Dining
There are a lot of restaurants that will draw you in. I feel some establishments are not worth the wait. Hope our recommendations below will help you. Our favorite (including my kiddos) is Merion Inn.
Locals love this place - hidden gem. CASH ONLY. Small place - like a diner. My local contacts say they have great dinners (I have not tried). They are BYOB.

Very unassuming - but you will be pleasantly surprised with presentation and flavor!

Great breakfast and lunch. Warning - it will not be quick. In summer 2019, they have expanded their store and started accepting Credit Cards!!!

Casual restaurant and bar. Definitely gives you the beach side feel. Food is ok. They have a great set-up outside during summer. If you don't decide to eat here, just stop by and check-out their outdoor area. They also have live music in the inside bar.

My fave restaurant. Excellent food! Chicken Francese is delish. Needs reservation and more formal. I would suggest to call at the beginning of your stay, especially during summer. They have great live piano music. Bar is great too. I think it's suitable for kids as it's not a "quiet" restaurant, where your younger childrens' chatter can be heard. I have taken my children here quite often. They too love the food (mac and cheese and the mashed potato cup).

2 restaurant in one place. Lobster House is a sit-down restaurant. Fish Market (huge outdoor deck with plenty of outdoor seating overlooking the marina). You will order from the counter (cooked menu or raw) where they sell their day’s catch. So be prepared for the raw fish smell when you order your food. Then you pick up your food behind the fish market. The outdoor area is big space. They have a raw bar (clams, etc) and a regular bar - as you wait for for food. You can take back to Grandview or find a seat and enjoy the experience.

Sightseeing
The beach is on the bay side. The beach is not sandy, but little pebbles/stones. It is an experience to see a quiet peaceful beach with little tiny pebbles as oppose to sand. Great spot for sunsets. You or your children get to pick for your own Cape May diamond or a bucket of them.

Congress Hall is a hotel. They do a wonderful Christmas decor and outdoor christmas events! It does get crowded though - adjust your expectations. Definitely a must visit! They have a few establishments inside the hotel for refreshments and dining.
