We went to celebrate Valentine’s Day. The service was impeccable as always, nobody was rushing us in order to seat the next guests as a lot of places do on holidays to turn over the tables quickly. The food was delicious I highly recommend the lamb, will be planning our next visit soon.

The restaurant is the best BYOB ever. The value for what you pay is incredible. Beautiful place and impeccable service and an awesome piano player. So worth staying at the inn too for all that they give you too. A yearly trip for us for sure.

Wrong salad was delivered to table, lamb was undercooked, it was rare when medium requested, risotto was like ricearoni, like out of the box. Definitely not worth 200 dollars plus the tip for this meal. Service was excellent though.

Excellent food and excellent service! Dined with a part of 4 on a Saturday evening. Each person had at least 4 courses -- everyone raved at the taste and presentation of each of the courses. As usual, the chef's preparations and the service were wonderful!

No the cheapest dinner -- but it is true at PSI that you get what you pay for! Highly recommended for upper end dining in Cape May!

It was a pleasure to have such a wonderful dinner in Cape May. I have been going to Cape May for years and you get caught up in going to restaurants that you are comfortable going to but this was such a wonderful change for the ordinary meals we have in the Cape May Area.

We will be repeat customers!

The food was outstanding Great selection from the first course to dessert

This is the best restaurant in Cape May. Beautifully appointed with respectable space among the tables that provides an intimate and relaxing setting which is only enhanced by the live piano music (we dined Saturday night). The staff is always attentive and professional while being accessible and friendly. The kitchen is skilled and matured, allowing the first-class ingredients it uses to shine in the preparations it prepares. This is a BYOB so you can bring your favorite libation to enjoy and save substantially. The restaurant has wine from a local winery available for purchase. We are going on our 6th year of regularly dining here and cannot give you a higher recommendation.

Ben was also a pleasure to talk with and is excited about working for Peter Shields. Only disappointment was the lack of disables parking and convenient entrance for those with walking disability. We will be bach!

This was a return visit for my wife and I, a new experience for our friends. They loved it and were blown away. The atmosphere is first rate, the food top notch, the setting luxurious, the service impeccable.

My smoked seafood chowder, a special, was unbelievable. The salad of the day was exquisite. Entrees were very good, although my fish entree was overcooked and somewhat disappointing.

A major concern, although not a fault of the Inn, was a party of eight celebrating a birthday, seated next to us, who arrived having obviously already enjoyed a happy hour, and proceeded to dominate the room.

We will return to enjoy this lovely restaurant.

This was are second time there, the first time was great. This time service atmostphe was wonderful however I ordered fish and it was over done. The night was not a real busy night so I didn't see a reason for this. My husband's meal was good and the desserts were excellent. I would recommend this restaurant because every place can mess up now and then

What a fantastic evening at PSI. It really doesn’t get better than this. It was venison night for me and my wife. She ordered the venison sausage with home made pasta (fussily - corkscrew). Thank you executive chef Carl for investing in a pasta machine. Your pasta dishes are so delicious and creative. I ordered the pan roasted Venison which was the bomb. If you never had venison you must try it at PSI and don’t turn your nose up to it for its not gamy at all. Best meal out in over 2 months. Chef Carl keep the unique pasta dishes coming. Hands down the best restaurant in CM. Our waiter Peter is one of our favorite waiters at PSI and always steers us in the right direction. Chris also. Thank you all for a great evening.

The food although was good was not exceptional nor interesting or creative. I am glad i tried it and they were so busy they obviously do not need me to come back.
