If you want a great view of the harbor and some good food, this is the spot. The dining area has a lot of glass so you can watch the waterfront activity. We had the fried clams and the haddock sandwich for lunch. Both were good and filling. Good selection of beers as well.

Family of four ate dinner here. Nice view of harbor. Our food was good, but we weren't overly impressed. I had fish, husband had surf and turf, and girls had pasta, and we also had crab cakes appetizer. Service was fine. Everything was good, just not outstanding.

Location is the number 1 reason I chose this restaurant and probably the number 1 reason I would return! I think I ordered wrong- the tacos were ok- maybe too many flavors being mixed- big portion Should have stuck with the Chowder and a salad or something. Patio has an incredible view of the harbor- inside is comfortable and at... More

I have been visiting Camden for many years and have always had good dining experiences at Peter Ott's prior to their relocation. This year I found that they had relocated to a new space which was closer to the water with a lovely view. So far so good. My dining companion and I had dinner there twice. Both meals were... More

A rainy and foggy evening created the perfect atmosphere for dining at this restaurant on the edge of Camden's harbor. If a Hollywood set designer were tasked to come up with a romantic Maine eatery, this what he would be the result. A glass of Malbec and an outstandingly authentic clam chowder proved to be the perfect choice for dinner.... More

Lovely setting. We got there at 4:30pm, place was empty. They wouldn't let us sit at a table until 5:00pm. Told us we could only sit at the bar. Okay, ordered pricey wine and listened to the servers gripe and complain about working there. Bet the owners weren't around that day.

Had dinner here during our wedding anniversary trip. The service and food was really nice and everyone on the staff was friendly. We wanted a romantic night and this provided that, especially on the waterfront like it is. Great place. !

We visited Camden and I checked trip advisor for a suggestion on a restaurant. We chose Peter Ott's. The staff was great. Service was excellent. The view of the harbor was relaxing. And the food was outstanding. We had corn and lobster chowder. It was creamy and filled with lobster and corn. With the soup my husband had caesar salad.... More

We were on our way to Bangor, ME and the server found out that we were from out of state so she didn't put ANY effort into our service other than taking our order. She never asked if our food was okay, she spent 5-10 minutes talking to her other tables but ignored us completely. We even asked at the... More
