We had an amazing dinner at Otto's! We visit FBG regularly, and always like to try new places. Otto's has been our favorite dinner in FBG. Get the veal bratwurst plate and thank me later.

The best advice is to get there early (no reservations accepted) and check out the menu before being seated. We saw several parties come in, wait for a table, sit down, look at the menu and then excuse themselves and leave. This is not your...More

I reviewed all of the higher rated establishments reviews and decided on Otto's. Had the Duck Schnitzel with Anchovy and it was outstanding. Ate at the bar because all tables were busy. Small, intimate. Seats about 28. Friendly staff and superb service.

We visited Otto's, since it is advertised as one of the typical German restaurants in town. The place is small and offers indoor and outdoor seating. With the Texas summer being unbearable, we chose to sit indoors. The dining area is rustic, with a small...More

We have eaten at Otto's several times and they have never disappointed us with a great German meal. You will pay a little more but worth it.

Small venue inside, but not cramped. Professional service, but everyone was friendly too. I had the duck schnitzel. Different and delicious, as we're the authentic German side dishes (served under the schnitzel). Everyone loved their food, my friend said it was the second best pork...More

No and that's a problem as it's so small. Difficult table on weekends. But plenty of room next door at their ice house. We give them our cell number, go next door to the ice house, order a wine and chill. Works for us. It's... More

I am certain they do, although their menu does vary from week to week. They always have meat and vegetable options. Always fresh and local ingredients. I am sure the chef can accommodate gluten free options, as it is so... More
