Planning a trip down to Atlantic City and a day in Cape May so I can use a recommendation for a lunch place in Cape May. Nothing over the top, but nice. Party of four - we like seafood, BBQ, steak, italian.

Suggestions apprecaited.

    We were just in Cape May last weekend. We Had lunch at the Fish Market on Washington Mall. Informal but top quality food. The lobster rolls are amazing.

      The Lobster House is wonderful if you want seafood. It's right over the bridge on the left when you enter into Cape May. It's located at the commerical fishing docks and the seafood is fresh! They have a more formal indoor restaurant, more casual outdoor "take out" widows on the dock and a market if you want to take some seafood home. I like to sit outside on the dock and order from the windows. They call your number when your order is ready.

        The oysters you get from the Raw Bar on the docks are from mid-Jersey. The ones in the restaurant/oyster bar (not sure about on the schooner) are Cape May Salts. I think the Cape May Salts are very, very good oysters.

        Lucky Bones (near the Lobster House on the other side of the road) does seafood, BBQ, steak, AND Italian.

          I would also reccomend Lucky Bones for BBQ.

            Also the North Carolina bbq at JBs. They relocated to a bank building in Rio Grande a few years back -- originally they sold through a bar along the back of Cape May -- but are also at the West Cape May farmer's market one day a week. And the scallops at Mayers, a divey fisherman's bar near the docks as you come into Cape May.

          Would definitely recommend YB's (younger brother of George's) on Beach Street for good, interesting informal modern Greek food. Quite inexpensive given the portions and very friendly. Would have gone back more than once during the week we were there if we had found it earlier. Would give it an edge over lunch mainstays like the more formal Blue Pig and and the informal McGlade's.
