Otto's is a good bar/grill. We've enjoyed the soup, brats, and my husband likes the sauerkraut. Staff was very attentive and friendly.

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.

We always stop by Ottos for our German "fix". The Grotto in the back is enchanting! The food is very good! I recommend the Brats and beer soup! Take your picture with the life size "Otto" outside the restaurant!

Great place for a couple of drinks or for lunch or dinner. Incredible little beer garden in back if it's warm enough outside. We love this place and I highly recommend stopping in the next time you're in Minocqua.

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?
