This is the third time I have tried Peter Ott's since it moved to the wharfside location. I go mainly for the pickled beets salad, which used to be my favorite part of their (now gone) salad bar. The entire salad bar used to be $6.50 with a meal, now it's $8 or $9 for beets with a small ball... More

I work right next door to Peter Ott's on the Water and order from them weekly. I honestly have NEVER had a bad meal here and that says a lot. Considering I work the nightly shift here at my place of work, I don't get homemade meals but when I go next door, I do. I've had the traditional burger... More

The pros: This is a upscale restaurant in a nice location on the Camden waterfront. The ambiance is warm, modern and comfortable. Service was great. Food was good. The cons: Over priced for extremely small portions. I live in the NY metro area and, believe me, I am used to high priced restaurants. The difference here was that this was... More

Hadn't been to Camden for a while so it was nice to find this location on the water. I'm sure the view is nice but we were there for dinner so it was dark. Really liked the selections on the menu. It seemed a little overpriced but it is seafood on the ocean so I'm used to that. Our server... More

We stopped by at this lively, bustling pub for lunch or drinks three times in two days, the last weekend of September. The place seemed to be busy at all times of day. Service was snappy, food and drink were good - round about medium-priced - and the on-the-water location is second to none in Camden. It happened to be... More

Extremely friendly service...and the food (shell fish) was superb!! For just a few dollars more they serve the delicious lobster without the shell (and mess). Very attractive seating and attractive atmosphere. Right on the bay with views of the water.

Visited Camden on route to Barharbor would definitely recommend their lobster and corn chowder and the glass of Pinot Grigio was just as delicious. To be honest it was the stunning October weather the views and the food that made this a place well worth a visit.

To begin with, the prices are too high. There were 4 couples dining. We were seated near the fireplace and we were way too hot. Service was slow....I don't mind this when I am with friends but I want to set the pace....not have slow service because they are slow. Drinks are $12 which is ridiculous. My $9 glass of... More
