We are located in historic Jackson Square. This property once housed Jackson Square pharmacy. After 55 years in the same family this property became available because the previous owners wished to retire. We were lucky to get it. We renovated and tried to keep as much of the original charm as possible. We hope you like it.

The place to eat in Oak Ridge

I so love eating at Deans restaurant. They have some of the best tasting food around. You can't go wrong. Come on down and try the turkey and dressing or the Texas style beef brisket. There is something for everyone here. Prices are great along with the portions they give you. Come on in and give... read more

Wow, great food and reasonable prices! The wood-fired grilled corn was delicious as well as the turkey and dressing. Very generous portions. The wait staff was very attentive.

My family and I eat at Dean's quite often and are never disappointed. The food is good home cooking at a very fair price. My very favorite is the catfish, nice and crispy, not greasy at all and very tasty. Pair that with the wood grilled summer squash and fresh corn and I am very happy. Sandwiches are generous, salads... More

Great food and family atmosphere. They have the best deserts hands down. You should definitely save room for them. The rest of the meal is just good home cooking. Pricing is very reasonable too. Helpful and friendly staff.

Ate here twice this week it's so good. There can be a wait so get there early. This restaurant is in the old Jackson Square Pharmacy and they have kept some of the charm of the old building. There is an old phone booth and the old sign hanging on the wall. There is also a huge bee hive that... More

This is without exception some of the best food you will ever eat. The atmosphere is casual and quaint with a true hometown feel. The building is in fact original to the Manhattan Project era. The chalkboard art is amazing and changing based on the season. Do yourself a huge favor. Eat at one of the most frequented restaurants by... More

My husband and I ate at Dean's because of what I read on TripAdvisor. You did not steer me wrong. This was not our typical business trip fare. I had the chicken and dumplings, candied pears, and grilled squash. There was so much food that I had leftovers for lunch. For dessert we shared the pineapple upside down cake. It... More

I'm not going to spend a lot of word on this review, I'm just going to say, this is the best restaurant I have ever been to, my co-workers and I have lunch here often. It is by far, one of the BEST!!! Get it a try.

This is a great place to go when you want to try something that isn't a chain. Oak Ridge has a fair amount of dining choices considering the size of the city. Dean's is worth your trip to the "other" side of town. The meal choices they offer reflect diner/home cooking. Prices are reasonable, portion size is fair and the... More
