I feel like I'm sitting out on my back patio. There is lovely grass to lie down on, plenty of umbrellas to get out of the shade, my parents LOVE the big drinks in Mason Jars, I get free water and sometimes a Scooby Snack gets slipped my way!! Woof, I love to sit and listen to the music! Butch the Boxer

We've love bringing our two standard poodles to this bar/restaurant. It's a great way to spend the day with our pups while hanging out with our friends. They have made friends with many different dogs over the years, as dogs of all size are welcome. The staff is friendly and welcoming of pets. Our pups love the strawberry smoothies! All natural and a great way to cool off on a hot summer day!

"The Nail", as it's know by the locals, is the famed iconic surfer bar and restaurant that made a name for itself in the 70s. And it’s right here on the grounds of The Beach Shack. From lifeguards and surfers to the beautiful beach bunnies, they all gathered around the wood bar that was rumored to be the longest in all of Cape May. Now it’s your turn to join in on the fun-for breakfast, lunch, dinner or the famed happy hour. Indoor spaces spill into outdoor seating, sand bar, fire pit and shuffleboard. Dogs are welcome at our outdoor picnic tables.

Only open in the summer and late fall - the outdoor seating at the Lobster House lets you bring your dog with you if you sit at an outdoor table on the dock. We were nervous about bringing our two large dogs but when one of the waitresses ran outside with dog biscuits, we knew we were okay. The food is casual but good. The seating is nothing great (plastic chairs) but you're on the water albeit surrounded by fishing boats. We had excellent crabcake sandwiches (very little filler) and a very good fried vegatable appetizer platter which our dogs enjoyed sharing. There was one other dog (a lab) a couple of tables down but he mostly ignored us and we mostly ignored him. I heard his owner say she brings him here all the time. We went in September on a weekday and we had most of our area to ourselves. It is self service - you put your order in and they call you to come get it on the intercom when it is ready. Our dogs enjoyed a lot of attention from passersby. Ditto for the Ferry Ride from Lewes to Cape May. You can bring your dogs but you have to stay outside or in your car. If you stand on the second deck, you will inevitably have dog lovers (who have nothing much to do on the one hour ride) surrounding your dogs with affection.

This restaurant is owned by a dog owner & they go out of their way to make visiting dogs & their owners comfortable. Dining is on an outside, waterfront patio adjacent to a waterside bar. The menu consists of gourmet to burgers. The soups are out of this world & the desserts to die for...not to be missed. I dined with my dog (and human friends) & had a wonderful time. They offer vegan & gluten free meals, they buy from local farmers & the location is in a village of great little shops. A place to visit very soon!
