My wife got shrimp and I got the rib eye and shrimp. The shrimp were huge and tasy and the steak was prepared just like I like it. We had a great time with great service.

We were driving thru Marianna looking for a place for lunch. We had to pass up one eatery on a side street because parking was “pull up on the lawn and get barely off the road”. We were driving our short RV so had to move on. But I kind of think we were meant to find The Oaks which... More

Seafood pretty good, crab legs overcooked. Our waitress was great and friendly. I've been eating with the owners many times. I loved their resturant in chipley they used to have.

Due to a flat tire, I found myself in Marianna waiting to have it fixed. I happened across The Oaks. It's a lunch buffet filled with well made dishes. The fried chicken is perfect, and the catfish is the best I've had in Florida. They have a full vegetable array, and a dessert bar. The staff is very friendly and... More

While on a weekend camping trip to Florida State Caverns we stopped by The Oaks for dinner, After a day of packing, traveling, and setting up our site, we were tired and just wanted a simple, home style Southern meal. After reviewing other comments on Tripadvisor, we picked the Oaks. Great choice, once again the Tripadvisor was right. The Oaks... More

Great Restaurant and Staff. Known for their extensive and great buffets daily. Lots of food, vegetables, salads, and desserts all for under $10 dollars. On Tuesday nights, they have a great Seafood Buffet. Sundays they are closed. I love their Big 28 ounce Porterhouse steak with all the fixins.

If you like good basic food & to eat with the locals, this is the place. The tomatoes on the salad bar were so fresh & ripe - sure enough, they're locally grown. The grilled catfish was nicely seasoned (well, maybe a little salty), & my husband enjoyed his ribeye (which was not very fatty). We will return!

Food was average, desserts a diabetic-inducing nightmare, but gave me IBS-D. Bad.... I guess what can you expect from this area....
