Much better than the the others

Oakwood is one of the better casual barbeque restaurants . Prices are good, service is excellent and the food is great. Don't expect to be blown over, but it's much better than other barbeque chains. What makes this place better is the service. The seating is fast, the servers are pleasant... read more

Oakwood has the most pleasant servers, fast and thorough - food has always been just what we expected. Big portions, and lots of good deals! Their hamburgers are the best, too! We go there a lot with friends and all of us have been happy.

Oakwood really has great BBQ. We moved here from Memphis several years back and really missed good BBQ until we found Oakwood.

The Tuesday special was a full slab for 14.49 with two sides. It was delicious, and there was enough for lunch the next day. We arrived at 5:30 and were seated immediately. By 6:30 folks were waiting in line.

At best, this chain, as an overall view, seems to have mediocre quality food. Have tried a few times, and just cant find anything that stands out. The price vs quality is slightly inflated. Also not keen on seeing dead animals on the walls when I'm trying to eat.

I have been purchasing Oakwood gift cards for friends and family for a while now, but had never actually tried it for myself. Best food. Best service (Chelsea is top notch!). Prices are acceptable. And portions are juuussst right! I put off trying Oakwood out of "loyalty" to a neighboring BBQ establishment, and now, these two don't even compare to... More

We had stopped by this place with a group of friends. As soon as we sat down the waitresses took our orders right away. The food came out very quickly. We all enjoyed our food. I had the smoked chicken dinner plate that comes with two sides. The chicken was cooked perfect. It had a very good flavor to it.... More

Since I don't cook for myself & usually don't like to eat alone in a restaurant, I get a hamburger to go. Yes, it is more expensive than "fast food" burgers, but you can't compare the quality! It is worth every penny to get one of these to take home! Usually ready quickly, even when crowded :) I have moved... More

Never bad food, never a poor waitress, never too expensive! Been going there since they opened (Eustis location only) and have always been happy with everything there. Especially the specials!

The Oakwood is a must on every trip here. The food is great, especially the ribs. The mahi is our second favorite. Our waitress, Chelsey, is the best waitress we've ever had at ANY restaurant. Always a smile on her face.
