This place really is awesome. We love the food but saw a roach on the ceiling right above our table...after we ate. We told the staff and they were friendly about everything. Overall, great place to eat.

Great food, no matter what you order! We love the smoked chicken (you get 2 HUGE chicken breasts!), homemade BBQ sauce, delicious choice of vegetables that change daily!

This place is incredible. Down home southern food done right with great service. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Do know however that some things on their menu are "limited" as in, when they're out, they're out.

If you are looking for good southern comfort food look no further than Oakwood Cafe when in the Dalton area. They have a choice of meats and vegetables listed by day and the choices are just down right home cooking. I had chicken livers, creamed corn, mac and cheese, and green beans with cornbread and sweet tea for about $10.... More

My husband commented on how many chicken livers he got for dinner. I thought the meatloaf was very good.
