Many interesting choices, all fresh and nicely presented. Service is friendly and quick. If you are there in December the gingerbread pancakes are awesome.

Stopped by for brunch to celebrate a family member's birthday. Saw Jersey tomatoes featured on the menu. Had to have a simple sandwich but, hey, added sliced avocado. We also ordered a classic BLT to take advantage of the locally sourced bacon from the Blue...More

The entire town is just so cute. Such a perfect beach town. We came to the Blue Pig based on Trip Advisor recommendations. Cute place with really good food. Enjoyed the locally grown zucchini fritters as an appetizer and we had a good family friendly...More

Dropped in for breakfast before hitting the beach. I highly recommend ordering the tomato biscuit! The scallion biscuit was scrumptious. You truly get a whole tomato. I devoured it. Hubby enjoyed the original bloody mary but not the jalapeño tequila one. Patio is very nice.

We had excellent food and adequate service but the atmosphere was a bit chaotic. Also, the waitress declined to ask if we wanted our leftovers wrapped, which we did.

This is a very nice hotel. The Blue Pig Tavern is their restaurant. I've been here a handful of times and I always get the "Eggs Blackstone". Excellent eggs Benedict. The English muffin they use has to be coated in some sort of sugar, it...More

The Blue Pig Tavern serves American cuisine-nostalgic, simple and fresh. Executive Chef Jeremy Einhorn has implemented a delicious farm-to-table menu featuring fresh produce, herbs and eggs from our very own Beach Plum Farm, located less than 2 miles from the restaurant! In the warmer months, dine on our wonderful, secluded patio. In the cooler months, cozy up to our magnificent dining room fireplace. The Blue Pig Tavern drives its name from a gambling parlor sited at Congress Hall in the mid 1800's. Earlier still, in the 1700s, Elias Hughes operated a tavern for whalers on this site. It was the first tavern in Cape May.
