“My favorite restaurant”
Reviewed 2 April 2012

Washington Inn is our favorite restaurant for many reasons (including the outstanding food and drinks). We just ate there for our anniversary, and we are in Cape May every summer so we make sure to have a reservation then as well. We always end up sitting in a different section of the "house" and love it. Be sure to make reservations, then show up 30 min early to enjoy a drink in the bar with Marty. He is the best bartender and fun to chat with and watch. We always ask to sit in Godfrey's section, he has been our waiter there for 5 or 6 years in a row. He won't steer you wrong if you are trying to pick between appys or entree specials. The food is just outstanding, the veggies are fresh and cooked perfectly. Go and enjoy a fabulous evening.

“Lovely meal, great service”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

We had a delicious meal and were seated in the Wine Cellar, which was really a nice atmosphere. The waiter, Evan--I think, was outstanding. And a great wine list. We'll be back!

“Delightful time at the Bar!”
Reviewed 19 March 2012

With an attentive and knowledgeable bartender, excellent wine list and fabulous food, we spent a few hours at the bar having a casual "fine dining" experience! Would definitely go back again on the next trip to Cape May.
