The Blue Pig Tavern serves American cuisine-nostalgic, simple and fresh. Executive Chef Michael Greenstein 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.

I had the cod and potato cake special. It was so bland even tarter sauce didn't help! The pasta needed more flavor and more sauce. Scallops were better. Good service though.

the Turkey burger was excellent!! My house drink bourbon (Makers Mark) cherry sour was A+. My only complaint is that the drink was so good and easy to drink that I had two, which for someone who had not had a drink in a few months caused a headache - small price to pay for a wonderful dinner!

Hands down this is our favorite place in Cape May. The food is always great, no matter what time of the day we go. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. The staff from the hostess, "Kit" who always is so plesant upon your arrival until your departure, to the servers, Alyssa and Julie who are always on point with there customers. Today we had the pleasure of meeting Chef Joey who we know is responsible for cooking up all those great dishes. I'm sure if he is leading your cooks, there is no room for disappointments, as we are always pleased. Shout out to your employees they are truly amazing and an asset to your establishment. Just so you know, It is an hour drive from where we live to your establishment, we can honestly tell you it's well worth it. Thank-you and keep up the good work.

We had a wonderful dinner at The Blue Pig tavern.
We read in a local magazine that the bartender was an expert at crafting some notable cocktails. We found out that that was correct.
The Bees Knees is an historic gin-based drink, and the Honey Bee is a tequila special that was excellent. Right here you should know that the service was gracious, knowledgeable and comfortable all night.
We sampled appetizers, salads and some seafood entrees, and everything was very good. We hardly had room for dessert, but shared their famous apple pie dessert, and it was really worth it.
You can't go wrong here.

10 ladies joined up for a Sunday brunch after a nice weekend, and we really enjoyed our experience. The blue pig has a really great, unique atmosphere. The food was delicious. I recommend the stuffed French toast! The service was also good. After our meal, it was an easy few steps to all of the shops of downtown Cape May, which is super convenient. Overall a must if you’re going to Cape May.

The food and service were very good. The overall experience was diminished because the hostess seated us in a section of the restaurant already filled with diners. There seemed to be open seating in another area. Given the close proximity of the other tables, it seemed like we were sharing our dinner with the other diners.

My husband I went on a cold weekday night and sat by the wood fireplace. Our server was great. We had a bottle of wine and I had the crab cakes and my husband had the steak and cake. He said his steak was done to his liking and very good.
One criticism I have is the crab cakes had a lot of filing and were fried. In a shore community I think they could do better. I order Crab cakes everywhere and with just some good crab and seasoning and broiled they could be outstanding.
