We love going to The Oaks Lodge. We have been going there for about 12 years and each year the menu and food just get better and better. Looking out onto the Lake is spectacular especially at sundown. And having dinner there during the summer months is very special. This is a must on anyone's list of wonderful evenings! Try... More

I've been going to "The Oaks" for decades. Thefood has been up anddown--but last time it was great. The View is unparalleled. Have a drink and appetizer then chose a entree. It is worth sitting there and seeing what life was earlier.

This restaurant is locally owned and operated. The chef creates amazing dinners that you won't find anywhere else, and the view to Chippewa Lake is breathtaking at sunset. The restaurant also does fun theme nights, like their annual Viking Dinner. I highly recommend starting with the Baklava Brie appetizer. Order a glass of wine with your meal and stay a... More

We went to dinner with another couple here on a Saturday evening. We called to say that we'd be late and they were very accomadating and told us not to worry. When we got there they had us wait for 10 minutes, then seated us. The restaurant appeared to be about half full. We were immediately served water and given... More

We have enjoyed driving out to Chippewa Lake at many different times of the year to enjoy a celebration or romantic dinner in this unique historical inn-turned restaurant. In the summer, we enjoy dining outside on the expansive old stone patio (this was once the summer home of a wealthy family) surrounded by sculptures and verdant flower gardens with a... More

We wanted to make our first anniversary memorable. The Oaks came through, but not in a good way! We had an invitation via email for our special anniversary, for $10 off and a piece of cake. The waitress, Anne, ignored us most of the night, but water server, Leah, was most kind. We had a drink, ordered our dinner, and... More

We have been to the Oaks Lodge in Chippewa a number of times and although it is pricey it is a very special place. The people are great. Marge the bartender has been there over 30 years and is a gem herself...but this lovely century old place on beautiful Chippewa Lake has all the elements of cool, classy, yet casual... More

We frequent The Oaks Lodge on special occasions The beautiful grounds on the shores of Chippewa Lake lend a rich pastoral ambiance to a charming Lodge. Of many positive reasons to dine at The Oaks Lodge, the most important is the food. This chef combines tastes like nobody else! Last weekend, for our anniversary dinner, I had tenderloin medallions stuffed... More

This is a true gem! It's a 50 minute drive from the western suburbs of Cleveland and well worth it. The environment is lovely--even in the winter! We had a great dinner by the fireplace, the service was terrific, and the food was wonderful. I had the ribeye, husband had the pork, a friend has the salmon, and the other... More

We love the Oaks Lodge, and have dined here on-and-off for years now. Can't beat the view to the lake and the atmosphere is both elegant and comfortable. We have always had great service here, as well as good food. We really need to come back more often, as we always enjoy ourselves when we go. The location on the... More
