Meh. Just okay food, indifferent service
WE have been there several times and always leave impressed. The menu selections make your mouth water and you wish you could order more than one meal but you will wait until the next visit to try the second choice. Never disappoints!
Very friendly and accommodating staff. The food was delicious, and moderately priced. The carrot cake-OMG-so yummy!
I had the Scallops and Shrimp Nage with a Lobster Cream sauce which I requested light on cream. The dish came with without any cream and sauce had no flavor. The pasta was over cooked and did not seem fresh. I ate only the Scallops and Shrimp. At the end of the meal the server asked how everything was since I left all the pasta on the plate. I explained that the pasta did not seem fresh. Server offered a free dessert since I did not like the pasta which I declined. I then requested to speak to manager.
The Manager was rude and went into a long discussion on why I should not have requested a change in the dish. I should not of placed an order for the dish if you wanted to change it. Reducing the amount of cream did not seem like a outrageous request. She also seemed offended that I thought the pasta was overcooked and not fresh.
At the end the Manager gave us a $10 discount for the meal.
Great place everything delicious
The Appetizers and dinner meal was very good. But, the banana's Forsters Cheese Cake was outstanding!!!
Will definitely be back. The food is great and the service was wonderful. Great drinks too!
We usually dine at the Lobster House when in Cape May but decided to stay at Concress Hall this weekend and Oster Bay was just a short walk from the hotel.
The service was great and the meal would best any Cape May restaurant. Will definitely come back and recommend anyone visiting CapeMay to take time to check out.
One of our go-to places in Cape May. Food is very good and the service is always pleasant. Prices are moderately high. The fried tomato appetizer is splendid. The crab-topped filet is always a safe bet and their seafood dishes are always very good.
Minor complaint, however, to pay the prices they ask, I’d prefer a menu that is not “diner-like” and prefer a more professional place setting. The filet mignon with crabmeat was EXCELLENT! One in my party ordered the chicken and was ill that night.
Had a wonderful meal. Coconut shrimp were incredible. The banana foster cheesecake is the best.
Appetizers and Dinner were excellent. We are locals and love going here. We had family in town for Easter weekend and they loved their dinner.
this restaurant serves very good food, and accommodated our desire to watch the NCAA by seating us at the bar and providing dinner service there. Very nice bar, very helpful waiters and bartenders, and excellent desserts too!
We ate here recently for a meal on Easter weekend and were pleasantly surprised. We must have driven by this restaurant no less than 100 times and have never thought to stop here. It's right across the street from the Acme and the parking lot on Lafayette Street. Not exactly on a walking path and about 2 blocks from the end of Washington St. mall its actually not hard to get to, but you have to intend to go there.
There is some nice landscaping outside and then the interior is very nice - nautical theme with lots of dark wood and earth tones. It's split into a few different rooms which makes it cozy and quiet. One of the nicer restaurant interiors in town.
The service was prompt and attentive. One main server and others helped out. All were friendly and willing to help.
Food was excellent. We had steak, two different types of fish and the duck as entrees - all were well cooked as ordered and came with different matches vegetables and sides. The bang bang shrimp were a great appetizer - fresh and cooked perfectly. Bread was warm and freshly made, nicely spiced.
They had a very good wine list that was very reasonably priced, especially for a restaurant and they weren't all just local selections. Best wine value I have seen in town. There was a nice selection of cocktails and mixed drinks as well although we did not have any. There is a kids menu. Desserts looked good, but we were too full.
Overall, a very pleasant surprise, I wasn't sure what to expect when we came here, but we left with the impression that this is one of the better restaurants in Cape May and there is some stiff competition in that regard. We will definitely be back for another meal.
Waitstaff was great as always and food was awesome if your looking. For a great meal make sure you try oyster bay .
As usual, the food was excellent and the service very professional. We have never been disappointed at Oyster Bay!
The food was excellent. The atmosphere was inviting. The bar area was vibrant. The cocktails were very good. The prices are a little high, but we are not in Cape May very often so it's worth it.
It was our first time and we will definitely be back. We were in the restaurant not the bar area but that looked like a happening place. Food was outstanding- cooked to perfection. Our waiter was excellent.
We were in town for a ladies retreat and decided to give Oyster Bay a try. We were not disappointed !
Our meal was delicious. Tried roasted duck breast with asparagus and mashed sweet potatoes. The glaze was a special touch. I definitely plan a return visit!
Always a great meal. Awesome food and awesome service and not so loud like most other restaurants I’ve been to
The atmosphere was very nice and cozy. We ordered the shrimp cocktail for our app and they did not clean the shrimp. This made me worry about our main course. Overall the main course was good however, my husband ordered his steak medium and it can’t out basically raw. We are not ones to complain so we did not. The service was very good. Parking was horrible!
Great food and atmosphere. My husband had the salmon special, it was very good and well seasoned. Everything was delicious with the exception of the crab cake which tasted a bit storebought and creamy texture rather than a lump crab cake. All other dishes including the mango marscapone dessert and shrimp appetizer were exceptional. Would highly recommend
Great vibe, had the oyster sliders which were delicious, just a fun place to be casual and have some apps and a drink
Ambiance, menu selection, food and service all great. Parking lot is a whole different story. It is undersized, unpaved, unlined and underlit. It is full of deep potholes and mud puddles. Count yourself lucky if you get out without a sprained ankle or a damaged vehicle. Worth dining here but park elsewhere.
We always enjoy our meals at Oyster Bay. The atmosphere is cozy and the food is delicious!
Oyster Bay is one of our favorite restaurants . My husband and I had a wonderful Valentine's celebration dinner. We both had appetizers and fish specials of the night. Everything was delicious and the staff made it a perfect evening.
Excellent have never have been disappointed . Great service and food.
Everything was excellent. Always enjoy going there. Selection changes from time to time but is always good. If you have never tried it you must put it on you short list.
The food is the best in Cape May. Owner/Hostess very nice person. Guest are treated like royalty..
Great food, even better service. We were lucky enough to have our favorite server, Mary, again! Oyster Bay has never disappointed!
Last two times we’ve visited Oyster Bay, the food was subpar. Menu is fairly limited so you’d assume everything would taste great but that has not been the case. My husband had chicken pasta dish and chicken didn’t seem thoroughly cooked. I ordered the filet mignon and crab dish noted on menu as a “20 year staple” and it was uneventful. Desserts were good though! We love the vibe and location so we hope Oyster Bay steps up their game a bit.
The overall experience was very very good. We had a reservation and they sat us right away upon arrival. The server was very pleasant and helpful with the menu. I had a spicy shrimp and eggplant appetizer that was delicious. I kept the theme spicy and went for the Cajun seafood over linguini. Everything was perfect. Restaurant was quaint and very nicely decorated. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
We had eaten at the bar before - too crowded and noisy for us. Restaurant was excellent - service, food, and decor. We'll be back.
Can count on a good meal here Year round. Specials are creative and tasty. Thank you!
Made reservation for after the Christmas Tree lighting in Cape May. Arrived early and decided, with the hostess ok, to sit at the Bar. We love to eat at the bar. The bartenders are very attentive and they all check on you to see if you need anything. We can have the full menu there plus a look at the bar menu too. We had the crusted grouper and enjoyed every bit! We came back the next night and had The calamari and the cheeseburger flatbread and of course desert both nights. Love it here!
Great food..nice ambiance...a little pricey though...
Always a perfect meal at this restaurant. Very friendly staff.
Steve was a terrific attentive server and we thanks him for his work.
The parking was impossible the night we were there. Some spots should be reserved for diners; it seemed like most must have been taken up by bar patrons.
The calamari was the best I've ever had. We enjoyed our meals. We will definitely be back.
