    We love Cape May and return every trip.

    My kids are 11 & 15 now but we have been going since they were young.

    We feel that the food is fresh and good. It is a nice break from the park food and it is a relaxing atmosphere.

    I hope you go and try it.


    :thumbsup2

    I am trying to decide between Cape May and Portobello. Has anyone eaten at both to make a comparison?

    It's a *must do* for us every trip (sometimes twice). There's something for everyone, seafood & non. :)

    We had Cape May dinner last week. My husband is a big seafood lover so he was in heaven. The rest of the family had salad and whatever we could find and then dessert. I loved what I had and the husband was happy.

    We went on 9/20 with our 2 kids (11 and 9) and they loved it. Even my daughter who has gluten allergies liked it. She was able to eat a lot of what was on the buffet. My son loved the crab legs!!!

    As for the Cape May - vs - Portobello notion, that's kind of an apples-to-oranges type thing, can't really fault either but they are totally different experiences.

    My nephews love Cape May, and are currently 8 and 5; they've been going since they were 5 and 2. The 8-yr-old considers this his favorite WDW restaurant (he LOVES cracking crab legs and will eat his weight in them when we go); his younger brother likes it for the shrimp, mostly - neither of these boys is particularly fond of chicken nuggets or mac and cheese, so they really enjoy the breaks they get when we eat at places where they can get better choices.

    Used to take my DD there each and every trip for dinner when she was under 8 and she loved it. We are seafood lovers and are always on the lookout for good spots. Around age 9, she discovered bluezoo, and it has been hard to pry her (and me) away from there when we need a seafood fix. But if she asked, I would go back to Cape May without hesitation, despite my overall disinterest (and sometimes distain) for buffets.

    I love Cape May. Just made a reservation for my Birthday Dinner!!! Love the salad bar, clam chowder, shrimp cocktail, snow crab legs and steamed clams!!! For the non-seafood lovers in your family, there is plenty to choose from: ribs, chicken, beef! I also love the mac and cheese off the kids buffet. (what can I say, I'm a kid at heart)

    More Cape May fans here! DH is not a seafood eater (other than clams and the occasional piece of fish) and he really enjoys it! The food quality is very good. We've been well over 20 times and can't recall ever having a poor experience there.
