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
Reservation was for 5 @ 8:45PM. Our apps took very long. When the meals came 2 of them were incorrect. We had one sent back and took about another forever 25 minutes to get back. Just simple requests for condiments, steak knifes and drinks seemed to take a long time getting to us. Not going back for sure due to this poor service. Meals were just okay. My NY Strip Steak was tough. Definitely not worth the extra money you pay for the location. One and done!
Had Saturday brunch -- I am generally ambivalent abut this restaurant, but during the summer, they have a great tomato menu as well as weekend brunch (basically both a lunch and breakfast menu until 3. The location, in the Congress Hotel is wonderful. The hotel has great ambiance and history.
This farm-to-table restaurant in an historic hotel (since 1816) has good food, a great beer selection, is bright and airy with a nice patio, and a nice historic ambiance. The salads are great as is the house ale. I'd recommend it to anyone who like farm-fresh food or who appreciates history. At least 3 US Presidents visited the hotel (Pierce, Buchanan and Grant!)
We eat here regularly and typically the food and service is great. While the service was consistent as always, the food was not. I got the crab cake dinner and their crab cakes are very good in my opinion. They changed the mustard glazed potatoes that come with this dinner to some sort of sliced red potatoes which were not fully cooked and tasted awful. I asked to replace this with a side of mashed potatoes and they tasted like they had a pound of. Uttermuxed in. I didn't like that all. Also, this meal comes with cabbage slaw which surprisingly was really bland and they provided so little, you couldn't consider it a side.
This was our 3rd visit to The Blue Pig restaurant. It was a meal while on vacation. The vegetables mostly grown on their own farm are delicious and I'm sure highly nutritious. The steaks were perfectly cooked and highly prime cuts. The bar service was also worth noting.
My husband and I have been coming here for many years. The food is consistent and wonderful. My first time having a hamburger and I can tell you I've never had anything like it. The beef is so fresh and this place has their own farm, so you know the meat is sensational. Highly recommend next time you're in Cape May.
Great food but for the second time in a row bring here we had the worst service . Literally saw our waitress once . Whole heartedly believe she forgot about us, but since this is the second time this has happened at this restaurant I believe that it's not the individual server but the restaurant asking too much of their servers and giving them too many tables. Sad though, great food.
Lovely cozy space for dining indoors or outside. Outstanding variety of menu selections. We ate late evening, so food was cooked quickly and expertly. Calamari was best we ever had. Vegetables were very flavorful with their own garden's home grown selections. Would definitely visit again!
Our first visit to the Blue Pig was during Cape May Restaurant Week. Sometimes restaurants struggle during those special weeks but the Blue Pig did such an amazing job that I brought my aunt and sister for a girls lunch. Again, the food was exceptional. The service wasn't as good as our first visit but still very nice. Looking forward to another visit
My wife and I visited here after a day at the beach. The cape may IPA on draft was very good. She ordered a salad and calamari while I ordered steak and cake. Everything was cooked perfectly and we had a nice time. They even moved us indoors when it started to rain.
Always make sure to reserve. They are always booked.
Food was great. Our server was very attending to the fact that we were there with a 3-year-old and brought his food out super fast to keep him busy (at our request). The kids meal includes dessert, so that kept the kid busier even longer. Noise level was perfect to cover th occasional whining. Seafood pasta dish was well balanced and not heavy (which sometimes is at other places).
