PSI was great. The location is perfect directly across the street from the beach. The food was really delicious. I had the chef tasting menu and all the course were amazing, especially the veal. My husband ordered the tuna tartar with was very fresh. I enjoyed my mushroom soup a lot! They have English toffee cake on the dessert menu (which is rarely seen on menus) and it was superb! PSI is definitely bring your wine!

Great atmosphere. Good food. Had steak duo. Worth the price on ocassion. Spent $148.00 and brought my own wine. Could use some lower priced options

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.

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.

Outstanding for sure, is a Peter Shields experience. From the warm welcome at the door and the live pianist greeting you as you enter, the bar remains high here for the entire evening. This past Saturday night was our third visit in the past year and a half with the same friends, and each one of us has always been completely satisfied, and then some. The staff is professional, attentive and pleasant, and the food is excellent. This is a BYOB and we enjoy bringing several wine choices with us, and they are well taken care of and served to us as if we had selected them off a fine wine list. The regular menu and specials are excellent, but don't ever hesitate to try the chef's pairings or a prix fixe menu when they are offered; I cant imagine anyone being disappointed. Peter Shields is our new favorite place in Cape May, and there are a lot of good competitors!
