Second times a charm!

My husdband and I dined at Peter Sheilds last year while visiting Cape May as a couple. We decided to bring the entire family this year. Our 4 adult children, their spouses and our 4 grandchildren. We got a babysitter this evening, as this is not really a good place for kids, although we saw several families with bored children while we dined there. The food was excellent, even better than we remembered from the previous visit. Last time we had been seated on the screened in porch, but it was incredibly hot and humid making it tough to enjoy the food. This time we were at a lovely long table inside. Our server was a friendly guy who was really good with our large group. Like MANY of the Cape May restaurants we visited this one is a BYOB! This is a special place!

Spectacular food as always, service by Shawn also wonderful. He is a delight, friendly and informative. We will definitely be back!! Tuna tartar appetizer is the best I’ve ever had anywhere, please keep on the menu always!!

Never Disappoints - Perfection

Whenever my family and I visit Cape May, we always have dinner at The Peter Shields Inn.
The service, food and atmosphere are truly outstanding.
The corn soup, tuna tartare, scallops, chicken and steak are amazing. It’s impossible to make a bad choice from their extensive and diverse menu. The wait staff treat all guests as family/old friends and are extremely welcoming.
Beautiful music is played by a pianist in the background. All contributes to an amazing evening and unforgettable dinning experience.
