We had fun celebrating our Feb birthdays there. Great food, warm welcoming staff. It was relaxing, tension free dinning. My steak was done perfectly and hubby groaned and hummed while eating his seafood mixture.

Celebrated Valentine’s Day here. I have been coming to the Jersey Shore for about 70 years and was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. The prime rib special was excellent and very generous. My husband was equally happy with his filet mignon. Service was very good...More

We went for a buffet on Christmas Day. The food was good, the staff were very friendly, and it was a nice time. Nothing too fancy, but that's what we were expecting.

Okay, a dumb reference to Ernest Hemingway, but since this is known for its seafood, and he wrote Old Man and the Sea, I couldn't resist. Anyway, there are plenty of wonderful restaurants in the Cape May area, and i now count this as one...More

Adequate food. Nothing special. It is liken to eating in an oversized dinner without much of any decor/table coverings to add warmth for an enjoyable holiday meal. Don't expect them to offer ground pepper to your meal.
