Nice atmosphere. Casual. But above all the food was great. Our waitress was very attentive and as far as pricing goes it didn't break the bank. Well worth the visit

Visited Cape May between Christmas and New Year's to see the beautiful lights and do the Lamplighter Tour. It was cold and rainy so soup was a must and Cape May Fish Market didn't disappoint with hearty chicken soup. It seemed home made - not from a can - and the chicken salad was fabulous, too.

This was our first visit to Cape May Fish Market. We had the lobster special and everything was great. Rolls, salad, lobster veggies, potato. Everything was top notch. We will be back. It was the special of the day and everything was included for a very reasonable price.

Six of us stopped in for lunch. It is a small-ish restaurant with booths and tables for 2 or 4. There is also outdoor seating. There is one booth that fit the 6 of us. This is a byo as well. But they do have a few wines that must be purchased by the bottle. They were reasonably priced. We... More

Every time I visit Cape May with my wife and friends, the Cape May Fish Market is always our farewell meal. This is a cool place to eat lunch or dinner with wide selection of seafood dishes to choose from. My favorite is Lobster Mac n cheese!! Cooked perfectly, priced right and a boat load of lobster. Very tasty!

The best lobster roll in Cape May. Served on a nice bun with warm butter to pour on to it. You can share it if you are not that hungry but if you are, go for it.

After being displaced from our OBX vacation due to hurricane Matthew we came to Cape May. First time had the 6 shrimp appetizer. Shrimp were so big and so delicious! Also had the lobster Mac and cheese, to die for! So good went back again!

Good location right on the mall, decent service, average food. BYOB (except for bottles they sell from a local winery).

Thank James K
