Remember the bar in Star Wars ?

Slightly freaky bar - one of the few open late in this area. Good choice of bottled beer and local brews. Popular with waiting staff later at night. We met our server from earlier in there !!

The breaded pork tenderloin sandwich was great. They offered to split my side with fries and onion rings because I wanted to try both. We were also able to bring our dog and sit on the patio. The service is a little slow, but friendly. Prices were reasonable given it's located in Country ClubPlaza. For dog owners, there isn't an... More

Stayed on the plaza for a bachelor party trip. The first night, we wanted to stay close-- so we went to three bars, including this joint. It was pretty busy, but not wall to wall people. Drink prices were what you'd expect. And we walked right up to the bar and ordered. They have a nice little patio area, which... More

We came here for dinner on a Sunday evening because we couldn't get into another place and it was pouring down rain outside. My parents taught me that if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all. But this place was sad in so many ways. The service was sad. Our (female) server was almost apologetic. Unlike most... More

They've crammed a lot of tables and filled the corners to seat as many customers as they can, but I can't blame them for that. Just business. The service was good, the drinks made well and the atmosphere was certainly enjoyable.

Ott's has been around a long time and has been a lunchtime favorite for about as long. Great burgers and pretty quick service for lunch. Worth a shot.

It's the armpit of the plaza, but when you get a drunk waitress and loud karaoke you seem to forget the old decor and fall back into your college routine. We got some free rounds because the waitress lost track. Fun experience if you don't have expectations and you forget the plaza high end shops and restaurants are around the... More

I can only sum up my visit by saying I was in and out the door in less than 4 minutes. I used to come here all the time in the 1990's and it was great. Not so now! Dirty looking and greasy with shabby décor straight from the 1980's when it first opened. Trashy appearance. I could go on... More

Once in a while it is great when classic bars from your younger days are exactly the same as you remember - even after 30 years away. While this time I just stopped in for a drink and to reminisce a little, I have many fond memories of juicy burgers in this tiny spot on the edge of the Plaza.... More
