“Wonderful food!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

The ribs here are excellent. They are tender, perfectly barbequed and just downright yummy! Have tried the pork and chicken sandwiches also, which are very good. The sides are good too. Never had anything bad here but the wait. Good things come to those who wait. It is one of our favorite restaurants in The Villages.

“Best ribs anywhere!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Oakwood has many great items, but the ribs are absolutely wonderful. I usually order a full rack and get a take home box for half of them. The sweet potato fries are crunchy and soft inside. Very casual atmosphere; roll of paper towels on the tables. Beer and wine served. No mixed drinks. Prompt, friendly service.

Come early, especially when the Snowbirds are here! As their sign says, "If you have reservations, you're in the wrong place!"

“Great Ribs”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

We were a party of 8 and had to wait 35 to 40min....which we expected. Our party was seated at a very large and comfortable table. Service was quick and food (ribs of course) was delicious. A great place to go at least once a year. Please ignore the rating for bar scene and outdoor seating, since they do not exist.

“Best Ribs in The Villages, FL”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Ribs is the specialty here, and they're the best in The Villages, FL. They have a very special signature BBQ sauce that comes in sweet, or hot. The menu offers down home cooking, with great appetizers like fried ochre and fried green beans. The restaurant is very efficiently run and service is fast and friendly. Come early during "snowbird season", if you come after 4:00 be prepared to wait awhile for a table...but the wait is worth it. There is outside seating on the porch for you to wait for a table if there's a wait list. But everyone's friendly, and the time passes quickly. You can feel right at home in this family friendly restaurant.
