Overall, we had another great dinner; the service was attentive and the food was delicious! Here are some random notes on this restaurant: -Cuisine: Greek/Mediterranean -Bar Service: Yes... More

I was in town for the birding festival and wanted to find a nice restaurant for my last night in town. I did an internet search and found that the Pier House was close to my hotel so gave it a try...wonderful! Very friendly and attentive staff. Instead of the usual bread and butter thing it was Greek style olive... More

I visited there as a local and host to friends. Everyone was impressed with the service and quality of the food. They were from New York and could not imagine we had come so well established as a good food place.

We had a poor experience at the Pier House with friends two years ago, but we decided to give it a second try. In a nut shell, the service was poor, the entree was cold and the night we were their, we both felt rushed to finish our meals so they could turn a table. There are better restaurants in... More

Our first time to this restaurant and everything was excellent! From the greeting from the hostess, to our wonderful waiter (his name is on the tip of my tongue, but can't seem to remember it, but he was great!). The service was excellent and we even received complimentary glasses of champagne because if was our 32nd wedding anniversary. The drinks,... More

We had breakfast over the weekend at the Pier House. Many of the breakfast dishes were had a Greek culinary flair. I would have to say, the pancakes are huge as well as the waffles. A variety of juices as well and also excellent choice of omelettes and you can make your own omelette as well.

Didn't know what to expect, but The Pier House turned out to be surprisingly good. They had a very full menu with lots of choices plus the evening specials. I had the red snapper which they scored in a criss-cross pattern before adding some batter. When you eat it, theses little squares of delicious fish just pop out with a... More

One of our favorite restaurants in Cape May for breakfast and dinner. Four of us all agree that the coffee at breakfast is a disappointment. We ask a small favor to reconsider their coffee brand. It takes away from what otherwise are great breakfasts.
