We had a wonderful meal here - in fact went back again. The food is made to perfection and the service is excellent. Loved the figs. Loved the duck. Beautiful setting, worth the price.

On the corner of Jefferson and Washington Sts in Cape May, this is truly a dining experience. The service, the food, the people are all 10 stars. I had a 16oz lobster tail, done to perfection and my companion's NY strip was exquisite. The bar is not to be missed. Allow time for a pre-meal cocktail. The whole place is fabulous.......perfect......delicious.........stupendous. You must eat here. You must.

In my opinion, the Washington Inn is inarguably one of the two best restaurants in Cape May. Going to Cape May for a week for 25 years, I so look forward to dinner at the Washington Inn. Chef Mimi runs a kitchen which makes classy dishes. I especially enjoy their crab cakes, different steaks dishes, lamb chops, and delightful desserts. The service is excellent.

Recent visit pre-theater. So we had a 530 reservation.
Selected since Always consistently good food! One of the best in all Cape May but was peculiar in that the Resturarant was empty st that time and servers were standing around waiting for their dinner guests to arrive! There are 5(?) dining rooms yet everyone who did come in was seated in one straight row! Table after table! The rest of our dining room empty! So close that we could hear each other's conversations and the table behind us started talking to us!

Dinner for 2 was over $150 and had they started filling up quickly- then ok! But when we left at 7:15- it was still less that 1/2 filled so why not give people a little more space and privacy when the space is available !

My husband totally enjoyed his dinner and appetizer selections - & his fish was wonderful! and I ordered the Filet Mignon which was tasteless and drowning in wine.
Hubs had the homemade mango cheesecake- delicious and I had the homemade banana-almond dessert with homemade ice cream!

Wait staff is very good ! And attentive, valet parking is available.
