Fabulous Food & Cool Cocktails in a casual pub atmosphere!

Reviewed By kazu79 - New York City, New York

So we heard this was the spot. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Satisfactory it was nothing really to complain about and noting out of Theo world special. Prices are reasonable. Drinks were good. Service was great. Will return of back in the area. The ambience and or atmosphere not really the establishments fault but has a very loud setting. Def pack a lot of people into a smaller establishment but it was beyond the loudest places I have ever been to. So during busy hours it will not be a peaceful experience. But maybe it’s only me.

Westside Market

A must visit.
Our family has shopped here for over 28 years. Convenient and courteous.
Always remembers our family, even by name, when we shop. Their fresh chicken and meat is cut to order. Their filets are to die for and their subs are great size and very filling.

Chill

I love to go here after a couple hours on the beach to relax and enjoy the atmosphere. I always get a crepe and recently I tried the Pina Colada smoothie, which is definitely the best smoothie in the Cape May area. Chill inspired me to start making crepes at home!

After two decades of visiting Cape May, we discovered a new winner in the residential haven of Cape Mat Point. As you drive in, you may be surprised to find a restaurant among the sweet homes leading toward the lighthouse. Inside is a general store, hinting at years gone by, and a small interior space and an outdoor patio where brunch is served. I believe they also do lunch and dinner on select days. The choices were a tad limited for vegetarians I suspect, but the options were creative and delicious. There was a great Latino offering with rice and beans, plaintains and eggs. My basic ham and cheese omelet was overflowing with precisely cut pieces of ham. And the bread basket case with a croissant, cinnamon bun and a multigrain bread. The price is a tad steep so this would not be an everyday choice, but a choice you should make when you want to treat yourself.

It is everything you might want and expect in a great diner. Simple and tasty food from varied menu. Fast - really fast - and friendly service. Excellent prices ( especially compared to eateries along the shore). Diner atmosphere with a nice aviation theme - it is at an airport. We’ll be back for sure.

We had the 3 course pref-fix menu celebrating St. Patricks days. The food was absolutely stunning both visually and taste. We loved everything. Service was exceptional, I'd say world class. Fast, professional, always available without being over bearing. This is BYOB for wine/beer. We bought a nice bottle of wine that was $20 in the store, it would have been 65-100 with the standard wine markups most restaurants use so we enjoyed good wine at a great price, and NO Corkage fees either. There is a good reason this restaurant is the #1 spot in Cape May - it earned it and you will not be disappointed.

Wow, if you like peanut butter cookies, cake, spreads, etc., you've GOT to visit this place. The prices aren't cheap, but that's because it's all quality stuff.
