Peter Shields Inn Ratings and Reviews
Not as good as our last visit. Somewhat disappointed. Our waiter Chris acted as if we were a nuisance. He chatted friendly with his other tables but seemed to be bothered by us. It was our 50th Anniversary dinner wanted it to be special. I didn't even ask him to take our picture. He never checked on us to see if everything was ok.
My husband and I had dinner at Peter Shields on May 21. The service was excellent and we were both extremely pleased with the dishes we ordered (oysters on the half-shell as an appetizer, halibut for me, beef tenderloin for him, and date pudding for dessert). The interior decor is what I'd call simple elegance. The front of the building is gorgeous and great for photos. The only negative: the menu said that my meal was accompanied with English pea puree, but the quantity was so scarce that it should have been described as a drizzle. (The dish also came with asparagus and gnocchi ... both delicious .... but I was expecting and hoping more of the pea puree. ) Overall, an excellent dining experience !
why do upscale restaurants,or any restaurants,insist on mixing couples and large groups?this was our wedding anniversary(undeclared to proprietors)and we were seated in a lovely room,within minutes the staff began setting up a table for 10 adjacent to us.it was a business dinner.i was gagging on the tales of college football exploits by a group of elderly gents edged on by brown nosing women.this venue was on our list for several years but with so many fine dining options in cape may,never again.
My family had the pleasure of dining at PSI for Mothers Day Brunch. The service was fabulous, the food was incredible, so many delicious flavors, more than adequate portions, and great price, and the overall experience was top notch. We are a family who enjoys well prepared fine food with a great value and have traveled throughout the US eating at various establishments. By far PSI is one of if not the best we have experienced so far. Well done! We will return!!
We had a lovely Mother's day brunch. Three courses for $40. Everything was great. We're local and we're regulars again. This should be on everyone's list when they come to Cape May. While not inexpensive it's BYO so that makes it much more affordable than a comparable restaurant with a bar.
We were celebrating Mother's Day. Beautiful day in Cape May and a wonderful venue. The food was delicious and the three courses worked out perfectly. I have never seen so much lobster in a lobster roll. The salmon was cooked to perfection and the desserts were out of this world. I have to say that the coffee is the best I have had in long time. We will definitely go again this summer and bring a few bottle of wine.
Three words for Peter Sheilds-Ex-Cel-Lent! The food was outstanding- I had an Alaskan Halibut which was superb, along with all of the exciting sides that it came with: white and green asparagus, morels, and ricotta gnocchi- a spring time poem. Service was excellent; ( a shout out to Amy) not intrusive but was always provided when needed. Of course the ambiance is very classy with even a view of the sea from where we sat. BYO is a nice way to cut back on the somewhat pricey menu.
PSI is my favorite restaurant in Cape may NJ. The food is consistently delicious and the service very friendly. There is a prix fix menu for $40 pp prior to 6:00pm that includes 3 courses. The Inn has rooms available if you would like to spend the night. I love that it is a BYOB and also features tastings from Cape may Winery during the summer out on the porch. When you make your reservation, please ask for Amy to be your waitress for the Amy. She is a delight!
What a delicious meal! The Spring Garlic soup was unique and very tasty and the soft shell crabs were some of the best I have ever had. Don't miss the date bread pudding with warm caramel sauce. In a city which caters in large part to tourists, this restaurant is truly tops.
Celebrated our wedding anniversary here. Restaurant offered 2 glasses of champagne to celebrate the occasion. Piano is piped softly into speakers throughout restaurant for ambiance. Pianist played our wedding song as the waitress brought desert. View of beach and ocean is breathtaking. Service is awesome. Everyone from entering to leaving is courteous and kind and go out of their way to make you feel at home.
We celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary at PSI and had a nice, quiet , romantic evening. The atmosphere was nice, the service was great and the meal was fabulous. Being a byob allows you to put a personal touch on the evening. I would highly recommend PSI!
We dine here several times a year. Always excellent. The hostess and wait staff very attentive. Carl, the chef, prepares the most delicious meals, and the presentation cannot be surpassed. This evening was a birthday celebration. Our dessert came with a candle, making it special. Highly recommend.
