We love this restaurant. Great food, Service, and surroundings. One of the Best inCape May. Love that it is BYOB.

First time to this restaurant, didn't have high expectations but, was cautiously optimistic. Should you judge a book by its cover?! In this case, you can! Outside as inviting as inside. Good service, food, and ambiance. Definitely will return!

This restaurant is for a more expensive occasion. The food is outstanding, the service is excellent and the prices reflect this. If you have the money definitely go here when you were in Cape May. Also fine desserts. Enjoy !!!!

It's been a while since I've found a new restaurant that combined flavorful food, excellent service, and enjoyable ambiance at a such a reasonable cost. My only regret is that we don't live closer to return on a regular basis.

It is a BYOB. I'm not sure if they have a separate room for parties. Give them a call.
