Went to visit my favorite Aunt and took her out for dinner to Oscars Bar and Grill. The service and staff were excellent and the food was yummy with great choice. The lovely lady with blonde hair looked after us so well. I will definitely be back and would recommend this place to everyone!

Food is great excellent choice , fantastic atmosphere well catered for children , good child's menu ...there is a children's indoor play area , a bit on the small side but it is a restaurant so children are only in it for short periods of time ....definitely recommend for a family meal out

Had our work's Christmas lunch here. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was good. Service was good and atmosphere was great. We were even happy to share our Santa with some children who were eating with their families through in the bar. Happy to go again next year.

This is the third year that two of my friends and myself have had the Hogmanay meal. The previous two years meals were very good, however this year the food was ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING. The taste, presentation, temperature and quantity were SECOND TO NONE. Compliments to the chef. The only down side of the evening was we felt the DJ did... More

Thank you Margaret for taking the time to review your Hogmany experience. The whole team worked exceptionally hard to ensure our guests enjoyed brilliant food and service and this was reflected on the customer comments on the night- and indeed since then. I have passed your comments to Mark and have to say you made him blush, which is unusual,... More

If I could mark this zero stars I would. 6 of us booked into oscars for a meal before heading to a concert. My partner and I ordered pizza. The service was tedious to say the least. A raw pizza was eventually delivered to our table. We complained and the waitress apologised and we were assured that we would get... More

Whilst we are sorry, that the pizza was not to your liking; we would point out that there were five other people in your party who ate and apparently enjoyed their main courses. As always when a dish is not to the liking of a guest we cooked a replacement which having been cooked (as all our pizzas are) on... More

The menu selection is great and there is loads to choose from so at first it was looking good, we were shown to our table quickly and were given our drinks not long after. My partner ordered a burger and I ordered fajitas. The burger was not a normal beef burger and was full of large diced onions, as someone... More

Thank you for your review Amy We would have hoped that you could raise any issue with the duty manager and have it resolved on site.

Catered for our staff night, good quick service, for mass serving food was good and we were able to get the whole place to ourselves which was great. Drink a little bit pricey

We booked the back room for a Birthday meal, party of 28 it's a good job we had decent company as that's about the only decent thing we had that day. Meals were cold, drinks served in dirty glasses, cutlery not cleaned properly. I notice the recent revamp but won't be giving Oscars Bar and Grill a second visit.
