Dining at Congress Hall

As a guest of Congress Hall, you'll be just steps away from some of the most celebrated dining spots in Cape May. Head downstairs from your guest room to the Blue Pig Tavern, where you'll find hearty breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner favorites made using ingredients sourced three miles away at Beach Plum Farm. Or, try out a new pizza down in the Boiler Room, our vibrant underground pizzeria and music club.

Reservations Required

Due to the limited amount of seating available for dining in Cape May this season, we highly recommend our guests make reservations in advance — for restaurants at Congress Hall and around town.
