Just follow the line that you might be in, given the season and time of day. Since we were there in September/Oct, there was no wait. The waffles, the pancakes, the french toast, its all soooo good. If you ever drove by and wondered why there was a line to get in, its the food! We also got to eat on the outside deck, another big plus for this restaurant. Late risers, this is open for you and your breakfast.

We remember going to Dock Mike's when it was near the Lobster House. We LOVED their pancakes. A few years ago we noticed that they were no longer there and we were disappointed. Then this weekend while attending the Lima Bean festival, we noticed that Dock Mike's had not closed down, but had moved to West Cape May. We were really excited and planned to go to breakfast the next day. What a disappointment! The pancakes were heavy and doughy. We had eaten at Uncle Bill's the day before and those pancakes were awesome!The service was very nice and efficient. The decor was very cute. I noticed that other people were choosing eggs and French toast, so maybe the word is out. Unfortunately, none of use chose any of the other options, so I can't speak to them. It was crowded, so either the other meals are good, or the other people haven't been to Bills!

Food came out hot and reasonably quick. Just nothing special about 3 buttermilk pancakes, two links of sausage and coffee for 12 bucks and change. For the most part a trend in Cape May but there are a couple hidden gems that are more fairly priced. As for taste I prefer Bills but there prices are pretty high as well.

During the week we stayed in Cape May we went to Dock Mike's twice. Both the food and service are great. Gets crowded so go early and cash only with a convenient ATM machine by the front door.

Breakfast at Dock Mike's entering Cape May has been a 20+ year tradition for us. We always enjoyed it when it was next to Utsch's Marina and though I'm more happy with its new location (easier to walk to) than my husband (lacks that seaside atmosphere), we both still enjoy the food. For me, a vegan, having a restaurant in Cape May offer soy milk for my morning coffee is a real plus. And they offer some healthy dishes/juices along with the usual diet-busting mouth-watering pancake/waffle fare. Yes, we love Uncle Bill's too, but we're true to Dock Mike's. Clean, with friendly and prompt service and typical Cape May prices, it's a great pick for families and everyone else.
