This restaurant is all about the location, right on the harbor, although the food was fine. Good lobster, good mussels, good service, dining room that is good for conversation. An appropriate place to take the kids. Light, airy, lots of windows, outside dining available. I...More

5 of us can't praise the lobster corn chowder enough. Very large bowls stuffed with lobster, corn and potatoes in a delicious creamy stew. The 13 year old took 1/2 of it home for lunch the next day. The sweet potato fries were excellent and...More

Every summer we spend a week in Camden and we drop into Peter Ott's. We went twice--once for after dinner drinks and once for dinner. We were a large (30+) party. Salads (beet/goat cheese, caesar, wedge) are made with fresh ingredients. Good wine list. Nice...More

I enjoyed dining here all by myself and had a wonderful spot right next to the fireplace, and yet a gorgeous view of the harbor at dusk. The food was delicious and my server was a doll! I can't wait to eat there again on...More

We were staying nearby with our dog and needed an in-room dining option. We called Peter Ott's and they were happy to help. The lobster corn chowder was phenomenal, and the arugula salad with calamari excellent too. Perfect!

We sat outside next to a large sailboat. The oysters were out of this world, sweet and fresh. The chowder was the best we had on our Maine Adventure. A romantic evening with my wife.

Do you take reservations? If not, we are on The Owl for the sunset cruise. Would there be enough time after docking at 8pm for dinner? Thanks for the help

Planning dinner at 8:00 or shortly thereafter will work for Peter Ott's. We were there late in the evening, and our meal was not rushed at all. Not sure if the restaurant takes reservations.
Do you have room for a group of 23?
