Cape May Restaurants

Indoor dining at the NJ State mandated 25% capacity is currently in effect. However, not all restaurants are offering an indoor option yet. Some have chosen to offer creative outdoor dining for the fall. And other restaurants have opted to close early this year.

Due to the ever-changing COVID-19 mandates, please call or visit the websites noted below for each business to inquire about current days/hours of operation. Thank you for your understanding!

Cape May Accommodations

All hotels, motels, bed and breakfasts, and guest houses in Cape May were able to reopen on May 28. This also includes any AirBnb rentals. After June 22, they were all operating at 100% capacity.

Cleaning Services

As business and property owners prepare for the reopening of Cape May, cleaning protocols and services will be more critical than ever. The Cape May area is serviced by many different national and local cleaning services. Before choosing one for your home, business, or rental, ask if they have a IJCSA Residential Cleaning Specialist Certification (RCS).

For all rental properties, current COVID-19 guidelines suggest the following:

  • Check-in time should be delayed by at least two hours to allow for comprehensive cleaning based on the CDC standards before a new guest arrives.
  • All pillows, blankets, comforters, and linens should be removed from a rental unit prior to guest arrival. Renters should bring these items with them to use during their stay.
  • Protective mattress covers should be used on all beds.


Most of Cape May’s breweries, wineries, and distilleries are open for outdoor seating, curbside pick-up and/or local delivery. Be sure to call ahead to place your order.
