Reviews

This was one of the best dining experiences I can recall. We had a party of 7 including two younger children. The staff were super friendly and the chef spent extra time with us to ensure that boys had food they loved. The menu was accommodating to all of our diverse tastes. This is a special place that we cannot wait to go back to.

I have eaten dinner here about 6 times now and I have not had anything but great experiences each time. My favorite dish is the stuffed salmon, my husband loves the prime rib and the steaks. My mom is in love with the seafood risotto and my young sons share the OP's shrimp pasta or the stuffed salmon. We usually order either smoked f ... read more

So many good things to choose from . The food is excellent from the steak to the prime rib to the stuffed salmon. If you want gourmet food Oscar Penns is the place.

A return visit with some friends for their first visit. The smoked prime rib, a weekend special, is a great twist on an old favorite. The service by Jayme was better than anyone would expect; definitely not her first day on the job. The setting is in an historic house set under some giant oak trees just off downtown Inverness. You wi ... read more

Our second visit to Oscar Penn's leading to many more. The restaurant is located just off of downtown Inverness in the McLeod House, a quaint old home in a picturesque setting under large oak trees. Three of us had the smoked prime rib, a weekend special, and one had the venison meat loaf, very enjoyable for all. The servings are lar ... read more

What a great experience at this quaint little gem in Inverness! In a time where restaurants are struggling to find good help, I’d say the staff here hits all the marks.

Service was excellent! We all ordered different items on the menu all cooked to perfection but the Delmonico steak was medium not medium rare. The flavor was very good the steak was tender.

We have visited this restaurant twice and we have been very pleased with the selection of food, that we chose. We have had the same waitress and she is very efficient and is very pleasant.

My husband and I had dinner on the patio at Oscar Penn’s. The atmosphere was charming. Guitar music was a nice touch. The service was excellent. The owner came out to check on all the guests. Most important was the food. We had crab cakes, stuffed salmon, sautéed spinach. Everything was delicious. It was a perfect evening.
