Had a 45 minute wait on Saturday night of Blue White football weekend. Otto's root beer is excellent-not too sweet! Food is plentiful and good. Service was very good, considering how busy the restaurant was. Try the pretzel appetizer-yum!

I ate here with my husband and son. The best thing we had was the apricot wheat beer. We thought the food was average and the service was good. A nice place for lunch and I would go again if we are in the area.

The parking lot was full so we thought that this place must be great so we gave it a try. We all ordered burgers cooked the same way, medium rare. Each burger was cooked differently, one came medium well, another well done, and another with...More
