We rang to book our table at Oscars while en route and were told there were no tables until 2100hrs, this was unfortunate as it was only 1845 and we were nearly there! Took a chance on dropping in and hoping for the best and there was a table available. The service was very good, our waitress was helpful and informative. The atmosphere was great, a nice mood about the place. Food was good, my daughter absolutely loved her pizza. I would recommend that the restaurant improve their salad accompaniment. I feel that in most restaurants it is seen as acceptable to throw a few bits of whatever is lying around onto a plate and call it a 'salad'. Restaurants could take some tips from the American or Italian style in this regard, where salad is seen as a major part of the meal not an afterthought. Overall our experience was quite good apart from my above criticism and that fact that we felt the menu overpriced. Would return and perhaps my comments will have been acted upon!! (you never know!!)

As another reviewer has noted Oscar's is consistently average. This sense of averageness is heightened by the total inability to change the menu, ever, in as long as it has been in operation!! Also not highly recommended if you enjoy perusing a varied wine menu; it is only just possible to get an average bottle! Oscar's please change your menu's to reflect the fact that it is 2010 and people's tastes have evolved somewhat since you opened your doors in the 90's.

Oscars has been around for god knows how long and i have yet to be in there when it hasn't been full but it is by no means a top class restaurant, i would say everything about it is average but it is consistently average, the main problem is that the menu has not changed in a long number of years and there is not many other restaurants in the town that rival it so in a sense its safe enough to continue along without much change,some dishes are very nice but some dishes are borderline fast food quality, the staff are very friendly and the food is normally externally quick (apart from last time we were there where we waited 35 minutes for mains). Oscars will most certainly overwhelm anyone but it is a safe bet for a nice dinner. They could be cheaper but their early bird menu is reasonable.

We ate here while staying down in Mullingar for a few days, after it was recommended to us by a friend from Mullingar. I have to say it didn't disappoint. Food was lovely. Staff were very friendly and professional. The manager even came over to chat to us for a few minutes while we waited for our starters. The only thing I regret is that we didn't get to try any of the desserts which looked lovely, because we were all so full after our starters and main. The meal although not cheap, was very good value as we enjoyed it so much. If you are going to Oscars, I wuld recommend booking ahead. As although we went on a Wednesday evening, the place was packed and we had to book a table for an hours time. Although it was well worth the wait.
