We went to the Oaks for their Valentine Dinner. We arrived a few minutes early, and seated in the bar by one of two hostesses for a drink before dinner. After about a 20 minute wait, we were seated at a table for two in the middle of the room. We waited and waited for an additional 20 minutes and... More

This year we decided to 'get away' for Thanksgiving. I found 'The Oaks' online... it came highly recommended by a Cleveland area reviewer. The meal was full of variety on the buffet, but one disappointment - the mashed potatoes were missing! Quaint setting, overlooking Chippewa Lake. Buffet was very good --- perhaps a little pricey.

My husband and I have been going to the Oaks since the early 1970s. For the past twenty something years, we have been meeting college friends there once a year. We began at the bar with a very friendly bartender then moved to the dining room. We started with appetizers; calamari (which is not fried), sauerkraut balls and stuffed peppers.... More

We ate at this restaurant and the view was nice. However drunks to n corner were loud.The service was horrible and what was supposed to be a nice evening turned out terrible. Salmon was over cooked, Mahi was to oily and kitchen was very slow. Overall first experience was so bad we will not go back!
