Nothing really good or bad about Otto's. I had hoped it would be a bit better but then for a resort the prices were not bad, I assume that may be because most if not all of the units have kitchens.

We had a reservation arranged months prior for our rehearsal dinner, but they could not find it when we arrived. Luckily it was not busy at all and they scrambled to put it together so we could be seated. After comparing notes, most of our group was underwhelmed. The cheesecurds were really salty, but the mac and cheese, meat etc... More

We had dinner here on Friday night and it was good. The fish fry was wonderful, not greasy and very flaky. I had the quinoa salad and it was delicious.

I'm kind of picky with how my reuben is prepared, and they knocked it out of the park! I'm not a fan of thick pieces of corned beef, but the way they slice it is perfect. Best in the area!!

Our server last night could not have been sweeter! She was attentive, polite & personable. Also made our night showing us videos of her kitten opening doors. The food was well prepared, arrived in a reasonable amount of time, & was delicious as always!

Quality of food was great wit favorites being the pretzel crusted chicken and mac and cheese. Small quaint space reasonable prices although alcohol drinks are more expensive then I would expect. All in all a good restaurant for lunch dinner or breakfast.

Small but cozy and serves a great meal every time at a reasonable price. Lots of choices and a kid's menus as well.

I ate at Otto's for breakfast and dinner. During breakfast, the restaurant was not crazy busy, but yet I was asked to eat at the bar. I chose the Crab Cakes Benedict. They were great. Only thing that would have made them better was if the crab cakes would have had had a crunchier outer shell. A runny poached egg... More

Comfortable surroundings, great staff and good food all within a beautiful resort. Prices were reasonable for being within the resort. Had the NY strip steak dinner, a cocktail and carrot cake for dessert. All were served promptly at proper temp. Went back the next morning for breakfast. Potato pancakes were good but I should have asked for them crispy which... More

We arrived this morning at the Osthoff Resort and came to Otto's for breakfast right away. The restaurant was half full, so we were seated right away. Prices are moderate. We each had an omelet, which you are able to customize based on a list of ingredients. Portions are sufficient, and we could have easily split the meal. We both... More
