We hit Otto's twice while in Minocqua. They have a great bloody Mary and wonderful hot pretzels. Soups are good, great brats and German potato salad. The servers are friendly and food came out quickly.

I got an email saying someone had a question about a place that I reviewed. This is not a question that you have, but a comment. Just curious...what are you trying to accomplish with your sarcastic reviews????
Why was the post I had in regards to this dump taken down?

Not real sure what your post was but it sure looks like you have it in for Otto's? When you had an issue with them did you address it with them or just go home and vent on here?
