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.

I heard on the Radio of the best Philly Cheese Steak was at this new chain in town. Not true!! Best Philly Cheese Steak goes to Fred P Ott's Bar and Grill. Fred P Ott's is not a fancy restaurant but if you want good American Bar Food there is none better. What I like about any of their locations... More

I know Fred P's has been around a long time. The drinks are affordable, and if you are just hanging out for happy hour it is fine, but man there is a definite funk when you walk in the door. I wouldn't eat there for dinner. Used the restroom once and wish that i hadn't.

I wanted something other than a big dinner and the hotel recommended this place. Fred P. Ott's isn't long on a wine list, but the burgers are pretty good and the onion rings just right. If you want a late night snack or burger, saddle up the bar, say hello to Melanie and enjoy this place. Not a fine dine,... More
