“Best prime rib I have had in a long time!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Everyone at my table ordered prime rib. It was cooked to perfection and the sides were delicious as well. The service was excellent! We had wine at the bar for Happy Hour, so this was a very reasonable meal.

“Great sunset dining and happy hour”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

We visit Hemingway's somewhat regularly and find the service to be great and the food pretty consistently excellent. We tend to visit for the early dining specials and must say they are a real value with everything from beautifully prepared salmon to perfectly cooked steak and fresh, yummy seafood pasta.

Hemingway's offers as part of the early dining special an 8 oz. filet which my spouse to be and I have often enjoyed. The potatoes vary from fries to garlic mash--artery cloyingly good--to roasted red and the vegetable of the day is just that. I find the veg to have too much butter, but my honey loves it that way. Dessert is usually a bread pudding--very tasty but certainly not light!

At happy hour, at least off season, the bar area has free noshes. It may be mussels, pasta, vegetables, you never know, but always good and sometimes superb.

But what makes Hemingway's special is the people. A special shout out to Christian at the bar who always welcomes us to Donna, waitress par excellence, who serves with a smile, quick wit and helpful suggestions. You have to give hemingways a try.

“Donna rocks!”
Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

We have been fans of Hemingway's for a number of years. We have a beach home nearby and come yearround. Hemingway's is the most consistent resturant. The food both seafood and steaks are always perfectly cooked and the service is hands down the best in CM. If Donna has a table open we go with her as she is one of the nicest and friendliest of the waitstaff. The specials are also fantastic! This is the go to place in CM

“Our waitress”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Ok when we come to Cape May we always eat at the same places. This time we ate at the Grand Hotel. We ate outside by a beautiful pool . This review isn't so much about the hotel , it's about our bartender Iris , she's warm kind and very friendly. She makes you feel right at home. Can't wait to go back again. Funny how we just happen to be walking by. Would have never thought to stop there .

“Accommodating staff, good food”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

As compared to other restaurants we went to in cape may, the service here was superior. Our waitress was Donna, and she was both professional and extremely friendly. She provided the specials and was knowledgeable about the dishes the restaurant had to offer. My boyfriend and I shared the portobello mushroom stuffed with crabmeat for an appetizer, this was very tasty. He had flounder stuffed with crabmeat, which he enjoyed. I had the grilled salmon with green beans and roasted potatoes. The salmon was good, but nothing spectacular. The roasted red potatoes were ridiculously good though, and I never even eat potatoes.
