We went for my Birthday Dinner. 6 of us in January. Every single thing we ordered was outstanding. The staff was excellent. The building is beautiful, comfortable and welcoming. We all agreed that it was one of the all time best meals any of us has had. We’ll definitely be back!

As in the past the dining was excellent. Menu selections were outstanding. Sean our waiter was wonderful, full of suggestions and pleasant conversation . Ben was also a pleasure to talk with and is excited about working for Peter Shields. Only disappointment was the lack of disables parking and convenient entrance for those with walking disability. We will be bach!

This was a return visit for my wife and I, a new experience for our friends. They loved it and were blown away. The atmosphere is first rate, the food top notch, the setting luxurious, the service impeccable.

My smoked seafood chowder, a special, was unbelievable. The salad of the day was exquisite. Entrees were very good, although my fish entree was overcooked and somewhat disappointing.

A major concern, although not a fault of the Inn, was a party of eight celebrating a birthday, seated next to us, who arrived having obviously already enjoyed a happy hour, and proceeded to dominate the room.

We will return to enjoy this lovely restaurant.

This was are second time there, the first time was great. This time service atmostphe was wonderful however I ordered fish and it was over done. The night was not a real busy night so I didn't see a reason for this. My husband's meal was good and the desserts were excellent. I would recommend this restaurant because every place can mess up now and then

Always enjoy dining at PSI. No matter when I visit, the food is delicious, seasonal and well presented. The service is top notch, as always. However, you should be ready to sit and stare at the menu for 10+ minutes because deciding what to get is SO HARD!!!

What a fantastic evening at PSI. It really doesn’t get better than this. It was venison night for me and my wife. She ordered the venison sausage with home made pasta (fussily - corkscrew). Thank you executive chef Carl for investing in a pasta machine. Your pasta dishes are so delicious and creative. I ordered the pan roasted Venison which was the bomb. If you never had venison you must try it at PSI and don’t turn your nose up to it for its not gamy at all. Best meal out in over 2 months. Chef Carl keep the unique pasta dishes coming. Hands down the best restaurant in CM. Our waiter Peter is one of our favorite waiters at PSI and always steers us in the right direction. Chris also. Thank you all for a great evening.

The restaurant was beautiful! The piano player was great. The service was fair the waitress seemed as if she had better things to do but there were many people helping her. The food although was good was not exceptional nor interesting or creative. I am glad i tried it and they were so busy they obviously do not need me to come back.

The poke was mind blowing, the venison was out of this world, we had a local wine that was very tasty and reasonably priced. No room for dessert. The service was outstanding, our waiter was very friendly, and the ambiance was delightful. I would highly recommend the place and intend to return.

We went to Peter Shields Inn for our anniversary the day after Christmas. PSI was decorated tastefully and added to the celebratory ambiance for our special day. We had a table of 10 people. The staff was most enjoyable and professional!!! It showed that our satisfaction was their primary priority. All our guests were amazed at how nice the restaurant was. What stood out to us was the show of waiters that delivered our meals all at the same time. All meals (scallops, salmon, steak and chicken ordered) were exceptional. I personally had the chicken and I can honestly say it was the best chicken I have ever eaten! We did not have dessert as were all satisfied after our meals. PSI made our anniversary a memorable celebration! We look forward to coming back.

We have eaten at the Peter Shields for years and find it to be one of the best restaurants in Cape May. The ambience can not be beaten. This time ( two days before Christmas ) the food was just OK and our waiter had to ask us three times what we ordered. The food was not worth the price but we love Peter Shields and will be back. If they keep raising their prices, they may price themselves out for us.

This was our third dinner at PSI, this time in winter. The mansion looked fabulous, tastefully festive with gold and silver trimmings inside and out. The ambiance is my favorite thing about PSI, it is at once luxurious but also warm and cozy. You feel pampered, but without pretention. We enjoyed the winter offerings of creamy spiced pumpkin soup (soups are always a good bet here) and a deliciously earthy homemade pasta dish with venison sausage, mushrooms and greens. The beef tartare with it's "horseradish foam" left something to be desired however. Our main courses- we had the venison, branzino, scallops, and hanger steak-were all perfectly presented and cooked and garnished with lovely complementary sides. Desserts of maple creme brulee and chocolate lava were tasty, but not exceptional. Our server, Dorothy was low-key and efficient. Room was lively, but pleasant conversation could flow. So all in all, another enjoyable evening spent!

We took my son in law for his Birthday expecting to enjoy a typical lovely dinner at PSI instead we were seated in the first room with a loud and obnoxious group of people and we we’re disappointed. They should have been put in a room alone. One table did ask to be moved but we just hung in there. Our service was great as always and the cuisine excellent. Just not used to it being so loud.
We had a nice time in spite of the rude people who were extremely loud and using bad language.
Thank you
