My husband and Imstopped in to have a drink at the bar to discuss where to go for dinner. We ended up enjoying the bartender Helen, the atmosphere and clientele so much we decided to look at the dinner menu. Ended up having a wonderful meal sitting at the bar: Raw Oysters, tuna steak and lobster salad - everything was fantastic. So glad we stayed.

“Fine Dining”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

We thought this was the best bar in Cape May. Even when not dining here we stopped in for a drink. The bartender is very accommodating - makes an excellent pomegranate martini. This is a fine dining restaurant. A little pricey but worth it. Food and presentation were excellent. A large group was seated in another room during our meal which apparently delayed our being served - though we had not even noticed a delay - and the waitress comped our drinks. The next night we went to a different restaurant for dinner - only for variety - but stopped here first to enjoy a drink and the ambiance.

“Wonderful meal”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

I can only give this visit an average rating because with an 8:30 pm reservation we waited 40 mins plus to be seated. Otherwise our waitress was delightful, our food was delicious and the atmosphere was wonderful. The Christmas decorations were really beautiful, so if you are inclined to visit Cape May during the holidays, be sure to drop by The Virginia and try the Ebbitt Room if you're not in a hurry.

“Elegant dining at the Shore”
Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

We had our 40th Anniversary dinner party at the Ebbitt . There were 10 of us for dinner. We were in a private dining room with private service. We had a great time and the food as usual was fantastic for us all!

“Excellent Choice”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

There are so many fine restaurants in Cape May it is difficult to choose during a short trip. However, we were quite pleased with the decision to try The Ebbitt Room. The atmosphere and Christmas decorations were beautiful. Our dinners were all superb and the the service was outstanding. We enjoyed the freshness, presentation and preparation of the beet salad, flounder and filet. My sister said the butternut squash soup was the best she had ever eaten. We look forward to eating there again next trip it was so memorable.
