Unique menu

This new eatery in Wooster (formerly South Market Bistro) has a unique and tasty menu. Although the offerings are limited, the menu is creative. The atmosphere is conducive to a business lunch or a casual meeting with friends. Prices are a bit high, but the experience was worth it.

My daughter and I lingered over our menus with coffee and talk of her wedding plans on a chilly Saturday morning after discovering this cozy eatery. The breakfast/lunch menu has a short variety of choices that makes choosing so difficult. We were well watched over in a very unobtrusive way while we chatted and sipped. Finally, we made our decision.... More

Small cozy space. Great for lunch, night out, or apps and cocktails. Former South Market Bistro space. New owners bring a fresh young vibe to the space as well as the menu, which focuses on local, seasonal and unique flavor combos.

The food is all wonderful, but I especially love their breakfast. They have great coffee & Bloody Marie's too! Its also one of my favorite drop in spots for a quick drink. The bartenders are fun, creative and make homemade elixirs.

Really amazing food. A bit pricy. The atmosphere is fancier but the food is worth it. It's a great place for a date night!

My husband and I wanted a place to grab a quick bite to eat before heading out of town. A friend had eaten here when it was the South Market Bistro and said the food was good, so we decided to try it. First off, you wouldn't want to stop here if you only have a 1/2 hour for lunch,... More

We enjoyed the Oak Grove Eatery just as much as SMB over the years. The chef and his wife purchased the restaurant recently and are now open for breakfast and lunch as well as dinner. We went with friends and enjoyed a variety of entrees. My husband loved the risotto with duck confit served in an acorn squash and I... More

Have eaten here on several occasions. The Breakfast is very good with large portions. Sandwiches and soups were tasty. Nice variety. Bloody Mary is good.

The South Market Bistro has closed. It was purchased by the chef and his wife (who worked front of the house) and has reopened under the name Oak Grove Eatery with expanded hours (including breakfast).

After a long day at the plant, we decided to try South Market Bistro after an outstanding meal at another restaurant in downtown Wooster the night before. As great as that meal was, this was super disappointing. First, the service was kind of slow, It took quite a while for our food to come out, even though the restaurant was... More
