What a treat we had! The food was delicious and the portions were outrageously large. My husband and I shared an entree and for the first time in 36 years together, he was unable to finish.

We have been going there since day 1 of poening. We go to Gorndon Ramsey about twice a month. We noticed some of our favorite things missing off the menu both this time and 2 weeks ago. Hoping they would return. But they did not. My husband got the Dublin which he has in the past. Shocked how small it was and very little corned beef in it. My steak and ale pie only had 3 peices of beef in it. Expected more. The mushrooms and asparagus were great. Memo our server was Excellent as usual. The wrestling tournament was in town so the resturant was packed.

About the restaurant
The history of McCormick & Schmick's Seafood Restaurants began when Bill McCormick purchased Jake's Famous Crawfish Restaurant located in Portland, Oregon, and brought the more than 100-year-old landmark back to life. When asked the secret of how he revitalized a restaurant on the brink of closing, McCormick says, "I like nothing better than being a good host." Part of the managerial talent McCormick tapped was Doug Schmick, a management trainee. The two formed a partnership in 1974, creating Traditional Concepts, a precursor to today's McCormick & Schmick's Seafood Restaurants. In 1979, they opened the original McCormick & Schmick's Seafood Restaurant in Portland, Oregon. The combination of an open imagination and a respect for tradition are what makes McCormick & Schmick's the classic and successful business that it is today.

We loveddd it. We went the Friday after Valentine’s Day around 8:30 it wasn’t too packed. We got to meet the owner and we were given a gift from the kitchen. We loved trying something new. We loved the live music that was playing and even thought the pianists didn’t know the song we requested he played similar songs and we absolutely loved it. We loved the food and the wine. It was amazing and I would love to go again.

About the restaurant
Gather at the Blue Pig Tavern, our distinctive restaurant tucked in the corner of Congress Hall. Known for hearty breakfast, lunch and dinner favorites, its name derives from a gambling parlor sited in Congress Hall in the mid-1800s. Earlier still, in the 1700s, Elias Hughes operated a tavern for whalers on this site. It was the first tavern in Cape May. Today, we offer timeless classics and new seasonal delights with ingredients that are always farm-fresh.

First time dining at The Blue Pig Tavern. Food and service were excellent! Especially loved the chopped salad, Tomahawk pork chop and chicken pot pie. The service and staff were exceptional - very attentive and personable. Our server Lilia was wonderful, her recommendation for the banana pudding for dessert topped off the evening. Very nice touches in recognition of our anniversary too. Just a little noisy in seating area near the service bar but we had a great experience overall!
