    I know many of you have heard mixed reviews about Cape May. But my family and I loved it! My DD13 does not like any kind of seafood. So as you can imagine she wasn't to happy when we went here. We arrived later in the night so not many people were there and you wouldn't need reservations. Once we were seated our wonderful server came over and took our orders. He was very polite every time he came over to check on us. We all left for the buffet and I made my DD try 1 clam. After that she loved it and couldn't have enough. The rest of the family was no different they kept getting up for clams/mussels/ and all the other exceptional food. We will definitely come back to Cape May and reccomend it to anyone who is on the edge about it.

    Hi
    Thanks for your review. I've been reading negative reviews and was thinking of changing my ADR. After reading your review, I've decided to keep it and try it for ourselves.

    Just ate there two weeks ago and the seafood was great. Salad bar was just "ok" and desserts were lacking, but loved the mussels and clams.

    If you're looking for a relaxed quiet place to eat, this is not it, but if you want good seafood, you found the right spot!

    Thank you for the review. We will be trying Cape May next Monday evening. I've read the negative reviews lately but since we have never eaten there and we are staying at the Beach Club we're going to give it a try.

    My son and I really loved the desserts there. My husband and mom loved the clams and my 6 year old liked the pizza.

    We'll definately go again.

    Do they have other things besides sea food? Ribs perhaps?

    We have an ADR there for our upcoming trip in a little over a week - never ate there before and was wondering what else they had to eat - DH likes shrimp but not clams, and DD12 doesn't like seafood at all. Thanks for your help!

    A group of 8 of us just got done dining at Cape May Cafe. Average was the best rating I could give it.

    The buffet set up has changed a bit. On one side is peel & eat shrimp/salads/soups, the opposite side are rolls/carving station/children's buffet. The other two sides are now the same items -- muscles, chicken, fish, beef tips in wine sauce, mashed potato, corn on the cob.

    To call this a seafood buffet is a bit of a stretch, but I'll go with it.

    Here is what I ate:
    > The clam chowder was outstanding.
    > The caesar salad was just okay.
    > The clams were good, but very tiny. And half of the shells were empty when I returned to the table.
    > The beef tips in wine sauce was horrible.
    > The salmon special was okay.
    > The top round of beef at the carving station was unedible -- it was overcooked, dry, and a flavor I can not describe.
    > The children's Mickey-roni and Cheese and Chicken Tenders were tasty, but I can get all of that from the frozen food section of my local grocery store.
    > The desserts were only fair.

    I don't know if this whole DDP thing is driving more volume but needing to lower the food quality to match the price.

    It used to be Cape May was a nice fine dining restaurant that happened to be a buffet.

    In my opinion, it is now an average buffet wanting to call itself fine dining.
