Had reservations get "lost" at a restaurant up the street, so happened to stumble upon Oscar's while looking around the block. Lucked out that a larger table was just leaving and they could accommodate us (evidently Tuesday is a busy night on the town). The food was simply perfect and delicious. The only negative was service that wasn't very attentive.... More

Wonderful experience from the moment we arrived in the door as we received a very warm welcome from all the staff. Our meal was superb from start to finish which included desert which we don't usually have but did as it was Sean's birthday. A perfect evening.

we are so glad we stopped here the food was amazing and the service was first rate. The servers really wanted you to enjoy the experience and their food. If we were staying in town longer we would have eaten a couple more meals there because there were other items on the menu we really wanted to try.

Early dinner for a group of four was very pleasant. The service was good and the food tasty and served well. I thought it was quite expensive considering the portion sizes. Make a reservation.

A review for Foodies: This restaurant has been open for about a half a dozen years and I think they are just resting on their laurels. The biggest complaint we had was just the poor quality of the sea food. There was a head-on prawn in my seafood chowder that I almost gagged on, it was so rotten. There were... More
