This is outside of Ogden but is well worth the short drive. There is outside seating as well as inside. Lots of people come just for the ice cream, but the menu offerings are wonderful. Parking is tricky--not much room between the restaurant and the road. It seems there is always a crowd but we found the wait time bearable.

We took a Saturday night drive up Ogden Canyon to check out The Oaks. We were a little disappointed that it was a 35 minute wait for outside seating. We decided to sit inside rather than wait. Next time we'll wait. However, the view from inside was good and the food was excellent. The waitress kindly opened the window to... More

The Oaks Restaurant, Ogden Canyon, Utah, is a delightful, peaceful eatery. Nestled in some Oak and other trees along side of the Ogden River, this restaurant is actually more than just about the natural atmosphere – the food is far better than most other reviews indicate it is. My burger and fries were perfect and with fry sauce included too,... More

This restaurant used to have great food and service. I looked forward to eating there all of the time. However, the last two times in a year have left a lot to be desired. For example, last year we had a party of approximately 12. It took them well over an hour to seat us and another hour to fill... More

Great alpine location, right on Ogden River up the canyon. Our visit resulted in fine omelettes and good service. Outside dining is an option. I liked the cottage fries, and my wife really enjoyed her Jake's Omelette. Nice place.

This is a great restaurant in beautiful Ogden Canyon, highly recommended by a local. Eating outdoors is one of my favorite things, and The Oaks has a great outdoor seating area located on the back of the restaurant (away from road noise!) and overlooking the burbling river. There are tables in both sun and shade. Delightful! But no matter if... More

Delightful surprise. A favorite while in Eden. Usually stop from the airport (SLC) on our way to Eden and back on our way to the airport plus try to sneak in a lunch or two in between. Have had up to 8 in our party and everyone getting something different. Not a single disappointment. Place does not look like it's... More

Next to McDonald's and Subway this is my son's favorite place. I like the atmosphere much more than the food. The food is average but when you are sitting outside next to the river on a beautiful day it doesn't get much better. It's a great place to take a bunch of kids because they can be loud. The food...

I ate here years ago on a visit and loves it. When I returned a few years later it was on my holiday wish list. Choose to eat outdoors if you can, it's a great Al fresco dining experience. Great for families and quick service. The food tastes great, full of flavour and the drinks are fun. A detailed menu... More
