    I had Steak Diane. The tendon was still on the filet, the sauce was unremarkable with very few peppercorns, and the veggies were cold and inedible. The fried leek topping was tasty. My husband had filet and said it was nearly inedible. Go figure. We may go back, but only to try the bar menu. There are so many great restaurants in Cape May at the same price point where I would rather spend my money.

    Expensive $$$$. Food choices were very limited. Crab cakes had to be deep fried. Most seafood is served on lots of linguini. The martinis were good but my glass was only 2/3's full with clumps of sugar on the rim. Not a nice presentation for a $10 drink. Service was rushed. We won't return.

    Fried tomato/crab app was great, Panko Grouper very good---Crab cakes ehhh not so good. Steak tasty but sort of tough. Service couldn't hav been better. Noise level too high and probably cause the tables are close and sort a congested. But overall a decnt place and yes we would go again.

    I have a new "Favorite Restaurant". I have heard the name of your restaurant at the Cape May Theater over the years and have finally taken the time to make a reservations for dinner. We had such an enjoyable experience, we can't wait to come back. We are at the shore every weekend and will definitely make time to try some of the other wonderful selections on your menu. I am also excited abut finding a place for dinner to have our "reunion" for 8 during the summer. I am sure they will all love Oyster Bay. We will be back soon.

    I can't tell you how many times we passed this great restaurant. My husband and I are creatures of habit!! So this time while vacationing in Cape May we heard some great things about Oyster Bay and decided to try it. Well so glad we did. Food, service and atmosphere were wonderful and this will be our new go to place when visiting . All in all we should be more adventurous but when something is good we feel why not stay with it.

    We've dined for several years and many times at Oyster Bay. We love the décor, the menu is excellent and the specials are always diverse and tempting. Meal preparation is superb and presentation is beautiful. After all, we eat first with our eyes! Service is always first rate and reserving through Open Table could not be easier.

    We come to Cape May at least three trip during the summer months and we like to dine at Oyster Bay on at least two of these trips. Highly recommend for casual drinks at the bar, the setting is in the back room, large area. Not noisy if you just want to have dinner, diverse menu and they alway have some enticing specials

    I took a last minute reservation on a busy night, so that's a helpful caveat: We waited 20 minutes for our table (while some walk ins were seated in front of us). My girlfriend is a vegetarian with a shellfish allergy, but found a salad she was willing to eat so that I could enjoy a meal. BUT ... the restaurant has a policy that you have to have an entree to sit at a table (ie, no salad). We asked for clarity on the policy and explained the allergy situation to our waitress; her only reply was "I can find you a seat at the bar." There was no willingness to either accommodate or even explain, just "go sit at the bar." Plus: The host was rude as all get out to a family seeking a table, the decor is tired, and the place is loud. We walked.

    Great Food and service always. Have never been disappointed. We like to do BYOBs in Cape May but Oyster Bay is the only non BYOB that we always make sure to hit several times a year. The new bar is big and spacious. Really enjoyable atmosphere. The fried tomato with crab meat appetizer is one of the best. A great restaurant that us locals love.

    We've dined at Oyster Bay at various times over the past few years with relatively good experiences. My family and I dined there this past Friday night and we all had excellent meals, however, service was lacking. At any given time, there were at least 6 empty glasses on the table. Wine and water glasses for my husband and I and my children's sodas. The server was very inattentive and it felt like she only came over to us when she had to such as when she took orders and delivered food. We had to flag her down every time to get refills on drinks. On top of that, she looked like she didn't even really care about her job and pleasing customers. She dialed in the least amount of effort to get the job done.

    Nice place! I had their House Special, which for $29 I thought was a good deal. It's a half a lobster stuffed with crab imperial and an 8 oz filet. Although the filet was a bit overcooked the meal was tasty! The other notable dish was a salmon special, also very good. The Bananas Foster cheesecake at the end was excellent!

    My husband had the clambake and I the lobster dinner. We usually go to the Lobster House but the owner of the B&B recommended Oyster Bay for a special birthday dinner. The seafood in the clambake was ok except for the lobster which was just so so. My lobster was undercooked. Overall not up to our expectations.

    After several fine meals at Oyster Bay, we felt confident taking visiting friends there for dinner. Both ladies ordered Key West Chicken, the husband ordered a combination of crab cake and petite sirloin. The chicken in both dinners was so overcooked that a knife had trouble cutting it. One of the crab meat sauce toppings had shells in it and the lady sent it back. The replacement chicken was much better prepared and delicious. The man's crab cake was "OK" but the steak had a tough texture for the price. My filet mignion and crab topping was great. When told about the one chicken with shells (they tasted more like fish bones), the server told her she was wrong and challenged the lady's opinion. She exchanged the meal, no comps.

    I've eaten at Oyster Bay several times and it never disappoints. Table is always ready on time, sometimes early; hosts and servers are pleasant, courteous (attentive but not intrusive), and knowledgeable about the menu; and the food is always outstanding. We split an appetizer special (shrimp and andouille in cajun spices over fried eggplant), and had I known how amazing it would be, I would have asked if I could turn it into an entree. My shrimp and scallops over linguini was delicious, and my husband's steak was cooked a perfect medium well. I never get dessert because I'd rather keep eating my entree, but I'm sure they are great too. Can't wait to back down there next summer.

    We live at the shore all summer and Oyster Bay is our "go to" place. We always recommend it to visitors, and get there at least once a season if not more, because it's consistently good and there are no surprises. Shore dining can be hit or miss - but Oyster Bay is always great.

    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!"
