We always enjoyed this place, but our most recent visit 2 weeks ago we did not see them open at all. Apparently they could not keep up with the times as they needed a lot of updating. The food was always very good but the...More

Our family of 8 had dinner here one night on vacation. Food was good. Everyone had something different and there was no complaints. Service was good. Atmosphere was average.

Friendly staff and good food with very affordable prices. Lots of choices. Price is 2/3 of what you'd pay downtown Cape May. Rest rooms were not very clean and soap dispensers were not operational

This place is great for breakfast. They have the standard options. What's nice is it is near the bridge going into and out of Cape May, and not right in Cape May. This way it's not too crowded. Sometimes you'll see fisherman hanging out which...More

If you are looking for a great place for breakfast, check out Captain's Cove in Cape May. It is a little Sea Side restaurant with great atmosphere. I kind of felt like I was in the movie "The Perfect Storm" Fisherman in and out. Anyway,...More
