American | Ventnor City, Atlantic City

My sister and her husband were in town from Richland, Washington. I wanted to treat them to a wonderful experience with amazing food and Cardinal Bistro was my restaurant of choice. We had a 7 PM reservation and were graciously welcomed into the restaurant, shown to our seat, and Sage came by to introduce herself and explain the specials. We made our selections and my sister and her husband were totally focused on their choices and dug right in to enjoy themselves ! Throughout the meal, comments were, "This is the best dinner I've had here this week", "Delicious", "The Halibut is fantastic !" My brother-in-law ordered the pork chop and his eyes nearly popped out of their sockets when he saw that size of the pork chop ! But, he managed to get every single morsel of meat off the bone with a big smile on his face. Thank you, Michael, for a wonderful evening with my sister and brother-in-law. We don't see each other too often, and they are going home with a delicious memory of our night at Cardinal Bistro ! Adding to the most enjoyable evening, was the attentiveness of your father, checking on us to make sure we were enjoying our meals. Both your father and Sage complimented our experience at Cardinal Bistro ! More

This is the 6 or 7th time we have eaten at PSI over a few years. Everything about the restaurant is 5 star. It was my 70th bday. Going there made it special. My hubby and I had a rack of lamb for two. It was a WOW. My friend had the duck. She said it was the best she ever had. Our waiter Chris was very attentive, and very knowledgable about the food. The only down side was the pianist only comes on Saturdays in the fall and winter. He compliments the whole night when he plays. I really missed him. But it was still an enjoyable night! More

Discover South Jersey Shore

It's hard to think about summer on the South Jersey Shore without thinking about food. From street vendors selling pizza, hot dogs and clam rolls to fine seafood restaurants serving lobster and scallops, the South Jersey Shore offers a wide range of meals for locals and visitors. Of course, the strong Italian heritage in the area guarantees many fine pasta choices, but you can also choose from an array of international cuisines, including Greek, Chinese, Thai, Middle Eastern and Korean. The South Jersey Shore is famous for its frankfurters. This means that there are scores of hot dog stands and joints scattered down the shore. Doughnuts are another iconic food for the region, fluffily hand-baked, topped and filled. There are several shops that make fresh gourmet doughnuts for a special sweet delicacy.
