“Nice old restaurant”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

I last visited Omar's about 35+ years ago and it was like I stepped back in time. I think the decor is pretty much the same it was the last time, either that or it is in need of a bit of a redecorating.
But the food is what makes or breaks a restaurant and Omar's food is pretty good. The staff is very helpful selecting the meal of choice. My wife had the Halibut and she raved about it, so much that I never got a taste of it.
I had the Prime Rib and it was very good, it had a bit of Marble but that is what gives any meat its flavor, And it was cooked to what I asked for.

“A throwback to the 50s”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

Dark red leather booths, dark lighting, and a traditional menu and you almost expect the rat-pack to come waltzing in. This place has been around for forever and is a popular place with locals who don't want too much excitement and feel like they are eating the way their parents and grandparents did before them (and if they are locals, probably did since the interior hasn't been updated in decades). The food is good, if not inspired, and the quality is consistent.

“A retro 50's restaurant”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

A step back in time! the decor is 1950's. The seafood and steaks are wonderful. You create your own salad at your table. Highly recommend.

“An Ashland tradition”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

Omars lacks a little in atmosphere as it seems the inside of the building hasn't been updated for quite some time. But the tradition of great food and excellent service still reigns. Omars has survived for good reason..its a great place for a great dinner.

“Totally worth the walk”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

This restaurant is a little way out of downtown, but it's so worth the effort. It's about a half-hour walk from the theater, so make sure you plan ahead if you have a show (says the person who missed the first ten minutes!), but the steaks were cooked to perfection, the staff was friendly and helpful, and they had a really great retro steakhouse feel.
