Our group of friends stayed at The Peter Shields Inn for a Christmas outing to Cape May. We ate all breakfasts and dinners at the Inn and we had an outstanding dining experience each time. Our dinner waiter, RJ and his assistant, were attentive, informative and charming making our dining experience fun and memorable. Thank you for taking good care of us!
Food and service were excellent. Our waiter Sean was very attentive and provided great detail regarding all items on the menu. He was spot on when we asked for recommendations. Great spot to dine and to celebrate a special occasion. All in our party totally enjoyed this dining experience.
Our server was great, food was fantastic and plentiful. We had the prix fixe menu and were super satisfied. Beautiful rooms. Winter time is beautiful in Cape May!
Introduced friends new to area to PSI, one of our favorite places for special occasion dining. They were very pleased, as we always are, with excellent food, service, and ambience. We will all be returning often!
Both of us ordered the hangar steak which was delicious. However, the waiter specifically asked "medium rare?" and we both replied no, medium. Both orders came out medium rare which we both ate but was too rare for our liking. We felt a bit "rushed", however, we did ask for more time and it was not a problem. I felt considering the ambiance and price of the food, the serving of courses should have been slower paced. Other than that, it was a nice experience and the food was delicious.
The flavors were delectable. Best tuna and salmon poke ever. It was delicious with an amiable staff!
We started with the fois gras, which was amazing. Also had a fusilli pasta with venison sausage that was good. We both had the venison which was cooked perfectly and delicious. We finished with a sticky toffee pudding and chocolate lava cake. It was a wonderful meal.
Everything was STUPENDOUS ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Enjoyed a quiet dinner on the side porch with my wife. Beautifully decorated for the holidays, the food was exceptional, as was the overall experience.
Enjoyed our 3 course meal at Peter Shields. All of the food was excellent, except my salmon was undercooked even after I told the waiter that I wanted it cooked though - he told me they serve it med. rare so disappointing that I was unable to eat all of it because it was too rare for my liking. The maple creme brulee was a delight. The soup starter was wonderful! Great ambiance and nice staff.
Have been to Peter Shields several times. Despite high expectations, they never fail to deliver. The food is to die for. The service is always great. Every dish is unique bearing the imprint of culinary genius. Food prep is flawless.
Like lots of local restaurants - its BYOB. Every time we go, a few days before we go we look at the menu, and buy a few bottles of wine to bring.
We love Peter Shields ,and their entire staff. Always a wonderful experience
Peter Shields is by far a must experience!!! We have been coming here for special occasions and little getaways and we wouldn’t consider going anywhere else!!! The staff and service is top notch. The rooms are clean and tidy and the restaurant is absolutely amazing. It sit directly across from the beautiful cape May beach, which can sooth anyone’s soul, looking out at it. The food is absolutely delicious. The desserts are to die for and don’t let me forget the afternoon complimentary wine, cheese and fruit!!! This will be our forever favorite spot!!!!
The scallops were gritty with sand grinding in my mouth with every bite.
Never disappoints. Excellent service. 5 star plus.
We have been their several times over the years and it is always excellent. Service was great. Our only comment would be that it is a pricey, but the food is excellent. It is also a BYOW, which does help.
We always have dinner here when in Cape May . We love that the resturant is willing to seat us at our requested, preferred table. Service is always great and the food is fantastic.
Excellent restaurant overall. A special occasion place or where to go to impress. The venison was the best I've ever had and my wife enjoyed her hangar steak too. First time I ever tried foie gras. Not a huge fan but Hudson Valley is supposed to be some of the best so if that's your thing, go for it.
consistently one of the best restaurants in Cape May, a town with many very good restaurants to choose from.
Never disappoints. Always an amazing experience with delicious food.
Rack of Lamb was amazing. Service wonderful. Holiday decor beautiful.
We have eaten here on several special occasions and each time has been better than the last. We love this restaurant. The service, atmosphere, food, and entertainment are all amazing. We recently had our anniversary dinner here and had the butternut squash bisque, burratta salad, hangar steak, and slow roasted chicken. I would recommend each of these items over and over again. We live a distance away but it was worth the trip and we will absolutely be back again in the near future.
Went for our anniversary. The 7-course tasting menu was outstanding.
Always an exceptional stay at PSI! Room was beautiful and comfortable, and dinning - excellent! My second stay and will be back again!
Always Perfect!!!! Had a really fun night with our best friends!!!!! I wish I could give service a 10 star instead of a 5. Chris always makes our evening even more special. He is the best. Thank u.
Excellent! Possibly the best choice in the area. Great service and food!
We had a great meal at PSI on Friday but the whole experience got shaded very quickly when we were there at 5:30 and weren’t offered the pre-dinner menu (pre-dinner menu is offered before 6:00 pm). This menu has almost the same options than the regular menu but the prices are significantly cheaper. I thought that it was the most sneaky false advertisement I had ever seen.
Awesome as usual. This is the 4th Thanksgiving we have eaten dinner here and we will definitely be going here again and again
We went to Peter Shields for the Thanksgiving fixed price menu and everything was wonderful! Between the two of us we had tuna, scallops, and tilefish;
Far above excellence starting from walking up the steps of this beautiful mansion with all the
Fall outside décor and entering a foyer with music being played by a very talented pianist was Tops.
The dishes served were a work of art from presentation to taste. The individuals who took
care of our experience were exceptional.
Having Thanksgiving Dinner at PSI has become a tradition with us for good reason: an outstanding experience all around. Chris has served us for years and adds a great deal to the experience. It doesn’t get any better than this in Cape May.
We had Thanksgiving dinner here. It was truly a dining experience. Expensive but worth every dime. We would definitely consider it for a special occasion.
Thanksgiving dinner, second to none! Quiet piano music playing in the background. Great service and every bite of food was wonderful!
Just lovely place with wonderful food and service!!!
Peter Shields was very good I had the lame was excellent which is very good the waiter was excellent found out it was their anniversary and bought a champagne which is very very good everything was excellent great night beautiful place to go
Hands down the best restaurant in CM. The chef just stepped it up a notch with his recent addition to the kitchen by adding a pasta machine. Look for “Home Made Pasta” dishes that are creative and delicious. One of my favorite pastas is “Bucatini”. The best way to describe it is it resembled a thin straw. it has a tiny hole in it. I ordered the Bucatini with sea food. It was fresh home made al dente. So good. My wife had an interesting dish. Fusilli (Cork Screw) home made pasta with duck and Brussel Sprouts. Delicious. I was informed that moving forward PSI will be offering 4 different pastas each night. There is nothing like home made pasta. Love the new creative dishes with home made pasta. PSI is now my favorite Italian (pastas) restaurant in CM. The chef just made PSI even better if you can believe it. Service is outstanding (Peter and Chris).
Lovely dinner at the Peter Shields Inn..beautiful place..
Very nice anniversary dinner. Great to have a break from the ordinary. We felt like we were in a Cape Maywithout driving for hours. Loved the soft guitar music.
Make an annual trip for anniversary to eat and stay at the Inn. Always a great experience
Peter Shield Inn never disappoints. Food is excellent and service is great! It’s a bit expensive but well worth the price and the fact that it is a BYOB establishment helps to curtail the cost. Highly recommend!
