The service, location and decor are nice but the odor was unpleasant, by the window. Too many flies, later started to expire in the window. Avgo Lemono soup was inedible. Everything else was just passable. The bread, olive oil and olive hummus were the best part of the meal. Sticker shock when the drinks are $4-6 more than other restaurants... More

We ate there last week while in Cape May for the first time. We choose it because they had lamb shank on the menu and that is one of my husbands favorites! the atmosphere is very nice with white tablecloths etc, but yet not too fussy! Great service. I had the watermelon and feta salad, pricey for a salad but... More

This place is not affiliated with Le Mer, though it appears to be and is on its grounds (I think). It would do much bigger and better business if it were affiliated b/c then you'd be able to put food on your tab -- no need for wallet or cash. Same goes with beach service draw back. Now, about what... More

We've been here several times for dinner (great seafood and yummy Mediterranean items. Pier House is consistently good. This visit we stopped for breakfast on our way to the beach. It was a treat to be at Pier House during the day with the sun and sky visible across the way. (Usually is dark when we eat here!). Outdoor seating... More

We came for dinner, breakfast and lunch during our time at the Le Mer. All good experiences. Octopus is great. Fish is fresh with fresh vegetables. Nice desserts. Huge pancakes, so get one instead of what comes with meal. Bacon is thick cut and very good. Big Greek salad and grilled cheese for lunch. Good for kids.. Enjoy!

This is a casual upscale restaurant. Both the New York strip steak and the crab cakes were delicious. Service was average. Although located across the street from the ocean, the restaurant does not have a view of the water.

Fresh food, accommodated picky eaters. Seafood, chicken and salads were all great. Server went above and beyond to meet our special requests of leaving items off a sandwich. All food was cooked just right and fresh. We ordered at restaurant but other reviewers said you can eat at pool or beach.

Have been here now for lunch and breakfast. Excellent. The staff is extremely pleasant and service is fast. Only issue--when you enter, you are greeted by a stinky, un-food like odor. Smells like cleanser mixed with something decaying. The staff is probably oblivious to this. But get past this--its really worth a visit!

We had the yogurt parfait for breakfast and it was excellent-not too sweet and filling. Lunch was served to us on the beach and arrived at appropriate temperature.
