Overall charming place. Really liked the fire patches on the walls. Food was fast and good. Rating 4 stars due to only 1 refill allowed on soft drinks.

Nice, hometown feel to this spot, with the walls decorated with firefighter badges (National Fallen Firefighters Memorial is just down the road). Enjoyed the ample hot turkey sandwich and a local IPA.

Great wings here. So many flavors. So delicious. Cheap eats. Good fun atmosphere for those traveling to the Fire Academy. Probably fun for non fire academy attendees too, if you can put up with all the firefighters! Great service. Great food.

You want small-town authentic? You want to be where the food is good but the atmosphere is better? You want to go to Ott House. Students from the nearby university go here when they have more cash than McD; the wall of firefighters' uniform patches...More
