Beer was good and they had a good variety. Food was mediocre but reasonably priced. Place was crowded but got seated fast.

Have been here several times and always met our expectations. One of the better places to eat at State College. Bar scene is fun before night games if you’re not into tailgating. The Kids really like it..

This was our 2nd visit at Otto's (first time was while visiting State College in April 2017). A lovely place for lunch and beer. Not exactly Germany, but probably the most German eating place in State College...The choice of hamburgers is nice and will answer...More

Our American bistro cuisine is made with fresh ingredients from local farms, wineries, and bakeries. Our brewery and restaurant are co-located and feature a family-friendly and casual atmosphere. We're located in State College, PA, minutes from Penn State.
