American | Ventnor City, Atlantic City

My sister and her husband were in town from Richland, Washington. I wanted to treat them to a wonderful experience with amazing food and Cardinal Bistro was my restaurant of choice. We had a 7 PM reservation and were graciously welcomed into the restaurant, shown to our seat, and Sage came by to introduce herself and explain the specials. We made our selections and my sister and her husband were totally focused on their choices and dug right in to enjoy themselves ! Throughout the meal, comments were, "This is the best dinner I've had here this week", "Delicious", "The Halibut is fantastic !" My brother-in-law ordered the pork chop and his eyes nearly popped out of their sockets when he saw that size of the pork chop ! But, he managed to get every single morsel of meat off the bone with a big smile on his face. Thank you, Michael, for a wonderful evening with my sister and brother-in-law. We don't see each other too often, and they are going home with a delicious memory of our night at Cardinal Bistro ! Adding to the most enjoyable evening, was the attentiveness of your father, checking on us to make sure we were enjoying our meals. Both your father and Sage complimented our experience at Cardinal Bistro ! More

Discover South Jersey Shore

There is no place like the Jersey Shore. Towns like Atlantic City have much to offer, especially food. With cheese on the bottom and sauce on top, boardwalk pizza is a delight. Consider trying an oversized "XXL" pie with cheese, mushrooms, and red peppers. Atlantic City is one of the best places to get salt water taffy. Available in any candy store in the neighborhood, this treat comes in a variety of flavors. Dig through the box and discover why this candy has been a Jersey Shore favorite for over 100 years. No trip to Atlantic City is complete without a taste of creamy homemade ice cream. The salt water air will make you crave this amazing dessert.
