We took a leisurely stroll from our B&B to the restaurant. The menu had a nice selection of dishes. I thoroughly enjoyed the Tuna Tartare appetizer and Seared Scallops entree. My husband and I enjoyed the Chocolate Lava Cake for dessert. They have a pianist providing nice background music throughout the meal. I liked that it was BYO so we could bring the wine we like.

We went for our anniversary. We were looking for a restaurant for a special dinner. The restaurant was perfect. We seated on the enclosed side porch with a wonderful view of the ocean. The server was knowledgeable and attentive. Our food was excellent. We had an excellent experience.

We dine here about 2 times per month through the summer and expect to continue through the balance of the year. The staff is professional and unpretentious. The food is consistently tasty with the kitchen clearly using fresh and natural ingredients. Of all the wonderful things on the menu, don't forget the chicken, it is delicious. Most seats provide some view of the ocean which is stunning. The interior is well appointed and on weekends the piano music is an added touch. Appetizers and entrees are in the 15 and 30 dollar ranges, respectively. This establishment is a BYOB, so you can avoid spending a lot of money on drinks. They are associate with a local Cape May winery and you can purchase those wines if you don't bring any of your own.

Expensive but worth every penny. The service is excellent, the atmosphere lovely, and the food extraordinary. I had the tuna tartare with avocado & mango appetizer and my husband had the foie gras. Both were wonderful. For our entrees, we chose the local day boat scallops and the grilled pork chop. Cleaned our plates. Desserts were equally good (warm date pudding and chocolate lava cake). Bringing your own wine makes eating at PSI more affordable than other fine dining restaurants in the area. We look forward to returning here whenever we're in Cape May.

Great restaurant across the street from the beach. Very convenient location. Excellent food and service. BYOB, but they happily provided us with ice, olives, etc.
