We visit the Pier House every time we go to Cape May. We are never disappointed . My husband loves their octopus appetizer and we both love their calamari. We have tried everything from fish to beef to veal and we love it all. We also have a drink at the bar before dinner- bartenders and the drinks are perfect.

The only good thing was the service. Many other restaurants provide more choices and larger portions. Would not return. Have been back to Cape May several times and went to other restaurants for meals.

Our visit was mid-week, off-season so no wait or reservations necessary. The setting was very casual and there was a good staff to customer ratio was good. the food was excellent and they had a good wine selection both local and int'l. would probably come back but not before trying out many of the other great places in the area.

We have been making the Pier House our Sunday breakfast stop in Cape May for the past several years, and we love it. The Pier House is a Greek inspired restaurant, and the breakfast foods are very much like those served in Greek diners. The atmosphere is very casual and relaxed, and the portions of food are huge. Their chocolate... More

Our party of 5 adults had a late dinner at the Pier House. Although the menu wasn't large, and there were no specials, there was a lot of variety to choose from. Many of the dishes had a Greek slant. I chose the Lamb shank which was outstanding. The restaurant was a little loud when we sat down, but as... More

Tried this eatery for breakfast since it was adjacent to where we were staying. Had one of the special omelets, with jumbo lump crab, bacon, spinach, and hollandaise. Sounds great, right? It was terrible---dry, tasteless, overcooked, with just a smidgen of an entirely flavorless hollandaise. Their omelet chef should stick to making toast. Coffee, served in a generous, over-sized mug,... More

We wanted seafood and they had a nice menu. They served a kalamata bread and hummus at the table instead of boring bread and butter. It was amazing! We ordered an ahi tuna dish and a whole flash seared red snapper. I did feel a little under dressed in jeans. More upscale than I expected but prices were very good.... More

My wife and I had a very nice dinner here. She had the Chicken Souvlaki, I had Chicken and Pasta ( paccheri pasta, chicken, chick peas, andouille sausage, spinach, tomato basil cream, kasseri .) We topped of the meal with a Triple Mousse Dome ( creamy, chocolatey, but not overly sweet ) and coffee ( their cappuccino machine wasn't working,... More

Outstanding and flavorful appetizers and fresh, deliciuos and well executed main courses. Their leak & potatoe cream with crab meat, grilled octopus, blackened tuna were all superb. Bread and olive oil were one of a kind. Ask for Natalya whose dedication and service vocation are a breath of fresh and friendly air. Will definetly come back a d do it... More
