Good Country Food

Good food. Small portions for the price but I've never had a bad meal here. I go often and take my grandchildren who love to go there, also, because of the variety of menu items.

The pot roast was outstanding and so was the service. Spectacular sweet tea. The macaroni and cheese was bland, but the corn soufflé was very good. I will definitely return.

C'mon in and seat yourself. We were politely addressed with a, "Ya'll ain't from around here, are you?" when our waitress stopped to take our drink orders. I'm southern born and bred and knew I wanted a solid, local favorite. Found it at the Oakwood Cafe. A great local spot where everyone knows everybody else. The menu of meats and... More

Oakwood Cafe is a favorite when good home cooking is what we are in the mood for. They are very fast and the food is always hot and delicious!

We went for dinner after seeing the reviews on Trip Advisor; we would rather patronize a local business than eat at a chain restaurant. I was disappointed in most of my meal. I had the BBQ chicken and ribs plate. The ribs were quite tasty but my side dishes were bland and small portions. I didn’t bother eating the chicken... More

We realize why this restaurant is rate #1. The servers ask everyone who isn't local to PLEASE give them a great rating after your meal. Ugh. This is not the place that the reviews raved about. I'll bet everyone who works there has been a reviewer. My husband didn't know there was no alcohol- asked for a beer. Wow! If... More

Stopped through on Ohio to Florida trip for a roadside rest. Wanted to be off the beaten path. Glad we stopped in. A nice change of a home cooked meal from the usual road trip stuff. Would recommend the diversion from the highway. Thanks!
