2009-04-18 18:09:55   Back in 1998 I started hanging out at the Otter Lodge and once I moved out of Brighton, I always loved to return to it every once in a while. Recently, I went with a friend for an Alcohol free visit and was pleased to see that the bartender was educated on the different types of non-alcoholic beers. I chose O'Douls (spelling) — We went to see the Bills game and primarily, we went for the amazing wings they have. I told my friend Tom about the Chicken Parm wings, and they were even better this time around. Very yummy! I highly reccomend the Chicken Parm Wings. They are not greasy/sticky parm like at Buffalo Wild Wings. These appear to be deep fried then taken out and have some smooth baste put on them then left to sit and then the parm batter/powder is added. It is not sloppy. My buddy ordered the BBQ wings and he claimed they were great! He also order a set of fries which was a massive order - could be a main course.

Lower room is huge and allows for parties w/ plenty of darts. Upstairs, did I mention darts? Three I believe sitting in a good position that doesn't interfere w/ the rest of the crowd.

Back in 1998, I used to love sitting next to the make-shift fire in a nice booth eating their signature clams. I am not sure and would like to know if they still do the famous clams on Sunday.

One of the nicest places to go visit. You will see a lot of regulars there, including comic standup and Brightonian, Sky Sands. The bartender gals are adorable and are very accommodating even if it's ordering a non-alcoholic beer!

Parking, I must admit is the only negative. That's all folks!
