Description: 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.

Otto's is a large place with several rooms to choose from for seating. There are also 2 bars that have very comfortable seating and ample room to eat.The back bar is smaller, but it's a little less noisy than the main bar. If you don't mind eating at the bar, it's a way to bypass the crowd waiting in line for a table.

They have a nice selection of house-brewed beers, as well as a full bar. Food offered varies from snacks, to salads and sandwiches, to several choices of full dinners. All of the food we've ordered has been very good-try the Thai Salad for a spicy change. Prices are reasonable for a brewpub.

Most amazing fresh delicious food. Beer is phenomenal. They try to serve local. Only negative is the long waits on the weekends. Absolute favorite of locals - and visitors.

For State College, where there are 2 brewhouse style restaurants, this is not a bad choice. The food is typical but nothing stands out. Have tried the burgers and they have a good flavor but have been dry. Have also had salads and those were great every time. The beer is just...beer. There are far better microbrews at the local grocery (Wegmans).
But to be fair, my basis of comparison are beers and pubs of the west coast, especially in Portland, Oregon and in Seattle, Washington (soooo heavenly).

Black bean burrito with chicken is an awesome treat and not heavy. Add their sweet potato fries and the house root beer. The meal is outstanding and filling.
