A lot of fun, a little crowded

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.

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

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

I have been coming to the one on the Plaza since the 80's and it has always been good. It's not the most current 'sports bar;, meaning it doesn't have 50 TV's going all at once, but it has cold beer, good food, cold beer, a great location, and cold beer. And you can usually find parking in the garage... More

We visit the Overland Park area annually for business. Fred P Otts is walking distance from the hotel. The atmosphere is fun with daily food and drink specials. Our waitress was friendly and knowledgeable about local beers. A must visit.

Staying with a friend and this was the closest place to walk to on a cold night. It was a lot smaller than I thought would be. There is a bar, a few scattered tables, and an upstairs area that was occupied by some sort of "Ladies Club" who were more than a tad hostile when I strayed into their... More

Fun little pub - reminded us of some of our Irish/midlands UK haunts. Easy to find - good for snacks and nice little beer/IPA issues. No biggie but kind of fun. The upstairs "lair" is cute.
