  • One of the best meals we had in years. It's rare when the perfect mix of food quality, portion size, and plating aesthetics exceeds expectation for everything that was brought to our table. As a harsh restaurant critic, I give this meal a 10 out of 10. We ordered the seared scallops as an appetizer, then the New York strip (cooked perfectly) with crab cakes and the Ratatouille for the entrees. For dessert an apple pie and peach upside-down cake. I would wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant and meal. Thank you for a great evening Blue Pig Tavern.

  • The food is great, the atmosphere is great, but the blonde girl that works in the front is rude horrible. We stayed here for two days and both days when we got breakfast she was weird and rude. We asked to sit by the fire because it’s FREEZING and she was sitting us at a table completely he opposite side of the room, so we asked well can we sit at this empty table closer to the fire, she rolled her eyes and was like “yeah” ... like really lol should probably get a better person to first greet people because it was a bad first impression.

  • The old architecture combined with a modern flare makes for an atmosphere that is the perfect blend of Victorian and Americana. The service was prompt and cordial. The food was a little pricey, but was certainly worth the cost when it comes to taste. There is also the added bonus that some of the ingredients are sourced fresh from a local farm. I would highly recommend checking out the Blue Pig if you are in the area.

  • Ehhh. The food was ok. It was not good enough to overcome the noise level. It was way too loud to have a conversation without yelling across the table. I find that with so many options in Cape May that have great food, one might simply come here for a drink or two before finding a better restaurant elsewhere.

  • Very disappointing. My steak was medium and definately nowhere near rare. Aside from that, the steak just wasn't very good at all and the veggies weren't even cooked the entire way. Just very disappointed especially for the price. Also they sat us alone inside in a scrappy area. I originally thought it was because we had kids but then we saw numerous others w kids get seated elsewhere. They didn't even ask us if we wanted to sit inside, they just stuck us there, right in front of the kitchen.

  • French onion soup with gruyère is about my favorite thing in the world. Then they go and have an entree...

  • By Richard on 06/11/2017 Excellent service and the food is very good. Of course the old school charm of Congress Hall makes this a great place for a meal. Monkfish was great.
  • By Ally on 08/27/2015 A must have for breakfast, get the "presidential" with the waffles with fruit on it. Great hot coffee with endless refills. Cutest place. Come for lunch too. Diner is overpriced. Blue pigs everywhere!
  • By Amanda on 06/22/2016 The place was slammed but we got seated inside right away. The service was great and the food phenomenal. I had the Scottish Salmon and I would recommend!
  • By Adriane on 07/22/2014 We walked right in & were seated at 7 PM. Contrary to other tips here, the service wasn't slow- Iulia was a great server! Try the meatloaf and the swordfish.
  • By Michael on 08/26/2011 Both service and food can be hit or miss - even during the same meal! Good: pancakes, eggs ben., French onion soup, fish n chips, convenience. Not good: Caesar salad, steak frites (for the $), service
  • By Carl on 08/06/2014 Eggs Blackstone for breakfast! Better than the benedict. Great place for breakfast. Spicy Marias were great too
  • By Ed on 07/21/2016 If they offer it when you're here, get the Zucchini Fritters off the appetizer menu. Amazing.
  • By Chris on 08/22/2017 FWIW, we called ahead to make sure that they could accommodate a gluten allergy, which they assured us they could. Different story when we actually arrived.
  • By Daniel on 06/20/2013 The Bloody Caesar (Bloody Mary with clam juice) and crabmeat omelette are amazing. Recommended!

  • By Anthony on 07/23/2010 Great breakfast, lunch and dinner. Try the crab cake sandwich at lunch and the scallops at dinner. Blue Pig Ale is a must.
  • By Jonathan on 07/05/2014 Trust me, get the Eggs Benedict on a cheddar scallion biscuit!
  • By Anthony on 03/20/2013 Drink lots of water, there's more salt in some of the dishes than in the ocean 2 blocks away...

  • By Lisa on 04/14/2016 Service is awesome. Atmosphere fantastic
  • By David Eric on 01/15/2012 Might be a tad slow on the food getting to the table side of things, but wait staff are polite and smile a lot! Gourmet it's not.

  • By Angela on 07/09/2014 Impossible to get service. Sat for 20 minutes then asked the hostess to send someone over and she said right away. They never came. They weren't even busy. I got up and left that's just ridiculous.
