Food to price is great. The service was awful. If you don't mind a long wait, unfriendly bar tenders, and continually looking for your server, then give this place a try.

Sea food was fresh with good presentation. Raw oysters were tasty and incredibly cheap. Our server Jess was polite and efficient. Generous potions..

We have been going here for many years and we are never disappointed. The food is delicious and the service is great. We are so amazed at how they can do such a good job in such a big place. I am a chef and I really know how difficult it is to be consistent with good quality food and... More

Had a get together with family on the Schooner just to do appetizers and everyone wanted to eat dinner. So went to the front desk and not a problem seated us upstairs almost right away because being in the middle of summer thinking almost impossible. Sevice was wonderful will give a 5 star and the atmosphere another 5 Star!

Terrible! I have been here before and it was great but this time was terrible. I ordered lobster. It was all mushy and watery. Tasted horrible. Long wait. Our waiter was very nice but I will not be going here again. Over $100 for a dinner that I couldn't eat. We did finish our drinks and we had appetizers

My husband and I love to dine at The Lobster House on a dark winter's eve. We enjoy our lobster dinner in the softly lit dining room as we take in the view of sparkling waters under a clear starlit sky. A very different but lovely vibe worth enjoying.

My wife and I had the pleasure of stopping for lunch at the Lobster house on Friday, 12/9/16. We were very pleased with the excellent service and the quality of the food. I especially enjoyed the snapper soup while my wife enjoyed the clam chowder. we make sure that we visit The Lobster House every time we in Cape May.

Amazing food and service! Husband loves the lump crab cocktail and every other seafood dish on the menu. I'm not a fish lover but I have to say I had one of the best chicken francaise dinners ever. Look forward to every visit to Cape May!
