Had an extremely enjoyable dinner off pre fixe menu. The blackened Mshi Mahi was exquisite, presentation from appetizer to dessert was awesome. Server RJ was very attentive and professional. One of our favorite places to dine.

Really good experience. The food is unbeatable and service is attentive and professional. We were greeted with a smile and seated quickly once we arrived. Our waiter did his best to you understand and meet our dietary needs

With that said the restaurant itself needs to be updated. From the outside the restaurant looks beautiful. The inside is a different story. Our table was really unsteady and the wallpaper was in noticeably poor condition

Food was very good. Service was pleasant and good but slow. One particular server was making such a fuss over my spouse that it became awkward and annoying. Staff was just off that night. But the food is always excellent. We love it here.

Always a wonderful experience! It is the best place we have eaten in Cape May. A little pricy but worth the extravagance. Each dish is presented well The salmon and veal dishes were exceptional as was the pasta. The service was also great!

We've always had good experiences at Peter Shields. On this occasion we went for the 'prix fixe' - three courses for $33. Exceptional food for the price, everything we chose was first class. Our entrees, Mahi-mahi and pork osso buco, were both delicious and beautifully presented. Service friendly and prompt. Try it!

Usually a 5+ experience. This time my wife and I thought it was good, but not great. Server had zero personality which never helps. I’m sure we’ll be back, but we both left a little disappointed.

The food was absolutely incredible. I had the lamb duo which was delicious and cooked to perfection. The desserts were good as well. The service was outstanding; attentive, knowledgable, and friendly. Another diner had the short rib and raced about it. The restaurant is BYOB and they will open and chill your wine if needed.

PSI is a beautiful Inn. My husband and I are locals however this was our first dining experience at PSI, our hopes were high. Unfortunately, PSI missed its mark. The service was very nice and the menu selection was exciting however the taste left quite a bit to be desired. The octopus appetizer was good but not great, as it was very chewy. My husbands green salad was nice but what you would expect. I had the salmon, very good and my husbands duck was the same. We both ordered dessert. My husbands toffee pudding was actually a muffin, literally a muffin & mine was a lemon bar which was lemon curd that had way too much gelatin and was quite rubbery- neither were nearly sweet enough. Our server did ask us how our meal was & we graciously replied fine however there was no follow up from a manager or server thereafter. We brought our own wine. Our meal was $177 before tip which is quite a lot for just a mediocre dinner. Unfortunately we won’t return to PSI but definitely will continue to experience other restaurants in Cape May.
