This is a great spot for brunch. It was right down from our B&B so it was a logical choice for us to grab lunch. Overall the service was fast and the food was outstanding. Well worth going to.

Went for "Ladies Weekend" and tried Otto's for first (and second) time. What a WONDERFUL experience! Excellent food, great ambiance, delightful servers and endearing treatment. Treated like family. We enjoyed the 5 star quality food prepared by Chicago-worthy chef who is given enough artistic latitude to be both creative and delicious. Went back the second evening to enjoy the lounge, liqueurs, and incredible homemade desserts. We have already made plans to go back! The way we were treated is just not commonly found. What wonderful people and place! Thank you, John (owner) for treating the 4 Karaoke ladies so well!

Well worth going across the river! We were there on the weekend of Nov 8-10, due to a "tip" from a local business owner. Great advice!d Excellent French toast for breakfast No need to drown it in syrup. It's what you'd enjoy at home if you were back there, but since you aren't, it seems even better. The country Benedict was great. A bottomless cup of coffee. They do supper only on Friday and Saturday, and in order to make everything with fresh ingredients, they serve a limited number of guests. People show up, so reservations are a must! Excellent balsamic barbecued chicken with grilled veggies. John runs things very well and makes you right at home. We will visit there when we make more of our weekend getaways in Galena.

We have dined @ Otto's several times and have never been disappointed - they have unique appetizers and wonderful entrees. The lounge area is cozy and comfy. Well worth a trip to Galena - !!

Stopped here on Sunday morning before leaving town after a weekend visit. Great coffee and the food tasted amazing. I'd love to try everything on the menu! Service was great. We appreciated the lounge area since there was a short wait for a table.

We'll be back for sure!
