We came for lunch. Our server led us through the beer list with finesse, giving us all the information we needed to make our selections. Three of us ordered from the specials menu - salmon tacos and Thai chicken pizza. Our son must have had the cheesesteak before - it was abundantly stuffed and disappeared fast. The fries are a...

We had a long wait for a table but it was worth it! The Apricot Wheat beer is fantastic. Try the pretzel with the crab dip, it's tasty! Our server was friendly and all three of us enjoyed our meals! We will definitely return!!

March 23, 2017 arrived at 6, received a drink by 6:20, dinner was finally served at 7:25. I have been to places twice as big and received better service than I received at this place. I had a warm Phillycheese Steak and hot fries.

This is a beer specialty pub and very friendly place to eat and drink. Staff is cordial, witty and knowledgeable of beer selection and food specials - favorites. We had a table for four and our waiter was very prompt and friendly. The food was very hot, tasty and filling. I had the gouda chicken sandwich and a house salad.... More

Seems to be always a wait and a popular place, but Ohmygoodness is the food delish! The macaroni and cheese is to die for! The cocktails are excellent. Service superb. Awesome atmosphere.

We stayed at the Fairfield Inn and Suites because we were attending the Accepted Students Day at PSU. Since this was right across the parking lot, we decided to give it a try. I had a crab cake(so glad I only ordered one, it was HUGE!), and my husband and son both had burgers. Food was delicious, our waiter was... More

My husband and I had dinner here on a Thursday evening while visiting the State College area. The restaurant was busy for a weeknight, but we waited only about 15-20 min for a table. Our server was very attentive and helpful with beer recommendations. My husband had a "black and blue" burger, which he enjoyed, and I had a grilled... More

Definitely a place to try! Food was excellent. We were there at lunch, so we didn't try any of the beers - but they had a lot to choose from it appeared.

Thank sunmaiden26

We're nuts about fine beer and fresh, local food. Otto's is fiercely committed to quality. Our beer is handcrafted with the finest ingredients available. Our American bistro cuisine is made with fresh ingredients from local farms, wineries, and bakeries. Our brewery and restaurant are co-located and feature a family-friendly and casual atmosphere. We're located in State College, PA, minutes from Penn State.
