The best lunch I had on my Maine trip I had here--tomato soup and mussels. The soup was considered a "cup," but was more like a bowl. Very fresh and flavorful, although I would have liked a bit more basil. The mussels were from the...More

A great location on the harbor. The crab cakes and the crab rolls were delicious. The peaceful setting made everything taste great. Service was excellent.

We stopped here for dinner on a Tues. night. The location and view are great. It was quite loud. We each had pasta & lobster entrees. Both were really good. The waitress was a bit inexperienced. Would dine here again.

The portion for lunch were more then adequate, the seating was great within the harbor itself and the waitstaff was friendly and efficient

The ambience was bland, the food was not well cooked and with small portions. I was quite unimpressed after all the recommendations and good reviews. They need a new chef, redo of interior design and waiters that are polite! Don't waste your money.

The fresh seafood, the excellent service, and the view made for a wonderful dining experience. I would eat here every night if possible.

Being a Tuesday we were surprised how many people were there to eat dinner (and so was the staff) but the quality of the filet mignon was unsurpassable. The best we have ever had. Our server Kelsey did a remarquable job that night serving everyone...More

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.
