In my opinion what makes an excellent restaurant is well-prepared and tasty food; an attractive and comfortable atmosphere; friendly and eficient service; and value for money spent. Oyster Bay has all of those, and for my wife and me, it is one of the better restaurants in Cape May. We visit several times a year, and after each visit we say that we should remember to go there more often.

The couple that own the restaurant are very hands-on which no doubt accounts for the consistent quality. The wife greets diners as they arrive and leads them to their table. The husband is the executive chef. They care and it is obvious.

There restaurant consists of three moderately-sized rooms, so there is no barn-like atmosphere and the noise level does not become annoying. There is a club-like bar that is separated from the dining rooms. The focus of the bar is a wide selection of martinis but drinks of all kinds are available, including a nice selection of wines, some available by the glass, and craft beers.

The menu could be described as contemporary American: Angus beef, veal, seafood, duck, chicken, some pastas. All good. Recently I have had sliced rare duck breast, London Broil (flank steak) with a red wine sauce, shrimp and scallops, grouper, veal medallions...all very good.

The prices are quite fair; with the exception of lobster tail, and filet of beef with crabmeat, the entrees are priced in the twenties. The restaurant is a very good value and we will return.

The Appetizers were small meals in themselves.
Timing between servings was spot on.
The main courses we had were excellent and cooked to our liking.
The service was very good and the waitress was charming.
All this was topped off with a comfortable environment and we had a window view.
When you go there to eat, go hungry as we found out the portions were generous.
A walk on the mall afterwards made for a perfect 37th wedding anniversary.
Visit Oyster Bay Steak and Seafood Restaurant. I promise you, you won't be disappointed.

We have dined at Oyster Bay, in Cape May, NJ multiple times and can truly say, we have NEVER been disappointed. Their Filet Mignon and seafood dish is "Most Excellent." It is conveniently located in the heart of the city and easy walking distance from the historic area. Their staff is always professional and their service is well above average. We always leave quite satisfied!

My meal was enjoyable-the decor is classic, the martinis are priced fair with a solid pour, the entrees are well done overall. I was severely disappointed that the place is called "Oyster" Bay and Oysters were not available. This is the second time this has happened. I think a name change is in order.
