Stopped here today for lunch while passing through heading west on I-10. We've been here before and know the food is really good. Don't be fooled by the location and large atmosphere, trust me the lunch buffet is fantastic. In June they had many seasonal vegetables fresh prepared. It's busy during lunch but the restaurant is so large they can... More

I have been to this place every time we come to town because you cannot go wrong with the shrimp on the menu. On Tuesday night there is a AYCE seafood buffet which have these fantastic shrimp on it. I'm getting hungry just sitting here writing about the Oaks. Other friends ordered other items off the menu and all look... More

We were delighted with the quality of the both the porterhouse and rib eye steaks that we enjoyed. I had the combination steak and shrimp. The waitress offered two fired shrimp and 2 sauteed shrimp with my dinner. I strongly suggest just take 4 fabulous fried shrimps. My only disappointment was that I was dying to try their real down...

Nothing fancy, come as you are! Very plain atmosphere but the steak is wonderful. Good salad bar and price is reasonable. Would return.

I have visited this restaurant 3 or 4 times in the past and there is a reason I keep going back. They have excellent down home southern style food for a very reasonable price. The fried chicken is always on the buffet and is always fired just right. Today they also had baked chicken, friend catfish fillets and they had... More

Found this restaurant on trip advisor. Reviews were so good we decided to try. I had the catfish fillets & my husband had the prime rib special. They were both really good. First time trying catfish, tasty. My husband said one of the best prime rib he has had in awhile. That is quite a statement considering just back from... More

Had lunch at the Oaks today with my Mom. There were six meat items to choose from and several different vegetables also. Along with hushpuppies and yeast rolls, it also included the salad bar, and five or six different desserts. The food was fresh and hot, and very good. Our waitress was very friendly and gave us good service. It... More
