  • "Love! Love! Love! Oyster Bay! The food and service are always exceptionally consistent! The fried tomato crab salad is too delish! The andouie encrusted grouper is like no other and the Banana's foster whipped cheescake is heaven on a fork! Yummmmmmm!"

  • "This was our first time dining at Oyster Bay, and I was pleasantly surprised by the beautiful decor, excellent service and outstanding dinner. Our waiter was so nice and accomodating. I was in the mood for stuffed lobster, but did not see it on the menu, and I asked our server if the kitchen could make it. They did, and the portion was huge and it was cooked perfectly! I will definitely go back next summer when we return to our annual Cape May trip. I'm so glad we decided to try a restaurant outsided of "the square!""

  • "Got right to our table no problem, staff was very attentive with taking our order, getting drinks etc. Fried tomato app was great, clams casino was good, but clams were a bit overcooked, chewy and large. Seafood Cippino was served with a tomato water, instead of sauce and Seafood Pescatore was so overly spiced with thyme it was all I could taste, also shrimp were overcooked and chewy. We have been here before and noticed food sliding last year, but this was the worst. Also our server didn't ask how the entrees were. Will probably not be back!"

  • "We vacationed in Cape May for 9 days, we had dinner at Oyster Bay for 4 times. Exceptional food, exceptional service. From the lobster tails, steak, crab cakes, shrimp , especially the stuffed rack of lamb. Our compliments to the Chef. And a very well deserved thank you to the servers Jamie, Heather and Allison, you made our dining experience one to remember. We live in NYC where there are many great restaurants, it will be hard to beat Oyster Bay and again I have to repeat the stuffed rack of lamb EXCELLENT. We will be back next year. Thank you again."

  • "Very nice restaurant located close to acme and Washington Mall. They have a list of unusual martinis - tried the sour apple which was really good. Had the specialty combination - one half stuffed lobster and sirloin with sour cream mashed potatoes - excellent . and would definitly order again.Our waitress Joanne also was very good -pleasant as well as efficient."

  • "I had the seafood chippino. I found the fish to be expertly cooked. Often times scallops can easily be over done and rubbery in a dish like this one. Wonderful flavors and seasoned perfectly. Even the crustini served with it was perfect. Attention to detail was refreshing. Although, it's towards the pricier side, we didn't mind because you really get your monies worth. Seemed to be a family run establishment and very friendly. We'll be back next time we're in town."

  • "The service was excellent, the food excellent. We are on vacation and have tried a few restaurants ,Oyster Bay has been the best. We went one night and was very pleased by everything that we decided to go back again. And I believe before we leave ,we will do the same. We highly recommend it and will be telling friends and anyone who is looking for a place to eat."

  • "We have been to the Oyster Bay several times. This time we were there during peak season and still got seated promptly. Reservations are recommended. The staff is very friendly and attentive. My husband had surf & turf and I had the filet mignon. Both were cooked to perfection. Their homemade desserts are so yummy!"

  • "This was our second experience dining at Oyster Bay. We were greeted promptly and seated immediately. Nice waitress served us and our drinks (cocktails and beer) were good but not great (my margin was not cold enough).Our meals were served well and were well prepared. Good comfort food."

  • "I know why this establishment does not have a menu available on Open Table, it is Extremely Uninspired!! For a restaurant that calls themselves "Steak and Seafood" and has Angus Steaks in their description, the only beef available was London Broil, Filet Mignon and Steak Diane, no mention on the menu of it being Angus Beef. Also for "Oyster Bay" there was only one oyster appy, Oysters Rockafella, and that came with Hollandaise Sauce, Really!! The 2 mojitos we ordered were expensive and I don't think they had even had any alcohol in them, you certainly couldn't taste it. We left without ordering dinner. We were very disappointed."

  • "Great location with plenty of free parking on site (a plus). Nicely appointed with a great bar. The only disappointing thing was the food. The vegetables and rice were bland, the seafood was average."

  • "This is the third time that we've taken guests to the Oyster Bay Bar, and each time it lives up to my recommendation. We chose to eat in the bar area, just because we had our son and his wife with us, and they sometimes prefer a less formal atmosphere. The flatbread was exquisite, and my son said that his salmon entrée was "like butter." We have more guests coming this summer, and we will be back to Oyster Bay!!"

  • "The bar is quaint, but not cramped. Large friendly bar with more quiet hightops around the exterior. Not your typical bar food. The seafood and flatbreads are outstanding. The dining section is more formall but not "stuffey". The dinners are as good as anywhere in Cape May BUT you don't leave hungry. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. Will return often for drinks and snacks with friends or romantic dinner."

  • "We went here for a Saturday evening with the family. Wife, Niece and Son. We were underwhelmed. The hostess was nice and showed us to our table upon arrival. The table selected was in a busy thoroughfare between rooms. Too much activity to focus on dinner. Ordered Surf and Turf, Lamb, and Filet. Steaks were the best bet. Lamb was very poorly prepared. Only served rice or mashed potatoes...very unimaginative. Vegetable selection was one... a julienne of zucchini, squash, carrots. This was as creative as a 24 hour diner. Expensive and overpriced, nice atmosphere in entry point to Cape May was the plus. Parking was full and we ended up paying in the lot across the street. Nice location but unless the food changes...never again."

  • "I didn't think the food was exceptional. It was ok but nothing was awesome. We might have picked the wrong night because our friends think it is the best in Cape May."

  • "The presentation was attractive. I enjoyed the brie salad. The were dissapointing. The seafood medley over linguine was not memorable, it tasted like Old Bay. The grouper was over cooked. The chicken marsala was again nothing special."

  • "All in all, a really nice restaurant experience. The waiter was friendly and attentive. The entrees were nicely done and the key lime pie was excellent. Not inexpensive but still worth the cost."

  • "The food was OK. I had the surf and turf for $42. The filet was choice and I ordered it medium which came out medium. The lobster tail was somewhat overcooked and a bit tough. It was OK but not worth $42."

  • "We tried Oyster Bay as a replacement when we decided to cancel a previous reserv. Glad we did. Huge portions, unique presentation of familiar dishes. I will skip an appetizer next time so I can enjoy the whole entree. Couldn't take leftovers w/ me bc we are on vaca. & had no place to keep them. We will be back !"

  • "We have passed this restaurant many times I. The last 20+ years we have been coming to Cape May and never paid any attention. We were looking for something different for a birthday celebration. A shopkeeper on Washington Mall suggested this place. Wow, what a find. Wonderful atmosphere, excellent, plentiful food, friendly and courteous staff, friendly bar. I will definitely be back, and will bring more friends, and recommend to anyone going to Cape May."

  • "We arrived in Cape May with great expectations of good restaurants, and I had selected this one my research before leaving home. Unfortunately, I was very disappointed in this restaurant. The only selection of oysters was blue point from the Chesapeake Bay – none from colder waters in New England or the northwest. I expected more from a restaurant with “oyster” in its name. I had the oysters, since I had my heart set on having good oysters. They were ok, but not what I expected. My wife had New England clam chowder, which was tasteless. My wife had grouper and I had veal scaloppini. Both were only passable. I am sorry that we spent our first dinner in Cape May at this restaurant and would not recommend it to our friends."

  • "A top-notch restaurant in all respects = up-to-date dining rooms that are well arranged and decorated, a diverse menu, well prepared food and an excellent wait staff. The portions are large so bring your best appetite or plan to take something home. The andouille and eggplant appetizer is a favorite of mine. The bar is very popular. It is obvious that the owners and employees are proud of their restaurant."

  • "Good value! Meals are generously sized and tasty. We are in one of the three dining rooms and it was very nice. The waiter (Jack ) was attentive. They have a great bar where you can have small meals; burgers, fish tacos or salads etc. or order from the main menu. TV's to watch your favorite sport event. Or just have a great martini or a ice cold beer! On a warm night this place cools you down!"
