Mad Batter Restaurant
Everything was fantastic!
Food here is always delicious, very consistent. We love that we can walk there and then head over to the mall after dinner.
Celebrating a High School Graduation. Dietary restriction- gluten, vegetarian, no carbs. We had many options. Food was great! Staff were friendly and attentive.
Chicken salad was warm and was tasteless. Crab cake was huge but just okay. Fell apart in the roll. Fries were soggy.$59.00 for 2 sandwiches and 2 drinks. Not worth it. Just okay
We went for dinner with Kids and it was great. My dinner was very good. Service attentive. Fun place.
Looking forward to trying it for brunch
Great food, fun atmosphere and very accommodating staff
Upscale porch seating and food.
Fresh local ingredients. GF options.
Refreshing drinks and live entertainment in the bar. One of our favorites for years.
A very nice place for dinner after a day at the beach. The service was terrific. Portions generous and the food was very tasty.
Awesome food,great beer selections, and absolutely stupendous staff!
Thank you for your review. We hope you'll be back again soon - the beer selection changes often so there's always another great brew to sample! Cheers!
6/13/19 Scampi with scallops had very little flavor. Cost $30. Vegetable Wellington was good only because the sauce was. Vegetables had no seasoning. Twin filet dinner was very good. Child’s flounder also very good. I think the better reviews come from breakfast and lunch. Disappointing dinner for a 4 star restaurant.
We always make a stop at the Mad Batter with our two daughters, ages 10 and 13, when we come to Cape May. Great food, always excellent service and it’s a fun atmosphere. Try the Bayberry Wings with the Thai chili sauce! We could just make appetizers into a meal. Love the hummus and roasted pita, and delicious salads, as well as cocktails too.
Thank you for your review. We agree, the Bayberry Wings are yummy. And, it's OK to share several appetizers instead of entrees - that way you can try a lot of different items from the menu. Hope to see you again soon!
Can’t say enough about this place. Food was outstanding!! Exceptional wait staff !!
If you don’t go here to eat you don’t know what you will be missing out on!
Thank you for your 5 star review. Great food and great service are what we strive for - thanks for letting us know we hit our mark! We hope you will return soon.
Restaurant Week Menu was fantastic, we sat out on the porch and enjoyed a nice dinner. Food and service was great. Will be back next year
Dining with young children can sometimes be challenging but staff were friendly and patient. Salad was very fresh and flavorful
Glad you enjoyed dining with your children at the Batter. We're a family restaurant and we try to please our little guests as well!
WE LOVED MAD BATTER! We ate during Cape May Restaurant Week and what a deal for meals! There was no skimping on the portions and everything was seriously delicious! We sat on the enclosed porch. It was so cozy! We'll be back!
Happy that you were able to take advantage of Restaurant Week. It's a nice opportunity for guests to try us. Now that you've sampled our food, we hope you'll be back again soon!
It was restaurant week in Cape May. I know this puts a lot of stress on the restaurant and the staff, but the purpose is to impress the diners so they will come back and also recommend the restaurant. Our dining experience was totally mediocre. The food was less than average and the plating was like the food was thrown on the plate. I’ve eaten at the Mad Batter before and this dinner did not meet their usual dining fare. I had the salmon which was over cooked and dry. The sweet potatoes were boring. The asparagus was good but nothing special. It reminded me of the food I had eaten growing up. My mom was not a good cook but she got the job done.
Perhaps, It may be time for the Mad Batter to NOT participate in restaurant week.
Delicious food in a quaint setting. A good deal for Restaurant Week.
I loved having so many delicious vegan options! I especially loved the vegan crab cakes. Sitting on the front porch with the windows open was a dreamy way to enjoy a meal in June.
We always have a great time and love the food. Our waitress Paulina was terrific
Everyone in our party loved their meal. Would definitely go back!
Great food and specials
The waitress was great , friendly , attentive & very courteous ! Food was excellent ! Will definitely come back and try your breakfast . Was my first time there, my friend has been many times for breakfast with her family . Out Cocktail was delicious also.
Always a pleasure to eat at when we are in Cape May. And their attention to those needing gluten free dining with their separate gluten free menu is great.
Food was excellent! The ambiance did not however match the prices of the food, as the environment was not terribly refined, private or romantic. Serving staff was friendly, but not very attentive. We waited quite awhile for our dessert and also for our check, even though the dining room wasn’t very full. The food and beverages were really very good, would certainly try again! We especially enjoyed the lobster fritters, shipwreck punch and chorizo paella!
Always a lovely experience! Excellent food and service!
The crab cakes were dry. Mac n cheese was oily and bland. The drinks were very tasty. Wings were also good.
food was ok but below quality esp for the price. pretty place, nice location but we sat right next to the room with the bar in it and there was live music that was loud enough for us to not be able to hear ourselves easily. I was looking for romantic dinner and it wasn't that.
Did not recognize our anniversary
Nice casual eatery with excellent variety, everything from wings to seafood risotto. Sizable portions and great value
We ate out on the porch where it was fairly quiet. One of my favorite burgers in the cape may area and the fries are the best too!
Would absolutely recommend ...loved the happy hour, had some super appetizers and then had a delicious dinner! The garden is gorgeous such a pretty serene spot. Only stayed one night planning to go back, ty for such great service. The entire staff was friendly and accommodating. Hope you all have a great summer!
The personnel (from the host to the servers) was excellent. It is located in a beautiful street and it has an interesting set up. The place is divided into three areas, the front set of tables is located in an indoor porch (white and colorful modern booths), the second area is in the old bar and restaurant with dark paneling and a charming old bar (live music too!) and the third area is in the back, in a terrace that could be open in the summer. The menu was interesting, it contains many vegetarian options, the food was very good. The desserts were great, and the cocktails were excellent. It was a bit loud, but it was nice to have the music in the background.
It was a very busy evening and service was not up to it....very pleasant but folks were getting appetizers before drink orders were filled-I believe that there were not enough service folks on duty as the bar and interior dining room was ver full.
Food excellent as always as would recommend highly.
We had a great dinner on a busy night. My paella was delicious and everyone in my party was happy
Excellent service and a shockingly good vegan menu. Great tasting vegan fare and a wonderful craft beer menu
Very nice experience. Professional management and service. Friendly bar that poured good drinks. Lots of vegetarian options that can bee tweaked to your preference based on numerous protein options. We will try it again, suggest you try it too.
The Mad Batter is a restaurant I have been to several times over the years. It is pretty standard and, as I have indicated with the ratings, it is a "good" restaurant, but doesn't raise to the level of great or above, especially with all of the "great" and "outstanding" competition surrounding it. Nice for a casual lunch or dinner.
Was seated on the porch, facing a window. Was blinded by the sun the entire time. Other than that, it was pleasant.
It was my daughters 13th birthday and she chose the Mad Batter. It is one of her favorite places to eat! Everything was great! And they treated to her bday dessert we love the Batter, it never disappoints!!
The waitress was slow and not very upbeat. Didn’t feel like she was interested in pleasing us in anyway. Had to ask for drink refills instead of them asking us. The clam chowder was amazing!
