Amazing food and Valentine's experience

Oakwood is a good local place to eat . Especially when you want more than just a burger and fries menu.

Oakwood is a locally owned and operated family style restaurant! Very Good food, good service, good value and a local favorite! You see and meet many friends for breakfast, lunch and dinner at any given time. It's stood the test of time and is one of Dalton's oldest establishments. If you want to get the feel of the community, stop... More

We eat there about once a week. Smoked chicken with 2 sides of veggies and Brunswick stew is my favorite.

If you enjoy BLT's, this one offered a great twist - the T was a fried green tomato. Crisp and delicious, as was the bacon, and on a thick wheat toast. One of the better lunch sandwiches I've had in a long time. Worth the stop if you're driving past Dalton on I-75 in North Georgia and trying to avoid... More

I love this place, because they are consistently awesome. The service is always great and friendly and the food is excellent. I absolutely love the chicken casserole, it may be the best that I've ever had! This is probably the best non chain restaurant in the Dalton area and would definitely recommend it to anyone.

It is rare to find food this good. It's a shame it's not closer to the Interstate but very much worth the drive from I-75 to downtown Dalton. Outstanding service too!

My husband and I ate dinner here before going to a high school basketball game. The lemon-pepper talapia was hot and juicy and well-seasoned. The creamed corn tasted like my grandmother's. The fried okra was good but not the crispiest I've ever had. The service was very fast and courteous.

Next thing I know, the server brought me a small sample to try. Yes, I did order it adn it was very filling and hit the spot on that cold day. The... More
