Great wings here. So many flavors. So delicious. Cheap eats. Good fun atmosphere for those traveling to the Fire Academy. Probably fun for non fire academy attendees too, if you can put up with all the firefighters! Great service. Great food.

You want small-town authentic? You want to be where the food is good but the atmosphere is better? You want to go to Ott House. Students from the nearby university go here when they have more cash than McD; the wall of firefighters' uniform patches is astonishing; your waitress (no "servers" here) will greet you with a hearty smile.

My husband and I stopped here as we were passing through the area. Really happy we did. The lunch was good, had burgers. The bartender friendly, made us feel comfortable and recommended the mango IPA which was really good. Will keep this on our list to stop again on our travels.

Typical bar with typical bar food. A favorite for the fire guys taking classes at the nearby academy. Nothing special here. Gets loud and sometimes rowdy after dark.

They have a great selection of Beer and some great wings. The service is great. If you're in Emmitsburgh and you're looking for a few drinks or a. It's to eat you can't go wrong with the Ott house. If your at the NFA they offer a shuttle service.

Stopped by for a late lunch midweek. One of us enjoyed the Fried Oyster Sandwich, the other a large Caesar salad. Both were good and our waitress was attentive and very nice. Don't hesitate to patronize this local restaurant on the Main Street

A great friendly place to stop and have a beer or a basket of wings. Very friendly staff, very friendly owner, and a great firefighter friendly atmosphere.

We go to the Ott House from time to time and really enjoy the selection of beer. The menu has a decent selection and from what we have tried, it is delicious. It is a popular with the locals, but is friendly to non-locals as well. Give it a try.

Thank kdustin
