The Ugly Mug has always been the first stop after getting settled in Cape May. Frozen Pina Colada, snapper soup, shrimp burger and soft shell crab sandwich were the favorites. This year there is no soup or soft shell crabs. Our food

There is reason to be happy at the mug. They have great bar food, the wait staff works hard to get you what you need and .... if you hang around at night... small but fun music scene. Im a 40 year frequenter of Cape May..... the Mug is the best bar in town... It's also great for a quick lunch while beaching. Remember you're on vacation... a couple cold ones and back to the sun.... it makes the vacation a real vacation.

STOPPED IN TO WARM UP ON A COLD JANUARY AFTERNOON. COFFEE WAS COLD. EVEN MY WIFE WHO DOESN'T DRINK HER COFFEE HOT HAD TO SEND THE COFFEE BACK TO BE WARMED UP. THE CLAM CHOWDER WASN'T HOT, LACKED CLAMS BUT HAD LOTS OF UNDERCOOKED POTATOES.

I remember Cape May when all the Victorian houses were run down and painted only ONE color and even before the mall was built. The Ugly Mug was a neighborhood bar - still is - REAL people REAL food, GREAT musicians - some of which went on to Nashville! If you want to experience the ESSENCE of the OLD Cape May - eat here and come to the bar after 9 for drinks and great live bands.Have the fried chicken - to die for! And quit complaining about the service - the servers are college kids working their tails off to make a couple of bucks over the summer. You want "healthier" food? The Mug is a pub - you're going to eat "pub" food - DUH. If you're too "high-flouting" for "down to earth" then eat at the Washington Inn. I can guarantee that you'll be happily bored.

One of Cape May's oldest pubs located at the Washington Street Mall. They offer a great selection of appetizers from clams on the half shell to mini tacos. A speciality is the "Ocean Burger" which is a burger topped with shrimp and cheddar. Good stuff. Bar is a local hangout and gets crowded in the summer.

All the sea captains who used to come here had there own mug which was turned in a different direction from the others hanging on the ceiloing if the captain did not return from sea. Delicious burgers and chowder. Prices have increased considerably, no longer cheap bar food.

I absolutely love Cape May & a trip there is never complete without a visit to the Ugly Mug.

It's a nice bar located right in the main hub of Cape May. The staff is always friendly & you truly feel like you're part of the crowd when you're here.
