Outdoor Dining in a Nostalgic Setting

On this recent visit, we dined on the patio for the first time. The view was wonderful as a number of jet skis, small boats and pontoons jutted across Chippewa Lake. The activity on the lake died down after a beautiful sunset, at which time string lights softly illuminated a packed patio. The... read more

My grandmother used to come here with my grandfather and they would dance on occasion. Although they don't have the dancing any more, it was very special to bring my grandmother back and hear her share memories of my grandfather. Our steaks were amazing. I cut mine with a butter knife. The truffle fries were a real treat and the... More

Lousy over priced food. You get one salad or one kind of soup. The salad has no cheese and no onions. All this for $100 for 2 people. THE ABSOLUTE WORST Want fish? Sure they have it....ONE KIND ONLY. I don't get it. Why would anyone eat there? I recommend going to The Timber Lodge on Pearl rd. Much much... More

Christmas isn't far off and The Oaks is once again beautifully decorated and ready. Another fabulous dinner in a nice quiet setting made for the perfect evening with friends.

Great hidden fine dining on the lake. Beautifully decorated , very cozy dining area, and amazing views only add to the high quality food and service. The only slight negative and can say about the food is the chicken we ordered was a bit over cooked and not of the highest quality meat. My family only purchased Gerber chicken from... More

It has a romantic setting being placed on Chippewa Lake. You can dine out on the nice patio. Many weddings take place here and more often than not you can witness a wedding while dining. This makes it more palatable. It is a nice restaurant but the service is on the slow side. One time we waited 20 minutes for... More

This is our go to restaurant for birthday celebrations and other times during the year. The setting is fabulous on the lake. If you go in the summertime, you may get a chance to see a wedding being performed at the gazebo overlooking the lake. Pretty outdoor setting and patio. Great food and menu selection. Servers are incredible. Their Mother's... More

Friday night we went to their clambake that due to weather was moved inside with the band. The beauty of the lake outside the windows can not be denied and must be mentioned. It was my first clambake ever but was disappointed that there was no chicken not the menu. We were upstairs where it was weirdly cold with the... More

We had reservations for 7:30 pm. and got there a little early. The sunset across the lake was a beauty! My husband had the perch special I had the chicken pasta. The bread and olive/olive oil blend was delicious. The salad was great. The meal was good but nothing to write home about. The ambience was good. Our waitress was... More
