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.

We ate here while on business in the area. There were so many options on the buffett. I had some of the best fried chicken I've ever had! All of the sides were just good, country cooking! we alos received fantastic service! I will definetly eat at The Oaks again if I'm ever in the area.

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....

There are many good things to eat at the Oaks, but we love the giant cheeseburgers, all the way! The meat is ground when you order, so it really is delicious!

We were traveling back to Tampa and decided to find a local spot versus a chain. This place was terrific! Amazing southern food and great steaks. Catfish was delish. Sides and salad bar also terrific. Local flair and friendly servers made it that much better. We'll be back next time we're in the area!

We recently came to Marianna for a late thanksgiving with my grandparents. The hotel we stayed at recommend the Oaks and we decided to give it a try. The food was wonderful! The staff and waitresses were more than glad to accommodate my large family. Love the homey atmosphere and good home cooked meals. I could have ate this good... More

This is one of the most wonderful places to eat. Nothing fancy, but if you can ever find where the locals eat, you have found the best. I always get the catfish; it's some of the best you'll find anywhere. Their ribeye steaks look great also. My wife loves the grilled shrimp. When close by, drop in. You will not... More
