    Solid seafood meal at Peter's. We usually eat in the casual, self-serve side of the restaurant and hadn't been at the full-serve restaurant in years. Three in the group ate broiled fish, one ate flounder oreganato. Two had soup, two shared fried calamari. Food was very good. Key lime pie for dessert was just okay.

    I thought this place would have great fresh seafood but I was so wrong! Only thing that was good was the lobster bisque. We ordered calamari for the table and it tasted stale. I ordered the surf and turf , I asked for a medium steak and my steak was burnt. None of us enjoyed our food and it was very disappointing.

    Peter's is a great restaurant but I'm concerned how much they have raised prices. The least expensive bottle of wine is $50 and it's not exactly a high end bottle. They also add a 4% upcharge if you use a credit card which is understandable but makes the prices even higher. The service is excellent though and I've never had a bad dish. I just likely won't go as often which is disappointing.

    Soft shell crab was dry and bland. . Also can’t believe you charged $7.00 for a piece of cake with a candle after a $600 bill including tip. Really???? Our server, however, I wish I knew his name, was excellent. Pleasant considerate and professional!

    “Mothers Day” and the food was HORRIBLE. This was my second visit and unsure if the kitchen was just not prepared for the traffic. I felt rushed, just HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED!!

    We ate outside and although it's technically Spring, heat lamps would have been nice. We had planned to stay longer but the cold made it unbearable. Otherwise, I recommend and will be back (when it's warmer).

    We sat outside and the weather was great, A little chilly but for April, it was great. The server was excellent and the food was awesome. Keep in mind, this is not fine dining, it's more family and local friendly and if I had to rate it based solely on that, it would be 5 stars all around. We will definitely be back many times..

    Haven't been there in years! Had friends from the city come visit and thought we'd give it a try; the food was excellent, from the 2 types of raw clams, octopus salad, seafood salad, steamers, etc! The service was not great, our waitress was split between outside and inside, where we dined and very little attention; certainly service not in line with their pricing.

    The waitress was awful. She took forever to get our drinks. She acted like she did not want to be there. The clam chowder tasted like it came out of a can. And the lobster meat tasted like it was frozen. IT WAS ABSOLUTELY ONE OF THE WORST MEALS I HAVE EVER HAD. This restaurant should not be in business.

    Haven't been to Peter's Clam Bar in ages and the food was as phenomenal as I remembered it! Our seafood extravaganza consisted of fried calamari, a dozen oysters, bacon wrapped scallops, fresh lobster, clams, mussels with rice, corn, a side of asparagus, and the chef's choice dessert which was a cheesecake slice with cool whip and raspberry sauce were all delicious! The staff was super friendly and caring too. The environment took COVID precautions seriously and placed everyone within a reasonable distance. The ambiance was quiet and it wasn't packed.

    Awful service been there a million times the place was barely even busy our waitress barely came over to us we had to keep calling her over to ask for things. The water tasted like toilet water. No clue what is going on there but something needs to be fixed... and get a filtered water system!
