We love coming to Camden and yet hadnt been to Peter Otts despite all of our visits! The ambience is nice, with halfwall dividers between some tables for more privacy. Its got high ceilings and brick walls with local artists' paintings and appropriate soft music playing in the PA system, tealights on the varnished wood tables. A mini loaf loaf of warm, locally made bread is provided to your table, with cutting board, serrated knife and soft, whipped butter. This is one of the few places in town where you can get Stella Artois beer ($4 on tap), which my hubby loves and which we couldnt find here for our past three days!
I ordered the PO Mai Tai, which was pricey at $10 and skimpy, but delicious even though though there was no cherry garnish. humpf! We shared a side ceasar salad for $6. It was a basic ceasar, but nice and not overly dressed.
Hands down it is THE place to go for steak and fresh seafood. We love that they list their local food source vendors on the back of the menu. My hubby had the 10 oz sliced sirloin wiith dijonaise sauce ($26?) which was heavenly. Sooooo much better quality steak and skilled prep than the steak au poivre he suffered through the night before at The Whales Tooth in Lincolnville ( be sure to read my review of that place! Ugh.) .
I ordered the broiled haddock with fresh picked lobster meat on top -- two nice pieces of lobster, including a whole claw, and a lovely lobster sauce. The fish was cooked perfectly, and the lobster meat succulent. I rarely clean my plate, and I ate every. Single. Bite. ;)
The side veggie that night was corn with green beans, both the corn kernels and beans were sauteed and yummy. We loved it! A nice change from potatoes! Our server was pleasant enough, but she had no real warmth nor interest in us or our meals. Our bill came to $72 plus we left a $14 gratuity , so $86. It is pricey, but it was delicious. There are less expensive entree options to choose from, so dont let the price put you off.
We will definitely go back next time we are vacationng here!
