My husband and I ate dinner here on the porch on a fine June evening. The setting is lovely, and I highly recommend requesting porch seating. We started with a salad that was dry and oddly tasteless. I realized that they had put a small...More

Our family went for easter. The food was subpar. Service was ok. Tough to find the server. If you like small fancy portions at a high price, perfect place for you. Otherwise better places to visit in cape may. The dessert was our favorite course.
