My husband and I went for dinner after walking out of a neighboring restaurant because of poor service. We waited for a table and had a drink on the front porch - which was a bonus! Although the hostess at the Ebbitt Room was a...More

We vacation in Cape May every year. But, we had not tried this 'better fine dining' restaurant. This year we did. It was pretty much a disappointment. The steak (flank, I think) was tough with a lot of gristle. Wife's salmon was just so so....More

I'm sorry to say, but the restaurant is not wheelchair accessible--all entrances to the hotel and restaurant require a short, half-flight of stairs to gain entry.
