My wife and I have been here a few times previously and have always been happy about our decision. We were in town for one night. We sat in the bar and it was lively. The food was very respectable. Staff was very attentive. This place is very dependable with good food at a fair price.

This restaurant is one of the best in Cape May. The bar area is huge, and they always have good happy hour specials. The seafood is amazing. They opened up again over President's Day weekend, and it was mobbed with people. It's a local favorite.

The service and food is outstanding! My family and friends have joined me several times a season for many years. Anytime we want to eat out, everyone always says "Oyster Bay" Oyster Bay makes dining out a pleasure with groups large or small, Parking is tight at times but they do have a lot behind the restaurant.

We were only there this trip in Cape May one evening and we ate there. That should say it all. Always tasty and properly prepared food. Reservations recommended.

3 couples visited for dinner on a recent Saturday night. I was disappointed with the food. I had the crab cakes which were mushy and had shells in them. My husband had a grouper special which he liked. The dishes were all served with what appeared to be frozen vegetables.The service although friendly was very slow. The prices were high... More

Wonderful food and fast friendly service makes this a pleasant dining experience. The menu has local seafood and land lovers steaks. Tasty soups and starters add to the entrée. Save room for some great desserts.
