The food was very good, and the service was attentive. We both liked the personal salad bar. My wife had the calamari steak, and I had the seafood pasta. The sauce was fresh and full of flavor. As other comments state, the atmosphere is out of another era but the food surprises.

Ghetto bar. Horrible service. Useless employees. Reminds me of an old dirty sailor bar at the beach.

We went to Omar's while we were in Ashland to see a play or two, and got there about an hour before it closed. We were served skunky beer with our dinner, and although the dinner was generally acceptable, it was not at all as good as we expected something from Omar's to be. The salad, for instance, looked as... More

A cross between a dive bar and a diner, first impressions create puzzled expectations. But the food is good fresh and well cooked. Portions are sensible sizes and prices extremely reasonable. Worth going back to.

We eat here on every one of our tips. Monday and Tuesday there is no corkage fee so BYOB is great. The steaks are fantastic, and the appetizers are delicious , especially the zucchini fingers. Has been here since '40s and atmosphere is the same. Friendly wait staff.

We had steelhead and halibut and it was perfectly cooked. The salad was displayed nicely and the waiters were very nice. I would definitely go again. This place has been around for a long time and continues to succeed.

Lots of atmosphere; I liked my fish dish which was special for that evening; my husband was less than thrilled with his. But there was a downpour, we were drenched and exhausted, and Omar's was across the street from our motel, so we were thankful that we were there. Good service.

Omar's has quality food, an interesting menu, and a relaxed atmosphere. Located away from the Oregon Shakespeare Festival center, this restaurant is 1 1/2 miles from downtown Ashland, next door to the Southern Oregon College campus. I go to the festival regularly and if I don't have a play I make time to have an unrushed dinner at Omar's. The... More

As everyone seems to agree, Omar's provides nostalgia. It feels like the place parents of SOU students take their children when they are in town. Don't be fooled; this is excellent food. No other Ashland restaurant offers this quality of seafood and a variety of seafood preparations, (The Wharf in Medford qualifies.) It changes every night, but the Tuscan stew... More

This review is just for the bar portion of the restaurant; it's been over 20 years since I've eaten there besides the bar food but the food was great back then. I'm reviewing the bar because it's been the best place in town to grab a cheap pint for decades and I'm happy to say that's still true. The bartenders... More
