Had a wonderful meal here. Staying in Cape May for the weekend and this was our first stop on Friday night. Loved the price fix menu and choices. The flat iron steak was awesome and the calamari was amazing. We'll be back!

Holiday dinner, I was disappointed in the following we sat at the table that part of the table was a bench seat that ran the length of the main room. We felt like we were all seated on other groups, it was loud you could barely hear the piano music in the background. It was very dimly lit but I... More

My family spent the Christmas Holiday in Cape May, my sisters and our spouses enjoyed a delicious meal in the Ebbitt Room. The muscles were delicious, and the soup was succulent. Everyone enjoyed their dinner. I would highly recommend dining here.

My husband & I were spending the weekend in Cape May and met our family for dinner at the Ebbitt Room. It was one of the best meals we've had in Cape May. The Charcuterie Board was fantastic! Every entree was cooked to perfection (especially the Steak & Cake!). And the sticky toffee pudding and sweet ricotta doughnuts were a... More

I took my daughter here for her 16th birthday. The food was exceptional. Based on other reviews, I ordered the Charles and Charles merlot which was excellent. We also ordered the deviled eggs appetizer which was outstanding. The toppings change but on the night we were there they came topped with steak, salmon, and crab. Yum! For the main course... More

It has been a while since my husband and I vacationed in Cape May. We used to come to CM every year and jaunted our usual faves, e.g., Washington Inn, Ebbitt Room and Mad Batter. The Ebbitt Room from what we remember is a romantic restaurant, where we can have a nice quiet dinner. Not this time around. We walked... More

Dear KateAlways, Thank you so much for taking the time to share your feedback. Please accept my apologies that the dining room was too loud for you to enjoy your meal. We renovated our bar and lounge a few years back, and have for the most part received positive feedback from our guests following the renovations. However, the location of... More

Not too much to say when there's nothing to complain about! The restaurant was small but never felt cramped. It felt intimate and the menu had so many options that appealed to me that I found myself wanting to return before our entrees even came out. Our waitress was knowledgeable about the area and the menu, service was quick but... More

When we travel to Cape May in the winter, a trip to the bar at the Ebbitt Room is a must. My husband loves their Smoked Maple Manhattans!

Food is great and the bar is fabulous! Although this is a hotel restaurant/bar, most diners come here as a destination.
