The food is good; the service was a bit slow especially since we came early and there were few other customers. The prices seem a bit high, but everything is expensive in Cape May.

Very poor service, uneven quality of food. In a tourist destination at an upscale venue, we expected more.

The lovely outdoors patio (which feels like a private garden) is pet friendly, which was very important to us. We had a wonderful server on both of the nights we were there, Josh, super-fresh food, and a wonderful atmosphere. Would definitely recommend & will go back on future trips.

My family and I have joked that we could eat here every night of the vacation. Easily the best place in Cape May! I'd recommend this place to anyone!

I have eaten at the Blue Pig Tavern three times. This last time, the service was off. Granted it was a busy night, but it took 1.5 hours to get our entrees. I ordered two drinks and would have ordered a third had someone come by to check on us to pass the time. The food is decently priced considering... More

Description
The Blue Pig Tavern serves American cuisine-nostalgic, simple and fresh. Executive Chef Jeremy Einhorn has implemented a delicious farm-to-table menu featuring fresh produce, herbs and eggs from our very own Beach Plum Farm, located less than 2 miles from the restaurant! In the warmer months, dine on our wonderful, secluded patio. In the cooler months, cozy up to our magnificent dining room fireplace. The Blue Pig Tavern drives its name from a gambling parlor sited at Congress Hall in the mid 1800's. Earlier still, in the 1700s, Elias Hughes operated a tavern for whalers on this site. It was the first tavern in Cape May.
