While the decor of plastic flowers isn't the best in the world, the food is great and the service is top notch! We visited on a Friday and one of the specials was a sweet potato waffle. It was delicious & very big so there was no way I could eat it all! Our server was extremely attentive and didn't... More

We went to this restaurant twice, once for breakfast and once for lunch. The breakfast was horrendous, but the place was busy and is in such a good location that we thought we'd give it a second chance. It was just as awful for lunch. I don't know how people can rave about this place. It is worse than the... More

If you want some good food -- generous portions at that -- go to the Black Oak Restaurant. A lot of people have made it a regular watering hole. The staff is congenial and friendly-- and the service is personal. You are made to feel welcome and at home. The prices are reasonable - variety of selections excellent. It is... More

This place is only open for breakfast and lunch. It has been a staple in this area for years. The place is clean, the staff is friendly, and the food is good.

Because Mother's Day is one of the busiest days in the restaurant industry, I have not particularly enjoyed dining out on this holiday. I have had past experiences with long waits, slow service and less than fantastic food. However, we have always enjoyed our visits to Black Oak, so I chose to come here for my celebratory brunch. I was... More

My Mom and I have eaten here a few times. This is an older, well-established place that has been here for about 50 years, as we learned. My Mom and I agreed that this is the kind of restaurant that probably appeals more to women than to men. It is loaded with tons of silk flowers and knick-knacks and cute... More

I've been eating at the BOR since it open in 1970. Always GREAT food and service! Linda & Jessie have really done a super job with the restaurant in the past few years. Thanks for the great food and service over the last 44 years.

The menu has a lot of options which is very good with my eating requirements. The staff was friendly and very helpful in making sure I didn't get food that I'm not supposed to eat. A fun place to eat. Very large and although there were a lot of customers the size made for quick service.

Good service, handles larger groups. Friendly place. Bacon not so good, hard and burnt taste. I like crisp but not dead. Great omelets. Good coffee
