“No frills, no fancy, but really good catfish”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2012

You should not go to The Oaks if you want ambience. Not just "good ambience," but any ambience at all. It's in a strip mall, it looks like you're eating in a dentist's office, and the crowd is mostly big families and the elderly.

But if you want really damn good catfish? Go to The Oaks.

I stuffed myself -- to the point of excess -- only to realize that in addition to excellent fried catfish, salad and sweet potatoes, there were also amazing buttered rolls on my plate that somehow I had missed.

Delicious. Simply delicious.

“Best Fried Seafood Buffet I've ever Eaten!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2012

This place is jammed every night. It's filled with people that love country cooking and are ready to eat. We brought a hungry rock band and crew to devour the fried seafood buffet. The catfish was incredible. Everything on the buffet with delicious. We stuffed ourselves until we could eat no more.

I strongly recommend this restaurant if you want to dine with the best of local country cooking.
