We did not have reservations but the staff was able to seat us in a very dark corner. Since we were all senior citizens and had difficulty seeing the staff was able to move us to a better lighted area as soon as a table opened up. The food was outstanding and the wait staff was terrific.

I cannot say enough in praise of Bridget and her staff at the Peter Shields Inn! We held the rehearsal dinner for 55 people for our son and daughter-in-law's wedding here last weekend and every aspect of the evening was phenomenal.

Bridget had assisted us [my daughter-in-law and me] in creating a simple menu from which our guests could select their appetizer, entree and dessert from several choices in each category. Everyone had wonderful things to say about all of the food; they evening was a glorious success. The service was attentive without being overbearing. All requests were fulfilled promptly and cheerfully. The decor is elegant and beautiful.

Amazingly, Bridget's outstanding sense of service and graciousness actually extended into the next day, when she assisted us in finding a solution to our problem of picture-taking on what turned out to be a rainy wedding day. She is truly a gem, and the Peter Shields Inn is the sparkling diamond of Cape May!

PSI continues to be one of my all time favorite restaurants at the shore. I have never had a bad meal. Worth every cent!

Went on a Wednesday night. The restaurant was busy, but not every table was taken.
Food was good, but service was very slow. Don't know if the problem was the kitchen or our server.
Warm inside. AC could have been higher, or just open some windows.

Had a wonderful dinner, great atmosphere & attention to detail.
Felt like being spoiled & this staff did just that. Stayed at the Inn 2 yrs. ago & this time we made a special trip to revisit for a classy dinner while staying up in Wildwood w/family. Worth your time & $.
