Unwind in Ashland's 'Un-Play' Restaurant

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... read more

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.

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

What I remember most about my lunch was the stale iced tea that should have been refrigerated. My Mediterranean salad was nothing to brag about, but my husband really enjoyed his seafood risotto, one of the day's specialties. I was told it was known for its meat, but aside from hamburgers there really wasn't much meat on the menu aside... More

Omar's is a blast from the past, featuring all the staples of a 60's steak house missing only Sinatra on the Muzak in the background. But several nice touches including a novel salad presentation, and - high value here - no corkage on early weekday evenings, make it a bargain. A review of the menu shows a lot of fresh... More

I came here on a date with my husband and despite living in the valley for years we hadn't been to the restaurant side of this place. It is a funky little place with amazing food. I had a steak and it was perfection. The staff was friendly and the menu was vast. I'd highly recommend it!

Omar's sits at the junction of Lithia and Ashland Blvd, just at the south tip of Southern Oregon University. It's been in business since the 1950's, and in a town where restaurants open and close like a revolving door, that speaks volumes to the consistent quality of there product. Omar's has a strong local following, who eat lunch and dinner... More

Old time place that has been in business in that location for years. Food is great and prices reasonable. Service very good. Dining room is rather dark and appears not to have updated in ages but who cares if the food, steaks and service is great.

A friend and I dropped in for a quick meal on the way down I-5. Most of my experiences here have been at dinner, so the lunch as new for me. We both had the special, paprika beef, which was awesome. We cleaned our plates. This is one of Oregon's top restaurants.
