Our appetizers and dinner we’re the best we’ve had so far on our vacation, that is including Williamsburg Virginia and Wildwoods area! The Panko crusted tomatoes over crab and a aoli sauce and the oysters were fantastic! Veal chop and lobster bake....DELICIOUS! Service was impeccable and the atmosphere is very nice nautical and relaxed with a dress code of casual to dressy.

We’ve eaten at Oyster Bay many times. There is an appetizer and a salad that is very good. I have to pick between the two because if I eat both, I won’t eat my entree. The appetizer is fried tomatoes with crabmeat. They give you one fried panko-crusted tomato cut in fours and underneath is greens with a pile of crabmeat that has remoulade sauce on it, or all thru it. It’s very good. Very rich. The appetizer I love is the spinach & brie salad. Almond crusted toasted brie, spinach, croutons, red onions and dried cranberries with strawberry-insused balsamic vinaigrette.
They seem to always have a special of lamb chops stuffed with feta cheese. I think they’re delicious. They have some type of red sauce on the plate which is good but I don’t really need it. There isn’t a lot of sauce so that is fine and as I said it is tasty. The steak diane is very good also. Their mashed potatoes are good. I don’t care for their rice pilaf. To me it had an odd flavor so I never get that. The Grouper which I think is a special is very good. A friend got some type of pasta in a red sauce once. She liked it but I didn’t. There was a spice I didn’t like but I couldn’t put my finger on it as to what it was. My husband has also gotten the veal San Marco. Medallions of veal breaded and pan-fried topped with marinated tomatoes and melted Fontina Cheese. Very good also. So basically we say we’re going to try different things but wind up getting these. I say next time I’m going to try the Coquilles St Jacques. We’ll see. You must leave room for the bananas Foster cheese cake. A light cheese cake sitting in a warm caramel sauce with whipped cream and sliced bananas. You don’t really need all the caramel sauce that is on the plate but what are you going to say, “Don’t give me so much warm caramel sauce?” Some people may like all that sauce. It is a delicious dessert!! The servers I’ve had are professional and friendly. The dining rooms are nice. Great bar too

Great food and service here! Excellent server was wonderful! She was so accommodating and knew the menu well. Both her and the chef were flexible with the menu and willing to change things around. They also were super careful with allergies! Our food was wonderful. It wasn’t a bad price for all of the food that we got. The New England clam bake was amazing and fresh. Also had options for people who don’t like seafood. I would skip dessert, but definitely would return.

We stumbled upon the Oyster Bay by chance about 10 years ago when we were unable to get into the Lobster House for dinner one night. We ended up LOVING it! It has become our favorite restaurant in Cape May and the one we save as our special date night during summer vacation every year. My kids will usually chip in to get us a gift card there for our Anniversary each year as well! And w e always recommend this restaurant to our friends who stay at our beach house.

Steve the waiter was exceptional. From moment we sat to the moment we were done he made sure that we were enjoying our meal. The food is very good I had the porter house veal chop and my husband had the seafood Calabrese. I would recommend having a meal there when your vacationing in Cape May

Wonderful, comfortable atmosphere with outstanding food. Have been coming to Cape May for over 30 years and never had the opportunity to dine here. Told our server we would be back again this year and multiple times in years to come. Everything sounded yummy but we had the salmon and grouper dishes which were excellent. You will not be disappointed!!!

Very disappointed with our server, who was not friendly and had an attitude. Food was ok, although my husband's crab cakes were better than my seafood pasta dish which had no flavor in the sauce-tasted liked it was just the water the pasta was cooked in... Very bland.
The menu is not available online we were told, although I had a menu that said it was their's from Trip Advisor???

We dine here often, more in the off season to ensure access. Typically we eat in the back bar area, but decided to make a reservation and sit in one of the dining rooms. Food is consistently good. My pan fried crusted grouper was cooked just right (not over done), and my wife's fried tomatoes with crab and dinner salad was fresh and tasty. Service was earnest, friendly and, best of all, prompt.
Oyster Bay is not a "find" for us, but since we eat here so frequently I thought I would (finally) post a review.

This used to be a favorite of ours but our recent dinner was a major disappointment. My salad was drowned in dressing to the extent the spinach looked wilted. The server gladly exchanged it. But the chicken with crabmeat had the same issue: the crabmeat was again drowned in hollandaise sauce to the point that I couldn’t taste the crabmeat at all. And the chicken was over cooked.
So in spite of good wine and service, we won’t be returning.
