My sisters and I dined at Hemingway's recently when we were in town for our annual overnight trip. We had a reservation for 6:30 but arrived at 6:15 and they were able to seat us no problem. We were pleasantly surprised to find out that they have an early bird special called Sunset Dining from 5-6:30 pm with several items to choose from, and it includes soup or salad, your entree and dessert, for $19 (regular menu prices range from $22-$39). 2 of us had the chicken parm and my other sister had the crab cake, and we all loved our meals. Our waitress, Svetlana, was very nice and very efficient. Given that Hemingway's is located in The Grand Hotel, a higher-priced hotel, we expected a quieter setting, and were again surprised (to our benefit!) at the Sunset Dining special, but be forewarned - if you come during that timeframe, you may be surrounded by families with kids, as we were. It may quiet down after that, but we were there until about 7:30 and it was still full and on the louder side. Don't let that keep you from trying it, though - we would definitely go back!

I have to give it 5 stars since the food and service was excellent. It is pricey..but so are most restaurants on Ocean Drive. Good selection of entrees and atmosphere is nice. Did not see a kids menu..but I am sure it is fine.

We came in after almost being caught in a horrible, quick thunderstorm. How to turn a day around with absolutely fabulous service from Siobhan, good food and atmosphere. We are never disappointed here. We are always greeted with smiles and quick fabulous service. Siobhan has waited on us before and really goes above and beyond to make sure you have all you need. Turned a rainstorm into sunshine. Thank you! :D

Hemingway's is a solid choice for dining in Cape May. The restaurant is located across the street from the beach and is very family-friendly. There is a kid's menu with a variety of standard options (chicken, cheese sticks). The breakfast buffet is vast and reasonably priced; there's something for everyone, and the bacon is cooked to perfection. Dinner options include prime rib and a very fine crab cake. The staff is friendly and efficient. The restaurant was also able to accommodate a large group of us (30 folks) in a private banquet room.

Hemingways is great. Sean Brown, the restaurant manager, and Valarie, the breakfast manager are incredibly professional, courteous, and genuinely kind and caring.

Sean goes above and beyond to take care of his customers, and Valerie makes us feel incredibly welcome in the morning.

Kudos...well done
