Good restaurant but not great

Visited for dinner because of the great TA reviews. Found the staff excellent and very attentive but thought the food was very average. There are too many restaurants in the area with excellent food to settle for average.

Passing through town, not sure where to eat. The hotel suggested Oscars and we were not disappointed. Service was great. The food was excellent and they were very accomodating( broiling rather than frying, etched). Gouda Mac and cheese was terrific. Looks like a small portion, but it is so rich you cannot eat more. The smoked Gouda taste comes through.... More

Our family visited Oscar's for the first time. We each had a nice meal including but not limited to the Chicken Delight Salad, She Crab soup, Turkey Croissant, and the Cajun Burger. I did think the salad could have been bigger. The She Crab soup was very good. The crowd was mainly retirees and the décor is utilizing its old... More

Locally this restaurant is very popular with the business crowd and retirees. While the food is pretty good, it is nothing great and everything is overpriced. However the desserts are worth the trip. It used to be the only fancy white tablecloth restaurant in Summerville so it soaked up all that attention. But it has never changed anything over the... More

Always a great meal at Oscars. The best shrimp and grits in the Lowcountry.Family owned business, not a corporate chain.

Simply the best food in Summerville. Like fish tacos? How about pulled pork tacos? The salsas with these are quite unique... My son said the fish tacos reminded him of being in the Carrbean. The clam chowder, at last Fridays buffet, was as good as I had when I lived in Newport, RI. Although the selections at the weekday lunch... More

Oscar's is a great place to go for a nice dinner. The food is fantastic and the service is great. The parking lot is hit or miss on if you are going to get a spot due to the happy hour specials.

Once in Summerville, I would highly recommend dining at Oscars. Its an outstanding restaurant with great atmosphere, superb service and excellent food. I would highly recommend their French onion soup and their seared salmon dish. I have dined their about 5 times and have never left displeased.

Dined at Oscar's for Dinner with no reservation, had about a 15 minute wait, not bad. We ordered drinks and listened to the menu items from our server, Kelly. She was great, liked to chat with us about the food, and was very attentive. We both ordered salads, and our entrees, Mine, the seafood duo, and my husband, the short... More

It is wonderful to not have to travel downtown for fine dining. Excellent service by our server gene, my shrimp and grits were spicy and delicious. My wife was taken here for her birthday and she loved it. We will eat here again and again.
