Have been quite a few times and had great service and great beer every time. The food is hit or miss as we've had bad experiences with some menu items and great experiences with others, stick to burgers and other pub foods and you'll love what you get. Overall, the prices are great and I would definitely recommend for beer... More

Great service and friendly staff, you will not be sorry you went. If you are looking for a place to celebrate an anniversary or birthday this is the place to go.

I've had beer, wine, food and appetizers at Otto's, and I've never been disappointed! Their menu is not extensive when it comes to food, but I've never gotten anything that I've been disappointed with. I'm usually not much of a beer connoisseur, but I've actually tried quite a few of their beers and have liked most of them.

Food is okay at Best. The pizza was decent but everything else leaves you hungry and wanting something else from somewhere else. This place does have a lot of things in regards to alcohol though. I lived in the area through college and only managed to come here twice if that says anything...

This restaurant does not take reservations but wait time goes reasonably fast. The hostess gives you a beeper when your table is ready. Very large bustling good atmosphere. Service and staff very friendly and good. The menu is typically pub food. The food is good with a very wide selection. T.v's are placed throughout the restaurant. Pretty much anyplace you... More

May be ıt was a busy day before the classes start at this university town. However ıt should not be a good excuse for delivering the worst cheese fondue wıth some stale bread. We were not impressed at all.

The whole dreadful story is too long to tell. Three meals sent back multiple times out of 6 served. Chicken was raw, steak was cold and cooked incorrectly, the first time they replaced it they said it was made new but the cut piece on the plate would suggest otherwise. Gyro, don't even go there. Pita bread was like playdoh,... More

We recently visited the new location after the Arts Festival. The pub has relocated to a bigger and nicer location down the road from the original location. The food was very excellent. The macaroni with grilled portabella mushrooms was excellent! The servers were all very nice. Overall, nice place!
