I LOVE meat and vegetables restaurants. Oakwood Cafe is exceptional. I ordered chicken and dumplings, carrot souffle, slaw, fried cabbage and cornbread. Everything was exceptional! I have heard their breakfast is exceptional too!

Always good. They have a different menu every day. You can get a meat and two or three vegetables or you can order off the menu. Their chicken salad is wonderful also. The have a spinach salad with strawberries and pecans and you can order the chicken salad on top. Love this place and it is locally owned.

The Cafe is a quaint little restaurant which offers great food and conversation.The food was great and served with a "homey" atmosphere. The waiters/waitresses were outstanding and the food was not overpriced. Great place to meet friends and family for a homestyle meal.

If you like southern food this place will make your tongue slap your forehead!! If you don't then bless your heart. It's so cute inside and the food was incredible.

This is one of the most popular places in town. The staff is great and they do a good job in the kitchen on pretty much anything that's on the menu. If you want comfort food or just good old Southern style food this is the perfect place. Fried Chicken or Chicken livers, steak or a salad you can't go... More
