Ambiance was neat, very authentic. Food was not so good. Cocktails were weak. The beer cheese soup was not home made, it was like they opened a No.10 can of cheese sauce and added beer to it.

We ate in the outside patio area in the back. The service was excellent, the food was good but not outstanding. They have good beer selections too. Had some vegetarian choices. Would go back again

Good service. Brat, cider beer, regular beer, and pretzel... and German potato salad were so good we stopped again on the return trip! Service was a little slow but no big deal. It was worth it!

It is hard to make a brat different than the norm. We had good service and drinks. The food was fine but unremarkable. We had fun.

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????

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?
