Cape May

The Mad Batter

The Mad Batter Restaurant, located in the Carroll Villa Hotel on Cape May’s historic Jackson Street, is the recipient of many critically acclaimed awards and is considered the granddaddy of Cape May’s many fine restaurants. Come visit us and see the changes we have made, including our bar made with environmentally friendly materials and the newly decorated guest rooms.

Start the morning with our award-winning breakfast and come back for lunch and dinner! Dine on our front porch in-season, or stay in our skylit dining room or garden terrace. We are open year-round.
Browse through our art exhibits or join us for live music, showcasing some of the area’s finest artists. Enjoy half-priced drinks at Happy Hour daily from 3 to 6 p.m. A light fare menu is also available.

Also, we’ve gone green! The Mad Batter and Carroll Villa Hotel have implemented energy-saving and environmentally friendly changes, including 38 solar panels, an energy-saving dishwasher, bamboo floors, green cleaning products throughout the restaurant & hotel, low-energy lights, environmentally friendly paints, energy-efficient air conditioners, and a strict glass and paper recycling policy.
