We come to the Oaks every summer when we make our visit to family in Marianna. This is our favorite Restaurant when we come. The staff are excellent. The cook was very friendly when I asked to speak to him (had to brag on the food). My family, and I want everyone to know what a great family restaurant the Oaks is. I am sure when we come in August the food will be just as good as always. Can't wait to see everyone, and enjoy the BEST food around. Kudos to the cook!

We had two dinners at this restaurant, first meal was fried shrimp which was quite good, the second one was a catfish filet that was over cooked and came with cheese grits that was uneatable(way too much cheese flavor), Other family members had a hamburger steak which was very good and huge so come with an appetite. There is a salad bar with a good variety of choices, tomatoes were very tasty-appeared to be home grown . They also have several types of home made cakes for desert, we split a piece of coconut cake that was very tasty,
Be aware that on Tuesday they have a sea food buffet that includes crab legs so the place will be very busy,

This is an honest to God "down home "eating experience. Best prime rib ( beats the big name spots) I have eaten in 5 yrs. very good price! And I love the sweet corn grits. Not much to look at but VERY friendly, quick staff, first rate service and GREAT food. Got to get off the interstate and go a few miles but well worth the effort!

We did 'Friday Night Dinner' with what must have been half of the Marianna population (everyone waves at everyone else) and had a super meal.
Admittedly, a lot was fried (our choice), but it was great. The Catfish plate was different, since it was whole catfish (4!), but they were easy to conquer. The baked Yams came with a side of brown sugar and enough butter to float a small boat. Yummy...
As expected in this part of the world, the service was friendly & personal.
A real find...

The food was good and the atmosphere was cozy. Our waitress Lana was one of the nicest and friendliest servers we've ever had. I would suggest that you request her when you visit!
