My family, boyfriend, and I frequent this spot whenever we visit Wildwood and Cape May. While there are three eating areas on fisherman's wharf (indoor restaurant, indoor takeout, and outdoor takeout), we have found the best place for atmosphere of a true seaside town to be eating from the outside raw bar and sitting out on the deck next to the large fishing boats. Great atmosphere and fresh seafood.

Over the years I have been to this restaurant many, many times. In recent years I have noticed a decline in quality and service, while prices there continue to rise. It's just not what it used to be...I don't think I'll be going there again for awhile...they need to revamp.

The Lobster House in Cape May is the source of the freshest seafood in Cape May. commerical fishing boats bring in their catches and the fish go straight to the kitchens. We love eating outside in the very casual atmosphere. You fight for a table on the docks, order and wait for your orders to be ready. You can dine inside in a lovely restaurant where the food is delicious, well-prepared and served and the choices are many. You can have cocktails and appetizers on the schooner docked next to the pier but we like the challenge of the dock. Choices are good, prices are low and the experience is just plain fun. We go there at least twice each week we are in Cape May.Check out their website.

great eatery. The stationary boat is great. The food is great too. Especially the oysters. I am Dairy and Gluten free and they accommodated me.
