This is a meal I won't forget . Stunning views, great service, wonderful food . A superb and unique dessert menu . Not your usual mundane choices of Lava Cake and NY Cheesecake. Can't wait to head back this Spring !!!!

We are locals and have eaten at both the old and new Peter Ott's. As a vegetarian, I preferred the old place's menu and food; my carnivorous wife has had good and bad meals at the new place on the water. We do both like the beet and goat cheese salad, which is tasty and big enough to split in... More

My scallops were tough and dry. My husband had roasted Garlic on his plate that had no oil so it was completely dried up, could not get any out, may as well been a sprig of parsley. Service was good, but what came out of the kitchen was poor.

I don't know the official chef's flavor analysis of this combination, but I had two items that perfectly complemented each other. I started with the pickled beets salad, which comes with goat cheese over arugula. That perked up my taste buds for PO's lobster corn chowder. I dined early in the dinner service, so the freshly made chowder wasn't as... More

Had a great pint of Pumpkin Ale and a bowl of Lobster Corn Chowder while sitting in a little patch of sun that was getting through because of the angle of the building. I always feel that when the sun is out I need to be sitting outside enjoying it - especially with a beer in my hand. Service was... More

The location is great. You sit over looking the marina and the room itself has a fireplace and beautiful exposed beams. The staff were friendly and attentive. I had the 8 ounce filled with sautéed carrots and esparagus along with a giant wedge salad. The bread was very good too.

Our expectations weren't very high... but we were surprised by the food quality. I especially enjoyed the lobster corn chowder. Maybe the best I've ever had. And in season, there's a large harborside porch that offers terrific harbor views.

The waitress wasn't very attentive or helpful. We heard her offer the specials to another table and would have chosen from those if she'd offered, but I guess we didn't look like good tippers. However, service aside, the food was terrific! I had the surf & turf (steak & lobster tail) and had to refrain from licking the plate. The... More

We live in the Seattle area and are used to crab cakes but have never had them like this. They were delicious! This was a beautiful spot with a very attentive staff despite a big crowd. We cannot speak highly enough of our experience.
