Really friendly staff and excellent food. We enjoyed as a family a great meal here. They really take care of guests as professional hosts. Rest assured this is the number one place to eat and drink in Kelso.

Oscars is fairly close to where I live and I used to eat there quite often. I haven't visited for a couple of years, but found it convenient to book for a busy Saturday night to meet an old friend who had just moved into the area. On arrival I was shown to our table and the sat there for... More

The only place to eat steak in Kelso and a fantastic halibut dish tonight with the most delicious key lime pie for dessert. Whole heartedly recommend this great local restaurant for food service and wine, well done guys!

Intended to eat in Oscars,as we had enjoyed our meal last time,but was sad to see it was only open at the end of the week,so presumably not busy enough to warrant opening all week.athere were several tourists about reading the menu,but most were only in Kelso for one or two nights,so they too would be disappointed.
