The Oaks is another historical restaurant in the Ogden Valley. It is located on the river in Ogden Canyon and in the summer there is outdoor seating by the river. The food is excellent although the service can be somewhat slow. (Not a big deal if you are not in a hurry and you enjoy the outdoors).Their coffee is always... More

We drove by this place around 2pm in the middle of June and stopped to check it out. The outside tables are very close to this babbling brook against a mountain side. We returned for dinner when the temperature had dropped about 15 deg from Ogden City's 101deg. The staff is super friendly. Even the ones that were not serving... More

We met family members for a get-together. We ate outside and was it chilly! But the atmosphere was anything but chilly. Excellent service was provided by the wait-people! They were all friendly and took good care of us. Ogden Canyon is a wonderful place. It was very pretty when we were up there with the Ogden River flowing merrily along.... More

The Oaks is a great place to eat if you really love being outdoors and close to nature. The deck along the the river, the towering trees and the stunning canyon walls are worth the trip. The food is not extraordinary but our salads were quite good and we were able to order a nice glass of wine while we... More

This is such a great restaurant. I stop here every time I'm back in the area. Located on the Ogden river with outdoor seating, you can't ask for a better experience. Add to that, consistently tasty food. If you're a vegetarian, their veggie burger is excellent.

We happened upon this little place by accident and decided to stop and try it out. The menu is smaller with mostly burger/sandwiches. The food was "okay". All staff we encountered were friendly and service was good. The scenery is gorgeous! We were sat at a table right by the river. The views are just amazing for an outdoor setting.... More

First off, I was really disgusted to see the old worn carpets and wood slat seats (I knew there was nothing about them that was even remotely "clean"). Once we sat down were were treated nicely and received menus. We ordered and after what seemed like a little while, we received our food. I didn't think it was anything special... More

Took the family tonight....3 generations plus a "grandson in law" We all had great sandwiches with sweet potato fries. If you go, be sure to get the deep fried green bean appetizer!

We have been to the Oaks on many occasions. It has always been great. Not this time. Prior to our arrival, I called to verify hours, and asked about reservations. I was told emphatically that the Oaks did not take reservations, that "it was first come, first served." We arrived at a little after 4:00pm. The place was not packed,... More
