Great location and even better food

A nice relaxing meal in a great location and wait staff who knew exactly what they were doing and some good food and beer suggestions.

Visited Peter Ott's for lunch in August. No tables outside so we ate inside. The food was good but the service was slow. The location is great even if Camden is "touristy." We were not able to return for dinner.

This restaurant has been in Camden for some time, but relocated to this waterfront spot a little over a year ago. It has reinvented itself as a prime venue for dining with a great view, and excellent food. We were there for dinner the night before they were closing for a winter break, and the food was as delicious and... More

The entree I had here was one of the best have ever had! I ordered a tilapia with lobster sauce and was so good! The scallop appetizer was also very good. I ordered a Bellini and was also fantastic. Each dish was bursting with flavor and service and presentation could not be beat. I would go back here again.

Venue is great, on the water in beautiful Camden. We were greeted by a welcoming hostess and seated immediately. Our server arrived shortly thereafter and, like the hostess, was very engaging and knowledgeable. The two fireplaces were a welcome addition on a rainy November evening. Casual and very enjoyable environment. The parking lot is small and very congested so plan... More

Had a very nice dinner. The lobster and corn chowder is really good. The service was attentive and the view was great and it was a chilly night so the fireplace made it very cozy.

The crab cake and beet salad appetizers that we had were wonderful. We both had seafood meals that were excellent. It is a beautiful space right on the water. Service was friendly and attentive. We'd gladly go back next time we are in Camden!

This was my first visit to Peter Ott's new location. I had been warned about the greeting and it made a difference. The greeter border on being rude. There wasn't a crush of customers and my companion and me were in no real rush and there was no reason for the curtness she displayed starting with "Just two"? where we... More

Decent menu choices, nice presentation, good food, but it was the gingerbread that knocked this meal out of the park. We arrived between 5 and 5:30 one afternoon and managed to snag a nice table ( for six) with a great view. The staff was pleasant. The food was a notch above good and the pricing matched. Overall a pleasant... More

We live locally and it took us almost ten years to get to this restaurant! Glad we made the effort. Great new space affords a great atmosphere and right on the water. We unfortunately couldn't get a table outside, but enjoyed the inside space. The fish that I had was delicious, perfectly cooked, and my husband's lobster linguini was excellent.... More
