We went to the Oaks last year for Thanksgiving and had a lovely meal. We were surprised to see that they had closed but found out when we were at the Blue Otter (sports bar at the same resort) that they only opened for special occasions so we made reservations for this year. It was extremely disappointing. Where do I... More

When we checked in at the Ridges they advised this restaurant has been closed a month. Hopefully someone will either note the fact they are CLOSED on their website or TripAdvisor will do something to notify future guests. Drove up from Atlanta for a night on the lake and were sad to see such a highly rated restaurant unexpectedly closed.

Every time I have ever dined at the oaks it has been over the top. Amanda, Jenny, Kerri, deb, jeanne, and heath are the best. Food is out of this world. Really hate to see it close down.

We had not been to The Oaks restaurant since they stopped having their buffet meals a couple of years back. We went to celebrate my birthday and the food was excellent. Their biscuits are madewith goat cheese and were tasty. I had delicious grilled local trout. Another person had the "Clinr Eastwood" trout which was cooked in paper. He said... More

Our server Amanda was top notch. The food both quality and quantity leave nothing to be desired. I am a shrimp and grit fanatic and this preparation was top notch. This is a truly a do not miss restaurant.

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
