Sitting outside overlooking the harbor at Peter Ott's is a wonderful experience. My wife and I split a bowl of the lobster chowder which was excellent and the highlight of the meal. It was well seasoned with big chunks of lobster. We shared the crew cakes which were also good, but nothing exceptional. Our server was both friendly and attentive.... More

Very friendly staff, solid lobster roll. Nice views from inside and outside. A very solid choice on the waterfront.

Amazing terrace location overlooking the harbour, inside its vast and dark and not quaint. The menu is the same as any other large waterfront eateries. The food is unexciting and slightly more expensive than one would hope for. The cheesecake was simply not good. The bottled beer should have been opened at the table not somewhere else! The staff was... More

First night in Maine and wanted a traditional lobster dinner. Cup of chowder to start than a 1 1/2 lb. lobster with corn on the cob. Restaurant caters to tourists but food was great and service also. Great harbor view also.

Food was good, I had chicken quesadillas which had ample chicken, so much I only ate ½ the quesadilla. My husband had a burger made exactly as described and cooked to his liking. Lots of people on the harbor front, many stopping right in front of you and blocking your view. Service was very good. Fairly priced for the area.

It's a great place to eat on the water however the service was not very good. Once we were seated we were asked what we'd like to drink, we put in our drink order and waited ten minutes or more for our drinks which we had to get the waitress's attention and ask for our drinks. She did apologize. The... More

Nice place to enjoy a meal. Somewhat limited menu but what we got was great. The mussels were fabulous and the calamari salad was delicious. Great views & location!
