Great "hometown" vibe

Love this place for great burgers sandwiches & awesome pizza. Grab a beer & some peanuts and watch the game while waiting for your delicious food to be ready. Locals have been enjoying The Oasis for years after sports (youth, adult or Stanford), after work, to watch a game with friends (or... read more

Fun, non-pretentious place. Just good food and drink. Service with a smile. Burgers and sandwiches are great. Try the Philly cheesesteak. One of the best west of the Mississippi.

Check your pretensions at the door at the Oasis. On your left are a couple of Stanford students out on a date. On your right a well known venture capitalist treating his teens to burgers and fries. This is where Stanford alums and locals hang out for solid burgers, great fries and a causal goodtime.

Came in late evening with no wait, you order/pay at the counter, separate counter to order beer. Lots of TV's for watching sports, pinball, some outdoor seating. We had burgers and Reuben's, both hit the spot. Pizza is also available. Nice college hangout, good for groups.

I have been going to this restaurant and bar for 54 years and look forward to another 54 years. The food is still as outstanding as it was in the '60s.

We have gone to The Oasis a number of times. My first trip was with a large family group which was quite fun. We have also gone as a couple. It is good for burgers and beer. They also have good pizza and sandwiches. Its a fun place and used to be a Stanford Legend and in some ways continues... More

Stanford Alums who have never been to the Dutch Goose, one mile west, overrate this place. Both are college spots with wooden booths, beer and burgers. We live between the two and prefer the DG hands down, as do our other local Alums. If you are into nostalgia, fine, but for better burgers, more menu, wine, larger space go to... More

Good food, a great sports atmosphere. Always a stop here when we get to town for a Stanford home game.

Practically grew up here -- burgers, bear, pizza, peanuts, carved wooden tables, sports on TV, pinball, outdoor patio. When childhood friends come back for a visit, it's always "OASIS!" Not the best food on the planet, but one of the best places.
