We love Oakdale! Their "Indiana Lobster" broiled catfish is AMAZING along with the Walleye. Steve (bartender) is great at making drinks. Portion sizes are good and prices aren't bad at all.

Love the Catfish filets, they're always amazing! Steak is the best deal around and the best place to get one if you're not in the mood for fish!

Has an amazing view of the water underneath the dam. Our waitress was extremely busy yet provided wonderful service. I would recommend the seafood such as the catfish and bluegill over the steaks. Nice laid back place.
