Oscars is worth a special trip! We had breakfast. Our family had pancakes, biscuits and gravy, an omelette, and coffee. All was seriously SO good. The biscuits are fresh and the omelettes are so fluffy. Our waitress, Jenny, was so sweet to our kids and...did a fabulous job. We pass through Jeff City often and we will be back!More

When visiting family in Jeff City, we made a stop at Oscar's. Our multiple visits there over the years have proven them be be consistent in their food and service. For fast service, good food and a fun decor, this is the place to go.

Best breakfast hands down! We visited Oscars by chance and it did not disappoint. Was the best breakfast we had the entire trip and we ate out a lot! If we are ever that way again we will definitely visit again!

While reading the menu, I noticed that the Country Benedicts were "Irresistible". I told the waitress that since I couldn't resist, I would order the Country Benedicts. They really were irresistible. No Canadian bacon, but a very nice sausage with a strong flavor that was...a compliment to the excellent Hollandaise sauce. Yes, I'd order it again. Our server was Melissa (Zoom Zoom). She was very professional and charming.More

Ate breakfast here. Portions were generous and the food was very good. I usually don't like restaurant biscuits and gravy but these were perfect. Great atmosphere with fun decorations.

Wait service was very and wearing mask. We sat and ordered. The Restaurant was empty. Another couple came in and the waitress sat them right behind us. Then our food came. Wife had Turkey wrap and I had fish and chips. Both were very good...and plenty of food. As we were eating a group of four comes in and the wait staff sat them at the table right next to us. We were with in a four foot of other people for over 15 mins. This is not social distancing. The restaurant was empty and no reason for everyone sitting next to each other. So be careful. The cooks and table buster were not wearing mask.More

The breakfast's are great. Dinner, hubby likes the chicken fried steak with white gravy. I love the catfish. Burgers are great and I love to sit and look at the walls with all the 60's and probably earlier, photos of movie stars and singers. Love...the place!More

Food was great and service was fantastic. Reasonably priced with generous portions. Bacon cheeseburger was excellent.

To be honest, I really wasn’t expecting much from this place. If you get here around 7 am on Sunday, place isn’t packed. I ordered the biscuits and gravy deluxe with coffee and water. To my surprise, it was done really quickly. I asked for...onions and jalapeños. Wish they added more jalapeños but not bad all in all. The only grip I have is the coffee. The first cup wasn’t hot and very weak. The second was a lot hotter and a little stronger. If they could make it stronger, I’d come every morning on my days off.More

Location is a little hard to find but saw that the locals knew well. Had the country fried steak meal includes two veg and a very good dinner roll for less that $10. Specials are offered during week and prime rib was the Saturday night...offering when I visited. Do not believe alcohol is served. Open for breakfast-lunch-dinner.More
