It doesn't look like much but they have the best Fried Scallops anywhere!! When the mood hits for fried scallops, there's no place else that I go

It's right nest the docks of the sport fishing boats and party boats. The clam shell road adds to the charm and this bar has not changes into lifetime.

Down and dirty, good and casual for just plain relaxing. The best scallops in town, right off the boat, along with the patrons. Fried, or broiled with the best brown sauce. Outside deck for dining or leisure. Fair prices.

I was 16 and you could get served there. Then a fight broke out and you know, those bar stools DONT break like they do in the movies. Fast forward 30 years. Yep still same place. Live long.

This is not your typical place in Cape May. It.is off the beaten path. No menus, cash only. Very limited selection and only a few tables very dimmly lit. But the freshest and best scallops I ever had. Served totally no frills. If you don't...More

We agree 100% with the first review except for one point. Clammers only go out for 24 hours at a time. Scallopers are out for a week at a time.........and do frequent Mayers. Maybe that's why they have the BEST fried scallops in Jersey. Seriously,...More

It's easy to find cheery Victorian restaurants in Cape May. It's a lot harder to find a dimly lit, vaguely threatening bar, the kind of place where fishermen come after three weeks on a clam boat. Mayers is the place to go when you want...More
