Let's start with fried Salt pork (fat back) and greens, fried chicken that your Granny would have served, individual puddings and homemade rolls. Kids 2 & 10 loved corn on cob, macaroni & cheese, fish nuggets, rolls, and chicken. Paid $7.99 for adults and $2.99 kids excluding drinks for Saturday lunch on our way to Florida cavern. Should have gone... More

The Oaks restaurant was a surprise, going on the reviews from Trip Advisor we decided to try it. The restaurant is located in a strip mall....not what we were expecting and our hopes started falling. Walking inside we were greeted with a smile and the room, or rather rooms were packed with people. The restaurant just sort of took over... More

We went here on the advice of someone locally. We asked for somewhere that was authentic and reasonably priced, somewhere the locals went. It's not glamorous, it did provide us with the tastiest freshest food we have had whilst being on holiday here. Absolutely lovely and the people were really friendly as well.

Great salad bar, fresh catfish (whole and nuggets), home-cooked vegetables and other entrees, desserts, etc. Can't wait for another opportunity to drive through Marianna!

I found out about The Oaks Restaurant through Trip Advisor reviews. We stopped on the way to Biloxi, Ms. The reviews are correct. It's in a strip mall, nothing fancy, but the food.....Wow. I first tried the fried shrimp. You get 12 "jumbo" shrimp fried in a delicious batter. My husband got the fried catfish. Both meals were excellent. Comes... More

We found this place via our hotel recommendation....Very good and fun to immerse yourself into the local life. Not fancy but good food and nice waitress.

I was in Marianna, Florida and called a friend to see where he recommended for a great place to eat. "The Oaks" came out so quickly, I had to ask him to repeat it. He highly recommended The Oaks and I followed his advice. On arrival, I found it to be located in a strip mall and I had my... More

I have eaten here many times and I always hope that it will be better, but it isn't. The food is average for a seafood restaurant. The main problem here is its so busy all the time and its slow service. Make sure you get a salad bar to tide you over until the food arrives. Another thing is the... More
