Typical bar with typical bar food. A favorite for the fire guys taking classes at the nearby academy. Nothing special here. Gets loud and sometimes rowdy after dark.

They have a great selection of Beer and some great wings. The service is great. If you're in Emmitsburgh and you're looking for a few drinks or a. It's to eat you can't go wrong with the Ott house. If your at the NFA they offer a shuttle service.

Stopped by for a late lunch midweek. One of us enjoyed the Fried Oyster Sandwich, the other a large Caesar salad. Both were good and our waitress was attentive and very nice. Don't hesitate to patronize this local restaurant on the Main Street

A great friendly place to stop and have a beer or a basket of wings. Very friendly staff, very friendly owner, and a great firefighter friendly atmosphere.

We go to the Ott House from time to time and really enjoy the selection of beer. The menu has a decent selection and from what we have tried, it is delicious. It is a popular with the locals, but is friendly to non-locals as well. Give it a try.

Bring the earplugs ! This is a popular drinking bar for locals and firefighters but also has a posh dining area . The seafood is good but not as good as at nearby Rube's Crab Shack . There are 3 Valley brand pool tables in good shape , 7' bar boxes . If you like pool, drive the 30 minutes... More

We usually eat at the palms across the street which is better. Crab dip pretty good,, meals taste like frozen food heated up.

This is a fun, inexpensive place to come with family or friends. The food is very good, the drinks were great, (the beer was cold), and the servers were very friendly and attentive. Several in my group of 13 purchased their cool t-shirts, and we met the owner, who came by to say hello. There are a lot of artifacts... More
