Had lunch here on a Sunday. Pride of ownership obvious in this pub. Cozy, comfortable, clean. Fun music on the jukebox and friendly, attentive service.

Had the nachos to share which were pretty good. I had the Big O burger which is their signature and it did not disappoint. Juicy with perfectly melted cheeses and a lighter than air bun. Came with fries which were also very tasty. The chicken sandwich and regular burger were also very good.
Some of the appetizers like the chicken tenders and quesadilla could also be a light meal. Not a huge menu, but all the selections looked interesting.

Good on tap beer selection and the bloody Mary looked mighty fine at a neighboring table. So, needless to say, we will be back to dine some more when in town.

We recently planned on going to a pub where wonderful burgers are served but decided against it because they were packed and we had tickets to a Brewer's game later that evening. We recalled our friend telling us to try Oscar's and try it we did. The burgers are outstanding! The meat was flavorful, the toppings fresh and the buns were better than average. The owner usually checks to see how your meal is and the wait staff is friendly and competent. They serve a fish fry on Fridays which is very good. The prices are very reasonable, drinks are great and you will leave satisfied. We have taken visiting friends there and they weren't disappointed,even leaving with a doggie bag.Truly a laid back, enjoyable experience!

We stopped in for a late afternoon cocktail and shared a hamburger, as we had missed lunch that day. The bartender was friendly to these out-of-towners and had a nice conversation about Milwaukee with us. The burger and fries were very good, and there's a nice selection of beer as well. Nothing knocked our socks off, but a great neighborhood bar with solid pub food.

the reviews were so good,and being from out of town,we decided to give it a try.It was a tough night because they had a big crowd and we were told couldn't order food for at least an hour;we stayed and had some beers and of course tried the bloody mary.It lived up to the hype and if you go order the bloody mary;It's worth it! It's a simple menu,done well; the sweet potato appetizer was delicious with the drinks and the burgers were great.It's pub food done well.Prices were fair and I must say the staff did a great job.We would recommend

I absolutely love a good burger from Oscar's! The buns are awesome and the burgers are huge. While the Big Gringo and Big Hongo are both delicious, my personal favorite is to have the Classic Cheeseburger with fried onions and jalepenos. They just recently expanded the deck out back which is perfect on a great summer day with decent views of the city across the valley.
