FAQs

Cape May Restaurant Week and Cape May Restaurant Weekend offer fixed-price dining. For a flat price, enjoy your choice of appetizer, entree, and dessert from a special menu. Portions and ingredients are representative of what the restaurant usually serves.

Beverages, tax, and gratuity are not included, except where noted.

Participating restaurants agree to offer at least three appetizer and dessert options, and at least four entree options. Should a menu offer fewer entrees than the minimum, we’ll clearly indicate that on the restaurant’s page.

Some restaurants only have two dessert options on their standard menus to begin with, so you could find a menu with a short dessert selection.

Due to the current high food costs, menu pricing is set by individual restaurants. The per-person price will be noted on each page.

This is not a ticketed event, though we recommend reservations where available.

To take part, visit any of our participating restaurants during the event. Dates and times are posted on individual restaurant listings. You’ll be presented with the event menu when you’re seated. You shouldn’t need to ask for the event menu.

Since our restaurants plan their menus based on fresh ingredient availability, menus are generally available two weeks before the start of the event. We post them as they are submitted to us by the restaurants.

In a normal year, Cape May Restaurant Week takes place around the first week of June, and Cape May Restaurant Weekend over a weekend in November.

Other people in your party are free to order off of the regular menu if they don’t want to take part in Restaurant Week. You can also supplement the event menu by ordering additional appetizers, desserts, and drinks.

If a restaurant should require everyone to participate, we will clearly disclose that on their page.

Not all Cape May restaurants offer online reservations. We provide links to ones that let us know they do!
