“Nice cafe style food”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

This place has an interesting menu and I've never had anything there that wasn't really really good. It can get crowded as it is not especially large although bigger than it used to be if you haven't been in for awhile.

“Lunch at Big Oak”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

Have had breakfast and lunch here often. The food is always good. Service can be a bit slow at times, especially if there is a line. Like the outdoor seating.

“I don't get it”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

The Big Oak is really popular, but I don't get it. The food and service are average, and way, way overpriced. Many better options close by. Cakes are terrible as well. No matter how many times I visit or eat something from there, I am puzzled by what makes it so popular and trendy. Go elsewhere unless you want the status.

“Great little place”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Great little place. Great flavors. Great Service. When you are finished be sure to get your groceries at the Butcher Shoppe! Friendly staff. And very clean.

“Sandwiches for days”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

This is a favorite lunch spot in my family. The variety is great, and the options for sides are tasty. The sweet tea quenches and the portions satisfy.
