Peter Shields Inn
We had an excellent meal onWe had an excellent meal on a stormy night. Halibut was a perfect piece of fish could have used more sauce, beautifully presented. Rib eye steak was amazing! Hands down the best desserts we have had in a long time!
Such a great place a favorite in Cape May.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe visiting Peter ShieldsWe visiting Peter Shields for their early dining 3 course meal which is a great deal. The food was very good as was the service. I recommend coming to Peter Shields for a special night out.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfection...as usualAnother excellent evening at PSI. Food was spectacular. Service was impeccable courtesy of Chris. PSI is bulletproof. We eat here year round and have never had a bad meal. Chris is so knowledgeable one could let him choose the entire meal!6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFine dining at the Jersey ShoreWe were seated promptly at our reserved time at a corner table near the wonderful piano music. Comfortable chairs in a beautifully appointed room. The Boston bib salad plate was delicious and the cherry tomatoes were tasty gems. My companion thoroughly enjoyed the potato leek bisque. We couldn't decide which was better the salmon or scallop entrée, each beautifully plated and accompanied by perfectly prepared vegetables and complementary but not overpowering sauces. The English Toffee pudding and Passion Fruit tart were just right in portion and flavor. No room for coffee or tea. Service was prompt and professional. We'll be back soon.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMA gem in cape mayDelicious food, romantic setting, fabulous piano player with impeccable service. We went during restaurant week to try it. We will definitely be back.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMYet another great experience at PSIIt's our fourth or fifth visit as we have made it the restaurant of choice to celebrate our wedding anniversary and have yet had any issues or complaints.

Thank you6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMBack Again!Took some friends here for dinner...it was restaurant week and for $35 per person, we each had either salad or Potato Leek Soup which was amazing! Dinner choices were great, Salmon, Hangar Steak and Scallops were the three selections enjoyed by our party. Portions were plentiful, delicious and presentation was perfect. Desserts were great, one was accompanied by homemade Blueberry Sorbet that was out of this world. Two weeks in a row and knocked it out of the ballpark both times!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMRomantic meal @ PSIMy husband & I enjoyed a wonderfully romantic, relaxing meal @ Peter Shields Inn. We requested to dine on the screened front porch and were given a lovely table for 2 in front corner of the porch. The sun was just setting, so the view of the beach and ocean across the street was fabulous. It was restaurant week in Cape May, so we ordered from the pre fixe menu (3 courses for $35 pp). All of the courses were delicious and ample size and a great deal since their regular menu is pricey. BYOB is a plus! Highly recommend PSI for a special occasion.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMCape May Rest. Week/Peter ShieldsThe food was excellent and served on hot plates; We enjoyed the appetizers, entrees and the deserts. You can bring your own wine which saves money. The only drawback was the service. I don't know if the problem was that the place was packed or the wait staff appeared new and not experienced. On previous visits the service was very good but the I don't recognize any the present wait staff. I would definitely go again and give them another try as we thoroughly enjoyed the food.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was quite good. WeThe food was quite good. We dined there during Cape May Restaurant Week. The waiter was very confused about whether the specially-priced Restaurant Week items could also be ordered off of the regular menu. For example, we tried to order a salad from the Restaurant Week menu. Our request was refused despite our offer to pay "full price" for the salad. This was confusing to us. Overall service was adequate but not exceptional.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect for special occasionThe Peter Shields Inn has a gracious ambience for a memorable dining experience. Their menu offerings are delectable to the food connoisseur and their service staff is professional. Each dish was presented elegantly and was beautiful to the eye. We happened to dine on their patio and appreciated the ocean view and the screening to keep our experience comfortable from unwanted outside elements, and yet enjoy the pleasant outdoor dining. A beautiful, attractive establishment, expertly maintained.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing ExperienceOur dinner at PSI was extraordinary from beginning to end. This restaurant goes above and beyond to make your dining experience pleasurable. The outside porch area is just beautiful ...you can see the ocean as you relax and enjoy your meal. The service was excellent, as was the food. This restaurant is not to be missed! Wd will be coming back each year when visiting Cape May.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary RecommendationPerfect romantic spot for an anniversary dinner. Ocean view table, pleasant and proper service, food presentation and taste - above most in Cape May. Could no t complain about anything at all.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time at PSII've walked past this restaurant many times and thought it might be too fussy for me.
Not at all. Staff was extremely inviting, and efficient.
My group had the restaurant week menu. The hangar steak was grilled to perfection and was a large serving.
All dishes were beautifully decorated.
I will definitely return.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent view, beautifulExcellent view, beautiful table setting, gourmet food, lovely presentation, professional and friendly staff.

Food, ambience--everything was just great. The dessert was ridiculously marvelous and we unanimously agreed--the best dessert we'd ever had. Everything was a thumbs up but I especially liked the salmon and the toffee pudding.

We have stayed here as it it a bed and breakfast but this time just came for dinner. Very beautiful property!5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect AnniversaryCuisine, ambience, service; the Peter Shields Inn excels at all three. My husband and I chose the PSI to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary, and our evening was perfect. "Elegant," is the word that would best describe the atmosphere and decor. Crisp, white tablecloths, black and white color scheme with touches of green, soft lighting which proceeded to candlelight as the sun was setting, and the finishing touch...a corner table facing the ocean! The service at PSI is exceptional, and from the moment we entered their grand entrance we were treated like royalty. Our meal? (Sigh)...Outstanding! It's always exciting to see unusual, inspired creations and their chef did not disappoint. We are still raving about the veal and dessert!5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding!Always our favorite in Cape May!

The staff are friendly and helpful, our request for a quiet table was more than met, the pace of food arrival was perfect (not all restaurants, regardless of price, manage that), and the building itself is a classy old mansion. This is our second time there, and we look forward to returning as soon as possible.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat views on the ocean...We've eaten here many times since the new ownership. We had a nice meal. We were on the side enclosed porch. It was very quiet. The piano music was beautiful--a really nice touch. I had the chicken & my husband had a scallop special. I often feel the menu needs more variety. We were pleased and would recommend people to eat there.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMVery elegantMy Husband & I spent an evening of our Memeorial Day Holiday at The PSI aka Peter Sheilds Inn, everything was perfect and we can't wait to go back!

And superb food also. I had the scallops. Some of the best I ever had. I can still taste them. BYOB so make sure to bring something special.

The inn is gorgeous, across the street from the beach, and the food was delicious. Everything we ate, the roasted beet salad with ricotta, potato leek soup, hangar steak, Australian sea bass, and dessert was not only presented beautifully but tasted good as well.

So I took my Mom for a surprise lunch to a place she has always wanted to go - the beautiful Peter Shields Inn. Let me tell you, they did not disappoint! From the second you walk up to the front of the beautiful mansion overlooking the white sandy beaches and blue water, to the wonderful service and outstanding food, I have a feeling this restaurant will become a Mother's Day and any special occassion tradition. It was absolutely perfect. Also, close enough to the Washinton Street Mall for a little post lunch shopping.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best in Cape MayPeter Shield's never disappoints. The restaurant is beautiful, romantic, elegant, and the food is amazing.

It was our one year anniversary. We were married there last year. I had the lump crab salad and Salmon followed by the vanilla crème brule for dessert. My husband had scallops wrapped in bacon, beef duo, followed by the chocolate lava cake and vanilla bean ice cream. All was delicious. The inn offers beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean. Saturday evenings they have a piano player who plays light jazz/easy listening. It was a delight to listen to him play during our dinner. It was such a romantic end to our romantic weekend in Cape May.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely RestrauantBYO which we did not know upon arriving but they offer wine from the Cape May Winery.

They were impressed with the size of them and said they were the best they'd ever had. My roasted beet salad was also nicely plated and tasty.
Three of us had the PSI “Duo of Beef” (Braised short ribs & hanger steak) with a truffle risotto. Everyone agreed that it was delicious.
My husband had the chef's 4 course special also enjoying each course presented. The Creme Brulle had the proper texture and taste.
We've been trying different restaurants when we come to Cape May and Peter Shields is by far my most favorite.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
