Wonderful! Our special occasion was perfect!

I have nothing but praise for the beautiful experience we had for my Mom's 80th birthday gathering. I made reservations long in advance for our party of 10 and was so nervous about everything being just right for our mother's special day. Johnny, the owner, communicated well with me via email... read more

Last time we were there was about 15 years ago. We were celebrating our anniversary and I thought it would be nice to visit them again. No real expectations and I hadn't made reservations. There was entertainment in the "event room" and quite a few open tables in the dining room yet we were asked to wait about ten minutes.... More

Wonderful setting but there is something dysfunctional going on here. Whether they are "resting on their laurels" or just don't care anymore, this place could use a visit from Gordon Ramsey or some other reality show chef to help them realize their potential. When we visited on a slow weekday night, four of our party of six were served at... More

The food is above average and the service is good dining on the patio is nice but the whole place is a mere slight of what it could be if monies were reinvested to update and remove the over whelming smell of musk from the interior

My husband and I have been enjoying the Oak's Lodge for over 25 years. This past year we have celebrated anniversaries, birthdays, family get-togethers, Son's Homecoming, Easter, Mother's Day, and numerous "just because" dinners there. Lacy is an exceptional server who never lets our drinks run out, always remembers "our usual" dinner choices and provides a non-rushed, caring attitude. Johnny... More

My friend took me to this place and I have never been before. So glad she took me! It was so beautiful! The food is outstanding. Make sure you make a reservation though. But plan on spending a couple hours while you're there to eat and walk around and enjoy the scenery of Chippewa Lake. It's right on the water... More

We have been coming for years to celebrate anniversaries and birthdays. This trip was a big flop. My 88 year old father had made a trip up from Atlanta just to celebrate 2 birthdays and an anniversary. We had picked the Oaks for our place to eat. Our waitress took forever to wait on us. She did not come by... More

We haven't been to the Oak's Lodge in several years but we were so happy that it has not changed much except it is actually better. The staff is extremely friendly, accommodating and attentive. The food was excellent from start to finish. And the grounds are meticulously maintained and so beautiful. We can't wait for our next visit. We had... More

Just the most beautiful evening I have had in a long time. The food was incredible. The sunset was amazing. The lake was fabulous! The service was wonderful. It was a very special time and we were able to take our time and not feel at all rushed. I don't think the prices are out of line for everything that... More
