Mad Batter Restaurant
We loved the food, service and the vibe so much, we returned for lunch and dinner the next day! We NEVER do that! The best part is we were not disappointed, each meal was truly great! And the service and staff were super efficient and friendly. Great place!
Music is always a plus! Food and service was fabulous. The place was hopping!
The hostess was friendly and seated us very quickly! Food was good and we were served pretty quickly. We will go back!
We had a 6:30 reservation. At 6:45 we were told we could sit in bar area or wait another 15 minutes for table. We sat in bar area. Very very loud , we could talk to other people at our table. Then a musician started. Food was very good but not the night we were expecting.
Great food selections, great service and great atmosphere. Music in the bar area was quite nice. Cozy fireplace in the main dining room and the décor make this place special. Don't forget to order a Manmosa!
One of our favorites in Cape May. Consistent food and friendly service. Wonderful ambiance. This visit I had the grilled salmon off the menu. Comes with lobster salad and sweet mashed. Delicious! My daughters are always happy with the children's petite filet. Comes with fries and veggie of day. Cooked exactly how we asked. We passed on desert but know from past experience they always have something yummy for everyone! Mad Batter is great for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Crab cake sandwich is a must try!
We have dined at the Mad batter many times in past, for both breakfast & dinner. This was our 1st time there for New Year's Eve & , once again, it did not fail to disappoint! The fixed-price menu was great with a variety of options to choose from. Service was exceptional, as usual. The entertainment...live music with a guitarist/singer/harmonica-player...was fantastic. My husband & I had a fun time & would definitely return!!!
We arrived for an early New Years Eve dinner which was listed on the menu as a 4 course fixed price meal. We were not very hungry, so they let us split one meal- which gave us just the right amount of food with no leftovers. The price was reasonable for NYE and the food was excellent. Highly recommend.
My filet was overdone, mashed potatoes and asparagus lukewarm. After sending it back, steak was cooked properly but veggies still not hot.
Usual restaurant etiquette called for comp dessert or drink, but none offered.
I’d eaten at Mad Batter before and was satisfied. New Year’s Eve fixed price meal was disappointing.
We went for their NYE Special. Prefix 4 course menu. One price. Service was great and no rush to finish your meal. We were there close to 2 hours.
Food was over cooked. We normally love coming here but this wasn’t our best meal there. Steak over cooked and shrimp hard and chewy.
Very disappointed with the quality of the food - not what I remembered from my previous visits. The shrimp/scallop/ravioli meal was a joke - the waitress - Sue - told me there were 6 of each - my bowl contained 3 of each - very disappointing - especially for the price. My girlfriends twin filet meal was sub-standard. She said the filets tasted more like a bad strip steak so I tried it - if it was filet it was the worst I’ve ever had - and I’ve had many filets over the years. I won’t be coming back - there are plenty of other great restaurants in Cape May to patronize. You need to elevate your quality of food and level of service. p.s - the glass of cab I ordered tasted like a weak Pinot. Mis Pour?
Food and service was great!
Love the live music and art! Food is delish and the bartenders are amazing!
I love this place. I eat there every time I’m in Cape May.
The filet mignon I had was the best I've ever had!
The service and food was excellent at the Mad Batter! I definitely would recommend it for fun night out!
For the price it’s just meh. The ambiance is a choice between bar like or a bright colored diner-like front area.
Carol is awesome! And we were early for our reservation and technically, the kitchen wasn’t even open yet, but we were seated and made to feel very welcome. The food is always super fresh and delicious! Service, incredible!!
Compliments to the chef. The steak and cake was excellent. Lots of flavors exploding in your mouth. Also was pleasantly suprised how nice and warm it was dining on the porch in the winter
Mediocre food at a ridiculous price. It was so loud I nearly strained my voice trying to carry on a conversation across the table. After reading all the reviews I never thought we’d have such a terrible experience. We were very disappointed.
Never disappoints! Server great, host, Kay, always welcoming. Whether stopping in for a drink, dinner or just a dessert, Mad Batter always a sure thing.
I erroneously forgot my own reservation time showing up 40
late! The Host & Hostess were gracious and accommodating seating up within minutes! Been going to Mad Batter for brunch for 20+years, Ist time for dinner in ages, very pleased!
I enjoyed my gluten free ravioli and scallops. Our server was knowledgable and answered any questions I had.
It was great! Food was great
You never know what reviews to believe. Unfortunately, I have to confirm other reviews of the "championship crab cakes". Advertised as "jumbo lump", it was difficult to find ANY detectable crab meat. There were probably some tiny shreds of crab meat mixed into the mostly filler cakes. Admittedly it was off season, but if you can't deliver jumbo lump crab cakes, don't offer them. The mac and cheese was ample and tasty, as was the asparagus. There was a nice selection of craft beers, including many local, and all were pints. We were seated in the patio area, and although the plastic "window" did not insulate very well, there was enough warm air blowing into the room. Service was good, with no complaints. Overall it was disappointing, and I would not return for dinner.
Perfect meal for a special occasion. We wanted our out of town family to experience the best of Cape May, they were not disappointed! Live music, great service and the crab cakes were so good. It’s worth the trip.
We were staying at the hotel and had both breakfast and dinner at the mad batter. Both the service and food were excellent . Sat in the back dining room for dinner and was able to enjoy the music from the bar without it being to loud . I think it was a great value for the quality of food.
Made reservations in advance at least 6 days prior. Arrived early and had a beverage. Waited to be seated by Host and was going to seat us in the front ,brightly lit Formica tables. After much pleading and effort we were seated in the back. First timers, be sure to request the bar or dining room . The Host was rude and did not handle a simple situation and fix with a pleasant attitude. The hostess helped but attitude needs improvement as well . These 2 need better people skills and even some manners when dealing with people that are spending a decent amount of money for Dinner Our server was great however( From Mexico City ) and the food was exceptionally good. Great local place with all the vibes. Will go back.
The food was very delicious but was served to us at room temperature/cold. Service was very slow and it was obvious our food sat under the warmer for quite some time. First time to Cape May and read great reviews. Drinks and dessert were great!!
Had an excellent dinner last night at the Mad Badder. Our server was very good and very attentive.
We really enjoyed our dinner. Will be back again!
Everything was perfect The food and service were wonderful.
Diner atmosphere at fine restaurant prices. Obnoxious, loud diners. Staff could not move us to a better table because they said the main restaurant was taken by a private party. Looked mostly empty to us. Should have left. My filet and crab cake entree was very good; wife’s vegetable Wellington and an unusual clam soup were only passable.
Overpriced for mediocre food. The special was supposed to be seafood risotto but it consisted of 3 shrimp, two scallops, very little crab meat and was mostly very bland and lumpy rice and was $34.00.
This place is absolutely phenomenal. The entertainment is exceptional. The food glorious. The service perfect.
This restaurant never disappoints. It is amazing for breakfast as well as dinner. Very comfortable environment. Outstanding seafood risotto and crab cakes.
Mad Batter is always good, breakfast or dinner. Never disappoints
Very disappointed in our dining experience. I ordered the beet and goat cheese salad and the beets were canned beets. The chicken wings were the highlight of the apps. I wasn't even done eating my salad when our main course came and my son and husband had just finished their apps. The butternut squash ravioli was under cooked as was the ravioli in my son's dish.
Birthday dinner was excellent.
Mad Batter never disappoints! No matter what entree or dessert is chosen it is phenomenal. We went twice while visiting Cape May this weekend. Dan was our waiter the first night and Chris the next. Both very personable, professional and made my husband and I feel like we were the only guests. Highly recommend. We have been coming here for about 9 years.
