“Great scenery...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

The scenery is fantastic. My partner and I decided to take a scenic drive and be "touristy" for the day, as we are from CT and are in the area only for a short while. We ended up in Ogden Canyon and found The Oaks. The server was friendly, and we were greeted right at the door. We ended up sitting in a little booth looking out the front window at the canyon rock. The food is decent- not bad, not fabulous, but decent. The pricing was reasonable. It's what you'd expect from an out-of-the-way type of eatery, but seeing as we weren't looking for a fine dining experience, it measured up perfectly.

“GREAT BREAKFAST/BRUNCH!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

All their food is very good. Their brunch/breakfast is WONDERFUL! Burgers are really good. Service is great. This is pretty much a dive in winter (I love a good dive), but in the summer it is delightful to sit outside. Really can't be beat! Give them a try! Oh, and they use a really good coffee, so be sure and get some coffee with your brunch or breakfast!

“The Broken Oaks”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We have been going to the Oaks for many many years and it has lost a lot of its better qualities. The outside setting in the summer is still a very nice experience. The breakfast food is not as good as it has been in the past. Examples are the bacon is no longer thick and does not have the nice smoked flavor it did and the potatoes are just run of the mill. Toast was good but only got one slice. The last three times we have been there the service has been poor at best, this is a big change because in the past the service was always excellent. I just don't see the value for the money and poor service is unacceptable for me.

“Beautiful views and.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

The oaks provides beautiful views. It's nestled in the heart of Ogden Canyon.

I prefer their breakfast over other meals, but they are all good. I recommend you get there early on the weekends or you may have to wait a little bit to get seated. Also if you get there early, you are more likely to get a window seat if you sit inside. If the weather is good and it's the right time of year, sit outside. The river flows right past many of the tables and you may even see a bear across the river. There was one in the area just last year.

One more tip. If you can, ask for Trent. He is a friendly and detail oriented server.
