We came in with a group of 8 and sat at the bar on a Saturday in November. The bartenders are very nice and the drinks good. We ordered some appetizers and were really disappointed with the quality. For example, the menu stated "fresh" guacamole and it obviously was not. The bar has a great location right across from the... More

We went to Cabanas later in the evening looking for a decent meal. The food was good but the general experience left a bit to be desired. They were definitely understaffed. It took about 10 minutes for anyone to acknowledge that we were there to be seated. We almost left but held out. The atmosphere was unlike any bar and... More

Big selection of local Cape May Brewery beers, we like to frequent the local establishments. We both had the Shanty and... More

Stopped in for a late afternoon bite. Was a little of something for everyone. Has ample room for large groups, as well as tables for 2. A nice size bar, and they have an array of specialties. Had their coconut shrimp tacos, that had a nice blend of slaw on top, could have had a couple more shrimp though...The Crab... More

Every year my husband and I go to Cape May for Victorian Weekend to celebrate our anniversary. And we always go out on Saturday night for drinks after dinner to Cabanas. We have such a great time. The crowd is great, the drinks are awesome, I usually have a few martinis! And we really enjoy the live entertainment. We have... More

This place is always hopping. The food is great, and the beer is always cold and refreshing. Located right along the beach.

Really nice casual dinner in an open air restaurant with an ocean view. Not fancy, but the food was good and our server was a sweetheart. We had never visited here before and were pleasantly surprised! We'll be back!
