Delicious homestyle mashed potatoes, creamy mac n cheese, fresh fruit salad, regular green beans, and hamburger steak is as steak as it can get! German chocolate cake is like store bought but good. Long wait to order is what made it an 4. Perfect excuse go back without the little ones to enjoy the wait. :)

Top notch. Service has been great, food exceptional, and the atmosphere of bustling hustle is endearing. Our favorites are the pot roast, grilled chicken, fried okra, and banana pudding. We travel a lot, and eat as much, and this is our 3rd visit here since May of this year.

I had a very good omelette here on a return trip through Georgia. The food was exceptional, with large portion size. And the price was better than a national chain restaurant near the Interstate exit. I also had coffee, which the waitress re-filled frequently. The booth seating was comfortable and there was a constant flow of people coming in. This... More

The Oakwood Café is part of the fabric of downtown Dalton. The food is excellent. The menu offers up plenty of options. I often meet people for lunch there to catch-up, do business, etc. I love the ambience.

The fried Okra had obviously JUST come out of the frier and was lightly breaded and certainly fresh. The fresh fruit side and plain Sweet Potato were perfect as healthier options -- add the cinnamon butter at your own risk. 2 in our party ordered the chicken livers (fried)- & they looked outstanding. I'd skip the peach cobbler, as it... More
