Great View & Fantastic Service!

Went on a Sunday drive & decided to check out The Oakes Lodge. Hadn't been there in probably twenty years. We set out on the patio, enjoyed a glass of wine and enjoyed the view. The staff was fantastic, the service was top notch. We will be back!

I will long remember my visit to the Oaks Lodge. The weather outside was perfect. I was seated in the row of tables closest to Chippewa Lake. A large umbrella shielded me from the direct overhead sunlight and I loved my clear view of the lake....and all the delightful activity on it. I most enjoyed the beautiful landscaping and gardens...

I hadn't been to The Oaks for probably 25 years so I really didn't know what to expect after all this time. I had read some reviews that the place was a bit shabby but I did not find that to be the case. The inside dining areas looked top notch white table cloth but my friends & I choose... More

I picked the Oaks Lodge restaurant for my birthday because of the view and it was quite nice. You can see the lake from most of the inside dining and they have three outside areas that are scattered through their back yard down to the waterfront. We also enjoyed our food and drinks and thought they were priced as a... More

We visited this restaurant again (last time was 30 plus years ago) we honestly thought that it had closed. The food was awesome. Every aspect of our meals were perfect! We will definitely be returning soon. There is a huge outside patio that has live music on Thursday/Friday nights and would like to experience it once the weather is warmer!... More

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. Jan, the in-house designer, coordinated with me to create... 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
