Restaurant Review

Few restaurants wear the Cape May casual spirit as well as Lucky Bone's Backwater Grille. 

This popular family restaurant, owned by Michael and David Craig, a popular Cape May restaurant family, is a departure from the many pricey Cape May fine dining restaurants as they specialize in serving up good quality, innovative dishes, that are well prepared with fresh ingredients ----- at a very modest price. 

It's one of the best, casual family restaurants in Cape May; serving up quality food that appeals to all ages at a reasonable price. 

The decor is attractive with rustic styling, and the atmosphere is energetic and often noisy. 

The restaurant is known for serving up healthy dishes. Desserts made on the premises to preserve the flavor and control over the unhealthy fat content. 

Some of the popular dishes include grilled Cuban-rubbed pork chop, crab and shrimp cakes, crusted brick oven thin pizza, baby back ribs, filet mignon and the Cape May Flatfish. 

They are open for lunch with a lighter fare and features a variety of burgers and sandwiches, grilled veggie burger with herb mayonnaise, as well as a few tasty salads. The shrimp salad sandwich is the best in Cape May.

It is family and child friendly.

During the peak hours, the restaurant can be noisy.

Lucky Bones is open year-round for Lunch & Dinner. Does not take reservations. Can be a long wait on busy Summer.
