“High quality menu and service”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

On our last trip to Cape May we had lunch one day and appetizers and drinks another at Pier House. On this trip we had the pleasure of 2 dinners at Pier House - one with a group of 6 adults and 5 children and one with just our immediate family of 5 (2 adults, 3 children). There is quality throughout the menu including cold apps, hot apps and entrees. There is enough on the children's menu to please most picky eaters. The service is professional and knowledgeable. The Greek specialties are amazing and highly recommended. Only word of caution would be that the portions are substantial (not a bad thing) so you might want to share your appetizer if you plan to do apps and entrees. We will visit Pier House on every return trip.

“Was better 2 years ago”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

Went to Pier House for the 2nd time - first time was 2 years ago, when my husband and I ate at the bar. I'm not sure why, but the last experience was much better. First off the bar atmosphere is much more lively, in my opinion, and the bartender was very friendly to talk to. This time around the bar was still fun, but we sat in the main dining area - nice but nothing spectacular. We ordered the Crab Martini which was just OK (actually the one at M'Ocean is much better and has huge lumps of crabmeat in comparison). I had the flash fried lobster tail and filet mignon entree and my husband ordered the tuna steak with rice. They were both good but in my opinion, underseasoned and a tad pedestrian.

“Yummy Mediterranean!”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

We had lunch outside - big family with lots of kids!
Food is yummy - try the chicken kabobs! the pita was a bit oily (olive oil) but the whole dish was delicious!
Kids got their kid meals and were happy.
Portions are big, service is very good, dessert is worth trying also!

“Our new Cape May favorite”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

This is our new favorite in Cape May. We had an excellent meal here and it looked the other diners did also. The food presentation was beautiful and the service was excellent. Others may complain that there was too much time between courses, but since the portions were large, we liked having the extra digestion time. We walked (someone at our B&B said it was 2500 steps) and glad we did. We started with the spicy seared scallops and octopus appetizers which were delicious. The NY strip steak was one of the best steaks I have had in some time - it was even good cold the next day on the beach. The swordfish skaros was also excellent. There was a large party next to us and we got to see their food as well - everything was beautifully presented and portions were large. The wine list had bottles at all price points from $ 36 to $400 with most of the bottles under $ 75. We ate inside (there was a chance of rain) but there is an outside patio with heaters for when it is breezy. We will be back!!

“The Pier House ”
Reviewed July 30, 2014 via mobile

This restaurant is located on Beach Ave a beach front restaurant serving breakfast lunch and dinner
We ordered feta & watermelon salad which comes with Honey walnuts, arugula greens and fresh feta cheese. On the side you get watermelon juice to drink. Additional we ordered octopus which the presentation was really pretty and tasty. NY strip steak "dirty steak" was tender and juicy. Waitress pleasant and attentive. We were seated in a booth near the bar which was noisy but in overall good experience. Casual dress code no bikini or barefoot which may be difficult to some coming right from the beach.
