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

We chose Peter Ott's since we wanted to lunch outdoors on a lovely September afternoon. Also, it was dog friendly and our rescued chocolate lab was very welcome. We enjoyed the quite strong, tasty cocktails and our light lunch. Our server Judy was very pleasant and efficient and we enjoyed chatting about her future trip to Key West. This location... More

We stopped in Camden on our way to Bar Harbor. I quickly looked up some lunch spots and this one looked good. It was a little windy, but we sat outside and had a nice view of the water and boats moving in and out. The menu was appealing and we ordered the hummus plate, the lobster corn chowder, and... More
