Peter Shields Inn Ratings and Reviews

We brought friends who were visiting from out of town .My husband and I were here last week and initially I wanted to go elsewhere. But I am happy we returned to Peter Shields. The service was exceptional and the food did not disappoint. Everyone enjoyed their entrees.
There is a lot of thought given to food presentation. My scallops were perfect not overdone and I enjoyed the marinated cous-cous.. My husband ordered the chicken - juicy and there was nothing left on his plate. We will definitely return.

The ambience is so special- service was superb- I thought the food was good but not outstanding. Corn soup was mediocre- heirloom tomatoes with burrata was truly excellent- scallops were not adequately seared and though otherwise cooked properly were not memorable, my husbands halibut was dry, the gnocchi too dense--overall not even good...though the desserts "looked" great we did not have so no comment. This is still a beautiful venue worth giving another try.

What a beautiful evening for my wife's 60 th birthday out on the porch during a thunderstorm. The tasting menu was superb as usual and the service was impeccable. Background continuous live piano music completed the ambiance. We have dined at PSI several times and have been throughly impressed by the consistency. PSI is a gem in Cape May!

Peter Shields hit it out of the park. I had the chef's tasting menu with corn soup, scallops, and NY Strip steak. All were absolutely fabulous. Cape May has many wonderful restaurants but this one is at the very top of the list.

Dinner at Peter Shields Inn was fantastic. We ordered the Four Course Sampler and it was delicious! Everything as to perfection exploding with flavor. The wait staff were friendly and helpful. The view was beautiful (ocean/beach). Overall, it was a mean out. I highly recommend it.

This was our fifth visit to PSI during our two weeks in Cape May (one week in July, one in August). PSI has quickly emerged as our top choice restaurant in Cape May, and in a vibrant culinary scene like Cape May, that is saying something.
The cuisine is superb. At various times we had the four-course tasting menu comprising a wonderful amuse bouche of tuna tartare, corn soup, scallops, sirloin steak and chocolate mousse cake with vanilla ice cream, the surf (lobster) and turf (veal chop) special, filet mignon and halibut at various times. All were high quality, artfully presented and creatively designed culinary delights of the highest order.
The service is beyond impeccable. Both professional and friendly, the staff beginning with maitre'D Aleanna (sp.?) bend over backwards to make you feel special, appreciated and comfortable. This service excellence posture extends to every single member of the staff.
Adding to the quality of the cuisine and exemplary service is a setting and interior appointments that epitomize ambience. With the gentle sound of live piano music in the background, and the elegant and refined appointments of a bygone era, PSI is a restaurant with which one could easily fall in love.

Lovely setting in a Victorian B&B with views of the ocean. Live piano added to ambiance. Menu varied with great choices everything delicious and presented beautifully. Changes to offerings served without problem. Highly recommend

We go back every year. The food is well prepared and well thought out. The restaurant is very elegant yet casual. You are missing out by not trying this place, you can opt for the early seating menu. I highly recommend reservation as far in advance as you can especially on weekends and holidays. Thanks again for another wonderful dinner.

We thoroughly enjoyed Peter Shields. The atmosphere was nice, linen table clothes, candles, etc. We especially enjoyed the pianist that performed throughout dinner. The dinner menu was very diverse and they paid attention to the details of each course. There were some selections that would even please hard-core foodies. We like the BYOB of many of the restaurants in Cape May and this one was no different. Our server, although she was not overly friendly, was on top of keeping our glasses filled and was willing to share information when we encouraged her to. We will be back for sure and would highly recommend to anyone staying in Cape May.

Once again we celebrated our anniversary (our 44th) at Peter Shields and had a wonderful evening. I had requested a table in a quiet area and that was where we were seated. Petar, our wonderful waiter, brought us some bubbly complements of PS. Nice touch! I started with the Crab Salad and my wife had the Wild Arugula and Mixed Green Salad. Both were fresh and very tasty. We each followed the salads with a large Hanger Steak. I can't believe I cleaned off the plate; great flavor and it was well worth the price. Service and food were exceptional. We will return to PS next year to celebrate our 45th.

Peter Shields Inn is BYOB. Remember this and eveything will be fine. My beef tenderloin entre and the soup dejour were superb. There is attention to detail in both the food preparation and service standards. Although there is always room for improvement, Peter Shields Inn is a must stop for anyone seeking the finer dining experience in Cape May NJ.

Enjoyed the day scallops and Alaskan Halibut both very fresh, sweet and prepared well. Nice it's a BYOB as well. Waiter very attentive and offered up his suggestions and answered questions. Across from beach and they honored our request to sit by a window for the view.

I was disappointed and sad about my most recent experience at Peter Shields. The beef tenderloin was not tender. I had eaten beef tenderloin at The Washington Inn and the Ebbit Room during our vacation week and it was delicious- melted in your mouth. Not true at Peter Shields. I sent the meat to be cooked longer and it still was disappointing. I felt uncomfortable during the dinner. Was it because I sent my meal back or we didn't order wine? Dessert took long to come ( the manager took care of the price of the dessert. Our check had 2 bills in it. We almost paid the more expensive bill before we realized the mistake. We didn't feel welcome. It was saved for the last night of our vacation and I was disappointed and sad about the whole experience.

The food, service and location was excellent. We went for the early-bird menu and were not rushed at all. We ate outside on the porch and the view was amazing. The oysters, steak and fish dishes were delicious. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and look forward to returning on our next visit to Cape May.

Peter Shields Inn was awesome! It was for a birthday celebration and it couldn't have been any better. The Inn was beautiful. It was a perfect setting for a perfect dinner. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for fine dining and a beautiful atmosphere. They had a very talented pianist as well.
