We had a large party -10 people and I think they became a bit flustered. Our table was sitting there empty, and it took quite a while for them to clear it and set the table. The Crabby Mac and Cheese was a big hit....More

In this location, Carney's needs to serve only adequate food. It is a great location and the server did a great job. All in all it was a good experience....but I have had better ribs. It does represent a decent value; especially for Cape May.

We were there pre-season in May and the early bird special was better than we expected....Excellent and a great value. I had the ribs and they were enough for 2 meals. That always makes me happy.
