Great service Good food

Oscars is a fixture in Summerville, has been for many years. It's a quiet dimly lit eatery. The service has always been between good and outstanding. The food is traditional American fare. My Manhattans have been well mixed and delicious. There is a tavern side and a more formal dining area. I have... read more

Made reservations for 6 for a birthday party and got seated in porch off bar ! Not the dining room, it was SO noisy, it was like a sports bar. We had hoped for a fine dining experience. Two members of our group ordered the prime rib, it was overcooked and full of gristle. They chose not to reorder. It... More

When we took your reservation, we looked forward to pleasing you as we do all our quests. Since we are a restaurant that offers 4 dining rooms and... More

My wife & I celebrated our 49th wedding anniversary by dining at Oscar's. We had not been there in at least 15 years, but we just didn't want the hassle of driving to Charleston for an elegant meal. We were seated at a nice table when our server "Gene" came to welcome us. He explained the "specials" to us. We... More

My company reserved for 20 people. We were located in a separate area so we could be a little louder and not disturb the other patrons. Oscar's assigned a server and he did an excellent job taking care of our group. We sampled many of the appetizers and they were all great. I heard no complaints about anyone's meal. Though... More

This is my sisters FAVORITE restaurant and I had never been. I live in the area but just never tried it. Well my baby sister and her then fiancé had their dinner before the wedding here. We pulled in and it was so busy that they had people assisting with parking. That was nice as the parking lot is small... More

Business Dinner with client and spouse. Dissatisfaction to the highest degree. Server: Overall doing a good job. Atmosphere : Booths are extremely uncomfortable. Cushions are basically worn out. Noise Level : Unbearable, Large family with what must have been a grandchild, that screamed and carried on all evening. Extremely aggravating, whereas couldn't even carry on a conversation with guests. Didn't... More

I had dinner there and it was memorable. My waitress was great with superb recommendations and very thoughtful hospitality (Loretta). The ambience was beautiful and the food was the best I had in a long time. I had the mushrooms with melted cheese for appetizer, the shrimps and grits for entree and the caramel xengo for dessert. Everything was done... More
