Great breakfast. Could have split an entree. That would have saved room for a cinnamon roll. They looked fabulous. No one would give us a bite. Definitely would go back.

We stopped here because of the TA reviews. There are way too many choices for breakfast! I decided to do the Verde Mess and it was delicious. My wife did the bacon/avocado omlete. If you are really hungry, attempt the cinnamon roll. Ask for the...More

Meh. Decent food, but overpriced for what it is. I understand that there are raves over breakfast, so maybe that's why I. Was underwhelmed. We ate lunch there, and I got a burger. The bun was good but the meat was dry. The seasoned fries...More

Oscar's is worth the usual wait. The French toast platter and the pancakes are great! The patty melt was cooked rare, just like I ordered it. Prices are a little bit high, but the portions are huge!

So sorry your experience at Oscar's was not what you expected; like going to Del Frisco's, Morton's, and other top end places, sometimes things just don't mesh. Could have caught them on a bad day (although they were busy... More
