Our hotel proprietor recommended Oscar's as THE place she goes to for a good meal, so we followed her advice. Oscar's has a restaurant area, sparsely decorated, and a cocktail lounge, which we did not visit because it sounded too noisy.

We ordered cocktails before dinner and the bartender didn't know how to make them until he consulted his bar book. Nice try but no cigar.

Our waitress was very attentive and helpful. She asked about our drinks and when we explained they needed more bitters, she went back to the bartender and brought us some to doctor our drinks.

On to dinner: I had a soup and salad combo, which was disappointing, but my partner enjoyed her Chinese Salad. Dinner with a cocktail each came up to $25.20, so not a bad value.

Unimaginative decor and cold air coming in around the windows made this an unsatisfactory experience, but the locals do seem to like it.

Oscar's has a nice atmosphere with antiques, an old building and a nice large menu. The service is good. It's a typical small town restaurant in its simplicity. It's quiet and a nice place to spend the dinner hour. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.

We had a steak and a captain's seafood plate, as well as salad, baked and mashed potatoes, and a rhubarb cherry pie. Everything was good and the service was good as well. Recommended.

We read about it in a guidebook called "Idaho, Off the Beaten Path," which said it was the best in town. We tried other places in Grangeville and determined that we agreed.
