We check TA for restaurant reviews on our travels. We like to try local restaurants and the Oakwood Cafe was a hit. Delicious catfish and flavorful ribs/pulled pork combination. Well worth the 10 minute trip to downtown Dalton. Friendly helpful recommendations and service.

Started going to this location after they catered lasagna, chicken fingers and salad to my job. Always as expected. if you want home cooking. I'm addicted to the pork chops fried extra crispy. The to-go side portions are small.

Best place for miles around to experience Southern cuisine. Food is always fresh and ingredients are top grade. My favorites are the smoked chicken, grilled tilapia, greens, green beans and salads.

Turnip greens are the real deal. All entrees and side items are homemade cafeteria choice comfort food. Fast service on meat and 3 menu 5 minute ticket times. Not fantastic, but consistently damn good.

Got green beans, meatloaf, and mashed potatoes. Service was very good. Meatloaf less than desirable. Green beans ok. Mashed potatoes a little cold. Sweet tea so sweet I had to dilute with 1/2 water.
