“New owners, same problem.”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Wanted to try this out again as we heard they have new owners. We got to meet one of them, and were less than impressed. She sat at the bar and complained the entire time about how tired she was. We told her we were here for their pizza and asked if we could just grab one of the open tables in the bar area. She told us to go ahead. We sat, in full view of her, and waited for a server. After 20 minutes and empty cocktail glasses we had to go and find help. We eventually got a waitress who did take good care of us from that point on. The problem is, and always has been, the lack of organization and good service. We watched server after server and owner after owner walk by us, but no one takes the initiative to help you. We ordered the pizza, and it was fantastic as always. But we will not eat here again. The female owner said they are trying to spread the word to draw people in, but didn't do anything herself to make us want to return. Its a shame, because the atmosphere is nice and the pizza is very good. But when an owner doesn't appreciate the business, we'll take it elsewhere.

“Excellent find!”
Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

What a treat! My family was looking for a Sunday morning breakfast and found Oakwood by a sign on the side of the road for brunch. What a fantastic find! Beautiful decor-think northwoods motif with home touch. The brunch was delightful. $10.95 adults $5.95 for kids included full salad bar, soup, dessert table and buffet choices including pork chops, chicken, spaghetti, eggs, French toast and much more. The service was great too! A must for a Wild Rose visit.
