I’ve tried this place 2 times with the same results. Limited menu, tasteless food but great service. The bar area was packed but the restaurant was deserted.

We have been dining at Oyster Bay for 28 years and never had a bad meal. We have many favorite meals there and their food is delicious especially their crab cakes. Their seafood always fresh and great presentations of the meal. Oyster Bay does not dissappoint.

There were good parts and bad parts to our experience. We liked the ambiance of the restaurant. Our service was good l but the food was really hit or miss. Steaks were good and cooked well. Veggies were fine and potato sides were just ok. Crab cake was awful. Crispy outside with no crab visible. It was mush inside and had little crab in it. Wine selection and oysters were best part of dinner. Would probably try many other places in Cape may before returning.

This is the second time we have been to Oyster Bay and love it! This time we tried he manhattan style clam soup which was excellent! Then we had scallop & shrimp newburg. It was amazing! Jumbo scallops and shrimp in a newburg sauce with the most delicate crust. Mine came with mashed potatoes and string beans, and my husband got the rice and were both very satisfied with our choices. We finished off by sharing a chocolate mouse and that was delicious! Service was excellent as well. Highly recommend!

Food was outstanding and service was excellent! Although it was a bit pricey, the appetizer, entree, and dessert portions were substantial. I loved the fried tomatoes and crabmeat appetizer, and the seafood pot pie was delicious. I can't wait to go back and try some other dishes! We were seated in one of the smaller rooms which made for a quiet and intimate dinner atmosphere.

We were so excited to have dinner at Oyster Bay, we love it there. Everyone is so nice, Jerry, the hostess, Steve, our server. Always a pleasure to see them. We actually had friends that went there for dinner also, We joined them at the bar when we came in and after dinner they came and found us at our table. The food was so good, I had halibut and my husband had grouper. We both enjoyed our dinner immensely. So glad to have the restaurant open for the season again.

It was an early seating on Valentines Day. We were never rushed at all. Food was delicious. I had the braised Short Rib. Serving size was huge. The short ribs were break apart tender without being dried out. Everything was perfect!

The food is excellent, service quick and unobtrusive and prices, given the quality of the food, quite reasonable.

The Bar is lively and yet dining is quiet.

My first time at this charming restaurant, and was so pleased to find that this terrific old restaurant has stood the test of time. Sometimes in our New Jersey shore towns, the restaurant may be an old institution that DOES need some fine tuning. Oyster Bay is keeping up with its reputation.

When I make an Open Table reservation, I expect to be seated within five minutes of arrival. The hostess took me directly to our table while my friend fought for parking (even as early as 5:45pm, the little lot was full), and service was attentive and friendly.

The food was just delicious. I had the spinach and brie salad, and I've been dreaming about it ever since. Love the accompanying foccacia slices. Steak and potatoes were nicely done and very flavorful.

No time for dessert this time, but we'll be back!

Love everything about this restaurant. The chef accommodates my special food allergy and made the most marvelous lamb chops. Prices are reasonable considering this is fine dining. Very good wine list. Ambiance reminds me of metropolitan dining. Oysters are served ice cold on a bed of greens with lemon and cocktail sauce. We go often when We,re in cape may.

My mother and I enjoyed a dinner here at the Oyster Bay Steak and Seafood prior to attending the Jazz Festival concert on the other side of town. We started with the calamari which was fresh and delicious. The sauce was a tad on the spicy side, but still a nice compliment to the meal. My mother had the salmon special with risotto which she loved. I had the coconut shrimp with roasted red bliss potatoes and steamed veggies. The shrimp were good but the coconut coating was a bit oil laden, so when I'd take a bite, oil would ooze from the bite. I was so hungry, I ate them without sending back but had we had more time I would've asked for ones that were not fried so long. Dessert was coffee with chocolate mousse. Delicious and yummy!

A nice evening made up for delicious but meager portions. Cocktails were awesome! Our waiter was nice but very slow which may have been due to understaffing. Reservations at 7. Ordered drinks and entre at the same time and had to rush to arrive at 9 o’clock event a few blocks away. Would have loved to have coffee and dessert which looked wonderful!

My husband and I absolutely love Oyster Bay Restaurant. This is one of our favorite places to go in Cape May. The encrusted grouper is so delicious and offered as a special most of the time. My husband had the rack of lamb this time and enjoyed it very much. The blueberry mojitos are yummy and refreshing. I love mine made with Malibu coconut rum. The service is always terrific and we look forward to seeing Gerry and the staff every time we dine here.

I would highly recommend this place! We had dinner with some friends and everyone was happy with their choices. Both my husband and I had the salmon special of the night and we were very pleased with our choice. It was delicious! Our friends had the filet with crab meat and duck as entrees, and both were very happy with their choices. For dessert we had chocolate mouse which was amazing!! And our friends shared the Creme Brulee and again were very happy with their choice. The waitress was very attentive. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and did not feel rushed. We will happily return again when we are in town.
