There's nothing that really is great about the food. There is nothing healthy that is really offered other than a salad bar. I wish there was more to the menu. The decor needs some TLC. The servers are friendly. Not sure if I will be back.

Modest local restaurant that is simply delicious and an excellent value. Buffet is loaded with vegetables. Meats included pulled pork, fish and chicken. Salad bar had fresh tomato slices and plenty of topping choices. Dessert bar featured cheesecake with blueberries, banana pudding, creamy chocolate pudding and more. The afternoon buffet was $10 and included a drink. If you get water,... More

We went on a Tuesday night for their seafood buffet, I like seafood, but my wife doesn't. The seafood buffet was just as expected full of good sized shrimp, whole catfish, catfish filet's, clam strips, scallops, and frog legs and crab legs. I wish they would put the fried oysters back on, but I guess their a bit pricey now.... More

The Oaks is a buffet, with dining rooms spread over four or more storefronts, furnished with folding tables and banquet chairs (one room has permanent booths.) The food is freshly made traditional Southern style and plentiful; fried chicken, fried fish, meatloaf, potatoes, mac-n-cheese, veggies. There's even a well stocked salad bar and pre-plated desserts. Grab a plate and go to... More

Based on recommendations from 2 friends from the area, I went with friends for a dinner. The place was packed, but we had reserved a table. But the wait for tables did not seem to be long. We all ordered from the menu. The salad bar had fresh ingredients. I ordered the hamburger steak and was very pleased with it.... More

Very good lunch buffet or order from menu. Never had bad food there. Friday lunch buffet has whole catfish and catfish fillets along with good fried chicken. Big selection of vegetables. No ambiance, but plenty of good food. Always big crowds, but seldom have to wait.

I thought the buffet was a little steep at 21 per person. The food was good but nothing to write home about.
