I frequent here quite a bit as I live in the area. I occasionally get some of their food.
I enjoy the atmosphere there as it is a little bit older then where people my age (my kin) typically like to frequent. I enjoy the more relaxed less dancey feel of the place.
They have a nice layout with two separate bars (where the one operates on busy days). The service there is really quite good. They are typically quite quick to greet you and ask if you would like a drink ( I typically go to the bar, but on occasion am seated - they are good there as well). The food selection is sorta standard fro a brewpub in my eye. Pizza, sandwiches, salads and a few meals. the pizza is good, but other then that I don't have much to comment on (I typically go in for just beer or beer and a very light appetizer (which are good by the way)). The prices are a little high, but again gauging from the atmosphere they are more geared toward the middle aged family./ single man with a little more disposable income then someone like me. The beer however is very reasonably priced. Overall a nice place to sit, drink and think.

As a beer lover and now Penn Stater I need some place to get my local beer fix. Otto's fulfilled my expectations perfectly. Since I've been here, I visited four times, and each time has been a wonderful experience.
First of all, the beer is pretty good. Not world class, not even great in some cases, but is mostly pretty darn tasty. For the craft newcomers, I'd say the Apricot Wheat, Apple Tripel, and Black Mo are safe bets. I was a big fan of the Green Hop Ale III and the Wee Heavy. Flights of 5 beers are available for $5. It's a no-brainer.
Service was great. Each time my waiter/waitress was very patient and informative.
The food might be the best part. Last time I had the Elk Burger Club. Just great. My brother has gotten the Pretzel Roll Sandwich each time he's been and that is just delicious. The fries (potato and sweet potato) are perfect.
You won't be disappointed with this place, whether you're looking for beer, food, or both.

Ottot is the original happy valley brew pub. Everything that the make is great. The food and service are top notch and the menu is exceptional for a brewpub. They take pride in what they do and it shows. The dry stout on nitro is my favorite. So we'll done! Red mo is nice too and most of their standard offerings are available in keg, case and six pack. The beer geek destination in central pa!!!

I love going to Otto's. I always enjoy their beers, and they have an interesting menu and tasty specials. My husband and I usually try to get out there at least once a month, often more than that. They have a Pub Club thing and a gift shop with all kinds of beer-related nifty-gifties. If you're in the State College area, it's worth a visit.

Stopped in here on the way to the Voodoo release, I have been to State College Hundreds of times but this was my first trip here. Very nice building with lots of room to spread out and watch the NCAA games on the TV's. Large bar in the middle with lots of people at it. Service was good. We didn't have to wait for our beers and food and he was able to suggest a few beers to try.
Quality was pretty good, beer was in the correct glasses and the food was fresh. Speaking of food, I got the brisket cheesesteak and an order of corn fritters, both were quite tasty and affordable. Selection was pretty good. I saw a few things I would have liked to try, my first selection was all gone but I was able to get the rye IPA on cask instead and it was decent. Prices were pretty good all things considered.
Overall a nice brewpub that I will definitely return to in the future.
