“Easily Missed Unless You Know Where It Is”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

Found this wonderful place on a fluke web search. We had pasta alfredo with chicken and the rack of lamb. The food was plentiful and delicious, so much so we went back the next night for chilean sea bass and grilled salmon. The largest piece of sea bass and salmon, we've ever receive-considering the price and compared to some of the
finest restaurants in the US. If you overlook this place, you've miss a great meal and very friendly service.

“Great beach side spot.”
Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

Excellent service - very patient with our picky eaters. Salads were fresh and plentiful. Hamburger was also a hit. Everytime we have been there we have seen the dolphins playing in the surf - wonderful.

“Great food in a cozy little restaurant”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

If you're looking for a wonderful meal, look no further. This charming little restaurant offers a variety of interesting dishes. We ordered two appetizers- the fried tomatoes and the baked brie and wow, were they delicious! The best thing on the menu though,was their chilean seabass. It was so good that the following evening, my husband wanted to go back so he could enjoy it for dinner again! The food is fresh and flavorful, and the atmosphere is lovely. If you have children, they do have a children's menu. Although I wouldn't recommend this place if your children have a hard time sitting still or are extremely loud. This is a tiny and quiet restaurant. THis is a fine dining experience at a fair price. Go and enjoy!

“Delicious food, restaurant a bit noisy”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

We enjoyed our favorite dinner at Backstreet Simply Delicious. The food choices were interesting and our food was excellent. The ambience is very casual and the tables are closely spaced, so it was very noisy on a Sunday night. It is located in West Cape May, a longer walk away from the area near Congress Hall.

“Interior isn't fancy, but food is wholesome & delicious”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

This place is off the beaten path--but not hard to find (just down the road from the CVS.) Delicious food; the sea bass and the lamb chops melted in our mouths. The side vegetables were yummy, too. If they fix up the interior a bit more they'll have the ambience to pull the whole thing off--though, as it is, we were not put off. This one closes after the season--so go now!
