Nice little place for ice cream and snacks. They have a large selection of ice cream flavors and toppings. Our hot fudge sundaes were very good.

Go for a fast anything any time of the day into the night. Family family, pets...food, ice cream. After your busy day you can go in PJ's no one is judging and have ice cream anything.

I am a full-time resident in Cape May and I've held off writing this review for a few years. This is just an ice cream stand that converted itself with a few tables inside and offers few tables outside for seating. They serve hot dogs hamburgers and the such besides ice cream. Pricing is astronomical! Each year it gets more... More

We came to Dry Dock Resturant as a family of 5 upon recommendation from trip advisor reviews. This place has a great menu of things like burgers,pizza, wraps, sandwiches and ice cream. We each had something different everyone liked what they had very reasonable family friendly prices.

Servers and food no issues! Took 40 minutes from time of order to get one burger. Seems like staff in the back needs help or something.

There's little debate that this place has GREAT ice cream. It's delicious. I've been a loyal customer for years and years - despite the dank interior, I've always come back. I've avoided writing a review because I always felt like the quality of the ice cream was enough to overcome everything else that's terrible about it. But I can no... More

Stopped here for some ice cream. It was very good and tasty. Prices are very reasonable. They also have food like wraps and burgers. Family owned and very friendly staff. A definite place to go when you are in Cape May.

We've passed this place dozens of times over the years but we never ate here. After dinner one night, on the way back to our hotel room, we decided to stop in for ice cream. Despite there being a long line inside waiting for ice cream, we didn't have to wait too long to get waited on. The girls behind... More

We found this by accident and it was a happy surprise. The food was beyond excellent. The service was the same. The establishment seems to be family owned. The owner came out and was genuinely proud of the food and showed concern to make sure that we were pleased. We had the flounder sandwich and it was amazing. The potato... More
