Stanford University Sports Pub Hangout with good burgers and sandwiches

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.

A down-home local establishment with a great atmosphere and delicious bar food! What more can one ask for?! Our favorite local hang out! Try a pitcher of Sculpin IPA and some salty shelled peanuts and unwind after work!

This place is just a classic for a dinner with friends. The place has a unique character, not exactly a romantic place...

Good spot for buffalo chicken wings - true Buffalo, NY style. Crispy, but tender, hot with blue cheese - best I've found outside of NY. The other dishes are mediocre. The pizza seems popular, but then again, not East Coast quality. Nice outdoor patio seating with plenty of sports on hand in large flat screen format. A regular for locals... More
