Do not be fooled by the word "Inn" included in the name of the restruarant, it is a locals bar. Tables are close together and the place is shabby and the feel on not being clean. Service is not great. It is inexpensive for the NJ Shore. We went there on a chicken wings special night and the wings were... More

You know what a business thinks of its customers by the condition of its bathrooms. No locks, out of order urinal, flies, graffiti, possibly cleaned in the last 48 hours--not a pretty picture. It would have been worse if I were female, I'm sure. Good wings, though. Just hope they don't go through you too fast!

Must visit here if you go to Cape May. Seems like a place where the locals go. Great specials and prices.

Our ample, open-faced Reuben sandwiches with fries were scrumptious. The flounder wrap was prepared to please and the garden salad with scallops and shrimp was amazing. Our waitress was extremely helpful. Not fancy, but we'd head back to this place in a NY minute!

In late April my wife and I visited C-View for what was likely the last time, since we were moving out of the area. We have visited C-View many time over the years and always enjoyed it. It's a real neighborhood place, but during the season it's also very popular with people who own summer homes. Even during the off-season... More

Took a pleasure trip to Cape May, and had to go back to C-View for the scallops...this time we added the grilled shrimp appetizer, in buffalo sauce...wonderful! The house wine once again was as good as any you would wish for, (at a normally beer and booze bar)...Service was not the greatest, but they were exceptionally busy and we didn't... More

The food is great. If they could only learn how to make a good Cosmo, it would be perfect. Toooo heavy on the cranberry 😓 Even when we told them, it still came back too sweet.

Off the beach front but well worth it. Not fancy, but oh so good! The food anything from sandwiches to entrees. We always visit The C-View. If you want a good meal at a good price, The C-View is the place to go!!

Looking for a local hideaway? This is it. Fantastic local bar with plenty of draft choices and great daily specials. Nothing fancy just good food and great times.
