Excellent food, excellent service

We met old friends here for a quiet catch up and meal. Out waitress was Michele. The food was delicious, the prices were within reason and the service and atmosphere were perfect. Will definitely dine here again.

Food very bland. Not very tasty. We had clams casino. Very rubbery. Atmosphere very average. Good martini. Would not return. Many other places to choose from

I'm convinced that the Jersey Shore has a limited number of really good restaurants and that most cater to the tourist crowd by offering mediocre meals that easily feed large numbers of people. Oyster Bay Restaurant & Bar is no exception. A day on the beach always leaves me hungry for seafood and Oyster Bay Restaurant & Bar received good... More

This restaurant was a little fussy for my taste in beach destination places. The dining room was very formal but I simply loved the bar area & next time will either eat at the bar or reserve a table there. All our appetizers were sensational, especially the oysters on the 1/2 shell. I was a little disappointed with the entrees.... More

great food, awesome service and a must try in Cape May! We tried this on our first night but we were not disappointed. The entree specials / chef specials were very good (mahi-mahi with mango barbeque sauce) as well as the vast selection of desserts (we only had 1 but it was good -the cheesecake). Overall, will go back again... More

I cannot rave enough about Oyster Bay! It has it all- great food, service and atmosphere. I say "something for everyone" because their menu offers everything- delicious seafood, steaks, and pasta. You can choose to enjoy your meal in one of the beautiful dining rooms (for a more traditional dining experience) or in the equally beautiful bar (more casual and... More

We went to Oyster Bay on a very hot day! It was wonderful to actually be inside where it was cool and calm. As much as we enjoy the hustle and bustle of a busy day at the seashore, this was an oasis for a couple of hours. A little upscale. Food was very good and fresh. Waiter was professional.

We had dinner here on 6/19/15. No wait, prompt service and delicious food. I had London broil medium rare. The best cut of meat ever, cooked to perfection. My boyfriend has the surf and turf. Excellent value at only $45 for surf and turf. The lobster was succulent and tender, as was the steak! Definitely worth the price! Would go... More

We found this place on our last night in town and we are so glad we did. The menu has something for everyone and the atmosphere is very social. There is a great mix of locals, always a good sign, vacationers. The drinks are great and the food very good. There are many great places to dine in Cape May... More

I passed up this place for many years because it looks like a chain - don't make the same mistake. Delicious food and atmosphere.
