The Country Club Tavern: Restaurant Review Of A New Jersey Hidden Gem
A hidden gem in Cape May Court House, NJ
What a find!
Let me begin by saying, The Country Club Tavern was not our first choice for lunch. I was planning a trip to the Cape May Zoo in Cape May Court House, NJ. I normally use Yelp, to find a place to eat. We were looking for a bar/restaurant..something casual with local beers and good food. Our first choice was Atkinsons Tavern, but after traveling on scenic Route 9 looking for it with no luck, we spotted The CCT!!
Grilled Chicken Sandwich at The CCT!
My dining partner and I were seated immediately and our server arrived promptly with menus and a list of the daily specials. I opted for a local beer from The Tuckahoe Brewery and she ordered a Mikes Hard Cranberry. Its nice for an establishment to offer local brews, it shows that they are in touch with the local community and pay attention to our needs. The menu was varied with typical tavern fare, chicken, steak, quesadillas, seafood and sandwiches. The CCT offers a wide variety of specialty sandwiches that all sounded great from The Desperado, a cheesesteak with fried eggs and hot sauce. The Yosemite Sam'wich, Roast pork with fried onions and sweet peppers, BBQ sauce and swiss. The True Grit, Hot roast beef with cheddar au jus and horseradish sauce. I opted for one of the daily specials with plans to come back and try everything on the menu. I ordered the Southwest spicy fish wrap. Crispy beer battered fresh cod, spicy slaw and pepper jack cheese in a giant flour tortilla, served with pico de gallo, sour cream and guacamole on the side. Delish. My dining partner ordered a grilled chicken sandwich with bacon. This sandwich was perfectly cooked, the chicken breast was huge, seasoned perfectly and tender, not over cooked, just right. Crispy bacon and american cheese served on a brioche bun for an extra touch. Both dishes were served with seasoned fries that were crispy and hot! We both enjoyed our meal here and promised to come back very soon. The service was great, the décor was fitting and flowed well with the country, honky tonk theme. This place is a must go if your visiting The Cape May Zoo or even if your on the way Down the Shore. Two thumbs up from this hungry traveller!!
