Great Home Cooking!!

I had Chicken & Dressing on this Friday. They have different meats and veggies on different days. Service is mostly good and food is always good. If you go during the noon hour, you WILL have to wait. That seems to be their busiest time. They do have good breakfast, lunch and dinner

Recommended by a local since the Dalton Depot was closed, my wife and I ate Southern. Pot roast with sweet potatoes and fresh cooked greens I did have. Wife had the cube steak with real Idaho potatoes and the greens. Awaiting Peach Cobbler now! Great service! Cobbler came hot with whipped cream, yum

Consistently Good Food and service. The daily menu changes. The BBQ ribs are the best in the area. The soups are always delicious.

Great restaurant for southern comfort food. BBQ pork and ribs are great. Quick service. Definitely worth the five extra minutes from 75 even if you are traveling.

local institution with good food, unique desserts and best sweet tea around. they have burgers and bbq and such but the oakwood has always been a meat n 3 type place, with country cooking the highlight. turkey n dressing, steak n gravy, fried chicken, ham, or fish they'll feed you and treat you right. home town atmosphere but very welcoming...

Oakwood Cafe is a great place to eat if you want home cooking without you doing the actual cooking. It is very busy so be sure to time your visit around lunch time!! This restaurant is a huge hit in the local area!

My husband and I travel frequently for business and tire of the same old "road food." Based on reviews and research, we decided to go out of "hotel row" and head downtown to Oakwood Cafe. We left soo happy that we did. We had the Smoked Chicken breasts (yes, they give you TWO), the pot roast, cucumbers in vinegar, mac... More
