Best ribs around

Best ribs by far..sevice is quick and servers are pleasant. Don't be turned off by outdoor line-ups, you can order a drink and sit at the bar or outside while you wait which will be not too long. Worth the wait..mm

I have eaten at Oakwood Smokehouse & Grill numerous times & it is the absolute best BBQ place to eat at. The service is friendly & quick & the quality of the food is always consistent. Get there early or you will have to wait but the wait is definitely worth it. Try it for yourself, you won't be sorry

My wife and I, often accompanied with friends, regularly visit the Oakwood Smokehouse & Grill in Lady Lake. The food is delicious. I love the ribs and the pulled pork while my bride in a big fan of the lunch size chopped pork as her dinner entree. We give this place 5 stars for smokehouses and not to imply that... More

Great BBQ ribs and they have an early birds special. Plenty to eat and a great variety of side dishes. My friends always call to see if I want them to pick me up a carry out when they are there. Of course I say heck yeah.

Great ribs and delicious sides. At least one craft beer on tap the night we visited and half pitchers were only $5. Sides were great but I wish they were a little bigger. Despite the crowd waiting to get in, the wait for a table was quick. Friendly, efficient staff helped to keep things moving. Delicious!

While staying in the Villages, one of the residents told us to go to Oak Wood for ribs. We did today and they were awesome! We all had the baby backs, we also shared the breaded green bean appetizer & corn fritters, they were great as well. We will definitely be going again!

We ate there on a recommendation from a friend and we were not disappointed. I had the rack of spareribs and they were awesome. I would recommend the restaurant to anyone looking for great BBQ food.

During our four years living in The Villages we have enjoyed many dinners at the Oakwood in Lady Lake. The food is consistently excellent, particularly the baby back ribs. Tender and flavorful, the meat falls off the bone and melts in your mouth. So many locals agree that it is sometimes difficult to get a table, particularly "in season". We've... More

We have been going to the Oakwood for years. The ribs are the best. The place is packed at times and you might have to wait for a table. They have specials where the ribs are a real deal, call to find out the days. The service is friendly and if ever there was an occasion where I wasn't happy,... More
