Our Story

During this time of quarantine, we would like to let everyone know that we are open for take-out and delivery between the hours of 12:00 pm and 8:00 pm.

Over the past few weeks, we have increased our diligence in hygienic practices. Now, with the statewide shutdown of restaurants and bars, we would like to continue to offer take-out and delivery options to our friends and neighbors in Eastlake.

Local Ownership.

The Otter Bar and Burger was recently purchased by a husband/wife team.  With Lisa having over 30 years experience in the hospitality industry and Jim having extensive experience in sales and marketing, they are looking to continue bringing good food to the Eastlake neighborhood.  Weekly and Monthly "Specials" will start revolving through the menu in the beginning of 2020 to add a little variety.  Additionally, more theme nights will be added to the "Happenings" section of this site.

We look forward to welcoming customers and offering everyone a place that feels like an extension of their living room.

Food Savvy General Management.
