I had the Maryland Crab Melt for lunch, it was terrible, the small portion of crab meat was minced not lump, crab was frozen not fresh and no flavor or seasoning. I always think to myself if a chief is going to name a dish "Maryland Crab" they are ether from Maryland like me or have been to Maryland to... More

Had an awesome business dinner there tonight with a large crowd. Service was great and the food was hot when it came out! I had the French onion soup which had lots of cheese and the green tomatoes were large and something great to share as an appetizer. The snapper special was really good. Only thing I would suggest is... More

Been eating regularly at Oscar's for over 4 years. Food and service was fabulous. Was the place to eat in Summerville. Food and service is still good, especially the she -crab soup. The last few visits, however, the quality of the food seems to be slipping. Used to rate it excellent, however lately I have to rate is as one... More

Had a delish dinner here of their really excellent She-Crab Soup, followed by delectable crunchy fried grits cakes, served over pulled pork. A GREAT Low Country Dinner!

The smoked Gouda Mac and Cheese is the best I've ever eaten. Hands down. I know a lot of southern restaurants have Mac and Cheese but the smoked Gouda version at Oscar's will make you want more and more. Everyone at the birthday celebration I attended there had great meals - pork chop, filet, wreck fish - all excellent. I... More

I first came to Oscars last August in anticipation of moving to Summerville. Then came again the following March. The food is pretty good; they have a nice menu, but overall the restaurant seems a bit tired. There could be a lot of charm, but my guess is that the restaurant has seen it's better days. It may be worthwhile... More

I stopped in for an early dinner on October 15th. This was the day after my 50th birthday. I was greeted warmly by the hostess and offered to sit wherever I wanted. I ordered the braised short ribs, the Gouda Mac and cheese and the garlic mashed potatoes. The favors were wonderful. If I would have had room I would... More

I unfortunately, had a bad experince here and haven't been back since. Was eating lunch there for the first time and saw an inch-worm crawling on the grapes i was eating. I realize something like this can happen in restaurants, but this told me that obviously the fruit hadn't been washed well. Also, when i mentioned to the waitress what... More

Great place. Lunch or dinner. Lunch buffet is awesome. Same menu in the bar and a little more laid back. Always ask for the specials they are amazing. Shrimp and grits are the best in Summerville
