“Our Cape May Favorite”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

It is difficult to have one favorite restaurant in Cape May, but the Peter Shields Inn has definitely become our top favorite. The view is unmatched, and the service and food are phenomenal.

“Beautiful Classic Inn”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

The rooms are very tastefully done, there is wine and cheese every afternoon, we didn't get to eat dinner there but our breakfasts were very good! It's in a lovely location surrounded by other classic buildings, beach directly across the street, so pretty, loved it!

“How could it get any better?”
Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

An early spring visit was new to us as this is usually a summertime dinning event. Came to find out the season doesn't matter as the atmosphere, menu and service is as enjoyable, supreme and impeccable as ever. While it still a BYOB establishment, they now offer a selection of "Cape May" wines. Five out of five stars, come to PSI for a special anniversary, birthday, or any reason to celebrate life and time down at the Jersey shore.

“Gracious meal in gracious style”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

We had a lovely dinner at the PSI on a Sunday evening. It was very quiet. The service was great and the meals were artistically prepared. They do offer some wines by the bottle- I should have brought others to stand up to the terrific food.

“Amazing Dinner”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

While staying at PSI, my husband and I had dinner at their restaurant one night. The service was excellent. The food was delicious. And the atmosphere warm and elegant. It was one of the nicest dinners we have ever had. Highly recommend it to anyone.
