    Nice place just over the bridge into town of Cape May. Hard to decide what to eat because quite a few things on the menu sounded wonderful. I chose a juicy grilled chicken BLT with added cooper sharp and my husband had the filet tip cheese steak which he really enjoyed. Our appetizers where wings and bacon wrapped scallops with a radish/beet dip. My husband and I added this place to our list of places we must return to, to try more things on the menu.

    This was our visit to Lucky Bones. On a Thursday evening, it was not busy at 5PM, but it was almost full by the time we left. We were pleased with the ambiance of the spacious dining room. There were many good choices on the menu. I loved the crab and shrimp cake sandwich. My husband enjoyed his filet tips cheese steak. Our plates overflowed with French fries. The best part, however, was the chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwich!

    Delicious food from burgers to more elaborate dishes. We had the crab-topped salmon special ($36) and grilled salmon ($28), it was excellent. The special was enough of a portion for 2 people. The drinks were nicely prepared with a beach-like presentation - about $12/each. While it's not inexpensive, the quality the food was excellent.

    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.

    I went to Lucky Bones a few weeks back with my daughter and her husband. They each had a special and I had a turkey dinner. We all enjoyed our meals and are looking forward to going back to eat there. There was a good sized crowd for a preseason Sunday. We were seated immediately. Being preseason they may have been a little short staffed but that did not seem to be a problem, our service was very good. The place is clean, the food was spot on and the staff/service were excellent. A must try place with reasonable prices.
