We enjoy sitting on the dock with a drink or lite meal when we are waiting for our ferry to arrive. Great view and sunsets if you time it right.

We met family members at the Ferry and decided to have dinner at OTR. The food was good, the staff was great and the views were awesome! The prices are also very reasonable. Even if the outside bar and grill aren't open, you can still order from the inside bar and sit outside if the weather is nice. It's right... More

The Crab Cake special is outstanding coupled with good cold draft beer make for a satisfying meal before the ferry trip.

Service was good. My husband had bbq wings and I had a burger. Both were good and the atmosphere was very pleasant. We enjoyed watching the ferries pulling in and out.

I am a local who's heard how great the burgers are here. Well I was quite disappointed to pay $12 for the Caprese burger- I ordered it pink but received the DRIEST burger that I've ever eaten. I honestly think it had some filler too. Will never go back to eat- ever. Too many other good burger places in the... More

The food is simple and fantastic. View of the ferry boats is great. Very dog friendly. We could not have asked for a better place to eat dinner.

When you think about a bar and grill at a ferry terminal you don't expect anything more then the basics but On the Rocks is not your typical terminal bar. There is a nice sized indoor bar area that is comfortable and well equipped but the outside bar and grill area is large and has a wonderful view of the... More

Took the second to last ferry from Cape May to meet some friends for dinner. When we got seated, we were informed that they close as soon as the last ferry docks and unloads, so dinner was somewhat of a rushed affair...no lingering over drinks. The food was decent. We had some appetizers and I had a hamburger. Drinks were... More

Had a two-hour wait for the CM Ferry and was worried I would have to wander Cape May's tourist stops. Found the "Rocks" and wanted to stay longer. Great music, good Micro-brew selection and tasty apps.The staff was very cool and spent time talking with us. I'll be back even if I don't use the Ferry.

Thank Richard C
