First off, don't confuse this place with the REAL fish market at the Lobster House as many reviewers have. It is a night and day difference. Ordered a flounder sandwich and chicken wrap, they were ok nothing to write home about at 15.00 each. Best part was sitting on the patio and watching the people go by, still better selections...

A bit dark inside, but nice and cool in the hot weather. The food was unexpectedly very good for a place in the middle of the pedestrian mall. Service was great. Cold seafood plate was particularly good, but we really enjoyed everything.

This comfortable restaurant should be better than it is. We have gone back every year since it opened, but after a recent dinner, we've decided it's too hit or miss. On our last visit, we went with six people. And while the staff was friendly enough, the service was poor (waitress forgot several appetizers, apologized and then brought them a... More

We decided to eat here while walking through the area. Since it was only the two of us we were seated right away. Since it was early @5pm, there was no wait but shorlty thereafter the crowd came and others had to wait to be seated. The food was tasty and fresh, the clam chowder was delicious but should have...

We both got tuna fish sandwiches for lunch. It came with a small bag of potato chips. Would of been better if they made their own. It was just OK. Not good enough for us to return for dinner.

Although the restaurant was very busy, our service was outstanding! The lobster roll, blackened scallops and stuffed flounder were absolutely delicious! The menu had a wonderful variety that would accommodate any palate including steak lovers. The New York strip steak was cooked to perfection! Overall this was a great experience and would be highly recommended for an enjoyable night out!

We had a great dinner at this restaurant our first evening in Cape May. The stuffed shrimp with crabmeat was delicious and the shrimp scampi over linguine was good too. The staff was friendly and we would go there again.

Went here two weeks ago while on our family vacation. We had eaten here a couple of years earlier and were excited to go back. Unfortunately this time it was very disappointing. The stuffed shrimp were overcooked and like rubber and the scallops were just as bad. Filet Mignon was also overcooked and lacked flavor. I expected much better and... More
