Very disappointed. We enjoyed it last summer on our vacation. Now I won't go back. We were given a bad table (was it because we didn't drink wine). I couldn't cut the rare beef tenderloin. Sent it back to be cooked longer- still not tender. I had filet mignon the night before at the Ebbitt Room that was so tender. We waited a long time for dessert. The mgr came to our table and said there was a mix- up and took it off our bill. (Was this because I sent my dinner back?). Then the check came -$214. I told my husband to look it over and he found another bill for $133!?!? The lower amount was correct. They gave us 2 bills for the same dinner. Very sad and disappointed. We saved it for the last night of our vacation. Never again.

The Peter Shields Inn is perfect for a romantic dinner. I took my girlfriend there for Valentine's Dinner and we were impressed from the minute we arrived. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. They had rose petals all along the window sills with roses on the table and they had a piano player playing their grand piano in the main lobby. We started off with ordering the Butternut Squash with Smoked Trout and it was unbelievable. For our main course we had their Tenderloin and Scallops and both were out of this world. Their desserts were a nice ending to our meal. The sorbet is house made and delicious and their creme brule was just as good. The whole time it felt like we had four waiters as we never had to ask for fill ups on our water or wine. From start to finish this is one of the best restaurants to go to in Cape May. We will be going here again the next time we are Cape May!

The ambience is excellent. The decor is well done and the tables are spread out so the noise is at a minimum. The food and service were wonderful. We had a appetizer from the nightly special list which was Ceviche. This was light and tasty. My wife had the Halibut and I had the special fish, both dishes were excellent. She had the Creme Brulee for dessert and that also was excellent.

Finally dined at PeterShields and so glad we did! Service, food, ambiance are all 5 star; can not wait to return. We now have a memorable night to remember celebrating our 48th anniversary.

best meal I've had in years... no reviews hold any merit because you cannot possibly taste a meal like that and have any concerns.
