Brawls at night, rumors of drug activity, police calls late at night. The Otter House has great food and began with great intentions, but went downhill from there with their reputation. If they can clean up their act, it would be a good place to visit.

Went for lunch during the week with husband and son. I ordered the white pizza, the waitress returned to inquire what cheeses I wanted on my pizza; american, cheddar, or swiss. I advised what cheeses should be on the pizza and thought the problem was solved. Thirty minutes later she brings my husbands hot-dog and son's sandwich and informs me... More

Stopped here as nothing really else open in Old Town Fredericksburg on a Saturday night at 8:30pm (Irish Brigade was open but they wanted a $10 cover charge per person). Inside decor pretty collegeesqe, meaning not a lot of decor to speak of. Bar was small with a really strange selection of microbrews. The burgers were very good and the... More

The restaurant needs a serious makeover inside, but the food is TOP NOTCH! The burgers are amazing and very original! The flatbread sandwiches are unlike anything I've ever had in the way of a sandwich... They're HUGE and TASTY! Made with all fresh lettuces and ingredients and fresh grilled meats - they truly are amazing! Try the Jerk Chicken flatbread!!... More

We stopped in Fredericksburg for the night in route to upstate New York. We just wanted something casual a sandwich for him and a salad or something light for me. After reading the reviews for the Otter House. We choose it, the food was not terrible ,but it was pretty mediocre at best, and the drinks were watered down and... More

The Otter House is a great little bar in Fredericksburg with a long line of history related to Mary Washington College. Back when it was the Irish Brigade in the late 80's and early 90's, it was the most popular spot in Fredericksburg. It has been updated with a new look that works very well. Most importantly, this is where... More

Don't know why this place isn't busier, but the food is quite good...especially the specials, so take advantage of them.

Very good prices here for lunch or dinner. We had the bison burgers, and HUGE and flavorful. Had a coupon, and needed to spend $35 to use it, and were hard pressed for 2 of us to get the price UP to $35. Great onion rings, great burgers, enjoyed the spring rolls, fries were ok, preferred the onion rings. Very... More

Nice admosphere, but I always love these old places in downtown F-Burg. Great staff and service, very helpful waitress with a nice personality. Nice selection of local and other microbrew draft beers; 70s funk playing on the sound system which didn't really fit the place but was nonetheless enjoyable. My wife's pulled pork sandwich with coleslaw was very good. The... More

Quick service - large everything. 3 of us ate on a Saturday afternoon a couple of weeks ago. Decor indicates the owner likes otters. Food was delivered quickly, we were accomodated with some swaps of side orders with no problem. I saw a huge wrap of some sort being served at another table that could not possibly be consumed by...
