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.

Random decision to eat here while in the area. Good beer list. Calamari appetizer was probably the best I've had in a while. not too greasy, very light. Perfect. Wife enjoyed her chicken pasta dish, I had the meatloaf. that was good except the sauce was little on the spicy side. I'd say the value for the menu was average. A little on the loud side, at least in our area. Our server was very nice, but the service was a bit slow with the crowd and the dinner show at the facility that night. Not a huge concern for us as we had nothing to get too. I'd definately want to try them again to see if that was hiccup or a real problem.

Always so nice inside. I requested to sit by fireplace and they did. The service was excellent. The atmosphere is lovely. The food is alway enjoyable. I like that they try to incorporate local farms!

Another outstanding experience for a late Valentines Dinner. We have dined inside and outside for brunch and dinner and have never been disappointed.

We had a great waitress! The food was good. It is a cute atmosphere but the noise level was a bit loud.

Love everything except the small seats on the ice cream parlor style chairs on the porch. Not comfortable especially for a man.

Been here several times, never disappointed. What the menu lacks, if anything, the service more than makes up.

Great Place! Employees are warm and welcoming from the time you arrive to the time you leave. Just wish the menu wasnt excessive with ingredients....Whatever happened to an original dish? Sometimes the ingredient tweeks and combinations make the dish less appealing, especially when 90% of the time people dont even know what they are.

Great meal, the food is really good. Had the crab cakes which were outstanding. Fresh oysters were very good, could have ate more of them! Only complaint which was not so bad but I felt we were rushed through our meal. I would definitely recommend this restaurant!

As always Congress Hall didn't disappoint. We came for breakfast and in the winter season it's one of the few serving later. Fire was crackling and it was very nice. If you haven't been, go. If you haven't been in a while, go back. Thanks CH!

It was a slow night so we were able to get seats at bar and never checked in for dinner in the dining room. Same delicious menu, great service, good wine, and live music on a Wednesday night in February. Doesn’t get any better.

We always enjoy dining at the Blue Pig, but especially when we get to have Flossie as our server! She is the best, ALWAYS so friendly, and we love seeing her.

It was supposed to be my birthday dinner but I was getting over the stomach virus going around. I had a ginger ale & a bowl of chicken soup: the most expensive sick dinner I ever had $12.50! The soup was ok. My husband at least enjoyed his meal. We were seated by the fireplace, as per my request, so that made it nice. Our server Flossie was very good.
