BETTER THAN MARDI GRAS
We visited on the very last night of the 2008 season, and were somewhat startled to find the host and all the staff dressed in costumes, clever to exotic, as well as many of the customers,who I guess know the ropes that the last night is dress up night having been here before. At first we were a bit put off--but never been to a restaurant of this calibre with such a friendly staff. And THE FOOD was incredible. Rich deep succulent spicy Lobster bisque and an elegant crab meat avocado terrine started us off, then the most delicious and largest meat dish I've ever eaten, a smoked, blackened and then grilled prime rib still on the bone, crispy smokey and spiced on the outside, tender within, while my wife had local caught Mahi Mahi with a vanilla laced somewhat sweet coconut lime sauce, with a miniature glass of an amazing little fruit drink and coconut battered shrimp delightfully arranged on the plate. And shockingly we somehow split a chocolate bourbon pecan pie helped by a glob of real whipped cream, and cups of dark French Roast coffee. We both agreed, best restaurant meal we ever had anywhere.
The food has remained the same for my entire life. Living in Cape May and having a father who worked at this restaurant for almost 2 decades now has allowed me to enjoy every single menu item and more. Everything seems to out-do the rest. Without doubt try the Blackened Scallops app and the Smoked Mako Shark app special. The oyster stew is the best soup I've ever had and I don't even care for oysters. As for entree's the Tuna BBS (black bean sauce) or the Red Snapper Provencal are my favorite menu choices for fish but if you are a meat eater then definitely try the Jamaican Steak or the Prime Rib but definitely get the Rib cooked to Medium or Med Well... it tastes better and is more buttery.... TRUST ME! Desert definitely the key lime pie or the bread pudding (aka cube of ecstasy).
