While dining at another restaurant the server said Otto's was the place for breakfast, so we decided to check it out. YUP! they were right. Ashley our server was wonderful, but everything was. They had two kinds of quiche, my wife had the goat cheese and asparagus, it was wonderful and served with fresh fruit. My son had stuffed french... More

We fell into Otto's almost by accident while walking along the river and went for Brunch on Saturday. Wow! The food, staff and atmosphere was wonderful. There appeared to be several locals there which is always a good sign. Get there early for either the Saturday or Sunday brunch; one of the specials was gone by 1PM on Saturday but... More

We came to Otto's for breakfast because we heard amazing reviews, but we were a bit disappointed. The atmosphere is very cute and very welcoming, and there are lots of nice choices on the menu. I just felt that $9 for a slice of quiche and a small bowl of fruit was very expensive. The fruit was fresh, and the... More

We had read glowing reviews of this restaurant but were not wowed by our breakfast. We thought it was pretty pricy for basic breakfast fare. Sadly, they needed to charge an extra $1.50 for gluten free toast, and $1 on top of that for cheese. That's just ridiculous.

I recently spent the weekend in Galena and took the historic trolly tour. Drove by Otto's and about it's history. Decided to visit there for breakfast the following morning and Im so glad I did. The place was busy but we were seated upon entry. The host and waitresses were super friendly and the service was second to none. The... More

Otto's is great for breakfast and even better for dinner. My husband loves the pancakes and I love their breakfast potatoes. The muesli is very fruity and we usually share that. We try to make it there for dinner at least once a month. Their fish specials are always good and the turkey meatloaf with quinoa is the best. We... More

Everyone is so friendly here. The food is so good and prices are affordable. I love that they offer mimosa's and bloody Mary's with breakfast! I had the sweet potatoe hash which has now become my favorite!! Excellent place!

We went on a Friday night for dinner. We had the braised short ribs which melted in our mouths. The service was great. We concluded our meal with the pineapple upside down cake, which is made to order. Overall we had a great meal and a wonderful time!!!!

This is a nice breakfast spot across the river from the main drag. Their specials are good. I had Otto's Benedict. Be prepared for a wait, though.
