Our server, jJenny, asked us if we knew about trip advisor because the new owners are encouraging folks to review The Oaks. We were only too happy to oblige. The Clint Eastwood trout was scrumptious and beautiful; the Marsala was the best my husband ever had. We really enjoyed the wine from two local vineyards. We had a nice view... More

Attended a special birthday event last night, and as usual, I was not disappointed in the food or the staff! Amanda and Heath, you guys rocked it! Two of the best restaurant staff in Hiawassee.

We've lived in Hiawassee since 2005. This used to be a good and popular restaurant, but our last two visits - August of last year, and July of this year, have really disappointed us. The last visit especially was a complete waste of time and money. Our waitress was pleasant, but her service was lackluster and slow. She wasn't swamped... More

Went there a few Sunday's ago as we were staying in the area. Very nice location, sat outside. Our server Heather did not go into a lot of detail about the dishes. I ordered a seafood chowder. When it came I couldn't see a soup spoon. I waited and looked around for her but she had disappeared! I then asked... More

Very delicious yet expensive. We both had steaks and they were cooked perfectly! Wonderful, efficient, friendly service. (Thank you Kerri!). We sat inside at a booth but there is nice seating outside also. Our wedge salads of Romain were very good as was our sides of broccolini! Really appreciated the generously sized glasses of wine. We love The Oaks and... More

We were disapointd with the quality of the dishes at the Mothers Day Buffet. Most items were cold and there was a lack of sauces for the meats at the carving station. Certainly not worth the $34 per person charge.
