    Clams were tender... true little necks. Broth was amazing.Had the smash burger... two patties, high fat content, which, let's face it, makes them taste great. House made pickles were so good. Great burger.Friendly, attentive service.

    Fantastic experience! My family and I were up from North Carolina for vacation and tried this for dinner. Overall, our food was delicious! The most memorable part of this experience was the unmatched customer service provided by our server Chrissy. My mom got prime rib which was the special at the time, but when she received it, it was a little underdone for her liking. Once we told the server, she immediately offered to take it back to the kitchen or have the chef remake it. Chrissy insisted that she could have the kitchen remake my mom's order and then proceeded to take 25 dollars off of the bill. We will be back and this has been one of the best experiences I have had in a restaurant. I would 10/10 recommend it!

    Top three of my places to eat in Cape May. Some of my favorites include the bacon wrapped scallops, roast beat and goat cheese salad and the amazing skip Jack pizza.I am so glad they've started doing breakfasts. I tried them twice for it thus far, had the Benedict (which is the best on the island in my opinion; I quality control a lot of them ;)), and the beef hash. Both were amazing. Best breakfast in town.Service is amazing as well. Agnieszka provided fast, friendly service. Great with food knowledge, even better at recommending a beer to someone who has no idea what he wants. Even the other staff members say hello, wave, and are super friendly.Can't recommend this place enough.Cheers!

    Lucky Bones Back Water Grille is an amazing spot to grab a bite to eat while in the Cape May area! We love their soups, salads, and pizza, and drinks. Service is typically great, even when they are busy. Dinner time can usually be extremely busy here so we typically opt to have lunch here. The desserts are delicious as well.
