Restaurant Review

Menz restaurant is one of the best family dining experiences in the Cape May/Wildwood area.

Looking for a more affordable family restaurant with good food? Venture 15 minutes over the bridge to the mainland to Rio Grande.

This is a place the kids will love. The decor is old and a little funky. It's decorated with stuffed two headed animals, and cluttered with antiques and memorabilia from a past era.

A great place for celebrating a kids birthday. They provide a cake of your choice with singing, balloons, and a stuffed animal or a toy.

After the kids finish their dinner, visit the candy store inside the restaurant where they sell all kinds of old time and modern candy.

While not gourmet dining, the quality of food and the value is a step above the many nearby Wildwood area restaurants that cater to families with kids.

The menu contains a large variety of traditional American selections along with their signature seafood & steaks.

The service is very friendly and attentive.

While waiting for a table, they have a bar where you can be seated, have a drink, and listen to live band music.

Menz Restaurant has a very good kids menu with a variety of selections that include chicken fingers, a shrimp pail, and the hot diggity dog with accompaniments.

During the month of October they do an excellent job of decorating the restaurant for Halloween.
