We stopped by Otto's for a second time after our experience there the day before was outstanding. First day we tried the Sweet Potato Hash & Corn Beef Hash breakfast, both were perfect and very filling. They came with eggs your choice and with a home made biscuit. Second day we both orders quiches, specialty item for Otto's also, was... More

We went to this restaurant several time over the last few years, it has been always very good. We suggest Otto's Place for a family brunch on Sunday.

Excellent place to eat and relax off the main strip. If the restaurants on the main street are busy, check this place out. It aways seems to be forgotten and its one of the best.

Otto's was recommended to me by several locals. I stopped in for a solo lunch and had a lovely time. My omelette was unique with Gorgonzola, Apple and bacon. The toast was fresh and crusty. The vibe is quiet and chill. I felt comfortable lingering over my lunch. Will be back!

We haven't even left the restaurant and had to write this review. It's a little chic restaurant just a couple blocks away from Main St. Galena. It reminds me of the olden days. The service is great and the food is AMAZING.

So good we ate at Otto's two days in a row. Very good breakfasts, including gluten free fare. We enjoyed eating upstairs, on a cold day downstairs near the door may be drafty. Was a short walk from Galena. Very pleasant tables and decor.
