Restaurant Review

Aleathea's restaurant is a long time favorite that offers turn-of-century style, "Old World" dining ambiance and charm

Aleathea's has its charm. The dining room is spacious, with Old World ambiance, adorned large chandeliers, tables set with lines, and fine china.

On the wraparound porch, you can sit in a rocking chair for drinks while you wait for your table or just relax to enjoy the end of a day while watching the sunset.

Executive Chef Tai Menz presides over a well prepared traditional American menu with some dishes prepared with organic, local sourced products. They also offer gluten free selections.

Chef Menz is also the owner of the Cape May Organic Market where the organic and gluten free ingredients are sourced.

There is live piano music on Saturday and Sunday nights during July and August.

During the summer months there is dining on the outdoor patio, across the street from the beach.

The restaurant is child friendly.

How Do We Review (analyze) Restaurants?

New Jersey Leisure Guide strives to provide objective restaurant reviews .

The methodology used is research, analysis driven --- as opposed to that of a single restaurant critic or a viewer comment posting board.

Data is gathered from our viewers e-mail restaurant comments, Internet research, and professional restaurant critics. The data is sorted, (weeding out the obvious biased, "bone to pick",  and out of consensus comments), analyzed, and the review is created.
