We were only there this trip in Cape May one evening and we ate there. That should say it all. Always tasty and properly prepared food. Reservations recommended.

3 couples visited for dinner on a recent Saturday night. I was disappointed with the food. I had the crab cakes which were mushy and had shells in them.

Wonderful food and fast friendly service makes this a pleasant dining experience. The menu has local seafood and land lovers steaks. Tasty soups and starters add to the entrée. Save room for some great desserts.

On my recent trip to Cape May I asked the manager of the hotel I was staying at what was a really good place to get seafood, they recommended this restaurant. I had to New England clam bake, shrimp scallops and lobster, almost too much to read really delicious. Very good service, reasonably priced. You can park on the street.

This was the first time having dinner at the Oyster Bay in Cape May. We were pleasantly surprised as it relates to the atmosphere and food I had the lamb which was the special for the evening. It was really good. My wife had the crab cakes which by her opinion were ok. They were fried and has some fillers.... More

I have been traveling to Cape May, NJ for three decades. I don't recall the restaurant from prior visits but I am so glad I found it this year. The service was very good and the food was absolutely delicious. Every course was cooked to perfection and I found the prices to be very reasonable.
