    It was a nice effort for a valentines experience. The room was a little small for the electric band and drums. Our waitress was very pleasant and attentive to serve. the food came out pretty quickly but the courses flowed too quickly to complete. Had to hold the one and eat when the next came out fast. The main course was cool when we were able to finish the soup course. Once the salad was first served the rest piled on pretty fast. We appreciated the effort for a special event. We have never dined there on a regular basis so no day to day comparison. Circumstances may be driving this review.

    The server was nice, but he brought our soup and salad, then the entree all within minutes of each other. There was not enough room to put the plates. He then forgot to get our payment. We had to flag him down

    Absolutely hated the band. They can't sing, way to loud, music selection was awfull. Our table was right behind a speaker and couldn't even talk to the other couple with us. Asked to be moved, but couldn't be moved due to other reservations. Food and waitress were excellent. We ask every year for the same waitress, she is a great waitress , Kendall Patterson. Won't be back next year if the same band is there. Almost ruined the romantic evening , but they finally quit playing for the rest of the evening

    It was a refreshing change of pace to chain locations. Food was ample and tasty, service was very good and server was courteous and inviting. Jazz music in the background was also a great touch. It was also great to be able to make a dinner reservation as opposed to wait in line scenario. Great place to dine with spouse or significant other or couples.

    Filet was excellent, do not recommend the prime rib as it was very tough and chewy. Overall nice Valentines Day dinner.

    It was a great atmosphere and nicely decorated for Valentine’s Day. We ordered Prime Rib, we were disappointed, could barely cut it with a knife, hard to chew. Our waitress got pulled to work the bar, so there was a time we didn’t really have service. The music was so loud we couldn’t hold conversation. But in saying all of this,, we understand that most places are working severely understaffed. Maybe next special occasion they should be a little better prepared. Will we give them another try? Yes, but maybe on a normal evening.

    We had a very good time and meal. Seemed like last years meal was hotter and this year it wasn't really too hot. The soup didn't have steam coming off it and could've been drank with no burn. Not that you want burnt but with the food was a little hotter. Something didn't agree with me or my gf both of our bellies are tore up.

    Enjoyable experience. I messed up with my online reservation. But the manager was very courteous and got us a table ready very quickly. We appreciated that a lot. Very good waiter!

    Excellent place for a quiet dinner with old friends. Salads were fresh and crisp, served with soft rolls. Pork chop is always very good and juicy, mahi-mahi was a large piece—nicely prepared with a sweet chili glaze, the pot roast looked tasty, baked potatoes were not hot, but not called to the attention of the server. Waitress was prompt and patient with our group who was in no hurry to leave. Pleasant evening.

    Oscar's restaurant was under construction or just closed down and we were celebrating an anniversary not notifying us as to having us to sit in the bar area with racing people, kids, and general lower atmosphere with six or so TV's blaring for a celebration. Did try to separate us with a " reserved table " in the corner but as people came in, we got joined in our area. Service was very good and food was better than most hotel foods. I am just sorry that they did not give us heads up to the construction as we gave them in advance notice about our celebration and Oscar"s was recommended to us as a better place in Portsmouth to dine.

    Once again, Oscar's did not disappoint. Service was efficient and the pace was appropriate, even with a large group in the same dining area. Worth the drive from an hour away ... we'll be back!

    Very excellent surprise in dining! Didn’t even know about Oscar’s though living not that far away in the Ashland area. One of the best hotel restaurants we’ve dined in recently, other than high-end resorts. Nice menu selection; my wife’s honey-drizzled fried chicken alone will earn a repeat visit! Excellent service despite having a wedding reception event, another group too, plus prom-goers. Jeannie was a superb waitress.

    Overall the experience was the best I've had lately. Food, service very peaceful and a very nice setting. Price comparison is spot on with your Roadhouses but the service is over the top.

    We were sat by 2 couples with small children who screamed and cried. The food was good and Terry, our server was the best part. It was hard to enjoy the food because of the noise. I noticed there was a large party in the bar area with small children. Possibly they could have sat them there.

    We went for Valentine’s Day unaware of their special. The food was excellent! We walked away with a personalized wine bottle and rose. Had a great time.
