“Best in Cape May”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Fantastic dining experience. Food was fabulous...we had seafood starter and short rib and strip steak for main which was cooked perfectly. Atmosphere on porch or inside was very nice and attentive service. One of the best meals. On the pricey side buy byob made it reasonable and worth it

“Great meal”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Returned to this restaurant again and it was just as good as I remembered. Good american food, great service. Pricey, but most of the fine dining restaurants in Cape May are comparable price wise. I got what I paid for.

“Great Food with Great Service”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

I typically lower my food expectations when eating at the Jersey Shore, but Union Park surprised me. My wife and I have eaten there a couple of times now, and the food is consistently excellent. This past weekend, my wife and I ordered the lobster tail, and I have to say that it was absolutely THE BEST lobster tail I've ever had. Excellent preparation, very tasty and the most tender lobster I've had. This is a BYOB so make sure you bring a great bottle of wine to go with the excellent food.

“A Very NIce Dining Experience Awaits”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Overall, it was a very good dinner, but the appetizer of deviled eggs four ways missed the mark. At $12 for 4 halves or 2 eggs, it should have been outstanding. The South African Lobster Tail and Hanger Steak were right on target as was the triple chocolate cake.. Patio seating provides a lovely view of the ocean and the service was very good. It is also a BYOB, which we welcome. It was a very enjoyable evening.

“Lovely beach view with fine dining”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Good, well-prepared food with a competent wait-staff and lovely views of the ocean made our visit worthwhile. The only negative was the whining child at the next table but that was not under the staff's control. I would definitely recommend this fine-dining experience in Cape May, NJ,
