Lovely room(s), full but not noisy, good jazz in the background, comfortable seating. Friendly and professional staff. Food was sensational. Portions left us enough room to share a dessert. We will definitely return!

Response from Darlene M | Reviewed this property |
It is a BYOB. I'm not sure if they have a separate room for parties. Give them a call.
Planning a 2 day trip to Cape May (first time in about 30 years) for late Oct. Since I don't want to miss the Blue Rose, if you had to choose only 1 meal there, would it be dinner or Sun brunch. If anyone has experience both recently & could help, I would appreciate it. Thank you! Laura
