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!

Ok, I'm gonna be honest up front. We went her to have dinner, but ended up only having drinks. That being said, this poor review may not be justified. Our friends that live near here wanted us to have a grown-ups night out a nice restaurant with them while we were visiting. We didn't have a reservation, I guess our... More

Spectacular sunset view is worth the trip to this remote restaurant but expect high prices. The food is nothing to write home about but I don't think people come here for the cuisine. It's more for the location and atmosphere. The service is excellent too. Great place for special occasions.

If you are seeking a picture-perfect setting along a lake for refreshments or dinner, this would be your place! A group of five of us arrived unexpectedly on a busy Saturday around 6 p.m. without a reservation (this is not advised!), but the hostess consulted her book and managed to accommodate us. We were seated at an outdoor patio table... More

We ate there this evening after a business acquaintance recommended it, and it was everything he said it was. The restaurant is intimate and full of character, the grounds are beautiful, and the food was absolutely delicious. One of our new favorite places, and we will be returning often.

Food is excellent. Best kept secret for years - tucked away next to Chippewa Lake. Beautiful grounds in any season..

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.
