Beloved by locals and visitors alike, there is no better place to enjoy classic American comfort food. Tucked in the corner of Congress Hall that fronts on Congress Place and Perry Streets, its name derives from a gambling parlor sited in Congress Hall in the mid-1800s. Earlier still, in the 1700s, Elias Hughes operated a tavern for whalers on this site. It was the first tavern in Cape May. In the warmer months, dine in the wonderful garden area. In the cooler months, cozy up to their magnificent dining room fireplace or try out their new enclosure. Executive Chef Jeremy Einhorn has implemented a delicious farm-to-table menu featuring fresh produce, herbs and eggs from our very own Beach Plum Farm, located less than 2 miles from the restaurant! In the morning, try a freshly pressed juice from the new juice bar located on the veranda of Congress Hall. Or pick one up from Tommy’s Folly Coffee Shop!
