If we’re talking about the well shucked, wonderfully fresh oysters on the half shell and the service, a solid 4. A 3 for fried and grilled calamari, presumably house specials, that didn’t do much for us. The Brazilian swordfish was cooked perfectly but tasted like...More

Our first time here, along with friends who suggested this place for a Friday dinner. We are glad they did. From the service to the food, everything was excellent. I had jalapeno and lime coated shrimp for an appetizer. There were shrimp dumplings and salads...More

Another memorable appetizer was the tender and delicious Grilled Portuguese Octopus. Our entrees included perfectly cooked Organic...More

I went with three friends. All of our main seafood dishes were very fresh and simply cooked so we could enjoy the ingredients. In contrast the appetizers were very seasoned. In both cases, they were great. The service was exceptional. I'm not from NJ but...More

Until we visited BPG, I (falsely) assumed that seafood restaurants away from the coast were not serving the fresh, glistening seafood I have enjoyed in Cape May. How wrong I was! This is a marvelous place to enjoy an incredible array of outstanding seafood dishes....More

Excellent food and service but were shocked at the dirty dishes being carried around the corner and left outside near where we parked - lot of cans and bottles stacked up which was unsightly and made me wonder how fussy they were behind the scenes...More
