Had a delightful dinner for 2 by the fireplace. The food was excellent! Too many tempting choices to pick from! definitely deserves several visits. Staff was attentive yet not rushing you. Prices were competitive but worth it for the experience.Loved it!

I visited several places in Maine and this is the best restaurant I found. The service is excellent, everyone is so friendly and the food is very, very good. The location is also perfect, such a lovely terrace. I can only recommend it.

We were here for our anniversary, and we made a good selection. We always enjoy a restaurant with a view, and they had a nice view, particularly if you eat outside. Was very good seafood. I had the haddock with crab.

Visited with two very good friends who are local to the area, had an outstanding Lobster main and superb chowder to star with. Attentive and friendly staff complete the experience, well done to the owner and team.

Pleasant surroundings and service. Very fresh oysters and lobster. Large portions and side dishes so you might want to share. Good variety for those who don't want to go the chowder/seafood route although those items were the highlights of our visit.

Great view of the harbor with patio dining. The Lobster BLT, at the suggestion of the server, was amazing!

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.
