Why Should I Go? The food at the Pier House has always been sexy. It’s colorful and fresh, rich enough to be satisfying, but light enough that you end your meal still feeling light yourself.
The restaurant serves breakfast (for fueling up before a long day of work… or a long day of working on your tan), lunch (for when you need a break from sun-worshipping but don’t want to travel far from your towel), and dinner (for when you want a gastronomic symphony of Mediterranean-inspired flavors that will intoxicate your senses.)
But it doesn’t so much matter if your food is sexy if the place where you’re dining isn’t enticing, too. This is part of the reason why the Pier House is a Cape May favorite. Listen closely from your table on the outside terrace, and you can hear the lapping of ocean waves against the shore across the street. Or spend your time indoors, in a comfortable dining room or the classy cocktail lounge that features global wines and refreshing cocktails. Wherever you dine, you’ll experience a New York City-caliber staff in a seaside setting.
Insider Tip: The Pier House is open year-round and also features the works of renowned artist Lance Balderson.
