We had a rehearsal dinner here and it was very nice. Great food. We had 20 people and were served in excellent time. Great waitresses.

We are staying close by so have eaten here several times. Wonderful views from the inside. Great local oysters! Fantastic martinis! Good lobster soup, lobster cakes and crab cakes. Saw lots of people eating hamburgers - in case someone does not want seafood. Waitresses helpful and friendly. Not fancy so no need to dress up.

We stopped in for a drink and appetizer ... While watching the waterfront activity. It's an active, intimate harbor and lots to watch. The food was good, the service clearly wanted to please, and we had a lovely time.

It was raining and we ducked in to have lunch and had the lobster roll, which was generous, and came with fries for the same price as the other rolls at take out places.

Peter Ott's exceeded expectations and was worth the visit just for the best chowder I had in a week in Maine (with chowder every day). My wife and I were there for lunch and (after a big breakfast) not terribly hungry, but we are chowder hounds, so we both ordered a bowl and split a fish taco entree. I had... More

Our innkeeper had suggested this spot and it was. A good choice. We went without reservations on a Wednesday night and got right in. It's down at the harbor so there is a lot to see. Food was very good, lobster and corn chowder had a ton of lobster in it and the lobster fettuccine Alfredo was the same way.... More

We happened upon this place while looking for an outdoor place to have a drink and watch the boats -- then stayed for dinner, going inside after the temperature dropped. Crab cakes and salad hit the spot -- and why not -- we had dessert. Didn't want to leave!

Our group stopped in at Peter Ott's based on a suggestion from the hotel we were at. We could not have been happier. Wonderful food, some of us believe we received over 1/2 pound of lobster in our Lobster corn chowder, it was very filling! The wait staff was very attentive and friendly. If you are visiting Camden, this is... More
