On a busy Sunday summer lunchtime afternoon we were finally seated and served by a bubbly server named Amanda. We sat outside overlooking the beautiful Camden harbor. We all ordered lamb burgers on a Ciabatta roll with sweet potato fries and a pickle. The portions were large and the food delicious. Amanda gave us excellent service with a great personality... More

Had to wait for seating because of parties and big groups. Small bar but bartender was excellent and gave great service until we were seated. Food was very good and service very good. Better atmosphere than the old location.

I went to lunch with a friend as we were in the area and wanted to eat at a place where we could enjoy the beautiful weather. Peter Ott’s was the place to go. We must have timed eating lunch at the right time as we did not have to wait for an outdoor seat to open up. The atmosphere... More

Our company was visiting Maine on business, and I and three of my associates had dinner at Peter Ott's. We didn't have a reservation, but they were very accommodating. Our waitress Kelsey was very helpful and courteous, and while we only planned on staying for drinks, we ended up staying for dinner. What a great decision. Our appetizers were excellent,... More

The view from our table was great but service was slow. The food is basic and the prices are high. Go here for drinks and get dinner somewhere else.

I was exploring the middle coast of Maine on a solo day trip and Peter Ott's was filled with diners and it was right on the harbor pier. Hostess was terrific and didn't blink when I asked for a table for one. Clam chowder was very good and the calamari and arugula salad was fresh and crispy. The pairing was... More

My husband and I sat at the bar for a drink and quick lunch. The lobster corn chowder was delicious, caprese salad was ok. Bartender was busy preparing drinks for the rest of the restaurant, and talking to other guests so the service wasn't the best.

Crab cakes were over salted, and that seemed to be the only flavor. Very small and poor value for $14. Ive never had a spinach salad before where the greens were cooked. A salad is raw. The bacon vinaigrette is warm. Ive had this dish is probably 10 different restaurants and I've never seen it served this way. It was... More

We had dinner at Peter Ott’s waiting about 20 minutes so that we could eat on the waterfront patio. We had read the reviews of the poor service but this restaurant was convenient to our hotel and we wanted dinner on the waterfront. We were surprised how good our service was. Our waitress, Rachel, had also read the recent poor... More
