Oakwood Smokehouse is well known in this area as the place to go for Baby Back ribs, or any Bar B Que. Ribs, pork, turkey, you name, all foods cooked and served to perfection. Great value also, good sized portions for your money ! Seems we always take some home for another meal. There are also locations in Leesburg and... More

Good food, great service and at a fair price. If you want to eat between 4:30 to 5:45PM you can expect to wait at least 20 minutes, but it is worth it.

I'm conflicted with my experience here. We had an issue with some of the food being cold/cool and one messed up order in my party of six. I elected to get the three meat meal so I could experience as much of their food in my visit as I could while I was in town. But as for my meal... More

It was a delight to experience the food and the dedicated employees at the Oakwwood Smokehouse & Grill. We were visiting friends in The Villages and they insisted we all have dinner at the Oakwood. The ribs were fantastic --- Gooey, meaty, flavorful. While I'm glad this is not a chain restaurant, I live in Seattle, Washington --- a bit... More

I've had BBQ all over our Country, but the Oakwood Smokehouse has them all beat hands down. The ribs are awesome, the meat cooked to perfection and falling off the bone. The sides are fantastic too from their baked beans and slaw to sweet potato fries. I've also had the BBQ pork sandwich which is also great. The ambiance would... More

Stopped in on a Monday night after hearing good reviews from other locals and was not disappointed. Great prices, good portion sizes and super fast service. No beef ribs here, but the pork ribs are outstanding - a half rack was more than enough for an average woman. The chicken dinner consists of half of a chicken and boy was... More

This place has some of the best baby back ribs I have ever tasted. Fall off the bone moist and soooo juicy we could not believe it. My only complaint is that they did not give me more. You need to order the full rack the 1/2 rack does not get it. Also it is a good idea to ask... More
