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

Great attended service from the hostess when you walk in to ordering your dessert and coffee.
I have to say, one of the best roast beef sandwiches I’ve ever had.

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!!!

We had reservations for 5:30 and we arrived early and were seated right away. The waitress was very good with presenting the specials and her service was exceptional. This is our new go to place when in the Wildwood/Cape May area. The food and drinks were outstanding!

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.

We have eaten there before in the past when we visit Cape May the food is always great . The only problem was with parking but we were seated as soon as we arrived,so as not to go over with parking limit time.

Oysters Rockefeller ok; swordfish was very good — shrimp were a nice addition. Filet with crabmeat was good. Service fine, a bit detached. Wines by the glass, eh. Casual atmosphere, one notch above Bennigans.

Oyster Bay always has great food, drinks, and service. Before the season gets hectic, you can usually find parking behind the restaurant. The servers are attentive and friendly, and the portions are very large. We always enjoy going here!

We meet friends at Oyster Bay once a year because they insist on Oyster Bay. This is the third consecutive year. My main issue with Oyster Bay is that the food is inconsistent and mediocre. The first year i had crab cakes which were very bad. I only ate one of the two. Lots of filler and poor taste. The past 2 years i have had london broil, the first year it was decent, 4 stars, this year only 2 starts because, even though it was cooked medium, it was tough and not very tasty.

I made reservations for 8pm with my husband to celebrate our 11th wedding anniversary. We were about 15 minutes behind schedule but our table was ready when we arrived. The hostess was lovely and seated me right away while my husband parked the car. The waiter was great and very knowledgeable of the menu. I ordered the Grouper with red bliss potatoes and vegetables. The grouper was light and flaky and the sauce was delicious. My husband ordered the steak and mashed potatoes. Steak was cooked as requested and he enjoyed every bite. We had a lovely evening and will definitely recommend this place to friends.
