Three Cheers for Otey’s Tavern

Three Cheers for Otey’s Tavern

In Mountain Brook, Ala., multiple generations have grown up relying on Otey’s Tavern, not only for great food, but also for a charming and laid-back atmosphere.

Tucked away in Crestline Village for more than two decades, Otey’s Tavern is a restaurant and bar whose customer base is as varied as its menu. Loyal customers range from teenagers grabbing a bite after school, to moms gathering for lunch with their small children, to college students looking to relax when the sun goes down.

Otey’s serves a variety of appetizing foods such as award winning wings, fried chicken salad, classic burgers and the soup of the day.


The tavern may be small in size, but its entertainment is vast. You can listen to live music from the best bands in the Birmingham area on Otey’s stage. Wednesdays at Otey’s are known for team trivia nights, which have become enticing and competitive for regulars. Occasionally, Otey’s even hosts block-style parties that attract larger crowds.

On March 16, Otey’s will co-host a St. Patrick’s Day party with About Town Magazine called “Shamrocks and Shenanigans,” featuring Seth Capper and The Cap Guns.

In no way does Otey’s consider itself fine dining, but instead a classic neighborhood hangout where everybody knows your name. Otey’s Tavern is more than a bar and more than a restaurant— it’s a staple of the Crestline community.
