About The Blue Pig Tavern
Cape May, NJ 08204
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
We went for dinner on a Monday night - nice crowd - the restaurant is lovely - we were seated near the fireplace as I requested. Our server Flossie - made our night. She was so pleasant and efficient - our food was hot and our drinks were cold!! We hade a wonderful Valentine's Dinner, and look forward to returning.
Ambience was lovely...as was the service. We were a bit disappointed in the calamari appetizer. It was a bit gummy....breading not crisp enough. Butternut squash soup was very good. My husband ordered the meatloaf and was very disappointed - the flavors were not what was expected....tasted like it had chili seasoning in it. I had the beet salad and it was excellent. Loved the atmosphere in a cold February nite....our first time there so not sure if we would return. Our server was very nice and helpful.
Casual dining on weekend in which we were looking for a special Valentine's experience. Not exactly what we were looking for. Salmon was excellent and wait staff are friendly and helpful. Farm to table menu choices. Wine selection was good. Clam chowder was good but a little salty. Crab Cakes were OK. Porch was brightly lit and a little loud. Interior dining room appeared more intimate with better lighting.
Breakfast out! We ordered the Bacon and ham omelette with peppers, onions and cheddar! Served with homefries.
Also ordered the Blackstone hollandaise! Excellent with chopped tomatoes and wilted greens over bacon! My problem is i need eggs really poached ! When the runny whites are still clear - thats raw and i need a microwave!
I ordered the fresh fruit instead of potatoes with an up charge of $2. Nice, fresh and sweet!
Service was excellent.
It was a family get together - no young children. the booth was great and easily sat all five of us. Waitress was friendly and service was good. Four got a blue plate special which included a soup or salad and dessert. Value was good for Cape May. During the warm months, most of the food is locally sourced from their farm. Because the dining room is quite noisy it would be a place you could take well-behaved children.
Love the Blackstone breakfast! Cheddar biscuits with poached egg, tomato, wilted greens and the best bacon topped with a light and delicious hollandaise! They serve it with home fries but for $2. You can upgrade to fruit!
Great coffee, hubbie loved his crab and asparagus omelette! And the historic inn with the warm burning fireplace made breakfast cozy on this cold and wet Sunday!
Our server was Julie! She is Excellent. The best service we have ever had at this restaurant and we've been coming for 20 years!
We eat here several times a year. The service is always excellent. My husband had the beet salad which was excellent and the meat loaf which was good. I ordered the salmon which was prepared with a parm/herb crust. I thoroughly enjoyed the entree. The wood burning fireplace on a cold winter night also made he experience very nice.
We like to come to the Blue Pig for comfort food on a cold winter's night. The roaring fire and rustic setting make it a relaxed and easy-going spot. Last evening, however, we ordered the 16oz. prime rib and were surprised by just how good it was. The best cut of prime rib we have had in a long, long time!
This dining experience was very good. We were early on Dec 31, seated promptly and served by Sarah. She was attentive and understood our dining needs and what we may enjoy. She was even kind enough to provide additional veggies that I prefer in the seasonal mix.
This was my first experience at the Blue Pig Tavern, and I will definitely go back. The food, service, and atmosphere all made for an enjoyable night. Capped off the night with drinks in the Boiler Room downstairs, and it was a great night. Make sure you make reservations, we've tried to go before, and without reservations its hard to get a table.
