Tom-Tom Tap

The Tom-Tom Tap is a traditional 1950’s style Hotel Lounge. Step back in time to sit at the horseshoe design bar and enjoy a cocktail. The Tom-Tom tap serves a variety of domestic, imported, and craft beer. The full menu from the Second Street Café is available all day until 10pm. A limited menu is available until close, and we never stop making pizza!

The Tom-Tom tap is a great destination for brunch. Try the Hotel Hash made with our famous sausage gravy; pair it with one of our award-winning Bloody Marys. Tom-Tom Tap is a great place to have a quick lunch – and as for your choice of beverage? We’ll never tell…

Our unique interior features an authentic mural painted in 1951 by Daniel MacMorris celebrating Ottumwa’s Native heritage titled Ceremonial Fire. Come and sit around the Ceremonial Fire for an evening of genuine enjoyment in the glow of local color.


Second Street Café

The Second Street Café, located off the lobby on the main floor, offers a menu sure to satisfy. The restaurant serves homestyle food as a buffet for lunch, dinner on occasion, plus we feature a Saturday morning breakfast buffet. The menu, which includes breakfast all day, sandwiches, appetizers, dinners, and desserts, allows everyone to order their own personal favorite. Second Street Café is a local favorite, and visitors enjoy dining here when visiting the Ottumwa area.
