The steak melts in your mouth. Most of the people in our party got the steak and loved it. The other dishes were also very good. We also enjoyed the salad bar. It was well stocked and fresh.

Decent food, decently served but not special. Service during our winter visit was stretched thin. Nice kids, working hard but not enough of them. The food was decently prepared. Not imaginative or stylish, but decent. Passes the time, meets the need. Clean and ready to serve.

Went during a recent snowstorm so the place was pretty empty. Everything was wonderful. Our waitress was attentive and the food was great. The food can seem a little pricey, but there are lower cost options also. We would definitely go back.

My husband and I stopped in to Ott's for a drink on New Year's Eve. They were terribly understaffed- or at least it appeared so. There were several seats at the bar- the service was just horrific and the one bartender was clearly frustrated. Perhaps this is not a good evening to review a restaurant- however, they should have been... More

The chef at Peter Ott's is top drawer. The food is absolutely delicious. Had the bacon wrapped scallops which were succulent, followed by surf & turf and crap topped haddock. Both meals were fantastic and the service was fine. The only negative is the tired appearance of the place. It could use some updating inside, but other than that it's... More

This is a beautiful venue in the heart of Camden. My wife and I ate here our last night of vacation. We arrived about 6 P.M. and everything went well. Drinks arrived promptly and our dinners shortly thereafter - 1 1/2 pound lobster for my wife and haddock cakes for me. The food was very good. As we enjoyed our... More

Long time location nice chef and good food. But not impressed at all last night. Blue cheese dressing with no flavor but a lot of unknown lumps. Fresh salad bar though. Bacon wrapped scallops shouldn't have been served ! Way over cooked and bacon was hard. Only bacon flavor. Service was great and remembered us from 8 months ago. But... More

One of my favorite places when I visit Camden. Peter Otts makes great steak and serves excellent cocktails. This place is terrific and you will never be disappointed. I pass through Camden about once a year and always make sure I get at least one meal here. You will enjoy it. The salad bar is also great if you like... More
