Fine traditional cuisine on the west side! If you come in daylight, you can check out the wildlife through the picture windows, particularly the loons. The food is delicious, service impeccable.

Recently had date night at White Oakes. The pork madalions were delicious and the Prime Rib was cooked perfectly. Fireplaces and candle light give a warm and romantic atmosphere. Service was excellent. We will go back!!!

This place was a speakeasy during Prohibition. Its a quiet place with a relaxing atmosphere. The food is prepared well and with care. Everything is delicious and the wood burning fireplaces only add to the atmosphere.

We ate dinner here last night for my husband's birthday with another couple. The food was okay, no rave reviews. The setting is very nice. Our waitress kept calling us "you guys". That may be okay in a casual diner, but it isn't appropriate in...More
