Our dinner was spectacular! We were there to celebrate my husband’s 70th birthday and everything about our dinner was truly amazing. Our waiter made great suggestions, the wait staff was very attentive, and the hostess remembered to put a birthday candle on my husband’s dessert.

We had a special night at PSI. Our waiter, Dan, was professional, experienced and has the perfect personality for his job,

The porch led to a wonderful atmosphere with the evening breeze.

Food was excellent. Corn soup is a must to try. It tasted like liquid corn on the cob,
Chicken dish was very tasty. Scallops on a beg of Kale and lentils were good but salty.

Overall a very good experience.

The four-course tasting was fantastic. The staff was pleasant and helpful. Lots of children when we were there so the noise level was a little high. We enjoyed our dinner and would go back again when we visit Cape May

By far the best restaurant in Cape May. Dining on the porch on a great summer evening is priceless.

The food here was amazing! It was the best meal I had in a long time. Everything had flavor and cooked perfectly. I had the four course tasting meal and cleaned the plate at every serving. Seatng inside or outside was beautiful.

Three of us ordered from the prefix menu and one from the main menu-everything was fabulous. Our waiter was excellent-sorry I do not remember his name but he was a tall gentleman. He was very courteous, knowledgeable and made our dining experience very special. For appetizers we had tuna tartare and the corn soup. Our entrees from the prefix menu were chicken, pork tenderloin and salmon and then Long Island duck from the main menus. Desserts were fruit and a toffee pudding. We also ordered a bottle of Cape May Pinot Grigio with our meal and cappuccinos and an espresso.
A perfect meal.

Disappointing. Dishes too ambitious and not well composed. Bacon scallops. pancetta with shrimp. Fois gras was outstanding though. Interior needs refresh. no Liquor license

Food was ok but a little dated, every dish does not need microgreens. They were even on the dessert?

Service was excellent and ambiance was very nice. This is not boundary pushing food, this is upscale food for people who are not used to eating cutting edge cuisine.

Went on Wednesday for our annual visit to PSI with our family of 5 while on vacation. The food was mostly tasty, but skimpy portions and excessive prices. My sister in law said that her pork tenderloin entree was dry, and we both found our corn soup to be just slightly warm. My husband ordered a half dozen oysters for $28.00! He asked our waiter when he was ordering if the oysters were a good size and was told that they were. Of course, these oysters turned out to be only half the size he was told. My husband inquired about the "champagne ice" that came with it and I guess that is what PSI thinks justifies the sticker shock. (It added nothing to the appetizer, of course) We had 4 desserts and 4 cappuccinos and the bill came just under $400.00. I think for 5 people (especially without liquor) this is a steep price point.
We all agreed that we have seen the restaurants value and portion size decrease over the years. There are many lovely restaurants in the area and unfortunately, we will choose to dine elsewhere.

Had to wait 40 minutes for our table and had no idea it was a BYOB. Didn’t say that on the website. Food was good but very expensive. Atmosphere lovely. Service fair...

We have dined at the Peter Shields Inn many times over the last 20 years. We have never, ever had a bad experience of any kind. The food is well prepared and artfully presented, and the service is excellent. Clearly, one of the best in Cape May.

As always (we celebrate our anniversary here every year) the food was amazing. The service is really excellent; all four diners were served simultaneously, because Peter Shields is well staffed. Our very professional waiter, Chris, then reminded us the description of our food, a very classy touch. As soon as each diner was finished, the empty plates were removed, so the table is immediately cleared of dirty dishes. (So many other restaurants don’t do this well.) We look forward to returning, every year, for many years to come, to celebrate our anniversary.
