We have not been to the Captain’s Grille, but we have been to the Cape May Cafe.
The tables are covered with white paper and children (including my husband) :laugh: are given little buckets of crayons to keep them busy while waiting for their dinner to come.
The food is not gourmet but it is very good.
Dinner is set up like a buffet in the shape of a square: one side is fish, one side is meats and sides, one side is vegetables and one side is desserts (our favorite).
It is a lot of food for the money and you won’t go back to your hotel hungry.
Hope this helps, we have been there at least four times and plan on returning in july 2009.
