Very good food, Beautiful view

The view of Camden Harbor is beautiful from the seating here. The food is very good and arrives quickly. The service is very good. Our waitress, Kelsey was very good, and knew the menu well. Would recommend.

Growing up in New England long a go, We were looking for some authentic lobster, made traditionally. We were very pleased with Peter Ott's Restaurant, they didn't disappoint us at all. The waiter was exceptional. Thank You. Barbra Gradozzi

On the side oif the harbour gives it an ideal location. We sat inside and the decor is just a little basic. However the food was nice and the server was helpful.

We spent a perfect day in Camden. Our sailboat tour brought us right back to the dock where Peter Ott's restaurant is located. We sat outside with a view of the water and a variety of boats. It was hard to choose our dinner because there is something for everyone on the menu. The seafood was amazing,so fresh.The steaks were... More

We were about to board the Appeldore and needed a quick bite. Peter Otts was right near by. We had a lobster roll and crab roll. Absolutely outstanding! Most we have had have been covered in mayonnaise. These were fresh with only a dollop to hold it together. YUM!

We were on the dock on an errand and wanted to take a break and have a drink. Sat outside on the water and decided to have something to eat. I had the lobster roll with fries and my husband (who has celiac disease) had a glass of wine with a dozen oysters. Everything was great. I haven't had a... More

We were looking for lunch near the public landing because my elderly mother couldn't negotiate a long distance and we were heading out on a boat. Peter Ott's was right there and it turned out to be delightful! The staff was wonderful to my mother, the food was fresh and very tasty, and the atmosphere, right on the water, was... More

Well prepared dinner, in a beautiful location. Smaller than expected outdoor area, so if you want to be seated outside, you may have to wait. Also, outdoor dining isn't private - there is a pedestrian path between the dining area and the harbor.

This place overlooks the water but it's best to be aware that there aren't many tables where you would get a view and inside is rather dark. The menu covers just about anything you could want, so suits diners with differing tastes. However the garnish is uninspiring (roasted garlic with everything) and there were no daily specials. If you wanted... More
