I've had beer, wine, food and appetizers at Otto's, and I've never been disappointed! Their menu is not extensive when it comes to food, but I've never gotten anything that I've been disappointed with. I'm usually not much of a beer connoisseur, but I've actually tried quite a few of their beers and have liked most of them.

Food is okay at Best. The pizza was decent but everything else leaves you hungry and wanting something else from somewhere else. This place does have a lot of things in regards to alcohol though. I lived in the area through college and only managed to come here twice if that says anything...

This restaurant does not take reservations but wait time goes reasonably fast. The hostess gives you a beeper when your table is ready. Very large bustling good atmosphere. Service and staff very friendly and good. The menu is typically pub food. The food is good with a very wide selection. T.v's are placed throughout the restaurant. Pretty much anyplace you... More

May be ıt was a busy day before the classes start at this university town. However ıt should not be a good excuse for delivering the worst cheese fondue wıth some stale bread. We were not impressed at all.

The whole dreadful story is too long to tell. Three meals sent back multiple times out of 6 served. Chicken was raw, steak was cold and cooked incorrectly, the first time they replaced it they said it was made new but the cut piece on the plate would suggest otherwise. Gyro, don't even go there. Pita bread was like playdoh,... More

We recently visited the new location after the Arts Festival. The pub has relocated to a bigger and nicer location down the road from the original location. The food was very excellent. The macaroni with grilled portabella mushrooms was excellent! The servers were all very nice. Overall, nice place!

We visited on a weekday evening at dinner. The restaurant was extremely crowded and we had to wait about 25 minutes to be seated. The server seemed to be harried and over-worked, but still friendly. The seating is extremely close so they can pack in the maximum amount of customers. I'd like to see what it looks like when the... More

It has been a long time since I've dined at Otto's so on my last trip to State College a friend and I decided to have dinner there. I was pleasantly surprised with the eclectic menu. The variety of appetizers was outstanding as well as the unique pizzas. Everything we had was excellent and the server was attentive.

Otto's is a great place for burgers, sandwiches, and brick oven pizza. The pizza is half price on Sundays! The margaretta pizza is very good.
