Dined here with a group of friends. All of us were pleased with our meals and the apps. The menu is quite nice, a nice variety. Great service and a nice atmosphere. Will definitely return.

Having spent many a night eating at great restaurants throughout Cape May, NJ, we thought someplace casual and not real upscale would be a nice try. We met friends there and found the place busy this late into the season. There were no seats at the bar but were greatly suprised when the bartender came out from behind the bar to take our drink order...Once some seats opened up he cleaned and cleared the area so we could enjoy our cocktails. Exemplary service I must say. Drinks were great.....We took our time enjoying our drinks letting the hostess know that we had reservations. She politely informed us to please take our time and she would hold our table.....We existed the bar area and headed to the restaurant portion only to find the noise level worse then a rock concert....We tried but could not sit there and enjoy our meal so the delightful hostess asked if mind sitting in the bar area where there were several booths. Off to the bar for a nice quiet meal. The food they served was awesome, from the Feta and watermelon salad(paired perfect) to the Veal chop and NY Strip steak, everything was really great..We will absolutely return to this fine place

One of the best meals ever !
Dinner for three at the Pier House was more than perfect. Excellent service, presentation and food.
Try the watermelon and feta salad, with arugula, honey and walnuts, it is terriffic!
Our table had the Ph balance, a wonderful flash fried lobster tail and a filet mignon,
a NY Strip "dirty" and a filet mignon. We also ordered the lamb lolipops as an appitizer for the table to split and enjoy.
The service was superb,attentive but not intrusive. Carlos and the house staff were at there best.
Terrific wine list with USA and international wines in a good spectrum of prices.
We chose a great Napa cabernet.
Dinner was so good we had no room for desert but saw some great looking treats at neighboring tables.
Put it on your list to visit the Pier House on your next visit to Cape May. You won't be disappointed and will probably be pleasantly suprised by this gem.
There is no pier in sight of the Pier House but as far as we're concerned they have no peer in the Cape May market.
Go and enjoy........ Life is short........ Don't wait!
