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 about this lovely, little hometown diner is superb. The setting and the atmosphere reflect different shades of southern hospitality, with a hint of a downtown bakery lingering. If you are looking for a healthy portion of well-seasoned, cooked to perfection, southern comfort food at a price you can afford any day of the week then go to Dean's Diner!!!

I seriously cannot say enough about how wonderful this restuarant is, and the owner/co-owner is a wonderful lady.

Thanks Dean's!!

A group of about 6 of us went to Dean's without a reservation and were told we could wait an hour to be seated, or stand at the "Pie Bar," where you have to stand while you eat but your pie is free. We decided to do it, and it was one of our favorite experiences from our trip to Oak Ridge. The service was great and the food was great. The coconut pie was incredible. If your looking for a great time and great food for very fair prices, Dean's is the place to go, and it will be expanding in August so that it can hold larger groups.

We live less than a mile from here, and walked down one night when we had a babysitter. We thought it was a simple little diner, but it was nothing but! A great, quiet dressy casual little restaurant - prices not too high, and the food was amazing! I just got chicken tenders, my husband got prime rib. It was great!

This place has great food, with a fresh menu that changes every day. We eat here whenever we are in Oak Ridge! And while they still have it, be sure to stand at the Pie Bar! Free pie with your meal!
