We met for a Fathers Day dinner. Our server was beyond courteous and outgoing. We felt welcomed and appreciated. The food is always yummy and the price is right! Can't wait to visit again.

I highly recommend the fried pork chops, collard greens, and okra. I have tried the fried chicken livers and thought they were really good, not over cooked or over battered.

Great southern comfort food. It gets really crowded around lunch time. Great spot to catch up with friends but not with energetic kids.

Excellent selection of food choices which vary daily. Very large helpings, almost too much for one person, but so good that you pack it in. There pork chops are the best I have had and if you like chicken livers, they are the best.

Honest to goodness sit down southern food like your mom would make for you. The smoked chicken is great and the corn casserole is like dessert. However, if you aren't into southern food (bless you heart), the Oakwood offers burgers, smoked chicken and barbecue, a couple types of chicken salad and many more items too. My wife just got the...

We had lunch here. The menu allows for lots of choice. We were able to put together choices that let us sample the Southern style and still eat fairly healthy. The food was tasty, the service friendly and efficient, and the prices more than reasonable. Also, I guess the Oakwood Cafe is a regular lunch place for many of the... More

We stopped in on our way to Nebraska. Worth the drive from the interstate, about 5 miles. The catfish was perfect. The hushpuppies were light and crispy, best I've eaten anywhere. The service was unbelievably quick. We couldn't resist the peach cobbler. It was delicious and a perfect amount. We will definitely return!

We stopped for lunch and felt fortunate to get some totally satisfying vegetable plates for around $7. I had a perfectly cooked sweet potato, cole slaw, cheese grits, and fresh fruit. I can't believe this place is running second to Chic-fil-a! We were wishing we had a place just like this at home.
