Stopped at Otto's for a beer with friends. The interior is very cool with lots of old German and Bavarian charm. Beer selection was great (I loved the Ranger IPA) and bartender was very nice and friendly. Prices were reasonable and even though we did not stay for dinner their menu selections looked yummy. They also have a beer garden... More

Sat by the window and watched the snow fall down. We had beer/cheese soup and chili, then shared a piece of german chocolate cake. All were delicious! Service was slow, but the waitress was friendly,

Love the atmosphere with a very big stone fire place. Love their german specialties for lunch and featured appetizers. Staff is very warm, friendly and attentive. Check out their great selection of German beers. This is a must stop to take a break from shopping at the nearby quaint novelty shops and clothing stores.

This is our favorite restaurant in the Minocqua area. Try the German Nachos! Burgers are tasty. Great atmosphere. On nice summer days sir outside on the back patio. Weekends you can often find live music. Drinks to satisfy both my husband and myself (wine and craft beer). This restaurant is perfect for all generations. We bring family ages 10-83.

Otto's is a good bar/grill. We've enjoyed the soup, brats, and my husband likes the sauerkraut. Staff was very attentive and friendly.

We hit Otto's twice while in Minocqua. They have a great bloody Mary and wonderful hot pretzels. Soups are good, great brats and German potato salad. The servers are friendly and food came out quickly.

We always stop by Ottos for our German "fix". The Grotto in the back is enchanting! The food is very good! I recommend the Brats and beer soup! Take your picture with the life size "Otto" outside the restaurant!

Great place for a couple of drinks or for lunch or dinner. Incredible little beer garden in back if it's warm enough outside. We love this place and I highly recommend stopping in the next time you're in Minocqua.

We enjoyed Otto's Famous Brat and the Cuban Carnitas sandwiches. They have a nice selection of draft beer and the Bloody Mary cocktail is excellent. Our service was prompt and friendly. A nice place to "unwind" and enjoy the surroundings.
