Our favorite spot for dinner in Camden - always eat outside for the ambiance - the people watching, the seals in the water, the boats coming and going. We have tried the scallops, the steaks, the burgers - all very good. The service is good...More

I’ve been here twice while visiting family. The location is great. Mushroom risotto was delicious, as was the lobster Alfredo. Nice atmosphere with fireplaces near the water.

Went here for dinner while staying in Camden. We had the pasta Alfredo and the clam chowder. Both were decent but nothing out of the ordinary. Service was nice and friendly. Would go somewhere else next time we’re in Camden.

Very nice fine dining on the water. Best for couples and a romantic evening. I was alone, so preferred the bar seating where I could chat with locals and bartenders.

Get the lobster linguine. Light, delicious, fresh, not too much butter. So good. On the waterfront, nice servers. Husband got the chicken pot pie, had cranberries on top which just made it all the better.

Lobster corn chowder is just ok, nothing memorable. The lobster roll should taken cues from Red’s Eat in Wiscasset. View nice, service ok, but first time visit, just ok.

Planning dinner at 8:00 or shortly thereafter will work for Peter Ott's. We were there late in the evening, and our meal was not rushed at all. Not sure if the restaurant takes reservations.
