Love this place!! Food is delicious. Menu is fairly extensive. The waitstaff is very professional. Great spot for a special occasion. Birthday, anniversary, and date night. Excellent food at a four-star price! Desserts are also wonderful! Never disappointed

They had a table by the window overlooking the creek with lots of mallards to watch. The fancy glass vodka martini with blue cheese olives was Judy what she wanted to celebrate her birthday. The service was excellent. The special pork chop was delicious as well as the cold water lobster tails were very good. Had a very enjoyable dinner.... More

White Oaks has been in business since before the era of prohibition- tonight's meal made me wish that we visited when White Oaks was in her glory days! While our wait staff was very attentive they lacked treating each guest with individual attention- except the young busboy- he noticed the Fairview Park rec center swipe tag on my husband's keychain...

The restraunt was very crowded and decorated for the holidays. People were in a very festive mood. We had a party of 12 and had to wait even with our reservation. Food was fair and the service very slow. seemed like part time help just for the holidays and not in the holiday spirit. We had a few after dinner... More

Beautiful setting, look out the window at Cahoon Creek frequently animals wander by and look at you inside. Service and food first class, of course it's pricey that's to be expected...

My husband and I went to this restaurant for the first time recently. We were pleasantly surprised with the atmosphere. We had no idea what to expect. There are nice views and the tables are not crammed together. The service was very prompt and friendly. The food was delicious, I ordered the onion soup and the filet and my husband... More

Thank you for your great review. It is definitely appreciated when someone has a wonderful experience and takes the time to write about it. In today's social media climate negativity reigns supreme unfortunately. We have been working hard at this for 88 years(46 years current family ownership), and we dedicate our resources to the old way...personal service, quality products, sauces... More

Unique decor, takes you back to a bygone era. Warm and cozy, the fireplace was a welcome sight on such a cold and windy night. And the view from our table was just beautiful. Watched the deer and geese below. Service was excellent and food was delicious. We ordered salmon, and it was prepared perfectly. Will definitely go back.

Presumably this restaurant has ben voted most romantic. I can't see it. It was loud and noisy when we were there. The food was not impressive. They offer a relish tray and the celery was yellow. The chicken picatta was okay; but, the sauce was heavy. Service was very good. The one thing that was really nice was the view... More
