A delightful place for a family get-together! We entertained our out-of-town family on Sunday evening. We enjoyed the prix fixe menu, and it received rave reviews from everyone!

The Peter Shields Inn lived up to its five star rating in every way.
The romantic, yet laid back ambiance; the attentive and friendly service; the incredible and delicious food deserve every one of those five stars. It was well worth every penny, and we will return again!

This is a consistently excellent restaurant in Cape May. Having it be a BYOB destination makes it very affordable with stellar ambiance.

Party of 4...Third year in a row for NYE weekend. Disappointed in the surf and turf entree...scallops over salted and inedible. Salmon sausage patty was dry and over cooked with little flavor. Appetizers (soup) were excellent (oysters wonderful). One entree originally removed from bill. Took persistence to finally have both taken off the menu. Offer of dessert (head hostess) on the House was nice, but the original offer should have been to take the two surf and turf entrees off our bill. After a warm welcome and banter throughout our meal, our waiter seemed perturbed at the end. By the way, we tipped on the entire bill (including the two entrees removed). This was a kitchen problem. Not in service. After always loving PSI (was there for dinner in September), we left feeling awkward and a bit shamed. Sigh.

I had one if the best meals of my life at the Peter Shields Inn. We chose it for its location, walking distance from our hotel, and expected a typical high-end beach resort meal. The food was spectacular in its preparation and ingredients, the service was polite and appropriately timed for a leisurely meal. They brought dessert with a birthday candle and instead of the usual waitstaff singing, the pianist just segued into "Happy Birthday ". Classy. We will definitely return for special occasions.

I had such a wonderful Halibut (my absolute favorite) dinner at the Peter Shields Inn in Nov celebrating my friend's birthday that I decided to do the same for mine in Dec. Only this time I also brought my fiance. He had the NY, I had the fillet and my friend had the salmon. It was all superb. They both raved about the tartar appetizer which I tasted and also loved particularly the tuna. I also very much enjoyed my salad and especially the chocolate lava cake for dessert. The service and ambiance were also both excellent. Thank you for making both of our birthdays very special.
