Personable staff and varied menu. Burgers were good. Fries a bit disappointing. Great looking bar with ample seating.

My family loves stopping at Otto's for beer and wings (and lots of other things on their menu!) when we visit our daughter in State College. In fact, I was never a beer drinker until I tried the available-for-a-limited-time-only strawberry beer at Otto's. Wow! It...More

Walked over from hotel next door. Food was really good. Nice outdoor seating area. Friendly staff. If you like fried pickles, you'll love these (beer battered). Also found good "poutine" outside of Wisconsin.

1/2 price pizzas on Sunday. Such a great deal! House—made root beer is yummy! We really loved the poutine too. They were able to sit our table for 9 with little wait-time. Always worth a stop when in Happy Valley!

Excellent beers, good service. Poor food preparation. We waited for over 30 minutes for a table and enjoyed a drink. No problem in waiting on a busy Saturday night. I ordered wings, with mango habanero sauce. The sauce tasted like it might have been mashed...More

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.
