Hello, my loves! I’m here with a restaurant first impression, kind of! The Lobster House is a seafood restaurant located on the Cape May Marina. One thing that instantly drew my attention was the colonial American atmosphere. We went here to eat after whale watching.

The Lobster House does not take any reservations, which is lovely if you’re making last-minute plans at the shore for dinner or lunch. They serve lunch and dinner, with lunch lasting from 11-3 pm and dinner lasting from 4:30-9 pm. Everyone had to stand in the bar waiting for the staff to finish cleaning up after lunch, but it’s worth the wait.
The Lobster House: The Bread
We were finally seated at around 4:30 pm and were treated to some herbed bread and butter.
The bread was very good-I could taste the garlic and other herbs in it, and it paired very well with the butter.
Here is what I had to eat…
- Creamy clam stew (which is essentially clam chowder)
- Fried vegetable medley consisting of deep-fried tomatoes, mushrooms, and onion rings
- Crab fingers (crab claws that have been pulled apart) served with mustard.
We also ordered a baked potato, zucchini, and soft-shelled crab on toast.
For dessert, we had milkshakes (one non-alcoholic one for me, one with Kahlua for my mom and aunt)
On the outside, there were replicas of the boat that they use to catch all their ingredients and the largest lobster they’ve ever caught (The Lobster House also comes with its very own fish shop where they sell fresh fish and shellfish).
Overall, it was a very lovely restaurant and experience, and I’d give it an 8/10 for the wait time.
