The Buffet Where the Locals Eat Lunch

Most popular restaurant for lunch in Marianna. Locally owned, the Oaks has a good country buffet and great service. You can get in and out in less than an hour and the food is always fresh and good.

A customer of mine recommended that I try The Oaks, and it did not disappoint. The buffet had a large selection of meat, vegetables, etc. Everything I sampled was hot and fresh. The next time I'm in Marianna, I'll definitely go back.

There is a buffet and also a menu that you can order from. Because we were in a hurry we decided to try the buffet. From a distance it looked adequate. Although I was still really surprised to see the place, I expected a lot better based on the reviews. As an example, the catfish was so hard I could... More

Not really anything to write home about, food was average, it looked like they had an extensive lunch buffet but dinner was just ok. Cheese grits were very salty. Cole Slaw was good though.

At the urging of friends, I drove over an hour to try The Oaks. They raved that the fried shrimp was the best they had ever tried. The Oaks is nothing to look at...it is located in the shopping center of the same name and occupies about 4 storefronts. Your first sign that this place is good is the sheer... More

I've had the lunch buffet many times. The buffet during lunch never lets you down either. Just had dinner with a large group. Wasn't sure what to order. Went with a companion's suggestion. Sirloin tips with green peppers, onions and mushrooms (plus two sides and choice of breads) is hands down a winning dish! Out of the appprox. 20 people... More

If you are in Marianna at lunchtime this is the place to be. The buffet is a terrific value. The food is fresh and well prepared. I am not generally a buffet fan but this is an exception. Collards and Mac n cheese are especially good.

Was looking for a local place to have dinner, stopped at the Oaks. Thursday night is Prime Rib night, it was great, and service was also great. Owner was there checking on everybody,made you feel like they really appreciated that you were there.
