Traveling south to Florida we stopped here for dinner. Great southern home-cooking. The ribs were some of the best I've had. Service was fast and friendly. Portions were large so unfortunately we didn't have room too sample desert.

Wow! Everything here is fantastic from the meats to the vegetables. The greens are seasoned well with plenty of Potlicker left over. Definitely take the time to get off the highway and try this place. Great atmosphere and friendly service. It's worth it!

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! We have never ordered a dessert because we are always so full from lunch/dinner! The staff is wonderful. One lady has her small daughter there, occasionally, which we love, bec it just... More

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.

We were in Dalton on the spur of the moment and always when we are in area we're not familiar with we turn to Trip Advisor. We looked up restaurants and number one was Oakwood Cafe. Read several of the reviews which convinced us to go try. Upon arriving to Oakwood you could see a lot of locals going in... More

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.
