    I had called Otto's before making this reservation to see if they were serving Father's Day breakfast and I was told that yes they would be open for Father's Day. When we arrived on Sunday morning we were told that they were not serving that day, that it was only a buffet and was $15/per child. We decided not to stay and went elsewhere and were disappointed that we were not told ahead of time about buffet only.

    Otto's appears to not be what it once was. It was our first visit and unfortunately last. Though the waitress was very nice, the food was mediocre and restaurant "tired". Being a German Brauhaus, we ordered German specialties, but disappointed in the quality as the meat and was overcooked and who knows where the Red Cabbage came from. One of our party order the pork loin and subsequently suffered a night of visiting the bathroom many times and missing work the following day. The next day she said she thought the meat tasted a bit off. The restaurant has great potential but definitely needs new management and a facelift.

    Overall, not a really good experience. We arrived at the restaurant at 8:30 AM however they did not let us in until closer to 9 AM. The restaurant was dated, dirty and looks like it could use a deep cleaning. We were the only table in the restaurant and there was only one waitress. It took forever for her to get us a menu, take our order and get us our food. The outside of the restaurant was dirty, grass was not cut and pretty much looked abandoned. I will not go back to this restaurant. Just a guess, they look like they are going out of business.

    Ottos must have been a great place for German food back in the day. Unfortunately, it appears rundown and the German meals were not very flavorful and was obviously reheated.

    Haven’t been here since mid 2019. As with other restaurants in the area they are understaffed. We waited a few minutes longer than usual to get a drink. Once waiter took our order, soup came right out. Our waiter was working very very hard and he did a great job. Entrees did take a bit long. I m happy to say the food was as good as I remember. Portions were a good size. Place needs some cleaning and updating, especially outside concrete and landscaping.

    The quality of the food here was as bad as Old Country Buffet and Cracker Barrel. I am German and their idea of German food is no where close to authentic. The sever was very nice but the women tending bar were not very friendly. Honestly my husband and I are trying to figure out how a restaurant like this ended up on Open Table.

    Plenty of room and spacing under the outside seating roof. As usual, the service was efficient, friendly and expert. I ordered the meat lovers omelet and it was disappointingly dry, but the others in my party were perfectly happy with their orders of pancakes, corned beef hash and Mr. McGregor's Garden, which was a veggie omelet. We are long-time fans of Otto's and so happy to be dining there again - we will certainly return.

    Very limited menu. Food is very bland. One dish had gravy (that tasted like gravy & sauerkraut) that didn't state gravy on the menu. The schnitzel was dry, the sauerkraut was extremely sour (my mother in law is from Germany and she didn't like it either). Definitely not mouth watering. Drinks are expensive. Coffee was delicious! We were sat right outside the bar which gave us a headache as the few people in there were social distanced, so they had to yell to each other. We will not be dining there again.

    We ate at a mid-p.m. time purposely, and avoided others...very very few people inside ! Our choices were beef stroganoff and pork chops with chunky apples...delicious ! Chris made us feel at home. Dessert was apple strudel shared, with vanilla ice cream...Heavenly! Good and safe time !

    I really like this place. Met some buddies the other night for some beers & food. Place was pretty empty, but it was a Wednesday night so to be expected. We requested a seat outside, and we were escorted out to the patio which was dark. They fired up the lights just for us! Waitress was attentive but not overbearing, the 22oz beers were nice and cold, and the food was great as always. Hard to believe with a massive outdoor space they aren’t busier. Definitely go to Ottos soon for some awesome brats and cold German beers!!

    Had no idea they had a smaller menu these days than what is on the website, not listed anywhere. They were missing the one dish my wife and I both wanted to get, plus the main German side dish, Spätzle, they were out of too! How do they run out of this?? Menu was printed poorly, all crooked, no description of anything so we had to look them up on our phones at the table. Dish we both got was Sauerbraten, and it was like dried out pot roast with overly vinegar based gravy. Not good. Birthday dinner too, so disappointed. Used to go there often a little while ago, but will not be back.
