Good food, it is another BBQ chain. Price was right, drinks good, just unfortunately "average". Maybe just too open, bench table bench... Take none of this toward the wait staff, they were excellent.

Stumbled upon this gem accidentally. Great BBQ in a friendly atmosphere. Best ribs in town and the rest of the menu is awesome, too.

Some of the friendliest staff you could wish to meet. The food never disappoints and the deals are excellent. When our family visit from UK the first thing they ask, when are we going to Oakwood? My husband has the ribs & he's yet to find any better than theirs.

Great Food! Great staff. Its always busy so go early. My favorite is the full rack of baby back ribs, or the sliced pork sandwich. The food is always fresh and warm when received to table. No problems when parking, parking lot wraps around the restaurant.

Some if not the best ribs in town!!! Just check out the line outside and you will feel the need to stop in. Great staff always aiming to please. Pulled pork take out special is a must also. Can't beat the price across the board. If you love BBQ this is a must while in Leesburg/lady lake

There are several places in the area that have good ribs, but this is definitely the best. I've eaten here over a dozen times and their food is consistently good. If you go at the wrong time there can be quite a wait, but that just shows you the popularity of their food. Best to go early or late. Definitely... More

This is a good place to go for ribs and the sides. Everyone takes good care of you and makes great suggestions.

My Husband and I periodically stop at one of the Oakwood Smokehouse & Grills on our way back home from a trip from the airport. By the time we get off the plane we are starved so we head back home and stop there to eat something before getting home. We are always seated almost immediately and a server is... More

Always love Oakwood and the June rib special ($11.99 for full rack + 2 sides) is something we look forward to each year. They have some different sides: roasted corn (cold) salad, corn fritters, fried oakra and more. Cole slaw is not the creamy type and doesn't appeal to us. Service is usually good but the portions and tender ribs... More

We enjoyed a sample of pulled pork, sausages, brisket and ribs. Each item was prepared to our satisfaction, the sides of fires and sweet potatoes were also very good! Our only complaint is that the place does get crowded and you can expect a wait on certain days/holidays. We recommend that you give this place a try, they do have... More
