I go to Live Oak Grill very often. Most people there seem to be regulars. It is a very popular place for locals. Large array of menu items - something for everyone. A large beer and wine selection. Great burgers, pork chops, grilled tuna. It gets very busy at lunch time - go for an early or late lunch.

Called ahead to set aside a room for 14 folks for a meeting. Was told there was a $50 refundable deposit. I agreed and put on my credit card. When we arrived the greeters were totally clueless about us coming in or the reserved room. The restaurant was not busy at the time so it only took 5 minutes or... More

One night a week they serve a special prepared food on a table with no covering. I saw a kid sneeze and coughs and there was nothing to shield the food. Poor customer service. I walked in on another evening, and instead of politely saying they were closed, the young women yelled from across the restaurant saying the sign of... More

This place is a solid choice, but that's all. The decor makes you think it will be a local joint with great food ... not so much. The food is mostly precooked and over done. The presentation is diner carry out. And the flavors are cafeteria like. That's it bad ... just not great. If you're looking for a casual,... More

We went with our entire family and had a great time. The place is full of fun signs to read. It has a good patio, and very good food. I had a delicious barbecue and cheddar burger with some great fries. My daughter had a huge piece of almond crusted chicken. Good portions, great appetizers, and fun. I recommend it.

It was a nice evening so I decided to eat at the the Live Oak Grill. I hadn't been here in several months and it looked like the outside eating area had been upgraded. Got there about 6:30 pm (Tuesday) and walked right up to the counter. Beer here is $3.50 and most burgers or sandwiches are from $6 to... More

Food is always good here. Pretty large menu so you will always find something you will like. Two of my favorites are the chicken fried chicken and blackened salmon. Chile, burgers are also great!

Most folks come for the burgers and fried chicken tenders. The service is walk up to a counter, order from the menu on the wall, pay at the counter, get your drink and utensils at another station then find a table and wait for your food to arrive which is generally fast even on busy days. I ordered a 10... More

I eat the chicken fried steak with gravy and vegetables. This is excellent food. We go there for lunch at least 2-3 times a month. We are able to get in and out quickly. It is a hidden jewel.

Love, love, love this place! The chicken fried steak and fried catfish are my favorites. My kids love the sweet cream corn, I think they could eat a ton of it. We love that you can choose your sides. The staff are always so friendly.
