Visitor Tips and News About The Ugly Mug
The Ugly Mug has some great food! Best crab cakes, I just wish they would bring back the fish tacos. We try to go there at least once a summer when we visit the shore. It's worth the wait if you happen to show up during a busy time. Haunted? Not sure, but the whole town has so much activity it wouldn't surprise me.[Jen, 03/01/2012]
It is also haunted... The lights in the bathroom go out on their own and will not come back on![Niki, 03/21/2011]
There's this bar in Cape May called "The Ugly Mug." The ceiling is covered with mugs that have names and numbers. The numbers represent the person's drinking club membership number. The club members come in, take their mugs down and drink. The openings of the mugs face West. The mugs that face East are owned by deceased Ugly Mug members. It's a pretty neat place, dark and smokey, definite bar atmosphere.[Crissy, 06/12/1998]
