Excellant food. Very fast and friendly service. Expensive for what you get. No place to park, lot was full, even at 5:30 pm.

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.

There were 4 of us eating dinner. We made reservations since we were there on a Saturday night. The atmosphere was warm and cozy. The staff was efficient. Our meals were delicious, and we had plenty of food. I ordered one of the specials, which was nut-crusted salmon. It was beautifully presented with stir-fry vegetables and rice. and had a... More

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.

We've driven by Oyster Bay a number of times and always thought of trying the food. We did this year and were very pleasantly surprised. Over this summer we visited Oyster Bay three times with three different sets of friends with probably eight different entrees. Everyone raved about the food. It was an excellent experience for all. We will definitely... More

My husband and I always eat at Oyster Bay when we come to Cape May. Pleasant decor, friendly service, great food! Parking can be tricky, but that really isn't the restaurant's fault, lack of parking just proves how popular they are! Delicious, fresh seafood, but something for everyone if you're not a fan of seafood. Nice drink menu and decent... More

Awesome!! This will definitely be on Our list for "Fine Dining" when in Cape May. We were in Cape May for Our Anniversary and having a special meal at the Oyster Bay Steak & Seafood was a great way to celebrate the occasion. The dining room had a real nice vibe to it for the shore...energetic but not too noisey.... More

WE had several restaurants on our list but this name kept being mentioned. Most of those on our list opened at 5 but we were getting hungry so we went to the bar at Oyster Bay. We thought that we would have a drink and an app. at the bar and then have dinner. Well the bar menu was so... More
