We went on a Thursday night to celebrate our anniversary. The outdoor seating was super cute and comfortable. Our waiter was fantastic and very friendly and accommodating. The food, however, was so so. I got the steak and cake. The steak was juicy and delicious and the crab cake had no filler but was a bit dry. I had to ask for cocktail sauce. My husband got the skirt steak and he did not like it. It was very dry and he had to ask for melted butter to put over it. The side vegetables were potatoes and carrots which were overcooked and a bit charred. We also got the key lime pie which was very good. Overall we had a nice time, but for the price I was expecting a little more in terms of quality cooking.

Just dined at Ebbitt Room, June 2020.

I wouldn't know what it was like before since it was our 1st trip to Cape May. However, we had a nice cocktail on the porch prior to dinner, which was quaint & enjoyable.

The outside dining on bluestone patio was a nice setup. They had a huge umbrella, too, which probably comes in handy when sunny.

Grilled, breaded oysters were outstanding, as were the scallops. My wife loved the salmon, and my children split chicken & calamari.

I would definitely go back, and had a very enjoyable dining experience. Thank you Ebbitt Room!

Dined in the new outdoor courtyard, which was lovely. The tables were a bit tight however. The flounder tempura was outstanding. The oysters were 5 star. Service was very attentive.

Enjoyed the ambience of outdoor seating. The atmosphere was perfect for a quiet, intimate dinner for two. We have eaten here many times and truly enjoyed this outdoor, garden dining experience... hope this continues to be a seating option.

Ebbitt Room lived up to it's lofty reputation Thursday with a delicious outdoor meal. There were about 15 tables. The service was a little slow but good. The food was delicious. The pork rib starter was a big hit with all who had it at our and surrounding tables. I had the filet and my wife had the flounder, and both were fabulous. Very worth the ride from atlantic county.

We were staying in town for my girlfriend’s birthday week and the dinner at Ebbitt Room was outstanding. Well prepared food, amazing presentation and highest quality service. The restaurant manager made sure my girlfriend got a desert at the end of the meal , compliments of the restaurant. That was a very kind gesture. We highly recommended the restaurant.

They made an outdoor patio, it is darling with pretty lights and space heaters! Like a secret garden! The night was almost perfect ... we were brought the wrong entrees but they fixed it right away...Andy our waiter was beyond nice and so apologetic and he took it off the bill which was not necessary! it was their first night open after the closing and they still did such a great job everyone was so nice and everyone had PPE on. We felt very safe and fully enjoyed our dining experience. The drinks were made perfectly, the food was wonderful as always and we finished it off with warm donuts and cappuccino!! We hope to be back very soon as it has always been and still is one of our faves in CM!!!

I’d refer people for the incredible ambiance and great little bar to grab a drink. All this place needs is a decent chef and you’d never be able to get a reservation. The food is just terrible, especially considering how amazing the ambiance.

A terrific place. Great waiters, good food. But their runners abruptly drop the food and run making the experience feel a bit amateurish. It was so noticeable

The mac and cheese was not enjoyable...little taste. Tables were too close and very very loud. We had a.large table right on top of my wife and I who were all visibly drunk.and obnoxious. Management should have stepped in and dealt with the problem as we were not the only tables very upset by the party...we expected more at what should have been an upscale dining experience.

Food was good but extremely loud, and if your a table for 2 your right on top of the next table! For a high end restaurant I expected a much better experience! The Washington Inn has it beat by a mile!!

BuddhaBoy, I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the ambiance of our restaurant--it is certainly a buzzy, lively dining room, especially on busy nights, but we believe that only adds to the overall experience and we would hope our guests feel the same way. I saw that you gave us high marks for the food and service, and I certainly hope that will prompt a return visit. We would love to turn around your opinion of the Ebbitt Room. Best, Jordan Rowan General Manager
