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

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.

Cape May was one of my favorite dining locations at WDW. I ate there this past October and was disappointed with the change to the clam chowder, not nearly as good as it was in the past. The chowder contained lots of corn and didn't have as many clams as in the past. I also noticed that the steamed shrimp were also not on the buffet as in past years. Also seemed like there were fewer choices all around like the vegtables and other meats. The price is now up to $38 per adult which is really getting pricey for me.

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.

Do they still have clams? Does the interior of the restaurant look different, after the refurb?
