We had a nice lunch here. Quiet and unhurried. Fried clams and mussels. We sat outside on a cool day. With light outerwear it was very pleasant.

Experienced a unique vegetable option here, a cross between broccoli and cauliflower. The bread was great and the steak served with the surf and turf was excellent. Had never had lobster cakes before, found them very tasty with chunks of lobster in them.

Reserve an outside table for dinner. They don't serve between hour outside service. They stop serving around 2:30 and start again around 5 during summer hours. So, if your heart is set on dining outside, check. As in all places in Maine - great lobster!

After sailing, we stopped by...food is great! We ordered the Lobster Linguini, children’s steak, 8 oz steak, and clam chowder. We loved the clam chowder, it was excellent! The linguini was excellent too.

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.
