We recently had lunch here and the place is great. Very good food and friendly service. When we pulled in and smelled the outside smoker we couldn't wait to get in and try some delicious food.

The food at Otto's is dependable. The choices are plentiful, but not a fine dining experience, and that is to be expected. I would say for a Microbrewery the food really good, beer is excellent. It honestly depends on what you are looking for. Friends...More

There is a variety of foods available. Something for everyone. The craft beer is delicious. It can get pretty loud inside but in a nice day or evening the outdoor seating is very pleasant.

They have excellent mozzarella sticks here. They often run out of them though. They also have pretzels as an appetizer which is a good choice if they're out of mozzarella sticks. They also have good pizzas and great service. (I find they're bad at turning...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.
