Everything but the salad was outstanding. The salad seemed old and we felt that iceberg lettuce was used as a filler, considering the price of the salad and the quality ingredients used in other courses we were disappointingly surprised.
Peter Shields is one of go to restaurants in Cape May. We are never dissatisfied. Our meals and service by Chris was fantastic!
Outstanding dining experience
Excellent evening the food was delicious the service terrific! Would definitely dine there again!!
It as great as usual. Delicious food, impeccable service, and view of the ocean.
Fantastic food and service. BYOB is a plus. The early menu is the best in town!
We have been coming to the Peter Shields since it first opened. My favorite restaurant. No one comes close.
We were guests at the Inn but clearly there were other people dining. Lovely setting and excellent service. Menu a bit confusing and in the end we ordered too much food. Heirloom tomato burrata salad very nice. The flank steak was well cooked and came with a flavorful sauce and potato stack. The portion size was generous. Desserts ok but not outstanding as were the earlier courses. It’s BYOB and they are happy to serve your wine otherwise you are limited to wines from the local NJ winery. I’d go back again but order fewer courses
Always a great meal with courteous staff and quaint setting. Never disappointed
PSI did not disappoint! The meal was perfection from the appetizer to the dessert. We will return again and again...
My wife and I ate there on Saturday, Feb 29th. The food was delicious and the server very helpful. We each ordered appetizers and decided to split an entree. It was a good decision because the entree was large and easily split by two. Highly recommend this restaurant for a special celebration or a romantic dinner out.
Always a wonderful meal at PSI. Outstanding service, a warm greeting from everyone from the moment of arrival. To hope to see you again. Our meals were excellent innovative presentation top quality ingredients cooked perfectly. We not only had a memorable meal but a memorable time.
I was very excited to try Peter Shields hearing such great reviews. We love Cape May and the dining opportunities. We were very disappointed with Peter Shields. I had the Leek Soup which was tasteless. I had to add pepper just to give it flavor. My aunt had the duck. It was awful. Dry and tasted like perfume. I had the pasta which was better than the soup and duck but wouldn't order again. The atmosphere was very nice but the food was sub-par
As always we enjoyed our dinner and the service of our waiter Chris . The porch seating was perfect for our Saturday evening date night .
Our experience at Peter Shield Inn was excellent as always. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable and the food is great! I highly recommend the shrimp and grits for a first course and my wife loved the beef tartar. For a second course I had the Radiatori and in was delicious, for the third course I had the Arctic Char and it was very good my wife had the Sea Bass which was excellent. For desert we had the creme brule' and the key lime trifle both were outstanding. We will be back again
We had the 7 course tasting menu and, while the food was delicious, the portions were way too large. I was only eating half of what I was given and I was still very full at the end of the dinner. For me the duck and the creme brûlée were stand out dishes. The duck skin was so crisp and the meat was tender and cooked to a perfect medium rare.
Continues to be my favorite restaurant in South Jersey.
Our server was outstanding and very entertaining. This place never disappoints.
Exceptional experience! Dorothy and all wait staff were welcoming, courteous and knowledgeable. Fine dining at its best. Every decorating touch and act of thoughtfulness was noticed and appreciated by myself and friend. Beautiful restaurant, service and food! This place will not disappoint!
Exquisite atmosphere, divine food, and a truly attentive and engaged staff made this an exceptional evening of nothing but enjoyment!
Celebrated our 48th Anniversary and the dinner topped off our weekend.
be sure to make a reservation ahead of time for an excellent meal
My wife and I have never been disappointed with PSI. The service was excellent and prompt and the food an absolute delight. My surf and turf featured a perfectly done filet and the seafood portion was a crab cake of all crab meat and no fillers. My wife opted for the duck breast, crispy on the outside and medium on the inside. All in all a great way to celebrate our anniversary.
We loved everything about our dining experience except for the noise level in the dining room on the right. There was a party of 5 seated at a round table when the 3 of us arrived. Yes, we could hear their conversation but the piano player in the lobby slightly overpowered them, which was great. The drinks and first course was exquisite. By the time our entrees arrived, a large party of 7 sat immediately next to us. They were so loud from the time they arrived until the time we left, that it was very difficult to enjoy our meal. The two large parties competed in noise to the point that it felt like we were in a sports bar. I was quite surprised because I thought PSI was considered fine dining. If we were to return, I'd specifically request that we not be sat in that dining room again. Although I had confirmed my reservation through Open Table, I received a call that day from the restaurant reconfirming my booking. Since you had the schedule in front of you that day and were well-aware of the other parties of 5 and 7 arriving around the same time, perhaps you might have reconsidered seating a party of 2 or 3 in that room. Perhaps over the phone you might have asked the guests in the smaller parties, if they had any special requests for their dining experience, such as noise level like a quiet dining experience or something a little more lively.
The food was good, but lacked the flavor and spice we have come to love in other Cape May restaurants. My wife’s duck was only slightly warm and my tuna was cold. Both plates for our entrees were cold to the touch which we felt contributed to the coolness of the food.
Always our first choice in Cape May. Had the Chef's tasting menu for $125 each which may sound rich, but it was well worth it, particularly considering the BYOB policy. Dorothy gets an A+ for service. Can't wait to return.
peter shields never disappoints. had a great dinner Friday night. from start to finish it was excellent. love going everytime we are in cape may.
Perfect from start to finish! The cheeses are excellent. The beet salad is always delicious. The new shrimp and grits is outstanding as is the surf and turf. The crab cake was all crab. Peter was our server. He is a true professional. Only there when needed. This is our favorite restaurant in Cape May.
Perfection ! Outstanding service. Dorthy made the best recommendations. Did not want to leave. Highly recommended
