This is one of the better restaurants in the area. No doubt the food and service rival the best in Cape May but also the entire state.

Visited during Restaurant Week. We ordered from both menus. Haven't been here in over a year and looking forward to our visit.
As always the porch is a lovely venue for a meal. My husband always enjoyed the unique menu offerings (game, So African Lobster tails, etc) that the Restaurant offered. This time we were both disappointed with the choices.
My Calamari was very good, a nice choice, for appetizer
Husband didn't think Potato Leek soup was anything special (bland) and was cool. He likes hot soup!
I had the hangar steak and crab cake. Crab cake was bland and not sure why hangar steak is the beef of choice.
My husband had the grilled filet and he said that was tasteless as well.
Desserts were fine...We ate alot of bread...that was good.
Cost $150 for the 2 of us...Too much for average meal.

My family just celebrated my brother's wedding at Peter Shields. Bridget and the rest of the staff were absolutely fantastic. I don't think my brother and sister-in-law could have asked for a better day. We continue to receive compliments on the food, the perfect location, and the comfortable, welcoming atmosphere. Thank you!!

We have visited Peter Shields restaurant each year we stay in Cape May or Wildwood Crest, which has been over 5 years. Everyone in the family enjoys the selections and presentation of the food. The wait staff is very professional.
