Cape May Restaurant
The Cape May Café, based on a New England seashore restaurant theme is found at Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club. We decided to try this restaurant at our friend’s suggestion. Having two children, we wanted to try something different, but not too formal and it seemed to fit the bill.
Deciding to make an evening of it exploring the area, we set off early evening on a gorgeous August evening, and headed for Disney’s Boardwalk to park. Parking is free and luckily it was not difficult to find a space.
After a leisurely stroll around the Boardwalk and exploring some of the resort hotels we made our way to Disney’s Beach Club and were advised there was a 45 minute wait for a table. With our bleeper in hand we used the time for some more exploration! The hotel had a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere and before we knew it our bleeper was flashing and our table was ready.
The restaurant is beach themed, with light and airy décor, pastel colours and surrounded by large beach umbrellas. It is described as a clam bake and seafood buffet
Our friendly server Daniel, showed us to our table, explained where everything was on the buffet and took our drinks order. After our drinks had arrived we made our way to the soup and salad section. There was a choice a two soups and a huge salad bar with various salads, pasta, seafood and dressings. I decided to get into the spirit of the restaurant and selected the clam chowder, while the others went for the salad bar – a meal in itself! The clam chowder was delicious, and hubby and children tucked into their salad selections happily.
Starters demolished we headed for our main course. As a seafood restaurant there is a huge selection of fish including clams (cooked a variety of ways), salmon, mussels and also meat dishes (for those not keen on seafood) such as a beef carvery, ribs and chicken, and a good selection of potatoes and vegetables. There is also a children’s section including the usual chicken tenders etc.
The food was very fresh and tasty, and is replenished all the time.
By now we were all full, but having seen the fantastic selection of desserts, had a rest before heading to dessert heaven, and were not disappointed! There were cookies, pastries and cakes as well as some mousse-type deserts, but we were really too full to make the most of them and had to surrender.
The meal for the four of us was reasonably priced, but be warned, alcoholic drinks are very expensive. It is also worth being aware that Disney may also put an 18% gratuity automatically on the bill. Our server was great and very attentive, so we were happy to pay this.
We will definitely return to Cape May, as the food was delicious and had something for all of us.
