We enjoyed our lunch there and found it to be as expected. We are returning this evening and will further update after that visit.

Visited The Oaks last summer for a birthday dinner on Lake Chatuge. The setting is lovely -- ambiance great -- drinks wonderful -- service good -- food less than par. Will not return unless it's for drinks and appetizers.

Sadly the restaurant is no longer open but this is a lovely location to plan a special event - birthday, wedding etc. We hosted a birthday party and the food was good, the staff fabulous and I would highly recommend. Location looks right out on Lake Chatuge and the marina.

The food was tasty and delicious, and the service was great! The staff was very accommodating in meeting our needs and provided our food on time! The desserts were exceptional and the beef brisket would melt in your mouth! It was all top quality!

As a realtor with Coldwell Banker in Hiawassee I often take my clients to local area restaurants... This one in Hiawassee is always a favorite. Unique menu pleasant service and lovely hotel and grounds make the Oaks and the Ridges Resort a must see must stay must eat destination.

Breakfast Buffet was included with price of Hotel. Very nice setting with good choices. I liked the numerous choices from meat, eggs, grits to breads and cereals.

The place was closed. Nobody told us when we booked the room. Their other restaurant was open but their food was not good. We ate at Enricos in Young Harris and had a good meal.

We had Thanksgiving Dinner reservations at 2:30 and were not seated until after 3 PM. At that time there was not much left over to eat. Of the domestic and imported cheeses only yellow and white American cheese cubes were left, the Autumn Leaves Salad consisted of wilted mixed greens only (no dried cranberries, toasted pumpkin seeds, crumbled goat cheese),...

I will agree with the previous review. Brought family there from out of state for Thanksgiving dinner. We have been there for several previous ones, including Easter brunch. The place looked overrun and staff poorly coordinated. Waited 20 min past reservation, no problem, but also waited for 15 min just to get drinks while waiting for table. Didn't have limes... More

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
