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.

The lobster cake appetizer is fabulous! It is served over an arugula and tomato salad with lemon aloli. I had it as my meal and it was perfect! Dessert was also fabulous, espresso creme brûlée! I can't wait to go back

Half a block from our hotel and right on the water. Outdoor dining option lets you watch the schooners come and go on this beautiful bay. Food above average but not outstanding. Still, for the price and location, a solid choice.

Peter Ott's is situated directly under the Grand Harbor Inn and directly on the water. The food was excellent, but the service was a little lacking. I had the fried haddock and my wife had blackened chicken fettuccine. Both dishes were very good.

Nice location. Good service at the beginning. Ordered baked haddock and came out dry. Hubby had Lobster Alfredo. Said it wasn't that great. I definitely wouldn't go back. Food was overpriced.
