Our group of 12 had a reservation made on August 17th. When we arrived on August 24th the place had closed. I left a message to add 2 people and they never called back. We arrived and were stunned. The ridges hotel was mortified that we weren't called. Thank goodness for Brothers restaurant. They saved our night. Their meal was... More

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

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
