Generally regarded as one of the top rated dive bars in Kansas City you're guaranteed a warm and friendly welcome at Fred P Otts. Inside and outside dining options and a very competitively priced menu which makes for a good option if you're on a budget in this expensive part of town. Had the Gorgonzola burger. Awesome.

Down stairs was more like a traditional pub serving food, but you can still squeeze onto one of the small tables in the bar for your meal. There was also eating places that had better tables upstairs and outside on the patio, which had the better seats that we were not offered. Service was OK, basic and a bit rushed.... More

I've been to Fred P Ott's on the Plaza several time and every time I try a different burger and have yet to have anything other than the best burger I've had. The Patty Melt was amazing as well as the Biggie Burger. Fantastic!

Nice bar with lots of tv screens. Friendly staff. A good place to get something simple if you're tired of the fancy places at Country Club Plaza.

Staying on the plaza and stopped for lunch. Sliders were awesome and fries had great seasoning. The turkey Rueben was the best I have had. We were in for lunch, but looks to be a nice spot to hang out in the evening. Friendly staff. The bartender delivered our order when he saw it sitting there and the waitress was... More

We rolled into KC late in the evening and had limited dining choices... Glad we ended up here! Cool atmosphere, darn good burger, stiff drinks, and friendly service

This was a hole in the wall find. Mostly pub style food. However Saturday night they have their 8 oz filet on sale for 11.00. With that you get a salad, mashed potatoes and gravy string beans and toast. The steak was fantastic, very tender. The mashed potatoes were ok. Our waiter forgot the green beans until dinner was over.... More

Decided to try Fred P Ott's while walking the downtown neighborhood. Great choice. Very attentive Waite and bar staff. Had planned to have One of their hamburgers but a recommendation from the server and two other patrons convinced me to go and have their 8oz strip steak special. The steak was cooked to order with a very good retail price.... More

Fred's has been a staple of my family for decades . The food is usually good but it seems like the kitchen has been a little off lately . I was served a questionable hamburger once and the other time it took the cook 20 minutes to let us know he was out of two of the three items we... More

There are wood carvings from all around adorned on the walls - some of them are pretty intricate. I didn't eat there, I just went to meet some people for drinks. They have a good assortment of beers on tap and the prices were very reasonable. Servie was very good.
