A landmark

I am saying average....but its maybe bit unfair. The food was fine, service fine.....but the place had an odd smell. Daughter thought it smelled like urine.....frankly a good cleaning would help this place a whole lot.

The food is very good and you do get a lot, but I think it's a little pricey, I probably wont go back

They are awesome -- their soups are really good, and the food is exactly what you want to see and eat. AND they give a discount if you show your military I.D.

A good place to stop in for lunch, especially in Herkimer where the choices are very limited. Excellent burgers. Much better choice than a chain restaurant.

Not bad but don't expect anything more than your traditional diner fare. I ordered the breakfast burrito and my wife had the breakfast sandwich. Both plates lacked a "wow" factor and tasted kind like I cooked them myself at home. That being said I'd probably eat here again if only to try their omelettes.

We visit Crazy Otto's frequently, either for breakfast, brunch, lunch, you name it! The portions are plentiful, and the food is simply fantastic! You get that home-cooked feel, and are always greeted by a friendly face. Very friendly staff, and excellent service!

We ate 2 breakfasts here. Both were excellent. The service was spot on, and the atmosphere is fun. Easy parking in front, with cheap meters ready to be fed.....25c per hour. Free on Sundays/holidays. Would be a regular there, if I lived in or near Herkimer. Enjoy!
