Popular spot in a historic town just north of Charleston

Dinner on a Friday night can be a challenge, both for the restaurant and the diner. Oscar's Place has clearly had a lot of practice, because it handles a full seating over the length of service very well between both the kitchen and the front of the house. We were seated at our reserved time, and... read more

This place is awesome! The server was great and knowledgeable! The atmosphere was kind of romantic with the dim lightning but I saw families and friends dining as well. I would definitely recommend this place for all occasions. We made last minute reservations and they were able to accommodate us. My husband and I both and shrimp and grits. I... More

Oscar's is a quaint and tasty find in Summerville. The venue is rustic and comfortable and the food is very good, especially enjoyed the Ville burger and BBQ sandwich special. The onion rings were great. The staff is warm and friendly - we will return to try more entree!

You know you are in the genteel South when you are shown to your table by a mature server and treated with great respect. The lights were low. We had fried oysters that were hot and crispy and the red seafood sauce was excellent.

If you and the spouse, or you and the family, or you and friends are looking for a nice "white table cloth" place to go for dinner, I would highly recommend Oscar's Place. We have been going there for years and the food and service always remains the same (which is GREAT!) Check it out!

Upon pulling into the parking lot I figured we had chosen a good place. Packed! Had lunch with another couple and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. My wife had the Salad Trio (Shrimp Salad, Mixed Greens Salad, Fresh Fruit Salad & Choice of Dressing $11) When she completely finishes a meal, it must be good. I had the Hot Turkey... More

Well first off, if you are looking for seafood this is not the place. We stopped at Oscar's due to the excellent review on Trip Advisors for a seafood restaurant. They did not have that great of a selection to start with. The one thing I wanted to try came wrapped in bacon, when I asked if I could get... More

I came here on Thursday night. It was my first visit. Our waiter was outstanding. I started with the gator bites and they were great. Then I went with a salad with blue cheese dressing. This was really the only disappointment of the night. It was some of the worst tasting and most watered down dressing that I’ve ever had... More

We went as a group and over 6 folks we had to offer off a 4 item menu and no exceptions could be made, None of which were vegetarian friendly, Also asked about seafood allergies and no accommodations there as well. Was not impressed either by the small portions for the price.

Especially, since the service you described does not match our policies. We aim to be extremely accommodating. We offer limited menus to parties of 20 guests or more, but definitely not to... More
