Long time location nice chef and good food. But not impressed at all last night. Blue cheese dressing with no flavor but a lot of unknown lumps. Fresh salad bar though. Bacon wrapped scallops shouldn't have been served ! Way over cooked and bacon was hard. Only bacon flavor.
Service was great and remembered us from 8 months ago. But we won't return again.

We go to Peter Ott's EVERY time we are in Camden! The service and food are some of the best we have ever had! The steaks are perfection. The salad bar is fresh and delicious! We love the homemade dressings! The prices are very fair!

Last time we were there, we stayed for about 2 hours for an amazing meal and dessert! We never felt rushed, and really loved the slower pace, as we were celebrating our anniversary.

We will be back EVERY time we are in Camden! We can't get enough!

One of my favorite places when I visit Camden. Peter Otts makes great steak and serves excellent cocktails. This place is terrific and you will never be disappointed. I pass through Camden about once a year and always make sure I get at least one meal here. You will enjoy it. The salad bar is also great if you like that type of thing.

After hearing for years how wonderful this restaurant was we were looking forward to eating there. Well I can now say I'll never go back. I like my steak medium, 1st they gave me shoeleather, then rare, then back to shoeleather. I thought steak was one of the items they are supposed to be good at.

We went to dinner here while in Camden,we were told it was a good restaurant and it was.but what I liked, was the friendly atmosphere, greeted with a smile by the hostess and waitress,seated by the fire, and ready for some good food,well we soon looking over the menu`s and trying to decide,all looked good,but I chose a roast pork tenderloin in apple cider reduction and also the salad bar oh did I say the mashed potatoes were with horseradish? different and delicious,the salad bar was very good,pickled beets that were so awesome,I could have eaten them forever! My meal was delicious,cleaned my plate,my friend had the salmon and baked potato,she said it was the best salmon ever,she also cleaned her plate,in a town with many restaurants,Peter Oots not to be missed, and by the way,I had left my glasses back at hotel,the waitress noted my peering at the menu squinting, and asked if I needed some help,upon hearing about my glasses brought out a basket of forgotten glasses and I found a strength that worked,voila! it was those touches that made our dinner special,personal attention,want you to note it was not overlooked but so appreciated,as with the help at salad bar,thank you Peter Oots for a well trained staff and excellent food
