Simply Extraordinary! We had our wedding at the Peter Shields Inn this past weekend. They graciously accommodated 100+ of our guests and provided extraordinarily professional service, extreme quality gourmet food, a scenic overlook that cannot be beat, and a feeling of home that cannot be matched. We are absolutely ecstatic with the outcome of the event.

BAD!!! We arrived at 2PM in hopes of takinga quiet nap in Cape May before attending wedding down the road. Turns out the whole first floor is host to a wedding here. I mean the check in desk is literally the DJ booth. I put my bags down next to wedding parties table by the front door. Wedding parties don't fit in here (literally) Thats all okay but the music and DJ are so loud its almost comical. As we sit in bed I feel like Im in the same room. Can't sleep through this. My advice to the owner, if you host a wedding you should at least fill the rooms with guests of the wedding. Its NOT appropriate to literally mix the public in with the wedding. I mean the dance floor is at the bottom of the only public stairs. Max

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.

Romantic ambiance and delicious food! Loved the pianist playing indoors, or if you want to sit overlooking the beach outside that option is great too. Attentive service; loved the summer corn soup, butternut squash bisque, hangar steak, and filet mignon with mushrooms and balsamic onions. Husband enjoyed the Tuna & Salmon duo as well. Probably the most gorgeous restaurant in Cape May; very expensive but worth it.

I love that you mentioned our pianist, Alicia! I definitely think it adds something special to the experience. We truly appreciate the feedback, and we hope to spend another wonderful evening with you and your husband in the near future. All the best, Carl Messick – Executive Chef, Peter Shields Inn

gorgous old mansion faces the atlantic. would be a great experience as an inn with restaurant, but somehow it doesn't work as a restaurant. the servers are loud bossy bulgarians. byo is a plus to hold down costs. lost its luster.
