The food and service was so good we had breakfast there three mornings in a row! Each time we were seated by a window with a beautiful view. Very convenient parking especially for Cape May.

We had dinner here tonight and were pleasantly surprised. The Manhattan clam chowder was chock full of clams and vegetables. I had a fried grouper sandwich which was fresh and delicious.

I was only in town for 1 night and had lunch and dinner from the Oceanview. For lunch I had a delicious open-faced reuben sandwich that came with french fries for somewhere around $9.

Decent breakfast ... not as good as Bella Vida in West CM, but better than Uncle Bill's. Large portions, friendly staff. I think a lot of tourists miss this place, it's further down Beach Avenue, not as visible as Uncle Bill's or Dock Mike's, but the food is just as good (or better) and the prices are lower, I think....

Been going to Cape May for years, no idea why we haven't tried Ocean View. Went for breakfast & only sorry we weren't able to go back for dinner. The staff is so friendly & welcoming. Standard fare with some healthier options. Look forward to going back.

Ocean View is our favorite place for any meal, breakfast , lunch, or dinner. It is a diner atmosphere with a nice variety of menu items that are full portions and doesn't leave you broke. When in doubt or indecision, we go there. The quality of food is good, the staff are friendly. No complaints.

Very good breakfast - it was a busy December Sunday morning and a lot of restaurants are closed in the winter months. Not only was this one open it was packed! Didn't wait long and had a very good breakfast even with a large crowd.
