Whether it be breakfast, lunch or dinner, we always love having a meal at the Blue Pig. The staff are alway pleasant, especially Natasha, who we had the pleasure of having her as our waitress. This time we were here for a late breakfast/ early lunch. My son and I had the eggs Benedict that were superb. Others had an... More

While visiting Cape May, we went to The Blue Pig for dinner. It was a very good meal. I will start with my one complaint about the meal, then I’ll get to everything that I enjoyed. I felt the restaurant was very dark, hard to read the menu. I know that’s the ambience but having to hold a candle to... More

If you get Flossie as a server, consider yourself blessed! As a vegan, I try to order items that are already on the menu. In this case I ordered pasta and veggies and Flossie came back to inform me that the pasta had egg in it. She and the chef worked it out and I received an excellent meal of... More

Not much ambience here. Couldn't even hear my date speak. Not gluten free friendly. My date enjoyed his dinner (not gluten free).

Great hamburger, fish ok, no big deal. LOUD inside. Fries over salted. We'll pass next time to Cape May, too many other great places to eat.

We had reservations and were seated right away, the host and wait staff were lovely. The soups, pasta with seafood and burger were all delicious. Unfortunately we were seated in a room with the most unbelievably loud family to ever go out to eat! The other patrons bonded over the experience, the staff apologized and comped coffee and dessert.

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.
