35th wedding anniversary
Wonderful staff who
Paid attention to detail. Not intrusive but just right
Lots of interesting flavors!!
We came in to celebrate our anniversary. Our dinner was amazing! We started with the summer for soup. It tasted so fresh. We then had the day boat scallops which were so tender you could cut them with your fork. We ended with the strawberry sorbet. Perfect dinner!
Beautiful restaurant and setting, excellent service and very good food. We enjoyed the ambiance and lovely background piano music. The toffee pudding desert is a winner!!
We have been to Peter Shields a few times. It is a very special place!
It starts with the beautiful old house across from the beach. The service is impeccable. The food is just special.
Great experience as always. Kim was awesome!!! A bit too noisy as two parties were extremely loud… maybe a good idea if the restaurant tried to manage that….after all, PSI is not Friendly’s!!!!!
He outdoor seating was a little tighter than usual. It appeared more tables were added making it not as comfortable as before. Service very good as usual, however there was a wedding party staying in the Inn part that made the dining overcome with noise.
Went on a Friday night to dine and hear piano music. Food was creative and excellent. Piano music was superb and really set the ambience.
Recommended and hope to be back.
Last trip to the shore this summer. Very special evening! The halibut was delicious and love that you can text your requests to the piano player!
Outstanding anniversary dinner! Food was great, atmosphere lovely
High quality food in a wonderful location. Excellent wait staff
The oyster appetizer was delicious and the bay scallops were excellent - fresh and served in a tasty citrus sauce, accompanied by a wonderful version of dirty rice. The lava cake we ordered for dessert was also excellent. The restaurant has a lovely, inviting ambiance, and our server was terrific -attentive and made helpful suggestions. I highly recommend Peter Shields Inn for a special evening out when you want to treat yourself to something upscale and memorable!
Lovely place. Beautiful old home with gorgeous gardens. Good chef.
Arrived early to have wine on porch prior to dinner reservation but due to staff shortage no one ever opened wine or brought glasses! Past that everything was wonderful! Oysters and corn soup to die for! Scallops cooked perfectly! Mahi -mahi excellent! Overall an excellent experience as expected!!
Waitress was wonderful, piano player terrific, great night
Good menu selections. BYOB, although a few local wines are available. Service was excellent! Food presentation was very good. We had tuna tartare, corn chowder soup, and oysters for apps. The Halibut and Mahi entrees were superb, and everything I read about the Lava cake was true! Delicious
Awesome dining experience
Beautiful place for dinner
You have to make reservations very, very, very in advance and it very, very, very much worth the effort. The food and service is always excellent as well as the the live music provided by the Pianist, Mr Gunther.
As always, a virtually perfect meal in every respect. Best BYO in NJ innmy book, and maybe the best restaurant, period.
This is one of our favorite restaurants. It never disappoints. The food is wonderfully prepared and so delicious. The wait staff and all staff are gracious and professional. The setting overlooks the ocean. Don’t miss eating here if you are in Cape May
Perfect service from Petar as usual! Superb ceviche followed by spectacular rack of lamb.
Great anniversary dinner!
Reserved many months ago as we are frequent guests( were). Requested inside seating however, with the confusion defining indoor v outdoor seating since COVID, I made a specific note for front porch seating facing ocean ( 1st choice) or porch seating on side street. Historically, that request of seating has always been honored for Sunday, Wednesday or Thursday evening reservations.
When we arrived , the hostess did not acknowledge my request; as if she either didn’t see my note or chose to ignore it. We did end up on the side porch. As we entered, there 3 or 4 tables for 2,, one at a window. Asked if that table was possible however she seated us at 1 of the 2 tables against the wall. Overall, that was fine
As the next hour passed, I continued to notice that the front porch tables was 1/2 occupied. Also, within 15 minutes of being seated, a couple came into our area and was about to be seated when the woman made a bit of a stink demanding a window seat “because it was her birthday “. She was quickly accommodated. Now, for the next hour, she was the LOUDEST person in the restaurant. Talked to whomever would listen to her….felt sorry for the couple seated next to her table! Even other patrons were routinely turning around acknowledging her self centered loudness. I can certainly appreciate the most difficult situation this put the waitstaff in, I really can. That said, I feel it was loud enough that a member of the management team could have discreetly approached her . That didn’t happen but againId can appreciate the challenge this presented to the staff.
As our meal progressed, I noticed that the tables on the front porch were starting to fill up. As a result , the waitstaff team got busier. Our waiter came to me, as my spouse was not at the table, and asked about coffee and dessert. I requested a 1/2 regular 1/2 decaf with milk for her and asked for a dessert menu. Well, easily 15-20 minutes went by…..no coffee. No dessert menu. Last time psi!!!
The food was delicious but a tad expensive. The service was excellent
PSI was a lovely place to have an excellent meal. The food was delicious, the service very pleasant, especially timing. We really enjoyed ourselves.
Amazing place , great service serving standard uninspired food. Halibut was ok , scallops were ok lava cake was ok cheese was ok. Maybe for cape may this was good but if you have eaten in create quality restaurants elsewhere you will feel a little underwhelmed. Looking at all the amazing reviews I presume we were unlucky?
We had a wonderful dinner at Peter Shields Inn & Restaurant last night. Our waitress, Kim, was very nice and attentive along with the rest of the staff. Full service here and the food was delicious! Fresh corn and lobster soup, heirloom tomatoes w Burrata, halibut and Bronzino. They also surprised us with a glass of champagne for our anniversary. To top it all off the piano player took requests via text and I was able to get him to play our wedding song without My husband knowing it! Very well played and a great anniversary!!!
Just a beautiful venue by the shore. An old mansion serves to welcome you to an opulent dining experience. Lots of attention to detail, lots of attention from the servers, and at dessert, they remembered to wish us a Happy Anniversary!
One of our favorite dining spots in Cape May. Delicious food, awesome service. Not a fan of eating outside as much as inside but the netted area was done very well and was very comfortable.
The food was good could have been better. The waiter had a great personality, but she seemed to be doing a lot. The Overall atmosphere was good.
Excellent service & ambience. We had a table on porch with a beautiful view. We even saw a rainbow in the sky!
On vacation in Cape May, and have dined here many times before. It is always our favorite meal while vacationing here, they never disappoint. Our server Dillon was very attentive and his recommendations were wonderful! Thank you again PSI for another wonderful meal!!
We had dinner for our Anniversary! Peter, our waiter was outstanding and Kahlil at the piano set the night off. Thank you.
One of our favorite places to dine in Cape May.
