The Blue Pig Tavern serves American cuisine-nostalgic, simple and fresh. Executive Chef Jeremy Einhorn has implemented a delicious farm-to-table menu featuring fresh produce, herbs and eggs from our very own Beach Plum Farm, located less than 2 miles from the restaurant!

In the warmer months, dine on our wonderful, secluded patio. In the cooler months, cozy up to our magnificent dining room fireplace. The Blue Pig Tavern drives its name from a gambling parlor sited at Congress Hall in the mid 1800's. Earlier still, in the 1700s, Elias Hughes operated a tavern for whalers on this site. It was the first tavern in Cape May.

Dinner and service were excellent! My family and I were celebrating my husband's birthday on a very cold night. The Blue Pig was toasty and warm with the fire was blazing and everyone raved about their respective entrees. Our server was prompt, personable and helpful. We have dined there on a number of occasions and they never disappoint.

Very reliable kitchen and constantly friendly staff. The menu has a wide range of choices and often some interesting specials- last night was monkfish osco busco which sounded very interesting. I had the soup, grilled octopus and Beach Plum Farm salad. The humus was good and my wife enjoyed her bolognese. Wine list is varied with numerous price points. The fireplace is going and the pace of our meal was terrific, one plus of off-season at this popular resort. We appreciated how the manager, Will, checked in on us. We dine here at least monthly all-year and appreciate its attention to sustainable and local food sourcing.

No coat check, small tables, waited and then reminded staff to bring a condiment to the table, bread was stale, butter was fake, food was okay but not worth the price

I never complain about a restaurant, if I don’t like it, I just don’t return. My Husband and I stay at CH quite frequently, with our stay breakfast is normally included, all the staff here are always wonderful and pleasant, never a bad experience, but the BLue Pug Tavern just can’t get it right, not sure if its under staffed, but to wait 20 mins for a drink, another 15mins for your check!!!!we normally just have breakfast but as it was so cold we decided to have dinner here, same thing long wait before our server approached us, my husband who is very patient was ready to leave, drinks finally arrived, wrong order!!! Table next to us one entree warm other cold!!!Nice cozy restaurant, very nice staff, food was decent, but please get it together , maybe hire more staff at busy times

Expected a lovely romantic dinner . instead we were rushed and food was average .
Many families with young children , so this restaurant may be better suited for families .

We had drinks at the Brown Room and listened to the live music while waiting for our reservation. We asked to sit in the main room with the fireplace since it was such a cold night. Food was delicious and waitress was great! We will definitely be going back!

We were celebrating our engagement - Congress Hall offered such a nice NYE celebration for us! From dinner at The Blue Pig to live music - and ambiance was beautiful! What a memorable experience!

Not happy with Blue Big $200 plus dinner. Fatty steak was the absolute worst we have ever tasted here. Such a disappointment this year for New Years Eve.

The dinner for three was very good. Service was excellent.
We were seated right in front of the fireplace on a very cold
evening. Wonderful! The dinner was perfect for New Years Eve
as was our waitress.

My husband and I were there for New years's eve dinner. The main dining room was too dark to see the menu and to see what you were eating. My husband complained. The manager spoke to him, but my husband was beyond pleasing. The manager said to him, "I don't know what you want me to tell you". This, of course, infuriated my husband all the more. My husband sent back his fried calamari which was overdone and greasy. My scallops were too salty. Overall, my husband was very dissatisfied which ruined that part of the evening for me. Needless to say, that will likely be the last time we have a meal there.
