While visiting my mom, we were looking for a "new" place to try. Little did we know that Oscar's Pier 83 was so close, AND had been around for 13 years! What a great surprise. There were three of us, and we tried a bit of everything. Fish taco (mahi mahi - and as good as the photos look), fried... More

First time to Pier 83. We were not disappointed. The 2-piece cod fish & chips and catfish with fries were both delicious. They have daily specials on the menu. We'll be back soon to try the calamari and other items.

Better to know what you would like to order before going. This is such a popular place that the ordering was so fast paced that there really was not enough time read the menu and everything looked so good. They do provide good customer service fairly fast and food delivered to the table. This is not a sit down leisurely... More

Our first visit. Had the clam strips, good but a little dark. Fish and chips: absolutely outstanding as was the calamari. The calamari was cut in "steak strips" ...crispy on the outside soft and tender on the inside....worth coming here just for the calamari. The "sauces" are "serve yourself"...cocktail, ketsup, sriracha etc. Order at the counter, served at the table.... More

We happened to go geocaching and saw this little gem. I am trying to diet and found there was so many good choices. I had the grilled salmon that was so tender that it just melted in your mouth. The coleslaw tastes just like KFC which, to me, is the holy grail of coleslaws. The cocktail sauce had a little... More

Had a hankering for fish and chips so found Oscar's Pier 83 and decided to stop by. Was immediately greeted with a smile and some suggestions on what is best on the menu. My friend and I chose the cod and sat down for the about 10 minute wait for it to be ready. Food was very good - fresh... More

Quick Friday night stop for fish and chips! We all had cod but many types of fish were available. It came with fries and coleslaw, all was very good but just a little greasy. My niece ordered hush puppies with hers and they were good! My sister had maui maui taco that she said was great. Not a bad little... More

Oscar's Pier 83 is focused on great seafood and a very friendly atmosphere. On my most recent visit, the customer ahead of me was unfamiliar with the menu and the numerous options for getting great fried fish. The attendant was very patient and friendly with him as he explained each of the options in detail. And that is part of... More

This place was quite a drive from Buckeye but definitely worth the drive. Next time we will bring our own eating utensils because that dinner was too good for plastic.
