Very satisfied for the price.

We were taken to Oakwood by relatives when we were visiting The Villages. They had raved about the ribs here even a year ago when we visited, so I didn't want to be rude and say "I don't really like ribs". Well, turns out I do like ribs! At least, these ribs, which were very good. The other thing that... More

I always get the ribs - beat around. Sunday thru Wednesday they have them discounted. There is usually a wait but since no desserts turnover isn't too bad. Worth the wait.

We brought home several racks of ribs and sides to share as a family at home. They were delicious! The sides of corn fritters were tasty as well. It was convenient and made dinner easy. We would definitely have their ribs again.

The evening special was 1/2 rack ribs and choice of second meat with two sides and a Texas toast for $13.99. I had the 1/2 rack ribs and smoked turkey. Sam's coleslaw the best...the rib meat was so tender the... More

Visited the Oakwood Smokehouse while visiting our Florida Family and loved our meal! The crowd was our first hint that this was a popular place! The kids' ordered their favorites while we sampled the fried green beans, sweet potato fries, and best of all, baby-backed ribs! Meaty, fall-off-the-bone delicious. Our server (Justin) made the experience all the better with his... More

My wife is NOT a fan of Barbecue. However, when her sister visited recently, she reluctantly agreed to eat @ Oakwood Smokehouse & Grill, in Lady Lake, FL. She tried the ribs and she fell in love with them. We have eaten there twice and each time was the same experience. Excellent quality food, excellent service and prices that are... More

First of all the location is perfect if you happen to be staying at the Microtel attached to the property. When we stay there, we bring all our friends across the parking lot for a fantastic meal. Both my husband and I are very impressed with the amount of meat on a sandwich, or on your plate for a bigger... More
