This popular casual restaurant offers great barbecued ribs and chicken, as well as many choices of sides such as collard greens and corn salad. Service is excellent as well.

The main dishes are good, the side dishes are excellent, the sauce is not so good if you prefer a sweeter type of sauce. I found them all spicy and/or tart.

There are lots of places around The Villages where one can have BBQ Ribs. We were recommended by friends that it is the best when I mentioned I like ribs at Sonny's. Yes, indeed it was good with meat soft and coming off of the bones quickly. The fact that my wife liked it and my visitor from up north... More

Today once again we go to Oakwood. Normally we go to the one in Eustis, but today we tried the one in Lady Lake, and the food was fantastic. My husband had the BBQ meat plate and it was very good, actually he couldn't finish it. I had the blackened Mahi sandwich and it was excellent. The service was one... More

The Oakwood Smokehouse & Grill in Clermont, FL is a sister restaurant to the one in Lady Lake, FL. It serves the best sliced pork roast I have ever had. The pulled pork is great too. You can't go wrong eating at this wonderful BBQ restaurant. It puts the other BBQ's to shame. Can't get any BBQ better than this.... More

Thank you so much for your review.......we are proud of our sliced pork and pleased that you like it. Our pulled pork is roasted for approximately 12-14 hours. When we take it off the smoker, there is one bone that literally pops out with no meat on it!!! As for the portions, we believe that giving people a generous amount... More

The full rack of ribs truly deserves the rave reviews that Villagers and others in the, just as folks say, but that's not all to try here. Everything I've tried here is above average including the mahi mahi, the barbecued pork sandwiches and the delicious baked beans, slaw and other sides.

Oakwoods has the best baby back ribs I have ever eaten. The meat falls off the bone. This restaurant offers ultra fast service and a great selection of sides to go with those ribs, or whatever meat item you might choose.

We have been dining at this establishment for several years, and although the quality of the food has remained high, the portion size of the full rack of ribs has diminished drastically. In the past, I was completely sated after consuming a rack of ribs. Now I eat a full rack and half of my wife's full rack and am... More

I had the beef au jus with corn nuggets and a drink and it cost $7.99! The sandwich had so much roast beef on it, you couldn't finish it. The waitress was great and the atmosphere is really nice. You've got to try this place when you're in town.
