Oscars doesn't look like much but the food is terrific. Oscar uses great ingredients and makes his sauces from scratch. I love his seafood fra diablo and his pasta bolognese. Great flavors and perfectly cooked pasta. Enormous portion--always enough to have a second meal at home. Make sure to try it.

Went in after church on a Sunday. Not too busy, but a good crowd. Food took a long time. My Ruben was dry, so I asked for more dressing. My wife's patty melt had basically raw red onions that included the tough outer skin. They were not edible, so she asked for new sautéed onions, which is they way the... More

I had been here years ago when it was just a deli and from the outside it looks the same. However when you go in there are a number of tables in a restaurant style area. The food was very good and the waitress excellent and friendly. Pricing was reasonable. They also serve lunch and dinner.

Food here is fresh, tasty and plentiful. Oscar has a specilal talent for cooking fish. His fish and chips are amazing. Eggplant parm is a family favorite.

Just had the worst breakfast experience at this local restaurant. When we arrived there were 3 tables seated and 2 of them had their food. We placed our order. Three more tables arrived and out of those 2 got their food before us. 37 minutes later we received our food. Simple dishes - eggs, kids pancakes, and omelet. Everything but... More

There aren't many choices for breakfast in this small, rural town so it is nice to find a place that makes you want to return. Service starts with a smile with a quick offer of fresh hot coffee and the menu. A nice choice of breakfast basics that doesn't overpower you with too many selections. Everything is cooked as ordered... More

This milk was not just sour it was rancid! As we were completing appetizers, son got sick from milk. Took all food home... More

I have been to Oscars three times in the last few weeks. The food is great, saute dishes cooked to perfection, and large portions. Wait staff, very friendly and fast. Breakfast was wonderful. Will go there, all the time now. Califon needed a restaurant like this.

Passing through Califon I wanted breakfast and spotted Oscar's in a small mall on the main road. Narrow frontage, you could miss it easily, looks more like a small store. Friendly waitress, quick service. I ordered my standard western omlette; it was served with very good home-fries and toast, everything cooked just right and delivered with a smile and a... More
