If you grew up in the South and had a mom that knew how to cook "from scratch", you've kinda already been to the Oakwood. This kind of food is becoming less common as more of us, including many restaurants, use ready-made food stock. The deep flavor you get from food built "from the ground up" is only possible with...

I have used the Oakwood Cafe for my family and to cater business functions. You will love everything on the menu. I always take my out of town guest to Oakwood for a true taste of Dalton.

I ordered their tarragon chicken salad on a croissant with a side of corn casserole. For my husband, I ordered bbq with mac and cheese... More

When you travel, sometimes you just get tired of fast food, chain restaurants, and you just crave good old fashioned home cooking. This is what you find at Oakwood. We went bc of reviews here and weren't disappointed. Turkey and homemade cornbread dressing, smoked chicken, tender cubed steak, greens they cut and cook themselves, fresh cut and fried okra, homemade... More

My mother, brother and I enjoyed a leisurely late lunch. Our waitress was attentive and knowledgeable. The food was suburb and the portions excellent. The greens were fantastic and the pepper sauce was on the table. My brother said the pot roast was fabulous and mother's catfish was perfect and piping hot. The corn casserole is amazing, the only corn... More

Love this place for lunch, they have different meat specials everyday and then you get your choice of 2 or 3 sides. Lovely Southern cooking.

We always eat here on our way to Florida. The food is wonderful and inexpensive. The wait staff can't be beat. If you don't try it, it will be your loss.

Nothing fancy about the Oakwood Cafe. Classic meat plus two.or three sides and homemade desserts. The cafe was full of locals on a weeknight from families to teens. I had a vegetable plate and my companion had fried porkchops. Lots of fried options here though the pot roast.looked good too. Food was good and very reasonably.priced.
