Great chowder !!

Enjoyed another lovely day in Camden at the Marina here at Ott's. Nice to watch the boats coming and going while enjoying a good beer and a good bowl of chowder. Waiting staff were very attentive.

My family decided to celebrate my parents 25th anniversary at Peter Otts. We had a wonderful experience. The staff was quick, friendly and knowledgable about what they were serving. Very peppy and fun with our group. The food came out very quickly, was hot and very good. Ingredients tasted fresh, and the portions were perfect. Thank you all for a... More

Gordon Ramsay wouldn't have a bad thing to say about this restaurant. I travel frequently for business, and pleasure, which requires me to spend a lot of time eating out. In those times I've eaten at both bad and good restaurants, more often bad. But, Peter Ott's is hands-down in the top 5 restaurants I've eaten at in the world.... More

My partner and I had dinner here this evening. Loved the waterfront location, and decor. Had hoped for a more memorable meal. We had cocktails before dinner ( 2 for $18) and each had an appetizer. Mine was the roasted beet and goat cheese salad. ( just ok. Felt like canned beets had been cut into cubes and a dollap... More

This has become my favorite place to grab dinner & drinks, whether with my family or with friends. This last time, my girlfriend & I shared seared sea scallops with pico de gallo and a fried calamari & arugula salad. Yum! For my entree I enjoyed the chicken pot pie, which is made from scratch! I highly recommend dining at... More

Everytime my wife and I are passing through on our yearly trip to the coast, Peter Otts is one of our top priorities to make sure we stop at at least twice.. Okay sometimes 3 or 4. Their steaks will always be my go-to. I'm a creature of habit and once having such a taste of perfection, it's hard to... More
