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 time! We were treated like royalty! Everyone there “gets it”! Food was superb! Pricey-but you get what you pay for! Was our 1st time there. Will not be the last!

Excellent food and service! We dined here on President's day weekend as two couples celebrating the birthday of one of the group's members. Two of us had the Prix-Fix menu and two ordered off the standard menu. With the choices available on the Prix-Fix, everyone ended up with something completely different -- and EVERYTHING was excellent and well prepared! We also had very attentive, but not overbearing service that was well timed. In the background was a live pianist playing light, familiar music to add to the evening.

You will spend some $$ at this place, but since it is a BYOB, you save there on your drinks; and I firmly believe in "you get what you pay for" -- this place provided excellent food and service for the price you do pay!

You can't improve on perfection! Food was utterly amazing! Ambiance couldn't have been more perfect for our Valentines/ 25th Anniversary Dinner. I highly recommend The Peter Shields Inn for an awesome affair!
