This place has been around for years. We live close to this place. Once a month we go there for dinner. They have great ribs and chops. Very nice friendly servers. If you would like some great ribs.. This is the place.

Glenwood Oaks has been serving the community since 1974. Although I was a frequent patron in the 80s it has been 25 years since I was there last due to our move to another state.The atmosphere is the same - clean, bright with very attentive staff. The owner circulates and interacts with the patrons. A great family atmosphere. Food wise... More

The service is friendly and the food is consistent. They give a discount and a free dessert if it's your birthday which is a nice gesture. I definitely recommend the ribs....and it comes with a complimentary bib!

We have eaten here twice in the last 3 weeks and each time ordered the ribs which are delicious. The double baked potato was delicious but I did notice that the first time it was in a potato skin the second time it was in a round shape -- still good though. My husband had a salad he just loved.... More

My review of Glenwood Oaks may be a bit biased because my family have been regular customers for many years. We have spent many different occasions there. We have had brunch to family style meals and because of our frequent visits we have had very good meals as well as "sub par" meals but the norm is very good. The... More

Great food - got the food to go through their carry-out. The menu selection is great. I would recommend anyone to either eat in or get their food to go because it is worth the drive from Indiana.

Nice surroundings, friendly likeable staff. Unpretentious ....a menu made up of dishes that one feels that the chefs know how to make well...wonderful drinks...large serving (yes, you will pay, but not more than they are worth)....my entree was a prime rib..rare..that was apparently briefly roasted over a very hot flame resulting in a juicy, crisp rare meat dish. Capital Grill... More

I've been going to Glenwood Oaks for over 20 years. It was always a special place for a special meal. Over the past two years, I've become reluctant to go when I get invited. I usually get the petite filet mignon. I've stopped ordering that because it's always well done when I order medium rare and I have to send... More
