“Adult ambiance and cuisine”
Reviewed September 8, 2011

Excellent service, upscale atmosphere with above average food. The tapas are excellent
offerings, generous portions except for the octopus. The salads are large and fresh.
The bread and it's companion spread is excellent. the drinks are generous.
Advance reservations give you a booth.

“Interesting, Creative, Delicious”
Reviewed September 6, 2011

We had several meals at the Pier House while on vacation recently in Cape May, and the creativity of the menu was outstanding. Very Greek undertone for lunch and dinner menu, but Mediterranean prep was awesome. First you are served bread with home made calamata spread. yum. The lobster is not the cold water variety; rather, it is imported from Brazil and is much sweeter. The flash fry /panko method used in many of its preparations was light and interesting. But the piece d'resistence is the scored and flash-fried panko crusted whole local baby flounder. Nothing like eating the catch of the day prepped by an outstanding creative and original chef. Bravo! Breakfasts are huge, delightful and discounts are given to guests from Le Mer. Service was excellent.

“Lunch with a view”
Reviewed August 31, 2011

I tried lunch here with some business associates. My tuna wrap was extremely runny and not tasty. One person had a hamberger and did not have much to say.

“Very Good Fish Dishes”
Reviewed August 27, 2011

Went on A Tuesday night. Made reservations and were seated immediately. Had an excellent martini.
Both of us had a fish dish. Both very good. Enjoyed the side dishes as well. Got a bit noisy,
Very good service. Would return.

“The best overall dining experience I have had!”
Reviewed August 25, 2011

I vacation in Cape May once a year with my family and make sure we go out at least one night for a fine dining experience. This year we chose the Pier House. From our first greating to the refill on our finishing cup of coffee, the entire evening was filled with pleasure. We had the good fortune to be able to dine outside on their patio. The tables are space far apart so you do not feel as though you are dining with your nieghbors. The service was excellent without being pushy and the food was amazing. The presentations were amazing and the taste was exceptional. My teenage daughter even gave it a rave! We truly look forward to our return. We may not wait a year this tme to do so!
