Went here for the 1st time feb. 15th. There was about a ten minute wait but it was well worth it!! We all got the haystacks but 3 different kinds and they were amazing and I highly recommend them!! I will be returning in the near future fore sure!! The owner is very personable too which I love to see!

Excellent customer service and a great breakfast. I had the haystack and it was very filling and tasted great. I will be back.

I have passed this place many times and never thought to stop in. I’m glad I finally did! We ate here when staying at the Outing Lodge. I chose this place based on Yelp reviews. I was not disappointed. The place isn’t very fancy, but the food was delicious with good sized portions and very reasonable prices! I had the new Parmesan Burger. I was told they are redoing their menu and this was a new item. Well I sure hope they keep it on! I want to go back and try their breakfast I read about.

I can’t believe I’ve lived in Hudson all my life and never made it here before. What a true gem and true step back into the good old days.
One would expect at a greasy spoon to get decent-esque at best; River Oasis gives the cream off the top for sure. My steak and eggs were easily the best I’ve had that my mum didn’t make me.
I was also enchanted to meet one their regulars, a sweet old man that I hope to see again soon. Nothing better than great food, a chat with a stranger, and a full belly and heart when you leave.
I am excited to eat my way through the menu for the rest of my life (because honestly, there’s a reason this place has been around for decades and I’m sure it can only get better with age.)

This place is wonderful. Stop in and see Craig, the owner/dishwasher. You can get a cup of coffee in an experienced mug, have a talk with one of 3 “Flo’s” and end up with a great breakfast. I recommend the haystack.
Also, follow them on Facebook!
Plus, if you get served coffee in the “hug mug”, you’ll leave with a squeeze.

I love not only the food… I love the atmosphere (totally a 70’s cafe?), the servers, and the owner! (I think the guy that walks around greeting people and making sure their food is great… Most likely the owner?) Anywho, I’d have to agree with the first review. It’s a bunch of townies (mostly senior citizens), they kind of stare at you (especially if you’re Asian haha) but the servers, and owner make you feel very welcomed. Don’t let the cooks deceive you. (Younger tattooed guys) They can throw it down! The bread is bakery quality (the wheat is awesome!) Abundant menu… Order breakfast anytime… The owner walks around constantly while there, and checks in from time to time during your meal. It’s located right along the St. Croix River. I just recently went here this past weekend. The owner gave me a mug of coffee, and the mug said, “BIG HUG MUG”. He said before my boyfriend and I leave, we must give eachother a huge hug! We laughed. After we paid, he sure made us do it. Right as we stood up after paying, he called us out from the kitchen and made us do it! 🙂 A great place to go. Definitely my favorite breakfast/dinner joint. Some good ol’ American soul food! 🙂
It’s a MUST DO if your within 50 miles of it ! We had breakfast and also watched other orders coming out , they give you a plate FULL of food and ours was very good .
They have a few of their own specialty items that looked good , staff was friendly but busy !
Its a retro 50/60s diner and original , we’ll definitely b back ! !

Stopped in after 20 years of driving past it. I wish I would have stopped sooner. Absolutely the juciest and best tasting burger I have ever had hands down! I highly recommend you eat at this place. Not only is the food good the employees all get along and you can tell they love to work there which adds to the relaxed environment inside. Personally I recommend the Jack Daniels Western Burger!

This is a must stop place for my family when we visit Minnesota. My in-laws are regulars here and we always hit the Oasis for breakfast at least a few times when we are up for the holidays.
The owner is a real nice guy, and he turns out some quality food. The haystacks are awesome and large in size. The sandwiches are also top notch. The Hangover Sandwich is spectacular and it’s a monster in size. You really don’t need a side with it… just the sandwich will hold you over till lunch easily.
They have good lunch and stuff as well, but I have only had the burger (shocking, I know). The burger is good for sure, but it’s the breakfast that keeps us coming back. Needless to say, if you’re in Stillwater and you are hungry, the Oasis is one of the best options in town.

Amazing burgers! Definitely go here if your hungover and starving like I was when I walked into this place. The food is awesome and the burgers are exceptional
