Welcome to
The Blue Pig Tavern

Gather at the Blue Pig Tavern, our distinctive restaurant tucked in the corner of Congress Hall. Known for hearty breakfast, lunch and dinner favorites, its name derives from a gambling parlor sited in Congress Hall in the mid-1800s. Earlier still, in the 1700s, Elias Hughes operated a tavern for whalers on this site. It was the first tavern in Cape May. Today, we offer timeless classics and new seasonal delights with ingredients that are always farm-fresh.
The Blue Pig is excited to offer dining in our beautiful outdoor spaces. Reserve your table for breakfast, lunch or dinner and dine al fresco, either on our breezy outdoor porch, or—new this year—on the beautiful Veranda of Congress Hall.
