where locals go! Stay away from pizza, but for any other bar food (WINGS) a must! Didn't care for a local IPA server replaced it no questions asked!

Touted as one of the older eateries in Cape May, the C-View has your typical restaurant/bar Fare, most of it reasonably priced and a large assortment of appetizers for a nice post-Movie or post-Theatre/Play snack. There's often a Catch-of-the-Day special, usually from local Fishermen. On-site parking spaces are at a premium and be careful not to park in a residential... More

Great hometown bar. Made 2 stops this past trip, and both were a good time. Service was pretty good, but like anywhere else you have better servers then others. Fish and chips: ok, but the fish holds to much grease. Burgers: were really good, as were the fries. Wings: nice and crispy, with good size and tastes. Cheese Steaks: the... More

The Giants screwed it up again! Nice people and nice place to see the game. Drinking out of Eagles cans surrounded by Eagle fans. Wadda ya gonna do? It was fun. I wish I didn;t eat first though. I hear they have the best wings in Cape May. I will definitely be back.

Been here a number of times....just writing review now. Wing night is great! Their menu is good. They have entrees and specials. Love the "regular" feel that this place has. We actually spent thanksgiving wknd in Cape May last year and came to the CView for the Eagles game. The bartender, who is actually the owner, was there because he... More

We ordered takeout from C-View twice. The wings and buffalo chicken cheesesteaks were excellent. Only complaint was that the fries were cold. Only took about 15 min for food to be ready.

I was down south jersey for a doctor's visit when my car broke down! I had it towed to the Mobil across from C View so I was lucky on both counts! Service at the restaurant was really great and I had the best waitress ever! Food was amazing and service was perfect! It's a place that I definitely intend... More

Three of us walked in. Clearly a locals bar. The young female servers told us we could not sit at the table for eight. Perhaps we could have separated the three tables to make room for other patrons as well. They told us we had to wait for a smaller table. Wait, what??? Yeah. We left. Not going back. Millennials....

I have been coming here since my grandfather brought me when I was 5 years old. Although the jumbo shrimp sandwiches are gone, the food here is great. They carry a great pub menu along with some dinner specialties. They have daily specials as well. The best part about it is the price...they're on the island but still have mainland... More
