The Oakwood was the don't-miss restaurant for 65+ softball players at the SPA Nationals in Dalton, Georgia. After moving toward the rear with our seven-person party of softball players, including six from runners-up The Firm, 65+ AA, we were treated to a 10 per cent discounted feast. You get to choose from the large selection from the daily menu. I... More

Great experience and good southern cooking. Very friendly and "hometown" atmosphere. Good value for the cost.

I live in Dalton and my wife and I eat at the Oakwood 2 or 3 times per week. Needless to say we like it... a lot. Excellent choices from meat & 2 or 3, bbq, sandwiches, salads, etc. (Salmon salad with mixed greens is one of my favorites.) Incredible onion rings. Really good breakfast as well. Try the sweet...

Home cooked - awesome food. The dining room was a little cold but it was August. Most folks would appreciate that. Fast service. Look forward to my next trip.

I went on Saturday afternoon and it was a busy place. Very typical southern style restaurant. You can get a meat + 2 or 3 veggies; two veggie plate or 3 veggie plate. They had a few other things on the menu but I stuck with the tried and true. The selection of meats and veggies varied by the day... More

This place reminds me of Sunday dinner at grandma's house, every thing is cooked to perfection, the best meat and three veggies you will eat any where, you don't stay in the restaurant business for fifty years unless your this good. PS don't tell anyone I have enough trouble getting a table now.

But to be fair I never have to wait long for a table; they actually have a very large seating capacity & quick service, particularly at lunch. This is a typical Southern meat & 3 with a fixed weekly menu and some all-week-long gems. My particular favorites are the squash casserole (Tuesdays) and the ribs (all week long). To round... More

We picked this restaurant from Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. The restaurant was clean, the servers were friendly and the food was good. Our order came out before we had time to blink. I would save room for dessert- our family of 3 split two and it was a good ending to a southern "down home" meal
