Dine At Cape May's
Favorite Seaside Restaurant

Discover our re-imagined restaurant located in the heart of historic Cape May, New Jersey. From the relaxing front porch, to the classically comfortable bar and lounge with live piano music on weekends, the Ebbitt Room is strongly rooted in a farm-to-table, farm-to-glass dining philosophy featuring the freshest ingredients from our very own Beach Plum Farm.
Whether you're in the mood for cocktails or a multi-course dinner, you'll be delighted by a dining experience of artisanal cocktails and farm-fresh classic American regional cuisine. Our sophisticated, yet casual vibe, create the perfect setting for a new Cape May dining tradition. The Ebbitt Room offers a variety of vegetarian and gluten free dishes. As a farm-to-dining restaurant, we proudly feature free-range eggs and fresh herbs, vegetables and pork from our very own Beach Plum Farm located in Cape May. Try the Maine Lobster Caesar salad, a house favorite, followed by a surf and turf Steak and Cake featuring a petite filet mignon, a Jonah crab cake, duchess potato, carrots and a pink peppercorn sauce. Menu is subject to change based on seasonal farm ingredients.
