Description: We are located in historic Jackson Square. This property once housed Jackson Square pharmacy. After 55 years in the same family this property became available because the previous owners wished to retire. We were lucky to get it. We renovated and tried to keep as much of the original charm as possible. We hope you like it.

Everything was as it should be. Salads were very fresh, pie crust was flaky, fries were golden, chicken grilled to perfection and presentation was wonderful. Some people working there looked familiar to me so I asked where they worked before. Sure enough, it's the Flatwater Grill people! The Chicken potpie was so creamy and full of chicken. All 4 of us raved.

“Well worth a trip to Oak Ridge!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

The food is delicious, they have great service and the reclaimed pharmacy dining room feels open and airy. The bakery items are amazing. I enjoy the "meat and three". It is American "upscale" comfort food. Run don't walk to Dean's!

“Delicious food, great service, wonderful atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2012

My husband and I have a new favorite restaurant! Dean's was such a good experience. The food was delicious and dessert was scrumptious. The restaurant itself was comfortable and relaxed, while having an upscale feel. I felt pampered. I can't wait to return.

“We would eat here every night if we could!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

Love the atmosphere and the nostalgia this place has. Great quality food at a reasonable price. The people are awesome and the service always aims to please always. Our favorite thing is all the wood grilled flavor in many of the items and the home cut fries. This is the one place where it's exciting to eat your vegetables too! The salads are excellent, and the snicker doodle cookies melt in your mouth. Love that it has local flavor and hope it stays for a long long time!

What a great place to eat. Located in the Historic district of Jackson Square. The food is awesome! After a good meal, enjoy the bakery items. Entree and daily specials are very popular
