On a recent visit to Camden we visited Peter Otts for a late dinner at our hotels recommendation and were not disappointed. Although the menu is not extensive they are able to offer a little of everything and do it well. The chef is the owner and obviously cares about quality as both of our meals were done to perfection and very reasonably priced. If there is anything negative at all I would say it could use some sprucing up to improve the atmosphere but otherwise Kudos to the chef.

Well where do I start. My wife and I are from Chicago and spoiled. We came to Otts on recommendations of this website. The bread comes first with a smidgen of butter. Is there a butter shortage in Camden? I ordered the chicken pot pie and needless to say the chicken is all leg meat,no breast. Costco sells a better pot pie,try is,that's chicken pot pie. My wife had crab cakes,they were all right,5 out of ten. Camden needs some good chefs not cooks. This is a seafood town,cant anyone produce some great seafood menus?

8oz filet mignon was gorgeous. the staff were friendly and there was a nice buzz in the place. we chose Ott's based on tripadvisor reviews and weren't disappointed. fresh, warm bread and lovely NY Riesling. not the cheapest but good value.

Great place to have a drink then share a meal perfectly prepared to your preferences. Set in a wonderful town to take a walk following your meals.

Peter Otts is one of the few places that I frequently visit in Camden. The food always exceeds any expectation, surely to delight with hand cut steaks, fresh and LOCAL produce from the salad bar, as well as the local seafood! I love that the owner cares enough about his community to help by trying to stay as local as possible when other restaurants have turned to buying cheap, and less than par, produce, meats, and seafood, then try to pass it off as local, or the "freshly frozen." For those of us locals... We notice the difference! The atmosphere is always comfortable, wait staff is more than friendly and knowledgable, and the prices, well, as my dad would say, "you pay for what you get." As far as I'm concerned, the price for the food is very fair. I have never had a bad meal, and had the opportunity to try some very interesting and unique specials! With the owner himself on the line EVERY night, he is more than willing to make adjustments to taste or if you have an allergy or preferences towards vegan or not. He aims to please! Two thumbs up from this girl, along with a good word for anyone looking for a great place to eat!
