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 atmosphere as you enter the lobby is chaotic, as people from surrounding areas of the hotel are bustling about. The teenage hostesses seem overwhelmed.
We had an 8:45 reservation and about seven items on the menu had sold out.
The drink I ordered was not to my liking, but was told 'that was the way they made it', no offer to just fix it it the way I wanted.
The food was expensive, but just average.
Would not recommend.

My wife and I dined here for the first time on our last Cape May trip. This was our second choice for the evening but we were both pleasantly surprised. We ate inside and had a great experience. The decor is beautiful. The menu is varied and excellent. I had the pork shank and could not been more pleased. Will definately put this on our return list.

The scallops were excellent. Although the rest of the food was mediocre at best, the manager Marc was excellent and totally made up for it. This is the first time in three visits where we had issues with the food. Because of Marc, we'll be back.

Food was good as always, room temperature was extremely hot, however, the outside temperature was almost 100, but understandable. Service was extremely slow, waiting a long time for everything. We've been here before and had much better service.

I have been here several times before and always had a great experience. This time, we waited 20 minutes for a server...it was 40 minutes total from the time I was seated until I got a diet coke. My wife and I went to Cape May for the weekend and were excited to go back to the restaurant but were disappointed. The food, however, was fantastic as always. So, we will be back again and just hope for better service next time around!

Have eaten here several times. Its a Cape May landmark and has that going for it. Food is ok, not bad, not great. Mac and Cheese was really good. Food from time of order to table is slow, always has been. Its a busy place and it was a Friday night in the summer so unreasonable to expect anything less.
Waiter was outstanding!!! Service often is an individual thing and certainly hit a home run with our server this night. He as great about refills, updates, just everything. Well done.

Best Reuben in Cape May. Wonderful tomato sandwich featuring ingredients grown at their own Beach Plum Farm. Enjoyed a reasonably-priced, hearty Beefeater and Tonic indicative of a bygone era, one which Congress Hall and The Blue Pig Tavern clearly embrace. Superb service highlighted by an attentive, knowledgeable waitress and welcoming hostess staff enhanced our afternoon.

Lovely, if a little on the pricey side, spot with a big dollop of history and an extra helping of charm. The menu offers classic options with enough fresh twists and/or fresh farm ingredients to satisfy a diversity of palettes and cravings.

Service was very good, we were seated at our reservation time, we ordered Ceviche which was so fresh and delicious! Beets and goat cheese were good in the salad, not crazy about the sugared pecans. My hubby loved the Bolognese, I should have ordered the Scallops which were the special, but I tried the Salmon. It was served on a hash which was overcooked and the Salmon cooked at their recommendation, was dry and not appetizing. If you stick to the specials you should be OK. The Ceviche and the great Service saved the day!

Lunch was horrible. I had Mako sandwich snd it was over cook and dry. Waste of money.
Dinner Service not very good. Asked for water 3 times. Hanger steak was not very good.
Would never recommend eating there . Fourth year at Cape May and there are better places to eat

The food exceeded expectations. The seafood specials (crab risotto and scallops) were outstanding. The produce from the local farm added to all the dishes including the tomato mozzarella and watermelon salad appetizers. Highly recommended.

We spend a lot of time in Cape May and had never had dinner at The Blue Pig. On a recommendation, we tried the restaurant. Found the food to be just okay, not at all what we expected for those prices. Lettuce in salads was soggy, and we should have returned the salads. Two of us had steak, and the meat was tough & chewy. Have no intention of ever returning to this restaurant.

a forgettable and expensive crab cake entree that was breaded fried and had little crabmeat. Description on menu didn't say it was breaed and fried. Disappointing and $32.00 for the entree. I will not be back anytime soon.

The worst service in all Cape May! If you don,t mind the service, the food is good which make it sad that the service is so bad. They bring you your main course when you are still eating the first one....the waiter didn't communicate at all with his busboy, we had our wine about 10 minutes after the appetizer... But if you don't mind that, go the food is good!

First time here. Loved it. Arrived 11:30 and elected the breakfast menu. My wife was thrilled. Exactly what she wanted. Stuffed French Toast. I had eggs and grits. Great location and atmosphere in this 200 year old facility. Combined with a spectacular spa experience for her, then a day around town for shopping. Definitely will return.

Seemed to be issues with the service staff. Our Waiter was really working hard, but had no support with getting water refills, table cleared, etc. Staff was not supporting each other which was detrimental to the dining experience.
