Otto's place was one of the best places I have had dinner anywhere. A limited menu. However that allows for amazing flavor and creativity from the chef. If you are a foodie, you need to go here.

Food was great, service friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was both historic and comfortable. Parking on the street or very near public parking.

Once again, we had a very good family breakfast at Otto's! Our server was cheerful and helpful, but not intrusive. Biscuits and gravy is one of my breakfast favorites and theirs are wonderful. I also had a 1/2 order of corn beef hash, which I thought was just a little bit greasy, but very tasty. Others at the table had... More

This was our second visit to Otto's Place. Again, we had another excellent meal. While the weekend dinner menu is limited, everything that they do is excellent. I had the salmon and my husband had the pork.

We have been to Otto's several times and have never eaten a mediocre meal! Brunch is phenomenal with a variety of specials that make it difficult to choose! Dinner is out of this world, new choices on the menu keep it interesting. We had our wedding dinner at Otto's and returned for our first anniversary! The price is moderate, dress... More

We were pleased to find this restaurant near the train station on our side of the tracks. It is an establishment that is run with pride and it shows in every way. The restaurant is clean and neat and they are friendly and accommodating. We stopped for lunch and had homemade tomato soup and half sandwiches. Both were excellent! We... More

Interestingly located alongside the railroad tracks. The restaurant is located in an old two story building that has been attractively remodeled. The service was excellent and the food was unique and beautifully presented. If you're looking for a nice, relaxed evening with excellent food, this is the place.
