Excellent place to eat in Cape May... The fried oysters were outstanding as was the lobster roll and the clam chowder... Definitely worth a visit


My wife and i stopped just before Memorial day and got quick lunch here to go. The staff was helpful and all the food was delicious. I have to add that the that crab cakes were small (it was an app), but incredible! We've not eaten in the restaurant yet, but will be back. Good place, Nice people.

Great Food


Off season they have a $20 lobster dinner, we really enjoyed it

Bruce Confer

Great service and excellent food in a casual atmosphere.

Michael Rood

Had the lobster special. Lobster was fresh and delicious. Nice outside seating.

James Dziarcak

Excellent food, even better service

Edward DeSilva

Was not at all impressed with the market. It was dingy and felt dirty. Very little variety in terms of fresh seafood. Much better places to shop for seafood in Cape May.

Ed Obarowski

No liquor license still after 4 yes of saying we are getting it soon. Booth was filthy. Food was meh, and prices higher than they should be.

Jennifer Russo

Have been visiting Cape May for 13 years. We were a party of 7 and from the onset to the end our experience was excellent. Truly perfection. Every entree was delicious and the right temperature. Our service from Melissa was superior. Huge bonus we we're seated in the haunted booth. One of the best meals we have ever had in CM.

Ralph T.

Great lobster rolls and shrimp rolls.

Sergio Zini

Only good.

Ron Lewin

Everything was really good, especially the lobster rolls and the grill cheese crabcake sandwhich(with american cheese)

Mari Rosario

Great food and service. Ps. ByOB

Nurten Dasdemir

Food is great waitress was great


We eat here everytime we visit Cape May. Had lunch and dinner here today and food was excellent both times. Our server Melissa was extremely friendly and attentive. B.Y.O.B is also nice.

Nathaniel Bechtel

Looked like a nice place with a good menu. However we didn't get to eat there since the hostess told us there was a 20 minute wait and 45 minutes later and almost 5 groups of 7 seated before us later we left annoyed. Only go there if you can be seated immediately.


Over priced and should serve glasses of wine not just bottles

kelly cooke

Very disappointed. Five of we’re excited to enjoy the “lunch special.”When we ordered we were told the restaurant had a busy weekend and were not offering the special today- even though it was advertised on chalkboard on the way into restaurant. We asked for the lobster Mac and cheese in place of the special the waitress and manager indicated this was not possible. We would need to suck it up and pay full price. No accommodations and some sass from the manager. We won’t be back.

Cape May Hotels

Cape May Fish Market is always a sure bet! Fresh food and a very nice ambiance for sure!

Jerry W

Nice place, good food. Patio seating with nice weather.

Melanie Rose Dance Theater

Will definitely not be returning. We thought the quality of the fish would be better than most other places due to the fact it’s a fish market. Sadly we were very mistaken. The clams were bland and dissatisfying. The waitress was sweet but the fish was not worth the money.

Pat Schultz

Waitress was attentive and nice. Ordered fish stuffed with crab with a side of veggies and tomatoes. Tomatoes were without a doubt from a can. The fish was equally bland and was likely frozen before heated and served to me. I recommend trying another place.

Paul Conway

Fresh!! Fresh Fresh!! .. Cold Combo hit the spot!! -- Had some of my wife's Blackened Shrimp Caesar and wish I ordered my own, delicious!!


Best seafood in Cape May and the Burgers are great too, they use the best high quality beef. The staff is Pleasant and accommodating and Paula is wonderful!

Dawn Trone

The lobster mac and cheese is heavenly

Brian Shoudy

Great lobster rolls!!

Raphael Rivas

I enjoyed my meal at this place as well as getting the breeze from outside.

Michael Petersen

Never had a bad experience. Quick service, top notch cuts and seafood.

Toni Delbuono

Excellent food and service!!!

Saehan Lee

this place is og amazing i ordered the fish and chips and it was amazing. the fish was juicy and the fries were so hot. this place is great i am definetlly coming back here

Joe Cunha

Love this place when we go to cape May for the day New England clam chowder soup is the best here

Michael Kern

Been stopping in for years. Lobster roll best there is. Must also try clam chowder.

Billie Alberts

My husband and I had dinner here this past Saturday for the first time. I tried the Fried Oysters and Chicken Salad Platter. The 4 oysters were so moist and fresh it was amazing. The large scoop of chicken salad was very tasty but a little too dry for me. It came with a large scoop of a dryer bland cole slaw and lettuce /tomato garnish. Don had the Coconut Shrimp (6) and a huge absolutely delicious serving of French Fries and a huge side of Applesauce. Our "local" waitress did a great job. We ate outside and enjoyed the entire experience.

dorothy miller

Delicious, definately recommend

James Warrington

Great staff and wonderful food.

C Brown

I have long been in search of the best infamous Lobster Roll. My journey has ended. Nothing but sweet succulent lobster meat spilling out of the most buttery soft it's all about the bread style bun. Only to receive clarified butter to dip this delicious delight into after not being able to take your eyes off of the lobster meat. I thought I had truly died and went to lobster heaven. Anyone saying that this lobster roll is not the best in Cape May needs their head examined. Oh, and the seasoned Old Bay fries? A delicious accompaniment. Can't wait to return.

Thomas J Sabia

Nice family atmosphere with great food and service

Judi Lassiter-Williams

The waitress was wonderful, but the food was completely bland and flavorless. Thirty-two dollars for plain noodles (seriously-'nothing was on them, just boil and serve) and crab stuffed shrimp that had absolutely no flavor at all...I don't think there was even any salt or butter or anything on them...just shrimp and crab with nothing, no seasoning at all. This meal was highly recommended by the server. I could only recommend this place if you're on a bland diet.

Frank Mastro

Terrible. Ate at an outdoor table. Ordered the Fish & Chips. Most good establishment hand dip them in tempura and they arrive with a with a delicious crust and moist fresh cod. Not Here! 4 thin Fish fingers which were obviously bought frozen. Waitress was like a programmed robot who obviously had little or no training. Listened to her with the other table sand it was the same disingenuous approach. Cape May is usually known for it's great food and fine service. You will get neither here.

Dawn E

Really enjoyed this restaurant. The Crabby Patty and Lobster Roll was amazing. Old Bay Fries to add. This is a great lunch or dinner spot. Service was excellent. Definitely would recommend.

Fred Klein

Very good food. Good service. Great price for lobster.

Margie Rauscher

Friendly staff, good food and I enjoyed listening to the music which was playing softly in the background. Reasonable prices. Cape May Fish Market is always our go to spot for lunch.

Marco Esposito

Great seafood bar food wonderful drinks casual setting kids menu and a fun time

Bill Kynett

Great traditional stuffed flounder platter!

Louis Pecoraio

The service was very good, the shrimp scampi was good , the shrimp were huge but the sauce was not as tasty as it could have been

Jamie Popso


Breezy Nights

Great seafood. Inside or outside dining.

Jim Tyler

Good food and service

Mrs R

My husband and I went here and loved it!! We were able to walk in on a busy Saturday and get seated right away. Must try the New England Clam Chowder. It was delicious. I ordered the crab cake melt, my husband ordered the clams casino and they were fabulous!! We will be back!

bridget donovan

Three stars because the host staff really went out of their way to get us seated. The nice young man actually had an outside table getting up and had it cleaned and ready for us after letting us know it was a BYOB and recommending we go to the nearby liquor store for a bottle of wine or such. We came right back and the table was ready, to then unfortunately sat at the table and waited for 15 minutes without any acknowledgement from the serving staff. We got up, thanked the host staff and let them know why we were leaving.

Aaron King

Seafood and Crab Rolls were extremely good!

r m

We go here sometimes 2 or 3 times a week. The food is always good, the service is good. Don't judge on 1 bad meal, it may not be to your liking, ask for something else. They will be more than willing to make you happy!

Raymond Bartolo

Great food and service. Lobster special was very good at a great price. Our server was awesome.

Dave Wynne

Great food, tried their wings with old Bay, wow good.

Susan Cappuccio

Pricey but good.. excellent crab cake.

Jeff Tribbett

Service was pretty bad.. waited 20 minutes before anyone came to out to our table... calamari was over cooked as usual.. but the lobster special was wonderful... perfectly cooked w a nice salad...

Ed Ronan

Never had a bad meal and service had always been prompt and friendly.

Sofia Portillo

Great place for some good seafood!! Enjoyed grilled tuna (pickled beets are super delish!) My husband had the seafood roll (shrimp, crab, & lobster) , very generous on seafood portion. Too bad they didn't have beer... only serves wine. Overall great place for our 1st time.

Jason Ritchie

The owner was very nice, food was delicious

Annette Patterson

Large and varied menu. Very efficient, pleasant and helpful waitstaff. I loved the crab cakes entree, po boy was delicious. My daughter got the summer salad. It had huge portions of lobster crab and shrimp on it. My son got the fresh oyster appetizer and loved it. I would definitely recommend this place and go there again!


Nice stores

Sharon Siniscalco

Clean ,well priced, fresh fish...that's the whole game! Excellent!

Brandon Williams

Great experience, seafood roll was effin amazing! They seated our family of 7 immediately on a Saturday afternoon in July during peak season. This place is a gem. Only downer was they didn't offer adult beverages but we quickly forgot about that when the food was served.

Karla Wisor

Good food great service

Mike Hanson

Food was good. Our server Melissa was excellent.

Renee Henderson

The food and service was good. Will gladly go back

Jean-Pierre Seguin

They advertise a 1.5 pound lobster on their menu.... it’s wasn’t even close to one pound and not fresh!

Joanne Miller

I ordered the seafood sandwich with Lobster, shrimp and crabmeat. It was delicious.The service was a little slow, and the staff weren't as friendly.,but we enjoyed our first time going to eat here.

Jack Fiamingo

Nice and friendly with beautiful views. Typical waterside venue. Food is good but nothing special. Like most places of this nature go for the sunset have a beer grab some finger food enjoy your life.

Kirsten Duggan

We ordered the food To-Go so I cant comment on the service, but the food was amazing. It took a little longer then we were originally told, but we just window shopped around while we waited. The lobster tasted fresh and the clam strips and fries were great too.

Fatm Prelvu

The only good thing about this place was service. Everyone was polite. The food was a disaster. Crab cake was more mayo than crab. Fr fries were soggy and dripping oil. Not worth it. Waste of money.

Margaret Burke

The food was very average, not seasoned well, highly over priced & had frozen shrimp. Several of us french onion soup & that was the best part of the meal. Staff was friendly, but slow & didn't clear the table before rhe next course. Nice place.

Kevin Walsh

We had an excellent dinner on 4th of July! My wife's birthday! With 2 dogs, sat outside, staff & food were excellent!

Dean J

It was ok.

Deeppak Chakravarthy Kambarayar

The name says it all. If you are a sea food lover, then don't miss it.. their sea food roll like crab, lobster and shrimp was my favorite. Clam chowder was close to perfect.

Sheryl Lamontagne

Lobster special ...what could be better than that....

Genie Tyburski

I like it, but it's not my favorite restaurant in Cape May. The service is slow. The food is just OK, especially if you want a meal that's on the healthy side.

William Foster

Very nice place for lunch or dinner. Clean restaurant.

Joyceann Rhein

They have 4 totally different dining experiences. Including one take home. During the summer we love eating out back at the dock. They also have a boat for drinks and appetizers at the dock. Delicious.

Jeffrey Chou

Fish is fresh and staff is very helpful. This is where I go when I need fresh seafood.

Bob Romanelli

Great service great food

Michael O'keefe

Good service. We arrived at noon and were seared right away. Food is good but dont expect gourmet. Food came quickly and the wait staff was nice and attentive. Priced as you'd expect for a tourist local. We sat outside under the awning. Good people watching. Solid choice.

Deanna Lee

Seafood roll and Crab roll were fresh and enjoyed. Casual and friendly. Wish the served other alcohol. Not just full bottles of wine. But other then that it was good.

Nonie Glass

Great service, really good food?

carmita sigcha

Great food

Mandi Hoff

Quintessential tourist trap. $4 for a soda, $12 for six mozzarella sticks (not hand breaded with fresh mozzarella - they were frozen and reheated like any cheapo pizza joint). Kid got Mac and Cheese that had been sitting and was stirred up before serving, so it had chunks of globby burnt Cheese chunks, he sent it back for plain pasta. I made the mistake of ordering a $14 burger, which was served medium rare (I ordered well done). This was a frozen burger they slathered a cup of bbq sauce on top, tossed on several strings of shredded cheese (not melted), a half a strip of real bacon and a half a teaspoon of French's onion crumbles and served with a tiny bag of Wise potato chips. The person who suggested this place ordered lobster Mac and cheese, which didn't look all that exciting, he ate a few bites and trashed it. Waste of $77. Never will make this mistake again.

Hannah Olson

This was a lovely place, awesome food, wonderful staff. This place in culinary heaven, when I find myself back in Cape May I'm definitely coming back!

Mary Galanti

Great food, service, and atmosphere. Stay outside eating a lobster roll, which was awesome, and the fries were nice and crispy. Overall a 10 !!

Virginia Shirley

The food was awesome! I had stuffed flounder and it was the best I ever had!

phyllis mangiola

Enjoyed our meals. (Seafood roll). We had steamers but they were too small.

Beth Ripkin

Giving one star is honestly almost too generous in this case. The food here was absolutely awful and inedible. We ordered crab cocktail, lobster cocktail "fresh" flounder, clams, and whole lobster. The only thing that was even remotely good was the crab. Everything else we took one bite of and couldn't even bring ourselves to take another. When our waitress asked how everything was, and we (nicely) told her we wanted to send back the lobster cocktail, which was all claw and debris, she was immediately defensive and rude. When I went to the bathroom and got closer to the kitchen area, it was disgusting- smelled, looked unclean etc. I have never written a review for anything in my life, and HAD to, because that's how bad this place was.

Muzio Prioletti

Excellent food, service, and atmosphere! Waitstaff was very kind, and management 10/10. Will be coming back. Thank you for a wonderful dinner experience!

Gregg Milgram

Great seafood. Lobster special. Very good value.

Ivan Simon

Great food. Their clam chowder is really good


It's good. Get what you anticipate. We'll be back.

Christopher Castagna

Great food good atmosphere but over priced

In town on vacation with 10+ family members, we stopped at this restaurant for dinner. Worst dining experience I’ve had. Server was overwhelmed at the idea of splitting the check. Drinks came with no ice in them. Appetizers arrived with no plates or silverware. We ordered dinner. The first of our entrees arrived at 6 pm. Every five minutes or so a bus boy would bring out an entree or two, drop it on the table and leave. None of the food was good- fish was rubbery and seemed old. By 6:30 my daughters kids menu hot dog had yet to arrive. I went to the manager to ask where it was as our server had disappeared. She said she would get it right out and it would be free. Came ten minutes later. So, our entrees only took 40 total minutes to arrive!? And it’s not like we had a bunch of special orders. Took the server another fifteen minutes to figure out simple split checks, and they still charged us for a $8 hot dog...but gave us $3 off LOL...ridiculous. At this point I was too frustrated to even argue so I paid the check and left. The manager gave a sarcastic “sorry” as we left. I managed restaurants for years and would be embarrassed or fired if any of my restaurants operated like this. Oh, and I was up most of last night feeling nauseous. Zero stars for food quality, service, management, organization etc...there are 100 other restaurants in the area ... no wonder this was the only one that was empty and able to seat a group our size- should’ve realize that was a sign of how horrible they were. Steer clear!!

Charles Kozak

Seafood is amazing. friendly staff.


The service was good, the decor is cozy, but the food was pretty basic/underwhelming. Had the steamed littleneck clam as an appetizer (a tad overcooked), seafood roll (best dish we ordered), seafood pasta, and chicken and lobster alfredo. The search for yummy food in Wildwood/Cape May continues...

Adva Chattler

Good food, nice atmosphere

Dee Samuels

Food was good, a little pricey for lunch

Katelyn Gordon

Outdoor seating, quick service and great crab

Kathleen Berkenstock

Very good seafood and indoir and outdoor seating i had the Lobster roll. Delicious! They do it on a toasted roll with warm butter, so decadent. Service excellent. It is a bit pricey but food always fresh and tasty.

Maureen Greenbaum

Wonderful Cobb salad, big pile of lettuce, some iceberg&some colorful baby green,6 well grilled Strips of chicken, 4 egg halves, avocado, plenty of cheese and blue cheese. Big heathy & tastymeal! Friendly quick service. The water came with paper straws. Thank you for caring for the oceans, the sea animals and the world we share.

zully54 .

Great service and the food was delicious I recommend the, clam chowder, clam casino, fish and chips


Liked the restaurant so much we went twice over Labor Day weekend. Everything was great, from the seafood roll to the steamed little neck clams. I prefer steamers but these were great. Friendly staff that was helpful in making decisions. Hope to go again!


Food was amazing as was our service!

Janelle Fisher

I got coconut shrimp and it was delicious

Joseph Robinson

I looked this place up online and it had good ratings but when I went the quality of the food was terrible. Everything tasted like it was a frozen dinner thrown in a microwave or something and it was not cheap at all. There are much better options all over cape may. Do not go here

Greg Hartman

LOVED the crab soft tacos!!!!!

Michael J

The seafood is fresh and cooked well. The presentation of the food is quite easy on the eyes also. The wait staff is quick and customers have the choice of inside or outside seating. The restaurant fills quickly around 530 - 630. Price is typical for New Jersey seafood, on the high side, but with that being said,it is well worth every penny.

Richard Abel

Pricey but delicious

Paul Keen

Awful. Lobster Mac and cheese was a box of Kraft with some dry overcooked lobster on top. Comes with bonus food poisoning. Fried clam strips felt like something straight out of the frozen aisle. Littleneck linguini was completely drenched in sauce, it might as well have been soup.

Jennifer C

Atmosphere was calm and pleasant. Location was overall clean. Employees are nice. We did not wait long for our food.

Kristina K

I ate here with my family. They had something for everyone! I had the best crab cake sandwich that I ever had! Everyone said what they ordered was the best they ever had! Service was fast and accurate. We will be returning. Highly recommend!

angelo demaria

Food was awesome, great location. 4 adults and 4 kids with appetizers, 2 dz raw oysters, wine, was less then 250$

Rhiannon Carini

Very good!! My family was in town visiting and we are locals and never been there.. very good!

Megan Stallone

We ate here in the beginning of December. I had the lobster roll and it was delicious. It is a casual environment. It is BYOB, but they sell bottles of local wine to enjoy with your meal. My husband had the cheesesteak hoagie and he said he would give it 3.5 stars, but he is from Philly, so he's particular about his cheesesteaks. I think the only negative thing I would say is that it is a little expensive for the food, but it is in the most touristy part of Cape May.

Operations Manager

Great food. Friendly staff.

Ricardo Ferreira

Very nice lobster roll and seafood roll

babies and me Connelly

Good food but price too high but the food is good

Jacqueline Davis

Absolutely amazing food and amazing service!!! Ordered the seafood roll and lobster special (19.99 for lobster, salad, and fries!) and both were delicious! Can't wait to go back

moparkid440 .

Very good service and good food. Definitely recommend

michael davis

Good quality, selection ( fresh, prepared or cooked) and prices. Definitely a stop in every time we're down there

Mervin Taylor

Lobster rolls excellent Plus Service

voxxpopulisuxx .

waaay overpriced. Service adequate....charged 4.00 for club soda!

janine puglia

Great food

K H.

Great food

madelyn mertz

My family of 4 including myself all ordered different things and none of us were satisfied. The meat is dry, the seafood meat was especially dry. The service however was fast and our waitress was a darling! Probably wouldn’t go back though. Overpriced for the quality

Jill Matthews

Delicious!! Had a whole steamed lobster!! Very fresh and excellent service!

Jeff Sale

Most amazing staff ever here. We had our 2 and 1 year old, and they brought them balloons! Such a nice place, and great prices!

Christopher Kratz

As a vegan, their advertisement of now offering the Impossible Burger is what appealed to me. It ended up being the best one I've had to date. It was also encouraging to hear how much discussion was being had about the Impossible Burger with the staff. In a perfect world, to me, things would obviously be different, but at least places like the Cape May Fish Market gives people an option.

Denise Wrightington

Amazing New England Clam Chowder

Helen Clymer

Stopped by on a Tuesday and had a nice table on the mall. Trista took care of us and we had a great meal of crab claws and fish tacos. We’ll be back!

Colleen Fitzpatrick

Excellent 19.99 Lobster

Basil Hartman

If you want fish in Cape May, come here.

Bill Bogle Jr.

The fish and chips had actual filets that were so good. Not just chopped up pieces of unknown fish. Ate outside and had a wonderful lunch.

Chris Pedone

Great service, great atmosphere, a must stop every time we're in Cape May.

Darren McVeety

Great food and staff

Brian Ralston

The Impossible Burger (me) and the Lobster Roll (my wife) were excellent, as was the service from Trista,

Miranda B

The clam chowder was soo good and the lobster special was worth it!

Chad Rabinowitz

Wife and I stopped here for lunch and it was great. Service was friendly and quick. My wife ordered the crab grilled cheese and I had the fish and chips, both were amazing. Tip: they don’t served beer, however it is BYOB and there is a liquor store around the corner;). Try the local cape may beer..

Charlie Hagerty

Great food, service and prices

Gina Vingara

They do not spare on quantity or quality! Reasonable prices and friendly/attentive staff. A must-go during your next Cape May stay.
