Seafood is healthy
TWICE IS NICE
Fish is a fabulous food—lots of variety in taste and texture, versatile and low in saturated fat. It's also low in calories—the perfect healthy food. Seafood contains an abundance of essential minerals—iron, zinc, iodine and selenium. Aim to include a fish dish in your diet at least twice a week—and more is better!
Local fresh cuisine
Located in the heart of Cape May Court House, Matthews is both restaurant and market, offering you a variety of ways to enjoy more fresh seafood.
Let us cook our fresh catches for you, to be enjoyed at our restaurant or as take out, or bring home our seafood and prepared foods for an easy meal. In the summer, we even offer fresh produce from local farms.
Eat in/Take out
Join us in our cozy restaurant or on our sunny patio. We are BYOB and do not accept reservations.
Rather take out? You can also order ahead and we'll have your meal ready for pick up.

“The main reason to go is because Matthews' ingredients are pristine, beginning with one of the best collections of expertly shucked local oysters...This unique market has given me a reason to revisit.”
