Very pretty restaurant and the service was excellent. I feel the food was over priced for the quality. I know they were on a modified menu for Valentine's week but I had the Lobster Bisque which while flavorful was a little thin. My Monk Fish was very good, but my girlfriend had the Pork Loin and it was a bit dry...again tasted very good. Our table was in the corner and the way it's set up I was looking directly at the couple on one side and she was looking directly at the couple on the other side, it was a little akward. I would like to try it again when they're not featuring a Prix Fixe menu.
The food here as always been wonderful. Whether I have ordered short ribs, steaks, or any seafood it is always so delectable. Pefect romantic night!
Peter Shields is our favorite romantic restaurant in Cape May. The food is excellent and consistent. Love the historic Colonial Revival building. Two of the best things about it are that it is a BYOB and there are no meters to feed all year round.
Best restaurant in Cape May, NJ. Maybe the best in NJ. Elegant, delicious fancy food, excellent service, live piano music, quiet enough. Just wonderful. Our favorite restaurant anywhere.
This is one of our favorite restaurants down the shore. We try to go every time we are in the area. It is so beautiful, the food is amazing and the service top notch! They always make it a special night.
Really great meal and beautiful place to spend the evening. We have already made our next reservations.
Outstanding time! We were treated like royalty! Everyone there “gets it”! Food was superb! Pricey-but you get what you pay for! Was our 1st time there. Will not be the last!
Excellent food and service! We dined here on President's day weekend as two couples celebrating the birthday of one of the group's members. Two of us had the Prix-Fix menu and two ordered off the standard menu. With the choices available on the Prix-Fix, everyone ended up with something completely different -- and EVERYTHING was excellent and well prepared! We also had very attentive, but not overbearing service that was well timed. In the background was a live pianist playing light, familiar music to add to the evening.
You will spend some $$ at this place, but since it is a BYOB, you save there on your drinks; and I firmly believe in "you get what you pay for" -- this place provided excellent food and service for the price you do pay!
One of our favorite places! Wonderful food, wonderful service, wonderful atmosphere!!!
You can't improve on perfection! Food was utterly amazing! Ambiance couldn't have been more perfect for our Valentines/ 25th Anniversary Dinner. I highly recommend The Peter Shields Inn for an awesome affair!
Absolutely outstanding once again. Consistently provides a great night on a very high level. RJ, our waiter, was awesome!
Chef Carl is a master of his craft. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. If you do eat here, ask for Dottie as a server. She was wonderful. Will be back soon!
We've been visiting the Peter Shields Inn for the last 15 years on Valentine's Day, awesome experience. Love the piano player.
Always a fantastic experience, this restaurant never disappoints. From the romantic atmosphere with live piano player to attentive staff and delicious food, this is one restaurant your really don’t want to miss.
OK, so this review isn't so good for a restaurant that is generally great.
We live nearby and go there often. On Valentines Day they featured an aged, prime NY strip "special" at $80 (I was salivating! ). I expected it to be better than their "normal" $60 NY strip..... It turned out to be a bad steak
There was a whole lot that added up to our bad experience including:
- it was Valentines Day and I wasn't inclined to make a scene (MY BAD!!!!)
- our server went missing for the entire time it took to eat our meal (we had to pour our own wine during the meal!)... no opportunity to complain...I wasn't about to get up and run around to find someone
- the food runner did ask how our meals were but before I could explain that my steak was poor, he laughed and ran away (I assume he misunderstood me?)
My steak was:
- Very small (probably a good thing)
- Mostly fat
- Over-cooked (somewhere past medium versus the request of medium rare)
- Tasted a bit "off"... "spoiled"
In summary, we paid $80 for one of the worst steaks I've ever had. I believe PSI might have gotten hosed by their supplier but that's just a guess. Holiday supply chains are sometimes difficult in their business.
My wife's meal (a different dish) was wonderful as is usual at PSI.
Our server finally returned for our dessert order but never asked about the entrée and I didn't volunteer (my bad again). The hostess did ask about our meals on our way out. I told the truth in a nice way and she offered to replace my meal....... REALLY?!... do they think we would want to hang around the crowded lobby waiting for a handout at 9:30 PM on Valentines Day? There had to be a better option. Ummm, quietly passing along a small gift certificate would seem like a win-win.
We'll go back to PSI because they are really good at what they do but I have to say that we probably won't go on Mothers Day or Valentines. I guess any business can screw up when they are stressed.
Tom is a rock star.
Excellent experience from the time you walk in until the time you leave! Service, food and atmosphere!! I would love to go during daylight hours to be able to see the ocean!
Obviously one of the top rated restaurants in the state waitresses was very helpful with the menu the table was perfect near a fireplace quiet atmosphere you can hear yourself talk for a change in a restaurant. The choices on a Valentine's week menu were exceptional and it tastes was out of this world I definitely will go back and it doesn't have to be a special occasion five stars
Dinner was excellent, as was our wait staff, in particular, Dorothy. She was very attentive, and handled an unpleasant guest, seated by us, with poise and professionalism. We haven't been to Peter Shields in at least four years. The food was delicious and the portions appeared larger than they use to be. There wasn't a green salad listed on the menu, but when we mentioned this to Dorothy, she was able to get us mesculan greens with beets and goat cheese. They have also added the piano player which was very nice, instead of piped in music. All in all, a wonderful evening. Thank you.
Another great dining experience at Peter Shields. RJ was so much fun! He was attentive, knowledgeable and had the best personality. We are stll laughing two days later.
The food was beyond amazing....... we cant wait to return.
