Excellent food! Enjoyed the experience. Just wish there were mixed drinks. They do have nice wines and beer, though.

This place has amazing food. And Jason is a great guy! Best upscale food in town.
Wesley Shull via - Jan 17, 2022
Not just the best restaurant in Citrus County, but comparable to some of the best restaurants in the country. We loved that the owner checked in with each table to ensure everything was perfect. Highly recommend the Delmonico steak, ceviche, and stone crab sushi!

John Shore via - Dec 30, 2021
Oscar Penns is hands down one of my absolute favorite restaurants in Citrus County. The food is out of this world, especially the filet steak! What gets me the most is the attention to detail and how the owner/ servers go above and beyond to make it the best experience possible. Iv never had a poor meal here, not only is the atmosphe ... read more

Great little restaurant with very good food , the owner will stop by your table and talk to you and the staff are very good ..

This was one of the best dining experiences I can recall. We had a party of 7 including two younger children.

This is a special place that we cannot wait to go back to.

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.
