We stopped at the Ott House for lunch before dropping our son off for a camp. Cool pub setting, good wait staff and the food was good pub faire. I had a BLT and it was very good. It actually had so much bacon that it was falling off the sandwich. Everyone else was very happy with their food.

The only negative might be that there is a lingering "smoky" smell after years of smoking, but you quickly forget about it. But those sensitive to odors may want to keep this in mind.

I love this place, whenever attending the National Fire Academy/Emergency Management Training Center in Emmitsburg, MD we always visit. Their prices are reasonable, they serve food and usually have nightly specials. Their collection of fire department patches is really amazing. There is also entertainment. Service is good, met the owner who bartends on occasion and he is a really nice guy. They also have a shuttle which is really convenient after a couple of drinks!

We ate here for dinner while in town to attend a class at the National Fire Academy. The food was good - certainly not the best we have ever had but certainly acceptable. Service was prompt and our server was very friendly. The atmosphere is somewhat like a sports bar as dart games and pool tables are also available. The walls, counters, etc. are decorated with fire department patches too numerous to count. Not a fancy place but certainly a lot of character!

The Ott House has a wonderful atmosphere and decor. The walls are covered with patches from different fire stations. The Emmitsburg Firestation is next door to the restaurant. The menu had lots of choices and the prices were excellent. The waitstaff were friendly and helpful. I would be happy to eat there again.

Stopped by with my wife for a quick meal. We read the good reviews here. We liked the atmosphere. We ordered two buffalo chicken salads. They were pretty disappointing. You can get a better salad at the Wendy's in Thurmont for half the price. We really couldn't believe that we had been served the right meal. Just basic lettuce, cold chicken slices and a hot sauce on the side. Maybe we should have tried something else but I doubt we will give it another chance.
