Peter Shields Inn Ratings and Reviews

Can't say enough. From the greeting to departure, everything was impeccable. Service, food, selections, all excellent. Went with my wife for a belated Valentine dinner. Shared yellow fin tuna appy. She had hanger steak and I had bacon wrapped monk fish for entrees. I had capaccino and forgot my wife's dessert as it disappeared quickly. Remember to bring nice bottles of wine to this byob. The only drawback is price, but unfortunately the other Cape May restaurants have caught up so PSI does not seem that outrageous anymore.

Peter Shields offers most of what you are looking for. Ambience, romance, relaxed dining in an unhurried space, impeccable service, condusive to conversation & romance. The food unfortunately , although presentation is pleasing the food is NOT. It was a lovely anniversary celebration, they surprised us with champagne after dinner & it was a very relaxing evening but we were extremely disappointed by the food.

I live in West Cape may. Everyone who lives or vacations in Cape May must have at least one dining experience in this restaurant. Food was creative, exciting and simply OUTSTANDING!!!! Service was first rate. I dine out quite frequently and this was by far one of the best all around dining experiences i have had.

Peter Shields never disappoints. Seasonal menu options always on point. Mushroom soup and pear salad were very flavorful. Oysters very fresh and tasty. Beef Tenderloin, medium rare was excellent. Leave room for dessert. Chocolate lava cake is the best.

Our second Valentine dinner there. Great historical building with beautiful ocean front view from our seat on the porch. Very creative and delicious food. BYOB. Impeccable service. We went at 5:15 and it was just right. Started to get noisier by 6:00 pm but very tolerable. I gave 4 stars for value this year because ladies did not get a long stem rose after dinner this year and the Valentine menu, and which was lovely, was only one choice this year. Last year there were two choices on the special menu. Overall just an outstanding dinner and evening with my Valentine. Looking forward to next year!

I keep reviewing over and over because we go often! Have always had a delicious meal and excellent service so won't repeat details, but have often gone for special occasions, entertaining guests, and quiet off season dinners with friends and neighbors. No one
could ever go wrong choosing this restaurant!

The staff was very attentive , courteous and informative. The food was excellent especially the trout. The dessert was too common. Chocolate lava cake had poor taste. Wish there had been at least another choice of dessert.

My husband & I enjoyed a romantic prix fixed birthday dinner that was fabulous. Other tables got glasses of champagne that I overheard their server say "it's complimentary" & we did not get any. Just wondering what the story was.

Food was incredible. One side that was to be served hot was still cool after sending it back. The food preparation and taste were superior to overcome some challenges experienced.
We were the last seating on a Saturday evening. We had a wonderful table for two on the porch. Service started out quite attentive, but became lax as the night proceeded. Unfortunately close to our table was a large group that was excessively loud with intermittent foul language. Upon request, the porch doors were closed.

My husband and I received our reservation as a gift and were extremely impressed with everything! As we are more the "comfort food" types, the menu listing gave us the opportunity to explore foods that we have never had before, and all I can say is WOW!
