I am a Pittsburgher transplanted to NC. My sister sent me a write-up about Oscar's that was in the Pittsburgh paper. I went online to find the directions as we would be in MB for the week-end. First of all....the actual Oscar's did not look like the picture on the internet. It was not Black and Gold on the outside with Steeler logos. Inside there was a great deal of Steeler memorabilia along with Mickey Mouse and other collectables. We ordered the Steak and Cheese which was very good and the price was fair. French fries were delicious....hand cut and a very large portion. Our server was not friendly and it was not busy maybe because we arrived late in the evening. I asked about the bread because the newspaper article said that the owner of Oscar's made monthly trips to Pittsburgh to get Mancini's bread for his business. The waitress did not know anything about the bread. I asked the bartender....who was friendly and knowledgeable. She said the owner died several years ago and his wife was running Oscar's now. She said the owner did go to pick-up the bread at one time but they make it there now. I was disappointed because I was looking forward to a sandwich on Mancini's bread. I saw a large picture on the wall of the owner that is now deceased. I could see where he would have had that place jumping but not now. It may be more exciting in the daytime but the night was dead. There are more TV screens than I could count. The food was good and portions very generous. Price is fair. Service not good except for the bar-tender. Seat yourself. It was not what I anticipated. But if it's a sports bar/pub you are looking for this place has good food and drinks. I could see where it used to be a Steeler Bar but except what you see on the walls and on the bar that is as much Steeler as you will get. Very dark. I included the website that shows what it must have looked like when the owner was alive...and that was what I had expected to see when I got down there. The outside does not have a trace of Steeler!
