Is my restaurant eligible?

To participate in Restaurant Weekend, your restaurant should…

  • Be located in or near Cape May
  • Offer sit-down table service
  • Have a casual to fine-dining environment
  • Offer appetizers, entrees, and desserts on the regular menu

Designing your menu

All participating restaurants create a special menu for Restaurant Weekend. You control what’s offered and what rate your restaurant charges.

A Restaurant Weekend menu should include the following:


at least 3 choices


at least 4 choices


at least 3 choices
(or as many as you regularly offer, if you only have 1 or 2 on your menu)


Set your per-person price at $38 or higher.

Portions etc.

What you serve should be the same as what’s on your regular menu in terms of portion size, ingredients, and quality. Beverages, tax, and gratuity aren’t included in the flat rate unless you say otherwise.

Customizing your menu

Event pricing starts at $38 per person. If you want to offer extra value, customize your menu with upgrades like free coffee with dessert, or a complimentary side salad with each entree. You can also include a glass of wine or an extra family-style dish for the table.

If your menu varies from our standard format, we will clearly disclose that on the event website to avoid confusing diners.

Dates and hours of participation

You can participate all four days of Restaurant Weekend or pick specific dates (e.g. just Saturday and Sunday).

The Restaurant Weekend menu should be offered all night, each night you participate. You may limit Saturday night to 6:30pm. Let us know on your registration form.
