We decided on a light dinner, so we had the lobster-corn chowder, Caesar salad and mussels. All were quite good. Large windows overlook the harbor and the interior is pleasantly decorated. Service is pleasant and efficient.

We had lunch at Peter's and the food was great, service was also very good, and the view there is incredible.

I held my son's rehearsal dinner for 111 people here and the food, drinks, service was impeccable. Peter and his staff are a complete joy to work with and all my friends and family returned day after day for more of his delicious food. The views are fantastic and being right on the water is such a treat. Cannot wait... More

Bartender was very capable and made a delicious cosmo. I had the surf and turf which was good but not as good as the lobster corn chowder I started out with. Husband had sirloin steak which was excellent.

Bartender knows his brew and will make a great recommendation if you tell him what you like. Food looked good, but we only had dessert, which was a nicely done blueberry crumb - a la mode, of course!

Had dinner out on the pier over the weekend and loved this place. Our friends had a dog and thankfully they let you bring them with you to the outdoor eating area. Service was super friendly, but it did take quite a while to get our food and they weren't very busy at all. It took a little over 2... More

Wasn't expecting much here based on the other reviews and the waterfront location. Most of the meal was average as expected. The one highlight though was the chowder. It was the best we had of our whole trip! Wish we could have went back there again.

Had a quick lunch in their Harbour front covered patio. Food- oysters, lobster and crab rolls, beer and a half bottle of Prosecco was served quickly by one of the (very pretty) young waitresses, and was perfectly satisfactory although on the expensive side of the scale. The real justification for eating here is Harbour gazing and people watching. Camden surprisingly... More

All in all it's "average". Menu is mostly steak, burger and seafood, so difficult to get it too wrong! Food was OK, although one of the meals arrived quite cold. Service was fine, neither poor nor great. Location of Peter Ott's is nice. You can sit on the water if you want. NB: they moved a couple of years back... More

We arrived by boat and found a place to park on the town dock for an early dinner. Even though it was crowded at the height of summer, we were seated right away inside. We opted for salads and seafood as well as a few beverages. There service wasn't great coming out of the kitchen, but the drinks arrived and... More
