About The Blue Pig Tavern
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.

The Blue Pig Tavern Ratings and Reviews

The menu was very limited and small, something called the Blue Pig Tavern should not have so many fish selections on the menu. The night was crowded and Christmas in the air but it lacked the happy atmosphere I was expecting.
The server had way to many tables for this kind of night
My daughter didn't touch her food and he never asked why?
Fish and chips were good but her turkey burger was not.
I will try it again only because in the past service and food was better but please change the menu.

We made reservations luckily, the entire area was packed on the weekend. Good menu for families, different take on traditional dishes. Food was very good and service was great. Don't let the entrance cause any concern. The restaurant is located in an historic hotel and getting through the lounge can be a challenge.

HAd an very good dinner on Saturday night of the WCM Christmas parade. We were seated promptly, were a few mins late due to trouble parking/parade. I have never before been seated in the "banquet" room ( Harrison?), but I can understand adding that space onto normal BPT seating on such a busy night. However, the ambience was disappointing, and not festive.. While the BPT tavern was glowing with Xmas light s and garlands, the lighting in the Harrison room was extremely bright ( seriously is there no dimmer in there?) .I was waiting for someone to start a power- point on a drop down screen! There were large poinsettias on the windows, that hadn't been watered in days, and a single large candle on the table that we had to move , as it was overpowering on a 4 top. I did observe 2 other couples come in to be seated--looked around at the atmosphere-- and put their coats on and left. The food was well-prepared, fresh, enjoyable , and our server ' Lili" was very pleasant and efficient. I really wouldn't have minded being seated in this type of room-( large parties and small children abounded)-- if the ambience was in keeping with the rest of CH , and the many other Cape MAy restuarants that provide a lovely Holiday atmosphere.

Off season Tuesday allowed us to sit in front of the fireplace on a gloomy morning. Even though the dining room was empty the service was on point. Had the congressional and the breakfast sandwich, both yummy and eggs cooked perfectly. Latte was also steaming hot. The fruit side was big enough for two and it was full of ripe berries.

Consistent and excellent every time! Flossie I believe was our server and she was awesome and remembered us from last year. The scallops were the best I've had and the skate special was equally wonderful. The special arugula salad, I ate the entire portion, which I never do since I am not a salad person. Service was fantastic. Can't say enough good things about the Blue Pig.

The Blue Pig is our go to spot for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The food is always very good and the menu is sure to please everyone. Drinks are creative and beers are cold. The fireplace is beautiful. The Blue Plate Specials are a great value.

I have been coming down Cape May and staying at the Congress Hall for at least 8 years. Never disappointed with the stay or the food. Will continue coming. Have always told friends to stop in and have a drink and good food.

We arrived on Sunday and just made it for lunch. We Ended up eating every meal, breakfast, lunch and dinner, at the Blue Pig! I'm usually more adventurous than that, but a lot of places in town were closed for the season. I particularly enjoyed the zucchini fritters and the sword fish. The breakfast was also outstanding and served until noon. Highly recommend and intend to go back.

I've been to the Blue Pig Tavern on 3 other occasions. I do not plan on going back. We had a party of 6 and all of us were disappointed in the experience. Five of the six have been there before and said they will not return. The food was fine. The service was not. For starters we were put at a table near an outside door that was constantly being opened and then would take a long time to close. My husband complained about it being chilly but nothing was done. He eventually ended up eating his entire meal with his coat on. Also, patrons wishing to seek out the hostess were standing in a line which encroached on our dining area. It was truly a bad spot to put a table and we were the unfortunate party that was seated there. We were in Cape May celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary and thought the Blue Pig Tavern would be the perfect dining spot to do so; however, we were wrong.

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at The Blue Pig Tavern. The food was excellent, the atmosphere was warm and friendly - and the service was very good. We have been looking forward to trying this restaurant, and we will return soon!

On Tuesday 10/11/16 we ate at the Blue Pig. We had eaten there a few times before . Everything was fine except we think you overbooked. We were literally wedged in between two couples with a few inches to spare. It was uncomfortable to say the least. When the food came out it was cool instead of hot. Obviously our experience was not good. The other times we ate there it was entirely better. So sorry but this past visit was not good for us.

Our's was a party of four. We arrived early and got a table near the open hearth. The staff was very attentive and the food was very good. Most of it is farm to table from the local Beach Plum Farm. I would highly recommend The Blue Pig.

Every year, we go to Cape May for our anniversary and one of our favorite spots is The Blue Pig. This year, once again, the food was amazing. The service was fine, but not as attentive as in the past, but these are minor quibbles. It is a fantastic place and I already can't wait for next year.

My husband and I went for our anniversary. When we got there it was very loud, very dark and although the dining room was fairly empty sat right next to another couple. Our waiter was ok. My meal, meatloaf, was wonderful. My husband had the steak and cake and was not impressed with either. The drinks were good, but the noise level was what ultimately made it unbearable. We couldn't have a conversation, let alone a private moment, and got our check within 45 minutes of our arrival. It was not the anniversary Dinner we had anticipated.

We love Blue Pig, and this last visit was particularly fabulous. We got the macaroni and cheese starter -- an indulgence I never do -- and split it four ways and everyone was in heaven. Our guests were delighted with their entrees. Wonderful!
