We started going to this restaurant about 10 years ago and loved the food. They have upgraded the added a porch bar and music. That gives us another reason to go back.

Loved the ambiance of the restaurant as well as the food. Cream of asparagus soup was a great beginning. The crab cakes were delicious, not full of fillers, as some can be. Dessert was rice pudding, just enough to top off the meal.

There are lots of restaurants in the Wildwood and Cape May areas but not many if you're looking for good seafood. That alone makes the trip to Menz worth the drive away from those places (don't worry, it's only ten or fifteen minutes depending on traffic and how fast you drive). The place is quirky- it hasn't changed much in... More

There is only so much time you can spend hoping people continue to patronize your establishment just because of the kitschy decor (which I do enjoy).. Our food was over priced and under whelming. Food presentation was pitiful and quite frankly the taste was no better.. Used to be a fabulous restaurant. What a shame. The only saving grace was... More

Other than GREAT FOOD the restaurant is decorated for Halloween better than Disney. It is worth the trip just to see all the Halloween decorations that they have put up

We spent the weekend at my in-laws for my mother-in-laws birthday. She loves Menz's so off we went. We've had many great meals here over the years and they just seem to always get it right. After cocktails we sat down and ordered, she had the salmon (again) always her favorite. My father-in-law & wife had the crab cakes (awesome)... More

Took our daughter and her husband here for dinner last nite. First should have made reservations, there was a childrens Haunted Dinner going on so it was very crowded. An hour wait is what we were told. We waited and it was worth it. The Crab Soup was awesome, the Bloody Marys awesome as well. Beet salad very good as... More

My family ate at Menz Restaurant for many, many years, and always loved their food. Well, we went back for the first time in 3 years, & will NEVER go again! We ordered deviled crab, which was so small I almost couldn't find it! We had the choice of 2 vegetables, so I ordered Cole slaw & mashed potatoes. The... More
