Beautiful summer wedding by the lake and reception a few steps away in the Lodge. Plenty of room for guests to mill about both inside and out. Food, service, atmosphere - phenomenal.

We had dined here many years ago and decided to return on a perfect sun-filled Friday evening. As requested, we had a table on the patio and enjoyed an evening that hit the mark on every level. The service is prompt and efficient. Entrees include soup or salad and delicious home-made breads. The gorgonzola vinagrette dressing on the house salad... More

We dine here each summer when we can be on their charming patio and overlook Chippewa Lake. The brie and calamari are excellent appetizers. Trout and cod were both excellent. Portions are very generous. This is a good spot after theater in Wooster Ohio or meeting midway between Cleveland and Columbus.

My grandmother used to come here with my grandfather and they would dance on occasion. Although they don't have the dancing any more, it was very special to bring my grandmother back and hear her share memories of my grandfather. Our steaks were amazing. I cut mine with a butter knife. The truffle fries were a real treat and the... More

Lousy over priced food. You get one salad or one kind of soup. The salad has no cheese and no onions. All this for $100 for 2 people. THE ABSOLUTE WORST Want fish? Sure they have it....ONE KIND ONLY. I don't get it. Why would anyone eat there? I recommend going to The Timber Lodge on Pearl rd. Much much... More

Christmas isn't far off and The Oaks is once again beautifully decorated and ready. Another fabulous dinner in a nice quiet setting made for the perfect evening with friends.

Great hidden fine dining on the lake. Beautifully decorated , very cozy dining area, and amazing views only add to the high quality food and service. The only slight negative and can say about the food is the chicken we ordered was a bit over cooked and not of the highest quality meat. My family only purchased Gerber chicken from... More

On this recent visit, we dined on the patio for the first time. The view was wonderful as a number of jet skis, small boats and pontoons jutted across Chippewa Lake. The activity on the lake died down after a beautiful sunset, at which time string lights softly illuminated a packed patio. The backdrop felt like we were on a... More
