Unhappy Cape May's New Menu

Just ate at Cape May tonight, first time since menu change. I really missed the ribs, and plain clam chowder. The crab legs are as good as always, and really everything else was good.

Just wish they hadn't taken away the ribs, clam chowder (now seafood chowder and thicker), flan (now individual servings, but not as creamy, rather dry), oreo bon-bons, and a few other things I can't remember.

My DH was totally satisfied though as the crab legs and boiled shrimp are mostly what he eats.

I don't eat ribs but I hear you on the seafood chowder - I wonder what all is in there? The clam chowder was a big favorite for me.

Sorry about the changes, but thanks for the news.

The chowder had clams, shrimp, scallops (or fish cubes (?)),corn, potatoes, not sure of anything else. It was OK, but not the clam chowder I knew and loved. They told me for future reference that had I asked, they could have brought me out a bowl of their *original* clam chowder as that is the *base* for which they make the seafood chowder now. Kind of late for me now though

We *found* it by eating there Mon. night, also by hearing about it when they closed to refurbish.

They still have large steamed shrimp, but they're already peeled My DH loves them I do really miss the ribs (the new braised shortribs are a misnomer though because there are no ribs, just shredded meat).

Loved the old desserts best, although there are still some good ones.

Really?? My DH would love to get the old clam chowder. He thought the new seafood chowder was too thick. Too much of a good thing I guess.

I also miss the oreo bon-bons. But not enough to go buy them outside of the regular buffet price.

Can anyone confirm for me that their clam chowder is still available in the BC Marketplace? When DH and I were there in late October, I ate the clam chowder from the BC Marketplace every night for dinner, I loved it so much. Usually we make one trip to the Cape May Buffet, but I'll just go to the Marketplace if they have the clam chowder.

We are eating there for the first time at the end of this month. Do they have a carving station like the other buffets and a "kids station"? My DS is a picky eater and does not eat fish.

Thanks!!

Yes, they do have a carving station. They also have a kid's station with mac & cheese, chicken drumsticks, fish nuggets, pizza, can't remember what else.

Ate there Mon. night, everything was very good.
