Jersey Shore with side trip to Chincoteague Sun, 07/6/03 10:38 AM (permalink)
We will be vactioning in Cape May NJ with a side trip to Chincoteague VA. We know Cape May pretty well, but would appreciate suggestons for breakfast and ice cream in the Cape May or Wildwood area.Since I have not been in chincoteague for 20 years ny suggrestions for that area or for along route 1 in Delaware south of Lewes as well as the Ocean City MD area would be appreciated.

    If you are familiar with Cape May, you may have already tried McGlades or Henry's on the Beach. Both are on the promenade, the view is great and the food is good.

    Another great view with good food is the breakfast buffet at the Pelican Club on the top floor of the Marquis de Lafayette...a little pricey at $9.95 per person, but worth it for a special breakfast (and you can skip lunch).

    New this year is Louie's (formerly Bodacious Bagels) at Beach Drive and Howard. They have traditional breakfast fare, but if you like sticky buns, Louie's are wonderful and they have very good crumb buns, too. You can eat on an outdoor patio with tables with umbrellas.

    On the way to Chincoteague, stop at the Dogfish Head brewpub on Rehoboth Avenue in Rehoboth Beach. Good food, great freshly brewed beers and ales.

      Cape May:
      Uncle Bill's Pancake House---right near Congress Hall. Delicious pancakes, always very crowded. Reasonable prices!

      Mad Batter---on Jackson Street. Upscale funky new American breakfasts. Expensive, but worth it every once in awhile.

      Oh and by-the-way---dinner at the Ebbitt Room in the Virginia Hotel was an incredible fine dining experience, worth a splurge! The Washington Inn is also very romantic and a good anniversary, special occasion type place!

        Bill's Seafood is a plain cooking sort of place, popular with locals, that has everything fresh from the boat - we always like it.

        AJs on the road toward Assateague is also good, more upscale- we remember especially the clams casino.

        The Wagon Wheel for breakfast is good. Also, one of the big places on the Canal has a good buffet breakfast we always liked - sorry, can't remember which place.

        If you like Crab Imperial (I don't, my wife does) the old Pony Pines used to have the best around.

        The Sea Bass is a four star restaurant, but I can't tell you anything about it because we have never made a reservation and eaten there.

        Lots of places have very good fresh on the halfshell oysters, and steamed oysters. If they bring you , which some places will, half frozen oyster, send them back or get up and go someplace where they treat an oyster with respect and open them right in front of you.

        Aunt Hatties used to be good - not sure its still there. Look for excellent Manhatan style clam chowder in Chincoteague - we've had some fine chowders there.

          A couple of my favorite stops in Ocean City:

          If you're a carousel fan, don't miss the 1902 Herschel-Spellman one at Trimper's Rides at 1st & Boardwalk. From there, it's just a few steps for some Thrasher's fries.

          Anthony's at 16th and Philadephia has great carved to order ham and roast beef sandwiches on hard rolls.

          Skip the food at Dumser's Dairyland (49th St.) but indulge in the delicious homemade ice cream.

          There are also some ideas on a thread in the Misc. Forum titled Beachfood.

            Go south a little bit to Painter, VA and eat at Formy's BBQ. Really good food and a little down home place.
