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.

Great Food

This place has great food. I got the pot roast and my husband got the fish. Both entrees were very delicious with big portions. My husband had a fried pit that was just okay. If ever in the area again I would definitely make a stop in once or twice!

Check out this great place to eat. Tonight, all the servers were clean cut males, all looking sharp and professional. Ask for Ashton, new server with the best attitude i've experienced in a long time. And the food..... plenty and fast.

Have eaten at Dean's 3 times and cannot say enough good things about his food. His grilled vegetables, (squash on one visit and asparagus on another) were very expertly grilled and seasoned just right. If you do not stop by the bakery, you have not experienced Dean's at its best. The fried pies, especially the chocolate and coconut are two... More

Dean's has daily specials that all sound delicious. I had the turkey with gravy and was very pleased; they used a minimal amount of gravy on the turkey while still making the turkey very flavorful. The sweet potato side dish comes topped with marshmallows and had too much added sugar for me, but southerners might enjoy it. Would I recommend... More

Do you want to have food that you know someone really cares about serving you? Well, look no further! Dean's restaurant does just that and more! You get an amazing meal from the start, with warm cornbread and yeast rolls (that my children devour) to a wonderful assortment of entrees and sides to choose from (my husband never has room...

Dean's Restaurant and Bakery Absolutely Outstanding. Fresh vegetable's daily item's on the menu are to many to list pot roast, meatloaf, pulled pork and I could go on. My favorite is the salmon awesome. Great dessert options however, you must try the banana pudding which comes in a mason jar that you get to take home. The Staff Lynn and... More

Dean's is a great, local restaurant. I could eat the dinner rolls all day. They also have some great dessert options.

If you visit our Secret City of Oak Ridge, TN, you must visit Dean's. Absolutely everything on the menu if fresh and fabulous. The entrees can be ordered with one, two, or three sides and no matter if it's grilled salmon or pot roast, the price will be $7.99, $8.99 or $9.99 depending on number of sides! Now for the... More

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 it a try, you... 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.
